Hugh Jackman Puts On A Brave Face After Second Bout With Skin Cancer

May 12, 2014 11:59 AM


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."

We knew Hugh Jackman was buff, but those veins don't even look human!

Over the weekend the Wolverine star hung out with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness and their kids, Ava and Oscar, in New York City, and he showed off his ripped arms while strolling around after brunch. The previous day Hugh took the couple's two children to shoot hoops near their home, and he even lifted up little Ava so she could score a basket. Awww!

Of course, his arms weren't the only thing we were looking at ... his French bulldog pup is too cute!

On Wednesday evening Hugh Jackman made an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman, and the 44-year-old star flashed us a series of silly expressions outside of the New York City studio. Hugh chatted about his role in Les Miserables, which has him nominated for an Academy Award for Best Lead Actor.

The Aussie actor walked onto the stage with a fake beard and a top hat and gave his very best Abraham Lincoln impression, and he even made a light-hearted jab at fellow nominee Daniel Day-Lewis.

Think Wolverine has what it takes to beat out the two-time Oscar winner (and five-time nominee)? This may be Hugh's first nomination, but he seems to think so!

Hugh Jackman Cries On 60 Mins Explaining The Abandonment Of His Mother

Dec 11, 2012 09:40 AM

Hugh Jackman is a world famous action star, but that doesn't mean he's too macho to shed a tear!

In an emotional new 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday Dec. 9, the Les Miserables star opens up about his mother abandoning him when he was 8-years-old, leaving him without a maternal figure in his life.

    "I can remember the morning she left, it's weird the things you pick up. I remember her being in a towel around her head and saying goodbye, must have been the way she said goodbye. As I went off to school, when I came back, there was no one there in the house. The next day there was a telegram from England, Mom was there. And then that was it. I don't think she thought for a second it would be forever. I think she thought it was, 'I just need to get away, and I'll come back.' Dad used to pray every night that Mom would come back," he divulged.

The Wolverine actor's mother relocated to England and never returned, leaving his father, Chris, responsible for raising him and his four other siblings.

"My father is a rock. My father is my rock. It's where I learned everything about loyalty, dependability, being there day in, day out, no matter what," he added.

Now father to his own two children, the happily married Aussie hunk maintains he has his priorities straight when it comes to balancing work and family, explaining, "It's always about the family. It's not about work."

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger, Hugh!
