Los Angeles – It was supposed to be all about Hugh Jackman and his "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" cohorts when they all hit the red carpet for the Hollywood premiere of that rollicking new Marvel Comics adventure flim, but when Mel Gibson showed up sans his estranged wife Robyn, naturally everyone had to pay attention.

Gibson has pretty much been hiding out since his embarrassing drunk driving arrest and the consequent breakup of his 29-year marriage. All eyes were on the ex-superstar, and checking out his Russian galpal, singer Oksana Grigorieva, who seemed a bit overwhelmed, scowling at photographers as she clung to his hand on their first public outing since Gibson's official split with his wife.

Not so the case with Hugh Jackman, who lit up the street in front of Grauman's Chinese Theater Wednesday, April 29, happily greeting his "Wolverine" co-stars including Danny Huston,, Lynn Collins, Dominic Monaghan, Kevin Durand, and Ryan Reynolds.

Jackman's pal Halle Berry made the scene, too, along with Amanda Peet, Kelsey Grammer, Anjelica Huston, Mary Lynn Rajskub, and Fergie.

It was a glittery crowd for sure, which may have added to the normally easygoing Jackman's worries about how "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," which opens Friday May 1, will be received. This time out in this fourth installment of the "X-Men" franchise, Jackman not only stars, but is also one of the producers.

"Everything I do, there's no less effort or desire that goes into every role," he told reporters at an earlier press conference. "Every film has that sense for me as an actor, but obviously this movie has a different dimension particularly as a producer. I am more nervous about it because I feel that it's more personal to me. It's more my baby. I want people to come and have a great time."
