“Man, she was right!” exclaimed Hugh Jackman. It was 2013 when the famous actor who plays Wolverine posted a curious photo in which he appeared with a strange patch on his nose. In the text that accompanied the image, the Australian actor thanked Deborra-Lee (his now ex-wife), who had told him to go to the doctor to check a spot that had appeared on the part of his face that he was wearing a mask.

It turns out that that little spot was nothing less than basal cell carcinoma, a mild form of skin cancer. In the post, Jackman said that he had already undergone surgery, implying that the problem had already been solved. However, that would only be the first chapter in a 10-year long story.

A decade later, in July 2024, Jackman is divorced, with no signs of the cancer returning and with a big movie about to be released: Deadpool and Wolverine, the third installment of the saga that introduces both him and Ryan Reynolds to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

But how did the actor manage to beat cancer, separate from the woman who had been with him for almost 30 years, and endure an intense exercise routine to get back into shape for his character in X-Men?

Hugh Jackman and his history with cancer

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, “more than 9,500 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with skin cancer every day” and “at least one in five Americans will develop skin cancer before age 70.” Among those numbers was Hugh Jackman, who shocked the world with the news in 2013.
