Hugh Jackman's wife Deborra Lee-Furness says the couple's caught wind of the gossip questioning 43-year-old Jackman's sexuality, but they're not paying the rumors any mind.
"The line I heard was, 'Wolverine? Who would have thought?'" Furness tells Page Six Magazine. "Hugh and I don't pay much heed. It's kind of tragic that these people have nothing better to do than gossip about people they don't know."
It's not just Jackman they gossip about - rumormongers have also clucked at Furness's weight. But the Australian actress remains unfazed.
"Heaven forbid I have a human experience and carry a little weight," she tells the magazine, adding that her husband of 15 years "is much more mature than me, so we balance each other out....I was always saying I'd marry someone sensible, like a stockbroker. So he dresses up for that fantasy for me occasionally."
The truth is Deb Lee Furness is gay and it only matters as they live a life of lies as he is not gay, and why have a marriage of convenience in this day and age, why not have truth and honesty and real love...
I never heard any gay rumours about Hugh Jackman, and I don't believe them, but I can dream!
What is this, Datalounge? There are so many meowy-remarks, I'm thinking there's a hint of jealousy going on here. Attacking a woman's looks because you want her husband is uncool.
Any guy who does that much Rodgers & Hammerstein can't be entirely straight. My money is on him being bi.
NH - but I think Ms. Lee-Furness outkicked her coverage by a lot... glad to hear they're happily married, but I would've aimed higher Hugh!
Hugh Jackman gay? Can you be more ignorant?
Their kids are adopted, she is much older and unattractive, he's an actor who sings and dances on Broadway. Yup she's a beard for a gay man.
Tony Danza sings & dances is he gay ?, Donny Osmond ? Michael Jackson? Gene Kelly ? Hugh Jackman is an all around talent & I am glad to hear his wife "pays no heed" to such goofy people. !!! Tis the season .....
While I agree with you in general I have to say your examples are terrible.
He married his mother
You are so right! What a compelling argument you make! To continue your well-considered list of examples: Ricky Martin dances & is he gay? Lance Bass? George Michael? Darnit, Hugh Jackman is an all around talent & I am glad to hear his wife "pays no heed" to such goofy people. !!! ( And only a straight man would marry his mom. )
He would look good as the cop in Village People, if that group ever does a revival tour. -Art
Why do people always have nothing else 2 say but talk sht about folks they know nothing about them,Hugh Jackman got more money then yor ever going 2 see...
Is that his mom? Seriously.
She does not look 60. Nowhere close. She looks like a normal woman in her 40s.
Actually,look her up on Wikipedia...She's 56 years old!
It looks like he married his mom. That broad in the picture has to be pushing 60.
She's older than he is, and she is gorgeous. Sure as heck doesn't look like his mother. Clearly Hugh knows enough to see her beauty. Shame you can't.
They are a seriously classy family, working on causes that matter and make a difference without shouting it from the rooftops. More power to them.
She *was* pushing 60.... 2 years ago. Hugh, really?
G@y people are g@y.
um – you would care if you were his wife haha
It doesnt matter if he or anyone is gay or isnt. No one should care.
Absolutely love her she is a class act just like her husband. This is the nicest family I have ever met and any rumors about them should just be put in the trash with the people that spread them.
Honestly, It's ignorant to think that sonmeone who likes musicals, dresses well, and has talent is gay. Even if he was, I would still find him entertaining (loved the movie Australia).
Plus, he just seem likable!
Love this family!
Um, can I get a refund on the last 5 minutes of my life that I spent listening to this??? Please.....???
