Road to recovery! Hugh Jackman made his first red carpet appearance since revealing on Instagram Nov. 21 that he underwent treatment for skin cancer on his nose. The 45-year-old actor wore a small band-aid on his nose while attending the David Lynch Foundation Presents: Change Begins Within Benefit Gala in New York City on Tuesday, Dec. 3.

Jackman flashed a big smile to photographers while proudly posing on the red carpet. The Wolverine star looked handsome in a dark suit while standing beside wife Deborra-Lee Furness at the Conrad New York hotel. Jackman has wife of 17 years to thank for convincing him to go to a doctor for a mark on his nose.

"Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right!" Jackman captioned a photo of himself with a large bandage on his nose on Instagram Nov. 21. "I had a basil cell carcinoma. Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!"

At the event Tuesday, Jackman and Furness, 57, chatted with Us Weekly about family bonding with children Ava and Oscar through meditation.

"I said [to one our our teachers] what do we do with the kids if we want to meditate?" Jackman recalled about how they started meditating together. "He said, 'Just be quiet in the house and tell the kids they don't have to meditate' -- they were young. But say, 'There's no TV, there's no talking, you can read, do whatever you want.' And what we found is we would meditate."

"They just sit in a room with us," Furness explained. "They loved it . . . They would be upset when the time ended. They sit there, they'd draw. They knew that they had to be quiet, but it made us all be together without using words or anything. But energetically we were all together sitting comfortably in our truth which is what this meditation is."

Jackman added: "We got used to a quiet time together in the house. Now they're sort of naturally getting into it. Meditation has changed our lives."
