'We went to see the movie and all I remember from it was the monkey scene at the end,' the actor said of the film.

'I was so terrified that I hid in front at my father's feet behind, so I was hiding and crying through the thing and it absolutely, completely tortured me,' he admitted.

Hugh added that The Wicked Witch traumatised him so much that was left with nightmares from the movie, joking that he 'didn't sleep for five years' as a result.

'It's a miracle I ever went back to be honest. I've probably still got PTSD from it,' he added.  

It comes after Hugh recently showed off his competitive side with wife Deborra-Lee Furness at their New York home, in a short video shared to his Instagram.

The Sydney-born star hid behind a pole in their West Village penthouse after winning a game of Backgammon against a disappointed Deborra-Lee, 65.
