Hugh Jackman is celebrating his birthday today! The versatile and Golden Globe-winning actor is turning 49, and we're sure he's ringing in the special day with a bit of Jackman-esque whimsy.

We've been keeping up with the Australian actor's Instagram feed from the beginning, and it's been a constant flow of Jackman's dapperness mixed in with his all-around silly personality. It's enough to make anyone fall in love with the actor over and over again.

Celebrate Jackman's special day by reminding yourself why he's among the most lovable actors in Hollywood (it's not just for his Wolverine abs). To start, here are 23 perfect examples.
