Hugh Jackman, 52, has given his seal of approval after watching Prince Harry’s latest documentary-series The Me You Can’t See with Oprah Winfrey, which focuses on mental health. The highly-anticipated series follows his wife Meghan Markle’s tell-all interview with the legendary chat show host, and sees celebrities and everyday people talk about their own struggles with mental health.
Harry, 36, opens up about growing up as a member of the Royal Family, revealing some deep, and painful truths about his life.
In one episode, pop-star Lady Gaga, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, revealed the trauma of being raped which left her pregnant at age 19.
Other notable participants include NBA players DeMar DeRozan and Langston Galloway, boxer Virginia Fuchs and celebrity chef Rashad Armstead.
After the series premiered on Apple TV last Friday, viewers took to social media to have their say, with many praising the prince and those involved for their candid and brutally honest interviews.
Among those who in favour of it, was actor Hugh Jackman, who took to Twitter to encourage his fans and followers to watch the “inspiring” series.
He penned on Wednesday: “I recommend, so highly, the new @AppleTV series from @Oprah and #PrinceHarry called #TheMeYouCantSee.
“Mental health is all too often met with a stigma. This needs to change. Right now.”
After the success of the series, the Duke of Sussex and the media mogul are set to continue their mission to raise awareness with a virtual town hall featuring Lady Gaga, Glenn Close and others.

While Hugh praised Harry for the powerful discussion, he also touched on the brave honesty of his pal and fellow actor Ryan Reynolds who, for the first time, shared his own battle with anxiety amid mental health awareness month.
Hugh added at the end of his tweet: “And to @VancityReynolds, my brother, I couldn’t be more proud and inspired by your honesty.”
Ryan was praised by his 37.6million Instagram followers for openly discussing his battle with anxiety.
He shared to social media a moving post with no adjoining photo, which read: “May is almost over. It’s also Mental Health Awareness month. Which brings me to…
“One of the reasons I’m posting this so late is I over schedule myself and important things slip. And one of the reasons I over schedule myself is my lifelong pal, anxiety.
“I know I’m not alone and more important, to all those like me who over schedule, overthink, overwork, over-worry and over-everything, please know you’re not alone.”
The Deadpool actor concluded: “We don’t talk enough about mental health and don’t do enough to destigmatize talking about it. But, as with this post, better late than never, I hope…”
Anxiety is a mental health disorder “characterized by feelings of worry, anxiety, or fear that are strong enough to interfere with one’s daily activities,” according to the Mayo Clinic.
