Hugh Jackman, the actor, urges people to wear sunscreen; he has had skin cancer SIX times.

Hugh Jackman, best known as Wolverine in the X-Men film series, may play a superhuman, but the 53-year-old is just like anybody else regarding cancer. The celebrity has battled the condition several times.

Hugh Jackman was diagnosed with skin cancer for the first time in 2013; he has now been diagnosed with the same illness six times. Last year, the father of two had another biopsy to remove the malignant tumour.

“First and foremost, thank you, everyone, for your tremendous support,” Jackman wrote on social media. Jackman, photographed with a plaster on his nose, continued, “I got so much support for the biopsy I just had.”
