Welp, that’s a thing. In case you were wondering why Hugh Jackman opted for a very bushy beard at this weekend’s Tony Awards instead of trimming it down a bit or going clean shaven, we have our answer!
Hugh was preparing for his role as Blackbeard in Joe Wright‘s new re-imagining of Peter Pan, simply called Pan.
Hugh shared the above photo on Instagram today with the caption, “Blackbeard is born. #PAN”
What a straightforward hashtag. I quite like it. In fact, I’m gonna start using it for no reason. So, I’m OK with his Blackbeard beard, that seems normal. But oh my god Hugh Jackman is bald! I don’t think I’ve ever seen this before. I can’t decide if I like it.
I mean, but here’s the thing, he’s Hugh Jackman. Bald, awkward long hair, metal claws–he’s hot. But this movie should be a trip. So what do we think of bald, bearded Hugh? Is it up your alley or are you looking forward to short hair and clean shaven? Sound off in the comments below!
