Proving the Australian party animal stereotype to be pretty accurate, Hugh Jackman headed over to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” for a fun-filled interview last night (May 21).

The “Les Miserables” hunk was goaded into a beer cooler scooter race by Fallon, who explained the whole segment as a way to kick off the upcoming patriotic holiday.

Jimmy declared, “This Friday marks the start of Memorial Day weekend. And what's more American than beating an Australian in a good old fashioned cooler scooter race?” Jackman replied, “Bring it on!” before actually defeating Fallon by a wide margin.

Earlier in the day, Jackman dropped by “Live with Kelly and Michael” to plug his new movie “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” and even discussed his nude scene in the flick. “It wasn’t written as a nude scene. The scene has Wolverine, because the whole premise of the movie is it has Wolverine traveling back in time to prevent something cataclysmic happening in the future. So I land back in 1973. I wake up — this is what the script says — wake up next to a girl who I don’t remember, and I get out of bed wearing boxer shorts.”

“I don’t know about America, but in Australia, if you are next to a really good looking girl, you’re not getting out with boxer shorts on or briefs, or anything! So, yeah, I went commando and we just went for it.”
