We will give you a few clues as to who this snarling teen is, but we reckon you still won’t be able to guess.

The star was 17 at the time this was taken, and the now-54 year old here apose that would actually later mimic.

He’s an A-lister alright, and an Australian one. He’s also chummy with Marvel superstar Ryan Reynolds since they struck up a friendship back in 2009 over a little film called X-Men Origins.

The mystery teen in the picture has actually just Deborra-Lee Furness after 27 years of marriage.

That’s right. It’s Hugh Jackman, can you believe it.

The Wolverine star looks nothing like his younger self in this throwback snap he posted on social media yesterday, alongside the caption: ‘I was maybe 17. I was the assistant (to the assistant) of the footy team.’

Around this time, Hugh would have been at all-boys Knox Grammar School on Sydney’s Upper North Shore, where he got his first taste of the spotlight when he starred in a production of My Fair Lady.

He then spent a gap year teaching physical education at expensive English boarding institution, Uppingham School, before heading back to Sydney for his BA in Communications. In his final year, Hugh took a drama course for extra credits and seemingly never looked back.

The star has been getting out and about since news of his divorce broke in September.

He was recently spotted atspending the day with best friend and Deadpool 3 director Shawn Levy, as well as 

The Logan star also recently , cooking and delivering ‘medically tailored meals’ for people with ‘chronic or serious illness’.
