He wrote: “When people tell you ‘you don’t look 50’ part of you believes it… until you see yourself sleeping.”

The star, whose film The Greatest Showman this year defied critics to become a surprise hit, turned 50 on October 12.

Earlier this year, Jackman told WHO magazine that he hoped to celebrate his birthday with a small party.

He said: “I’d probably like a dinner party for 10. (My wife and I) are going to meet somewhere in the middle.

“We’ll do something and it’s going to be fun but no speeches. No speeches.”
