After spending Mother's Day with wife Deborra-Lee Furness and their two kids in N.Y.C., Hugh Jackman hopped on a plane and headed to Los Angeles on Sunday, and despite his recent skin cancer scare (his second in the last 6 months!) the actor was in good spirits.
Last week the 45-year-old star posted a selfie on Instagram on Thursday and revealed that he had another spot of skin cancer removed, and he's been covering up the area with a band-aid for the last few days. “Another Basel Cell Carsinoma [sic]," he wrote. "All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!” Last year Jackman had a basal-cell carcinoma removed from the same location on his nose, so hopefully this is the last of it!
"We are all human, this happened to me, I didn't wear sun screen when I was a kid," he added when he chatted with ABC News at the premiere of X-Men: Days of Future Past over the weekend. "I don't want kids to be as stupid as me and maybe they'll listen to Wolverine more than they'll listen to teachers at school."
Hugh continued, "It's all preventable. I was lucky to be in a job, where I have makeup artists looking at my face, going, 'What is that?' And my wife nagging me to go and get it checked out."
