Hugh Jackman - Hugh Jackman frustrated by gay rumours

Hugh Jackman gets frustrated by gay rumours about him.

The 'Les Miserables' actor is sick of being constantly questioned about his sexuality, especially because it upsets his wife Deborra-Lee Furness.

Speaking in a joint interview with Deborra-Lee, 57, on CBS' '60 Minutes', he said: ''If I was [homosexual], I would be. I don't think - to me, it's not the most interesting thing about a person anyway, but I do get frustrated for Deb, because I see Deb go, 'Ah, this is crazy.'

''On some level it's a compliment, you know, because it only happens when you've got to a certain point in your career.''

Deborra-Lee - who has been married to Hugh, 44, for 17 years and has adoptive children Oscar, 13, and Ava, seven, with him - angrily added the rumours are extremely ''offensive'' to their family.

Hugh has also spoken out about his constant battle with inner aggression, claiming that playing Wolverine in the 'X-Men' films and spin-off movies is a form of ''therapy'' for him to channel his anger.

He told the new edition of Men's Health magazine: ''Nine out of 10 characteristics of Wolverine I don't share, but aggression is a primal thing and needs to be exercised in some way.

''When I was younger I was very explosive. I used to let most of it out playing rugby. I'm not as explosive now but in a sense it's still there.

''It's in our DNA ... far better to have it in a controlled violent environment. So in a way playing Wolverine is good therapy.''
