Hugh Jackman has given away a whopping $1.2 million dollars to the staff at boot retailer R.M. Williams, according to a new report. 

The actor, 51, who until recently owned a five percent share in the Australian footwear and clothing company, gave a cash gift to 900 employees at the firm, The Courier Mail reported on Sunday. 

Staffers at the Adelaide-based company went home with a $1300 Christmas bonus from an ‘anonymous shareholder’.

The Courier Mail believes Hugh, who sold his stake in the company in October, is that anonymous donor. 

The paper reports that R.M. Williams would not confirm the identity of the shareholder, but did say that ‘a former R.M. Williams shareholder has provided staff with a cash gift.’ 

In October, the X-Men star, who is also an ambassador for R.M. Williams, bared all in a hilarious new advertisement for the brand.

The Hollywood star wore nothing but a pair of short black boots as he starred in the label’s new TV campaign.

In the video, Hugh is first seen sitting in an office chair and explaining why he loves the boots.

‘I’m actually in love. They’re great. They’re amazing,’ the actor said before spreading his legs open on the desk.

The brand’s representative then tells Hugh: ‘While we appreciate how literally you’ve taken the clause that stipulates you can only wear R.M. Williams.

‘I want you to know that you are allowed and we highly encourage you to wear other clothes.’

Hugh appears to ignore the advice and then starts explaining why he loves wearing the boots.

Hugh then begins to stand up to leave the room but stops to compliment how comfortable the chair is.

‘A new chair? Honestly you should sit in this,’ the Wolverine star said while moving around in his seat.

‘Everything at R.M. Williams is just so comfortable,’ he ended the conversation.
