Hugh Jackman regrets tweeting weightlifting photo

Tweet in haste, repent in leisure. That's the lesson Hugh Jackman appears to have learned since sending out a photo in July of himself weightlifting 460 pounds while wearing bright, distinctive toe shoes. 

"I'm a little embarrassed about that," he told Access Hollywood Tuesday. "That was a moment ... (of) just showing off, completely showing off.... I'm about to turn 45, I will never do this again and I want to document it."

But give him credit: Jackman has not tried to scrub the photo from history; it's still up there as part of his Twitter feed at @RealHughJackman.

And TODAY Entertainment readers liked it, offering comments at the time like, "Nicely done, Hugh" and, "You look MAHVELOUS!"

So let's enjoy it once more, for old time's sake:
