On Thursday, the actor who plays Wolverine in the comic-based franchise posted a picture of himself on Instagram with the message, "Another Basel Cell Carsinoma. All out now. Thanks Dr. Albom and Dr. Arian. PLEASE! PLEASE! WEAR SUNSCREEN!"
While he might be a little loose on the spelling of basal cell carcinoma, the actor's message was right on target when it comes to preventing the skin cancer, which is less serious than melanoma but still of concern. Jackman was echoing a statement he'd first delivered in November, when he had a similar growth removed from the tip of his nose.
"Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked," Jackman said at the time. "And USE sunscreen!!!" Deborra Lee Furness, his wife of 18 years, had urged him to see a dermatologist.
On the red carpet Saturday, likening the reporters who crowded around him to his dermatologist coming in for a really close look, he repeated: "It's all out now, get checkups, wear sunscreen."
