What has happened to Hugh Jackman? Eek!

There are many male celebs in this world that you can rely on to look completely gorgeous at all times; David Beckham, Chris Hemsworth and until now, Hugh Jackman.

We almost spat out our coffee this morning when these pictures landed on our desks.

Gone are his long flowing, shiny locks.

Gone is his perfectly chiselled face.

Instead they have been replaced with scraggly, unwashed hair and a thick, bushy beard.

He looked more like Mr Twit from our favourite childhood book than the Mr Jackman we all know and love.

Eek!

Luckily, these pictures are not of Hugh in his day to day life. Phew!

They are in fact pictures of the Hollywood hunk on the set of his new movie 'The Wolverine' which he has been filming in New South Wales, Australia.

A gruff looking Jackman is reprising his role of X-Man Wolverine in the sequel the 2009 box office smash 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'.

The film follows Wolverine as he travels to Japan to learn the way of the Samurai, so expect to see some sword wielding action from the man himself when the film hits cinemas next year.

Let's just hope that the swoonable Hugh Jackman still remains beneath THAT beard!
