The international man of mystery is back.

Austin Powers star Mike Myers made a rare public appearance Saturday at the 49th American Film Institute’s Life Achievement Award Gala, Page Six reports.

The outing marked the first time the famous actor has attended an event in over a year.

The Shrek star, 60, was sporting a gray buzz cut, a far different look than his shaggy brown hair he kept throughout his Hollywood career.

He looked dapper in a tux for the lavish affair where Nicole Kidman was being honoured.

Video showed Myers stopping to take pictures with fans on his way into Dolby Theatre on Saturday night.

Myers wore a mask onstage before taking it off to reveal himself and making a speech at the gala.

The actor has been out of the spotlight for a few years now, with his last on-screen role in David O. Russell’s 2022 film, Amsterdam.

That same year, the Love Guru actor created and starred in the Netflix series The Pentaverate.

There were rumours he was working on a fourth instalment of his most famous franchise Austin Powers, but there have been no updates.

“I can neither confirm nor deny the existence or non-existence of such a project, should it exist or not exist. [That’s a] non-confirmed confirmation confirmation,” he said on The Jess Cagle Showin May 2022.

Myers shares his low profile life with wife Kelly Tisdale, 47, and their three children: Spike, 12, Sunday, 10, and Paulina, 8.

The actor met the artist back in 2006 and quietly tied the knot in 2010.

While doing press for Amsterdam, Myers told People his kids weren’t impressed with his Hollywood career.

“They’re remarkably unexcited about anything [I do],” he joked, “You know, which is great.”

While Myers flew solo on Saturday night, Kidman brought many family members to see her take the prestigious lifetime achievement award.

Along with her husband, Keith Urban, the Big Little Lies actress brought her teen daughters, Sunday and Faith.

They were also joined by Kidman’s sister, Antonia, and the actress’ niece Sybella Hawley.
