Deborra-Lee Furness addresses rumours about husband Hugh Jackman’s sexuality

Deborra-Lee Furness, wife of Hugh Jackman, has called out the tabloids for rumours around her husband’s sexuality.

Speaking on the Australian TV show Anh’s Brush With Fame, 64-year-old Furness said she tends to ignore the “mean-spirited” tabloids that have speculated that her husband was gay.

“I hope people realise it’s all made up,’ she said.

“He’s been gay so many years,” she joked. “I was gay, too. You know when I did Shame? I was gay. They were shocked when I got married.”

When asked whether she found the constant tabloid rumours annoying, the actress said, “It’s just wrong. It’s like someone saying to Elton John, ‘He’s straight.’ I’m sure he’d be pissed.”

The couple, who met on the set of 1995 TV show Correlli have been married since 1996.

Furness said they felt an “instant connection” when they first met, adding that she knew Jackman was the one after two weeks of dating.

“We just had this amazing connection,” she said. “And I feel blessed that I experienced, that I feel like I met my soulmate, whatever that is.”

After struggling with fertility, the couple adopted two children, Oscar (now age 20) and Ava (15).

As to the secret to their long marriage, Furness said Jackman has always been “partner in crime” who has supported her through life’s ups and downs.

“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,” she said.
