Hugh Jackman Loses To Van Gogh Starry Night Jigsaw Puzzle

People are puzzled by Hugh Jackman’s stay home project and we love him more for it! Our beloved Aussie went completely Wolverine on this insane jigsaw puzzle to his millions of followers on Instagram Live. His reaction is totally relatable...

It is said that Van Gogh ate yellow paint thinking it would make his insides bright and happy. Well, we’ve got a more healthier alternative - jigsaw puzzles. And not just any jigsaw puzzles either; rather, ones endorsed by The Greatest Showman Hugh Jackman himself.  

Hugh Jackman attempts to solve his 1000-piece Vincent Van Gogh The Starry Night Jigsaw Puzzle.

Even macho Wolverine likes to get down and jiggy with Van Gogh’s The Starry Night.

We’ve all felt like our lives have been missing a piece since being stuck indoors most of 2020. This has pushed us to get more creative than ever before with how we stay entertained. And the new 1,000-piece Van Gogh puzzle challenge does exactly that. The best thing - it doesn’t even require a WiFi connection (unlike those lonely Saturday nights in watching and rewatching The Greatest Showman for the umpteenth time)!

So let’s band together with The Wolverine and embark on this new challenge to find other ways to keep ourselves busy during lockdown. It’s Never Enough when it comes to completing Vincent Van Gogh’s timeless The Starry Night jigsaw puzzle.

Jigsaw puzzles are also a great way to de-stress - something we’re all in desperate need of in this age of digital overload. Think about it: if you’re doing a puzzle, you become so engrossed in the task at hand that it disengages you completely from the stresses and interruptions of everyday life. And with a schedule as hectic as Jackman’s, you can see why he loves doing puzzles.

In fact, studies have shown consistent puzzling to demonstrate similar effects on the brain as mindfulness and meditation. They increase our attention, patience (Lord knows we could all use more of that), and can even help stave off dementia! Who knew doing jigsaw puzzles could give you mutant Professor X brain powers?

In any case, we could all do with a bit less stress, especially in these times. So what are you waiting for? Join with us in completing the 1000-piece Van Gogh jigsaw puzzle challenge. After all, puzzling times call for puzzling measures…



So, if you’re not too sure how to spend all this extra time in isolation, detached from friends and family...take a leaf (or claw) out of Wolverine’s book! We assure you, it’s never enough. 

Hugh Jackman's favourite jigsaw puzzle is Vincent Van Gogh's The Starry Night.

It took Wolverine four months to complete this beast. Think you can do it faster? Click here to shop the 1,000-piece Vincent Van Gogh Starry Night Jigsaw Puzzle.

And if you think this puzzle is beautiful, complete the set! These other Van Gogh puzzles are just as gorgeous, just as entertaining, and just as Instagram-worthy!
