    Lingering paparazzi are proving to be more of a blessing than a curse for Hugh Jackman.

    Not only did the Prisoners star reveal that a photog helped him find his lost son recently, but another paparazzo came to Jackman's rescue this week when he tried to buy a toy for his son in Berlin and his credit card wouldn't work.

    After noticing the 44-year-old thesp left the store toy-less Thursday, the paparazzo bought the item for the actor and surprised him with the gift.

    And Jackman, who was all smiles as he accepted the toy, seemed to really appreciate the gesture.

    Jackman recently praised the paparazzi after his son went missing during a family outing at Sydney's Bronte Beach and a photog found 13-year-old Oscar in a tree.

    "I've never been so happy to have paparazzi follow me," Jackman said, according to the UK Express.

    Following yet another positive experience with the paps, the 44-year-old thesp headed to Spain Friday for the 2013 San Sebastian International Film Festival, where he received the Donostia Award Friday in San Sebastian.

    "I have to say how humbly grateful and how surprised I am to receive this award," Jackman said in a press conference after receiving the lifetime achievement honor.

    "It means a lot to me for many reasons. It is a rare thing as an actor to take a moment and look back at sometime, you always tend to think ahead to the future."
