While stopping by to chat with David Letterman on Wednesday's The Late Show, the Oscar nominee didn't hesitate to explain why he opted to appear looking very much like a certain U.S. president.

"It's grubby. I'm not proud of it. I wanted to sway a few last-minute Oscar voters. I'll be honest," said the Les Misérables star.

Jackman then asked, "I mean, really, can Daniel Day-Lewis do this?" before singing part of the Gettysburg Address.

Cute? Definitely. A little late? Yeah, kinda.

Unfortunately for Jackman, Oscar voting ended on Tuesday.
