Hugh Jackman’s Wife Deborra-Lee Furness Is Still Upset That People Think Her Husband Is Gay
If you know anything about Hollywood, then you know there are a lot of people who believe Hugh Jackman is secretly gay. They think this because he’s not your typical macho man. He likes musicals, he’s super nice, he’s well-groomed, and he’s been married to the same woman for over 20 years.
And this woman is 13-years older than him. She’s also not your typical beauty star. Not that she’s ugly. It’s just, she looks like your average 64-year-old woman, which is unheard of in Hollywood.
Yeah, Jackman is 51-years-old, but he’s got the body of a 30-year-old. If he wanted to, he could be out there with Dennis Quaid, dating and f**king college students.
So people just assume he must be gay. He must be using Furness to keep his secret alive. During a recent episode of Anh’s Brush With Fame, Furness said that while they’re used to the rumors by now, they are still a bit annoying to deal with.
“It’s just wrong. It’s like someone saying to Elton John, ‘He’s straight.’ I’m sure he’d be pissed,” she said. Furness says the truth is, she and Jackman had an instant connection when they met over two decades ago.
We just had this amazing connection. And I feel blessed that I experienced, that I feel like I met my soulmate, whatever that is. When you find a partner in crime that you share and you grow together—and life is tough as we know it, it’s not all good—and when you have someone there that is so supportive…you can really stand buck naked. You have to. When you’ve got kids and life and whatever, you stand there buck naked, authentic, warts and all, this is who it is, and you’re loved, there’s nothing better.
And for what it’s worth, Jackman does seem completely in love with Furness. If he’s been hiding a secret for the past 20 years, he’s doing a good job of it. I think what’s happening here is that people just can’t accept that Jackman is a normal dude.
He hasn’t been sucked in by Hollywood. I mean, ask anyone who has worked with him, and they’ll say he’s the nicest dude ever. That’s who he is. I’m sure he’s a wonderful husband as well.
By the way, Furness doesn’t appreciate those “he’s with her?!?” or “wow, she’s so lucky!” comments.
Lucky? Like I won a chook raffle. People don’t realize that it’s actually rude to say that. But yeah…[that’s]because he’s the stud muffin. But that’s show biz and Hollywood and the brand of Hugh Jackman.
