Shirtless Hugh Jackman Is Your Reminder to Get Off the Couch

SwimwearShirtless Hugh Jackman Is Your Reminder to Get Off the Couch


The other, less-common, version of dad bod.

Here's a picture of Hugh Jackman out today on Australia's Bondi Beach in his swimsuit. Jackman is a 47-year-old and a father of two and he's in way better shape than you, probably. The X-Men star has been known for his physique for a while now—he's Wolverine for God's sake—but it's worth taking the time to revisit this middle aged man's fitness successes, if only to motivate you in your quest to reach your own beach body goals.

You know what Hugh Jackman was doing right before he strolled out onto the sand? Working out. You know what he'll be doing tomorrow? Working out again. Even when he's not working out or playing a superhuman muscle machine, he's probably rehearsing new dance moves or saving his children from the ocean's rip tide (true story). Basically Hugh Jackman doesn't stand still. He isn't making excuses while ordering a second round of supreme nachos. The man is active.

On the brighter side, while you may never achieve Jackman levels of swole, you can definitely find yourself a better pair of swim trunks. We'd suggest a pair that aren't so baggy and that feature a more flattering color block design. Jackman's chevron trunks kind of make him look like he's wearing a diaper, that or like The Rock's Baywatch bathing suit as if he's trying to call attention to his crotch. Neither possibility is very stylish. Go for solid trunks instead.
