Everything OK? A new photo of Hugh Jackman looking much older is raising eyebrows and making the rounds online.
The Australian actor, 47, shared the snapshot via Instagram on Wednesday, August 10. In the pic, he shows off a much smaller frame and rocks a gray beard while standing in front of a plate of cooked fish.
Jackman, who often posts pics of his buff Wolverine body, appeared to be getting ready or just getting back from a workout. He wore a black zip-up jacket and had his headphones plugged into his iPhone as he gave the camera a thumbs-up.
“Now that’s what I’m talking about!” he captioned the post.
Fans quickly took notice of Jackman’s new look and voiced their concern. “Hugh Jackman is looking really old these days. What’s going on with Jackman’s face?” one commenter wrote. A second added: “Are you sick?… please take care.”
Another chimed in: “Wow r u ok u look a little frail.”
Jackman’s transformation might just be for a movie role. The hunky star is currently shooting the third Wolverine movie in Louisiana. The film is set in the postapocalyptic future and will center on the Wolverine comic book story line “Old Man Logan.”
Jackman previously played Wolverine in X-Men, X-Men 2, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Wolverine. In March 2015, he revealed that the upcoming film would be his last.
“WOLVERINE …ONE LAST TIME. HJ,” he captioned an Instagram pic of Wolverine’s claws at the time.
