I can't tell if Hugh Jackman is trying to show off his salt-and-pepper beard or the ocean in these photos.
Early this morning, the actor shared a series of three selfies to Instagram. He's on a boat (whether in his native Australia or somewhere more tropical is unclear), wearing aviator sunglasses and grinning like a madman.
The caption includes a simple ocean wave emoji; there's no other context to this post.
Forget the color of the water and the I didn't even know the ocean could be that perfect cerulean blue -- I am just tickled by the pure dad-ness of these photos. Jackman's even got that signature person-over-40 selfie camera angle down pat. It's just an Aussie silver fox, living his best life. Isn't that what we all want?
If we didn't know any better, we'd think these were photos of our fun uncle who hit some kind of jackpot in the stock market and retired early, content with becoming the envy of his friends and family while he sails his new boat around the world. He grows a beard, embraces sunburns and treats himself to a cigar once a week.
...Yes, we want to be that fun uncle.
Drop your location, Hugh -- we'll meet you there.
