Hugh Jackman talking about his wife will make you ugly-cry

1 min read

We all need to take note.

If you didn’t know how in love Hugh Jackman is with his wife, then you must be living under a rock.

We have no doubt Jackman has gone to a mountain top to yell out how much he loves Deborra-Lee.

The actor opened up about his 21-year marriage to wife Deborra-Lee Furness during the latest edition of The Jess Cagle Interview on People TV, saying one of the reasons he loves their relationship so much is because they formed their bond before the Wolverine star became famous.

“One of the great pieces of fortune in my career, it started late, but that Deb and I were already set together, a team, madly in love, like literally before it all happened. 

“We can kind of see all the ups and downs for what they are. Our priority is our family, and we’re there for each other no matter what.”

The Greatest Showman actor, 49, says he actively reminds himself that he wouldn’t be where he is today without his wife. 

Last night, on the way to the @greatestshowman world premiere, with my love. #DEB

He refers Furness, 62, as his “rock,” Jackman says he always makes his wife a priority — no matter what the occasion may be.

“Even at the Oscars, I walk out, I put my hand on my heart and I always look to Deb in the audience.

“Straight afterwards, I will not see anybody in my dressing room until Deb’s been in. 

“Because that is my foundation, that is the rock, that is the foundation of our family, and therefore my life.”

The couple met on the set of the Australian drama Correlli in 1995 and have two kids together, Oscar, 17, and Ava, 12.
