The actor wore the robe tied at the waist and slung over a conventional shirt and trousers. 

Hugh seemed to be in good spirits for his day on set, smiling and sharing a joke with two crew members as he enjoyed his lunch break.   

The action star delighted fans with a funny Instagram video, posted on Wednesday, which saw him tease his friend Ryan Reynolds, 43.

Hugh won the 'sexiest man' accolade back in 2008 and congratulated this year's recipient, musician John Legend, 40, on the People magazine honour.

He made it clear to his fans he was a previous winner while also issuing a 'warning' about Reynolds. 

The brief video featured Hugh and Ryan walking on a soundstage, when Hugh picked up an issue and handed it to Reynolds, who said: 'Oh, it's your People's Sexiest Man Alive issue.'

When he asked Ryan if he's seen it, the star replied: 'I have an issue somewhere, I have a few of yours. Usually I cut the eyes out or the mouth, but that's just me.'

Reynolds was referring to his hit movie Deadpool, where his character uses the photo from Jackman's 2008 People's Sexiest Man Alive issue as a mask.

Hugh's new film, Reminiscence, is a screenplay written by co-creator and executive producer of Westworld, Lisa Joy.

It tells the story of a scientist who discovers a way to revisit the past, and using new technology, searches for his lost love.

Hugh stars as Nick Bannister, a reclusive man living in futuristic Miami, who is able to offer people the chance to relive their past memories.

The film also stars Thandie Newton, 47, Daniel Wu, 45, and Rebecca Ferguson, 36, who previously worked alongside Hugh in The Greatest Showman.

In his personal life, Hugh is loved-up with his wife of 23 years Deborra-Lee Furness, 63, they have two children together - Oscar, 19, and Ava, 14, who they adopted.
