Hugh Jackman has proved he's dedicated to his job after revealing he burst his stitches after having a cancerous mole removed, whilst singing in The Greatest Showman.
The Aussie actor had his fifth skin cancer scare in early 2016 which involved a suspicious mole being sliced away from his nose, whilst in the midst of preparing for the highly anticipated Hollywood flick.
Despite being advised not to sing by his doctor, Hugh proved he really is a great showman and continued on, resulting in his stitches bursting open.
In a video shared to his social media accounts ahead of the Sydney premiere tonight, Hugh explains that before to get the movie the green light a meeting of all the execs, producers and the director needed to happen.
It took eight months for this meeting in New York to take place, but the day before Hugh had emergency surgery to remove a suspicious mole.
"I'd just had a skin cancer cut out of my nose, all was fine," the Wolverine star said. "But I had 80 stitches in my nose and my doctor said, 'you're not allowed to sing.'"
Despite the stern medical advice, Hugh, 49, realised that not singing wasn't an option if he wanted the musical to proceed.
The five minute video then cuts to the previously unseen rehearsals, where the Golden Globe winner starts belting out his tune until his face literally bleeds.
"Sorry (not sorry) to my surgeon," he added on Instagram. "He told me not to sing. Did it anyway. And after... I ran back to get restitched. Worth it!!!"
The movie about a legendary performer P. T. Barnum, who is credited with inventing the circus, also stars hunky Zac Efron and Michelle Williams.
Fans have taken to social media to praise the Sydney native and admire his work ethics.
