Hugh Jackman saved Zac Efron from a burning building

We're kind of jealous TBH.

As if a sentence involving both Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron wasn’t perfect enough, why not try add one saving the other’s life by carrying them from a burning building into the mix?

No, this isn’t the plot to some elaborate Hollywood movie.

But, it did happen on the filmset of the plot to some elaborate Hollywood movie.

See, Hugh and Zac are currently filming The Greatest Showman (a musical in which Hugh plays a renowned magician and Zac his mere assistant) together and in once scene Hugh does actually carry Zac’s character out of a burning building.

Despite a crew of pyrotechnics being on hand to manage the flames, Zac Efron has revealed that things went a little off script and Hugh actually did end up saving his life.

Speaking to MTV News the star of Baywatch said: ‘It started to get late, and some of the pyrotechnics got a little bit too hot. We burst out of the building. It looked great on camera. We didn’t know it, but it was pretty intense. I watched playback, and he saved me from a burning building. It later exploded that night. It was a set, but it later burned down.’

How does it feel to have the Hugh Jackman (AKA Wolverine) save you from a burning building? ‘It was pretty awesome. Hugh Jackman saving you from a burning building? It’s every girl’s dream.’

Urm, yeah Zac. You can say that again.
