Hugh Jackman’s wife of 17 years doesn’t like seeing all the gay rumors running across the internet about her husband. While Jackman doesn’t seem to care about the rumors, he did say that it “bugs her.”
The latest issue of “The Hollywood Reporter” reveals that Jackman’s wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, 57, isn’t happy with all the chatter and questions surrounding Hugh’s sexuality. Jackman stated, “Just recently, it bugs her.”
Jackman, 44 explained that his wife spend way more time on the internet than he does.
Jackman said, “She goes: ‘It’s big. It’s everywhere!’” Furnes is 13 years older than Jackman and they married in 1996.
In the issue, Jackman spoke about when he fell in love with his wife. “I was single when I met her and she was single.”
“I was happy being single. I was out of a difficult relationship I’d had through drama school, and it was tumultuous and hard.”
“I’d been living off 120 bucks a week as a student until I was 26. Then, when I met Deb, it was 10 times better than my single life.”
“She was very beautiful. She was unbelievably fun, this energy, this spirit, irrepressible. And she has a confidence in herself.”
“I had a massive crush on her instantly. She was sort of the opposite of me. I was very ‘Even Steven’ and she was thrilling to me.”
“I was always really attracted to that, though at one point, as it was getting really serious, it terrified me.”
Hugh Jackman’s X-Men producer, Lauren Shuler Donner also spoke with the magazine about the love Jackman has for his wife. “I have seen him with Deborra since the beginning of their trip to Hollywood.”
“And I’ve been on five movie sets with him and have never seen him stray, have never seen him eye anyone. I met him when he did ‘Oklahoma!’ at London’s Royal National Theatre in 1996.”
“He was genuine, hugely talented. He was in love with his wife that day and still is.”
