Hugh Jackman (Ian Gavan/Getty Images Europe)
has been in the headlines for months now, thanks to his powerful performance in Les Miserables
. So, he's been giving a lot of interviews. And he keeps having to talk about those pesky gay rumors.
The Best Actor Oscar nominee recently dispelled the claims to the Hollywood Reporter. When asked if the gay buzz gets to his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness
, Jackman said: "Just recently, it bugs her. She goes: 'It's big. It's everywhere!’"
Jackman’s pal Lauren Shuler Donner, X-Men
producer, also vouches for Jackman. "I have seen him with Deborra since the beginning of their trip to Hollywood, and I've been on five movie sets with him and have never seen him stray, have never seen him eye anyone,” she told the publication. “I met him when he did ‘Oklahoma! ‘[at London's Royal National Theatre in 1999]. He was genuine, hugely talented. He was in love with his wife that day and still is."
The pair have been together for years and years, after meeting on the set of Aussie TV show Corelli
. “When I met Deb, it was 10 times better than my single life,” Jackman said. “She was very beautiful. She was unbelievably fun – this energy, this spirit – irrepressible. And she had a confidence in herself. I had a massive crush on her instantly. She was sort of the opposite of me. I was very 'Even Steven,' and she was thrilling to me. I was always really attracted to that -- though at one point, as it was getting really serious, it terrified me."
