Avast, ye mateys! What’s that we spy on the horizon? Round, white, and glistening in the sun — it must be Hugh Jackman’s bald head!
The Aussie actor, who’s used to sporting lots more hair as X-Men’s Wolverine, shed his coat for his latest role. Eyes hooded in what we can only assume is his “pirate selfie face,” Hugh shared his new cueball look on Instagram. Thankfully, he also gave us a hint as to what happened to all his hair up there.
“Blackbeard is born. #PAN,” he writes.
That’d be Pan as in a new reboot of the classic fairy tale (because we couldn’t just make Hook and call it good). Also starring Hugh’s Les Misérables co-star Amanda Seyfried as Mary, this is the film that made headlines a few months ago because Rooney Mara landed the spot of Native American princess Tiger Lily. Feel free to reopen that debate in the comments below.
Thankfully for us Hugh fans, the hair people over on Pan waited until after Hugh’s gig hosting the 2014 Tonys to get rid of his locks. We would have sincerely missed seeing the wind blow through his well-groomed 'do as he pirouetted his way across the stage.
