This breaks our hearts.

Hugh Jackman, also known as the most charmingly friendly and handsome guy in Hollywood, has been dealt a raw deal — his father is battling Alzheimer's Disease.

The good news is that Hugh says his father is happier than ever - and was proud of the time he got to spend with him during filming for new movie The Wolverine in his native Sydney, Australia last year.

Here's what he said:

"My dad is fairly well into Alzheimer’s now. His short-term memory is pretty much gone. He still recognizes me and can talk about the past, and weirdly, he’s as happy as I’ve ever known him, which is wonderful. One of the joys of doing The Wolverine was being in Sydney and spending time with him."

We're sorry this is happening, Hugh, but we're glad that you're finding the light in it.

Give our best to your dad!
