Hugh Jackman has long been regarded as one of Australia’s most in-demand – not to mention handsome – Hollywood exports.
At 47, he’s as big a heartthrob as he’s ever been.
However, the actor’s latest look has shocked and surprised fans, who have expressed concerns for his health.
Taking to Instagram, Hugh shared a photo of himself giving the thumbs up in front of a platter of barbecued fish.
But it was his dramatically aged face that had everyone talking!
‘Man, Wolverine isn’t supposed to age,’ wrote one follower of the onscreen superhero, while another asked the question: ‘R u ok??’
Not only is Hugh looking much older in the pic due to the presence of wrinkles around his eyes, but his skin tone is much more freckly, his hairline appears to have been raised and his beard features grey hairs.
The actor is currently reprising his Marvel character Wolverine for the eighth and final time, in the as-yet-untitled third spin-off of the X-Men franchise, leading many to speculate that he is in fact wearing ageing make-up to film a scene.
Indeed, the actor himself revealed last year that the final film will be based on the Old Man Logan comic book storyline.
