Australian actor Hugh Jackman arrives for the "Prisoners" screening at the 38th Toronto International Film Festival in Toronto September 6, 2013.

There was nothing sexy about Hugh Jackman’s recent Instagram photo  that showed off his bandaged nose after he reportedly had cancerous cells removed.

According to an article in Reuters, the 45-year-old Australian actor was diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma, cancerous cells that grow on the surface of the skin.

“Please don’t be foolish like me. Get yourself checked. And USE sunscreen!!!” said Jackman in the Instagram caption posted on Wednesday.
