Hugh Jackman's fans were taken aback after he shared a photo on Instagram and Twitter of himself sporting a mullet, but the handsome actor was quick to explain the reason for his dramatic new look was for his upcoming role as Vincent in the sci-fi movie Chappie.
"Day 1 on Chappie! Vincent is born, rocking the mullet," he captioned the photo. "Working with Neill Blomkamp in SA. This film is rad".
The 45-year-old actor has just begun filming in Johannesburg alongside Sigourney Weaver, who also stars in the film about a kidnapped robot.
This is not the first time that Hugh's hair has caught fans' attention, as for his role in Wolverine he sported thick sideburns.
