Jackman shaves his Pan beard off

Hugh Jackman has said goodbye to his full beard.

The X-Men star grew the extra facial hair, while shaving off the locks on his head, to play pirate villain Blackbeard in Pan.

He posted the video on Instagram, captioned: "Going ..." before a barber switches on the shaver and does the job.

The 45-year-old actor later uploaded a new video of himself beard-less, captioned: "Gone...."

The day before, the Australian actor shared a photo of himself holding a drink, complete with bald head, bushy moustache and beard, with the accompanying caption: "Cheers."

Hugh's decision to take the chop came after shooting on the Peter Pan origins story wrapped.

"That's a wrap for Blackbeard on #PAN. Thank you to the phenomenal cast & crew! You are all tops. @wbpictures @that'sawrap," he tweeted on August 27.

The Oscar-nominated heartthrob started growing the beard in February, and chopped off his hair in June, shortly before filming began.

Rooney Mara plays Tiger Lily, with Levi Miller as the young Peter Pan. Amanda Seyfried has been cast as Mary in Pan, which is being directed by English filmmaker Joe Wright. It will be released in 2015.

Hugh previously said: "This is the prequel to Peter Pan. This is the origin story so it is very smart, there's a lot of heart to it and of course, you're in Neverland. I play the villain Blackbeard, who is charming and who loves to hear the sound of his own voice. I'm really enjoying it."
