Nothing can take down Hugh Jackman. Not mutants, sentinels, that terrible first Wolverine movie and definitely not skin cancer. Jackman tells Access Hollywood that the red patch he found on his nose which turned out to be basal cell carcinoma was removed and he’s in the clear.
“I’m all good! It’s all out,” the actor told Access Hollywood at the David Lynch Foundation Presents: Change Begins Within Benefit Gala in New York City on Tuesday. “Thank you to my beautiful wife who said, ‘Come on, go and get it checked.’
“It was just a red dot on my nose and I was like, maybe I injured it in a fight sequence or something, and lo and behold it wasn’t – It was a basal cell carcinoma,” he continued. “I’m an Aussie, we have to get checked but everyone should get checked. Particularly if you’re my age. If you’re 21 or older, you just go and get checked. It’s simple.”
A bonus on getting that red patch removed is now his kids will stop calling him Rudolph. Those jerks.
