A sobbing stalker reportedly threw an electric razor filled with her own pubic hair at Hugh Jackman while he was working out at Gotham Gym in the West Village, according to a New York Post exclusive report.

The Post described the stalker as blond and wearing khaki pants and a blue hoodie, and identified her as 47-year-old Kathleen Thurston.

Thurston reportedly snuck past the check-in desk while hysterically sobbing, found Jackman and shouted, “I love you!” before reaching into her waistband and lobbing the razor at him.

Jackman reportedly backed away, thinking she was reaching for a knife or a gun.

Thurston was reportedly physically removed from the gym, and arrested at 14th Street and 8th Avenue.

The Post reported that the NYPD Crime Scene Unit had to pick hairs out of the razor to match then to Thurston’s DNA.

Jackman reportedly said he has seen Thurston outside his 7-year-old daughter’s school in Manhattan, and she had previously shown up at his home, but he did not have a restraining order against her.

Thurston has no prior criminal history. The Post said her listed address was a Harlem shelter for the mentally ill.

As of Saturday night, she was awaiting arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court.
