Hugh Jackman shares very candid 50th birthday photo

Hugh Jackman shares very candid 50th birthday photo

On his 50th birthday, Hugh Jackman has struck again. The Hollywood star has always been refreshingly down-to-earth, and like so many other stars, he’s made good use of social media to show this and make plenty of fun of himself.

The actor posted a very candid shot of himself on his Instagram account where he can be seen having a lovely snooze on a sun-bed, with a not-so-flattering expression on his face, and his loyal French bulldog Dali perched beside him.

Jackman candidly captioned the photo: “When people tell you ‘you don’t look 50’ part of you believes it ... until you see yourself sleeping’.”

It’s not the first time Jackman has made fun of his age. Last month, the actor shared a comical shot of himself wearing the Genius Light mask made by Taika.

According to the company’s website, the mask – which retails at $AU534 – “brings together all the benefits of patented Swiss micro current stimulations technologies combined to its famous Light Therapy, in an easy to wear face device.”

The mask is supposed to fight the ageing process, tackling the likes of wrinkles, age spots, dark spots and blemishes, reported the Daily Mail.

The handsome star, known for his fitness and ageless appearance, cheekily captioned the picture: “Coming up on 50...I'll try anything.”

Jackman has previously said his wish for celebrating his big birthday milestone is a low-key dinner party.

“I’d probably like a dinner party for 10,” he told Who magazine, despite his wife Deborra-Lee Furness wanting to do something grander.

“We’re going to meet somewhere in the middle,” The Greatest Showman star added. “We’ll do something and it’s going to be fun. But no speeches. No speeches.”
