Hugh Jackman Photo Frightens Fans: Has His Cancer Returned?

by at .  Updated at .

Hugh Jackman is one of the best looking people on the planet.

This really isn't too much of an exaggeration.

When looking at a photo of the actor, most people remark upon how attractive he is.

Or perhaps they consider his career and talk about his versatility.

This is a man, after all, who can belt it out on Broadway with the best of them.. and then tear bad guys to shreds as Wolverine.

But a Facebook photo of Jackman that went viral this week doesn't have fans discussing any of his past roles; nor are they drooling over his chiseled physique.

Instead, they are asking one simple question:


Hugh Jackman Looks Old

The above picture depicts the beloved star standing over some freshly cooked fish.

He has earbuds in one ear and he's giving the camera a triumphant thumbs up.

“Now that’s what I’m talking about!” he captioned the image.

But the perpetually youthful Australian looks old, doesn't he? He appears haggard, wouldn't you say?

Some followers have simply pointed to the fact that he's currently shooting the third Wolverine standalone film and he's probably just in makeup from the shoot.

We certainly hope that's the case.

Because the alternative is that maybe Jackman's skin cancer has returned.

In May of 2014, Jackman shared the following photograph online, warning fans to get themselves checked for this disease because he had had a recurrence.

Jackman posted a similar selfie in November of 2013, writing as a caption back then:

"I had [basal] cell carcinoma. Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!"

Here is a look at that old image:

Chances are strong that Jackson is doing just fine and this is the Internet doing what the Internet so often does:

Overreacting to something and expressing panic.

But at least that panic is out of genuine concern for one of the most popular actors out there this time around.

Because when it come to Hugh Jackman, we want him around for many decades to come, singing at the top of his lungs and/or looking like this:

Seriously, this picture is not Photoshopped.

The guy is a machine.
