Hugh Jackman - Hugh Jackman: 'My Wife Turned Down Mick Jagger For Me'

Hugh Jackman knew his wife was a keeper after she turned down an invitation to party with Sir Mick Jagger to have dinner with the actor.

The X-Men star asked his future wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, over to a group dinner at his home in 1996 while they were starring in Australian Tv show Correlli together.

During the meal, the actress received a call from the Rolling Stones rocker urging her to leave.

Jackman explains, "I invited her and about 20 people over and during the dinner she had her cell phone on the table... and we're in Melbourne, my house, and we're all watching her have this conversation and she goes, 'Mick Jagger is outside your house, in a limo, with a friend of mine and he says, 'I want you to come out and party.''

"And I'm a huge Rolling Stones fan, so I'm like, 'Go, go, get out now', right? The idea that he would be outside my house... And she said, 'You can tell Mick Jagger, I'm having dinner with Hugh Jackman.' I knew she was a keeper right there."

The couple wed later that year, in April, 1996.
