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."
