Hugh Jackman's wife has joked his body looks photoshopped.

The 44-year-old actor worked hard to get into shape for 'The Wolverine' and his spouse Deborra-lee Furness, admitted even she is in awe of his hunky body.

Speaking on 'Oprah's Next Chapter', she said: ''He looks like he's photoshopped in the flesh! I say, 'it's ridiculous. You look photoshopped'.

''No one is more disciplined, though, he works really hard at it and it is no fun for the family. Because he...we can never go out to eat. It's like he's always having another cow or a chicken or broccoli.''

Hugh recently joked that Deborra - who he has been married to for 17 years - isn't a fan of his toned physique and would prefer him to be fat so she looks great.

He quipped: ''She doesn't approve. I get a hard time for it. Deb tells me, 'Your job, as my husband, is to be fat and chubby, so that I look great.' ''

Hugh also insisted the key to their happy marriage is knowing they have committed to the ''right person'' and a willingness to make sacrifices.

He said: ''Eight per cent of a marriage is choosing the right person and with Deb I just knew. Obviously there has to be a great attraction and love.

''In any marriage, there must be some sacrifices. No marriage survives if both people are selfish.''
