Oprah Films Her Australian Shows - Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe And Bono Amongst The Guests

14 December 2010

Oprah Winfrey has finished filming her two special Australian shows at the Opera House.

Her morning show featured appearances by Russell Crowe and Terri and Bindi Irwin, and a special performance by US rockers Bon Jovi.

And her famous giveaways were definitely present, with those in attendance receiving pearl necklaces.

Oprah gave $250,000 to cancer suffered Kristian Anderson and his wife, telling them to take a year off and enjoy their lives.

And the students at Canterbury Boys School had a surprise visit from Jay-Z, with Oprah giving the school $1 million worth of laptops and an upgrade to their music facilities.

But this wasn't all Oprah had in store -- she had a second show to film!

And it wasn't off to the best of starts, with Hugh Jackman injuring himself when he entered Oprah's stage via a flying fox! He hurt his eye in the incident, but was well enough to chat to Oprah not long after.

Hugh managed to get Oprah to try some Vegemite, and Oprah declared, "I like it!"

U2 star Bono made an appearance, and Oprah continued her trend of massive giveaways by giving the crowd diamond necklaces.
