Labor Day has officially arrived, and with it the need to rid ourselves of our sartorial summer flings — those white sundresses, jorts, and wedges will have to wait until next year. It’s time for sweater-weather, y’all.
Of course, Hugh Jackman also embraced an aesthetic summer change this year, after shaving his head and growing a pirate beard in June. (It was for his role as the pirate Blackbeard in the upcoming “Pan,” a reimagining of “Peter Pan” from the pirate’s perspective, but still.)
It was fun while it lasted, but as the sun began to set on the Summer of 2014 on Monday (September 1), so too did it set on Wolverine’s glorious beard. Lucky for us, he documented the occasion on Instagram.
“Going ….,” he captioned on the first video, which features the Beard’s treacherous final moments:
“Gone….,” he wrote on the second. (Sniff.)
RIP, Summer of 2014. RIP, Hugh Jackman’s glorious Summer of 2014 facial hair.
“Pan” will hit theaters on July 17, 2015. In the meantime, to relive better days, check out Jackman’s weird and wondrous Instagram.
