    I hope this carcinoma doesn’t appear on other places at such a sexy body. Hugh Jackman is a great actor, handsome man and I wish him long and happy life. Yes, Australians are known for skin problems due to the exposure to the sun, but this doesn’t mean, however, people in other countries are free of this. Yes, listen it the Hugh’s piece of advice, protect your skin with SPF creams – think of your health and well-being!

    Hugh, you are such a lucky man to have such a caring wife, who insisted on your visit to the doctor. I hope the problem is gone and will never get back to you. You are a perfect actor and I would like to see many new movies with your in the cast. Bless you, man!
