Hugh Jackman has revealed his attempt at Chinese song baffled Rupert Murdoch's wife.

The Aussie actor is currently in Shanghai to shoot scenes for director Wayne Wang's Snow Flower And The Secret Fan, in which his character breaks into song in Chinese, and joked his pronunciation was lost on the movie's producer Wendi Murdoch, who is Chinese-born.

"I sang it and the very first couple of syllables she was like, 'great,' and then gradually she said like, 'what?'" he said.

"But I think I got at least one take," he laughed.

The movie is based on Lisa See's novel by the same name, which follows the friendship of two women in 1800s China.
