Hugh Jackman says he and wife Deborra-Lee Furness had an instant connection when they first met and she is his best friend.
Hugh Jackman's wife is his best friend.
The 'Wolverine' actor has been married to Deborra-lee Furness - the mother of his two children, Oscar, 13 and eight-year-old Ava - for 17 years and revealed there was an instant connection between them as soon as they met.
He told the August issue of Good Housekeeping magazine: ''From day one, we were best mates. We just clicked. We were giggling and laughing - we just connected.
''The bedrock of any relationship is to communicate, and Deb and I have always done that, discussing whatever's going on, good or bad.
''Deb is the last one to bed and the first one up in the morning. You know those dolls that, when you lie them down, their eyes close? And as soon as they're vertical, their eyes open? That's Deb. It's almost annoying. She has two speeds: Stop and Go. She is always, 'Let's do this, let's do that.' And she is very funny, very quick.''
Although they have been married for 17 years, Hugh still tries to keep the romance in their relationship alive.
He explained: ''If I bring Deb flowers every Tuesday, yeah, it's nice, but is it romantic? One time when I got off early from work in Montreal, I pretended I was still on set. I called Deb and said, 'I'll be back late tonight.' [Then I surprised her] and she got such a shock. I'd made reservations at the lunch place we love. It was three hours before the kids finished school, and it was awesome because it was unplanned.''
Hugh, 44, also revealed he is sick of speculation he is secretly gay and says he and his 57-year-old wife try not to pay attention to it.
He explained: ''I don't really pay attention. If someone's going to spend their time saying, 'You're really not 6-foot- 2, you're 5-foot-10, I'll tell them once, 'I am 6-foot-2.' Then, whatever you want to believe, it's up to you. Am I going to waste energy going, 'I'm so mad that this person says I'm 5-foot-10?' We really only get mad when there's an element of truth, right?''
