Hugh Jackman Is Treated for Skin Cancer for Third Time
The Wolverine star has another basal cell carcinoma removed – his third within the last year
Hugh Jackman is hoping his third visit to the doctor for skin cancer treatment will be his last, after having yet another basal cell carcinoma removed, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.
This time, instead of a selfie, Jackman posted an image of the spoken-word song “Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)” and captioned it simply: “SUNSCREEN!”
Jackman’s rep says the Tony and Emmy winner is “okay now” following this latest procedure. (This type of skin cancer is very treatable, but must be caught early.) Following the other two procedures, Jackman urged fans to get themselves checked.
“Please don’t be foolish like me,” he wrote at one point. “And USE sunscreen!!!”
