the tourism industry enlisted Hogan for a series of television ads promoting the Australian. The advertisement featuring the phrase "shrimp on the barbie"

That 's not a knife
Hogan's became an international success with his role as Mick "Crocodile" Dundee in the 1986 film Crocodile Dundee and in 1988 with Crocodile Dundee II, when in the film uttered the words "That's not a knife. This is a knife."

Many may not know but Hogan has been married twice before and fathered 6 children. The second divorce initiated in 1986, becoming one of Australia's ugliest in celebrity circles when Hogan married his Crocodile Dundee co-star Linda Kozlowski in 1990.

Battle with Australian Tax office
On 20 August 2010, Hogan flew to Sydney for his mother's funeral. Upon arrival he was issued a Departure Prohibition Order by the Australian Taxation Office, which prevented him leaving the country until his alleged tax debt was paid or settled. The nation's tax office claims he owes taxes on A$37.5 million of undeclared income
In October 2008, Hogan scored a major victory in his tax fight with the Australian Crime Commission, who were forced to pay up to an estimated A$5 million for legal bills dating back to 2006
.
In November 2010, the Australian Tax Office dropped its criminal investigation of him and his business manager for tax evasion.
In January 2011, it was announced that Hogan is suing the Australian government, his lawyer stating that Hogan's "earning potential and reputation has been decimated describing the Australian Tax Office to the Taliban and referred to staff as 'a-holes'.
