Hugh Jackman Toasts Drink After Kicking Cancer’s Ass For Sixth Time

Hugh Jackman confirmed he had been treated for skin cancer for the sixth time.

The X-Men star took to Instagram at the time to explain doctors had found and removed another basal cell carcinoma – the fifth on his nose.

Using the opportunity to share his story with his 10 million followers, he shared a photo of his bandaged nose, writing: “Another basal cell carcinoma. Thanks to frequent body checks and amazing doctors, all is well. Looks worse with the dressing on than off. I swear!”

Now, after six bouts of the cancer, it seems Jackman is taking the opportunity to celebrate life.

Still sporting a nose bandage, the 48-year-old was seen toasting a drink to Brazil and Carnival while fulfilling promotional duties for his upcoming film Logan in the South American country.

Sharing a video of him drinking to good health, Jackman told his followers: “Thank you São Paulo, thank you Brazil. Happy Carnival! Health!”


Obrigado São Paulo, obrigado Brasil, feliz carnaval! Saúde! #wponx @20thcenturyfox

His advice to all of us? Wear sunscreen.
