Actor Hugh Jackman has brought his star power to leather boots retailer RM Williams by investing in the iconic Australian brand.
The clothing and leather goods company announced the investment on Thursday, saying it was proud to have the Wolverine and Les Miserables star as a shareholder.
“R.M. Williams is proud to have Hugh Jackman as a shareholder.
“It is the strong view of the company that with the support of its shareholders there is a unique opportunity to take R.M. Williams and the iconic Adelaide-made boots, to a global customer,” the Sydney-based company, fully owned by fashion giant Louis Vuitton since late last year, said.
The size of Jackman’s investment was not disclosed.
RM Williams provided the outfits for the 2008 outback film epic, Australia, which starred Jackman and Oscar winner Nicole Kidman.
