Hugh Jackman must have quite the healing factor.

Today on his personal Instagram page, the Australian actor best known for X-Men's Wolverine, stated that he was recently treated for skin cancer.


This is Jackman's fifth cancer removed in two years. He went public with his brush with the disease last year with People, saying it was a shock just hearing the word "cancer".

"Being an Australian it's a very common thing," he said. "I never wore sunscreen growing up so I was a prime candidate for it." Jackman in his latest Instagram post hammers in the importance of sun screen.

We wish him the best of luck and a speedy recovery.
