Hugh Jackman knew theatregoers were questionning his sexuality when he starred as a gay pop icon on the Broadway stage, because his wife regularly overheard women discussing him. Jackman, who is married to actress Deborra-lee Furness, starred as Peter Allen in the New York production of THE BOY FROM OZ before finding fame as a Hollywood star. But the main concern of many female fans was whether or not Jackson was gay. He says, "My wife saw the show about 40 times and she'd laugh every time she went to the washroom in the interval. All she'd hear was, 'Is he or isn't he one?' Then someone else would say, 'Oh, that doesn't mean anything!' We had a good laugh about it. "I didn't get any awkward propositions from men, but I was already used to the gay scene, having been brought up in Sydney."
