LOS ANGELES -- Hugh Jackman threw himself a birthday party with 4,500 guests, but they had to pay to attend.
The actor spent his 45th birthday Saturday at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre, where he sang, danced and told stories for "One Night Only," a benefit concert that raised $1.85 million for the Motion Picture & Television Fund.
Cybill Shepherd, Bryan Singer, Darren Criss and songwriter Carole Bayer Sager were among the famous faces in the audience for the two-and-a-half-hour show, which ended with Jackman auctioning off an electric Fiat, a pair of Wolverine claws and two sweaty undershirts he wore during his performance. (The shirts went for $11,000 each.)
The Motion Picture & Television Fund provides health care and other essential services to entertainment-industry workers and retirees.
