Hugh Jackman Posted Epic #ThrowbackThursday

Talk about a transformation!

Hugh Jackman posted a jaw-dropping Instagram snap for his 7.4 million followers in which he appears to look a lot older looking.

The 47-year-old actor looked dramatically aged with wrinkles on his face, sunken eyes and grey whiskers as he gave the camera a thumbs-up.

"Now that's what I'm talking about," Jackman captioned the photo while giving no explanation for his new look.

Several fans commented the hunky Australian celeb might be wearing makeup for a new movie.

Jackman, who is an avid user of Instagram, recently posted a throwback photo that also went viral. In the funny snap, a young Jackman flashed a big smile in his college graduation photo.
