Hugh Jackman, who played "Wolverine" in recent "X-Men" movies, was hit in the crotch while playing cricket in his native Australia over the weekend, weeks after he suffered an eye injury during a botched stunt for an Oprah Winfrey special.

The 42-year-old actor was unharmed and told Shane Warne, the cricket player who threw the ball, "Don't wear boxer shorts when you're playing cricket."

Several months ago, actress Elizabeth Hurley split from husband Arun Nayar after reports surfaced that she was having an affair with Warne. UK tabloid photos showed the two kissing and the pair was also spotted after spending two nights together in a London hotel. Both have not commented on the reports.

Jackman suffered a minor eye injury earlier this month during a botched stunt for Oprah Winfrey's special "Oprah's Ultimate Australian Adventure." He had hit the brakes too late while making a dramatic entrance on a sliding cable from the top of the Sydney Opera House.
