Hugh Jackman revealed he had skin cancer yesterday by posting this pic to Instagram then thanking his wife for staring at his nose and saying, "WTF is that? No, seriously. What is that? Ewww wipe it off. So gross. What? You can't? You have cancer. Why is there a passlock on your phone? Who the fuck is 'Rachel'?"
Deb said to get the mark on my nose checked. Boy, was she right! I had a basil cell carcinoma. Please don't be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!
One of my best friends got skin cancer at 27, but he's also extremely white, so it helps to use sunscreen and to not be white. It also helps if you have a mutant healing factor that regenerates damaged or destroyed tissues of your body far beyond the capabilities of an ordinary human. Turns out Hugh Jackman just plays a character who has that and doesn't have that himself.
