Hugh Jackman Deborra-lee Furness Married For 15 Years

Hugh Jackman Deborra-lee Furness Married For 15 Years, Hollywood hunk Hugh Jackman thrills his wife by dressing up in the bedroom – as a stockbroker.
Actress Deborah-Lee Furness, 56, was so determined not to end up with a fellow actor she started fantasizing about someone sensible in finance.
And even after breaking her vow and marrying Wolverine star Jackman 16-years ago she says her fantasy remains – and Hugh helps live it out.
‘I was always saying I’d marry somebody sensible, like a stockbroker. So he dresses up for that fantasy for me occasionally,’ she cackled in an interview with Page Six Magazine.
The couple met in 1991 on the set of the Aussie TV show Correlli where Furness played a prison psychologist and Jackman an inmate she counselled.
It wasn’t love at first sight, she says, but there was ‘an instant rapport, a recognition’.
However her New Year’s resolutions that year included no more dating actors – and no more men under 30.
‘Famous last words!’ she laughs of ending up with Jackman, an actor who was only 26 at the time.
Jackman, however, was far more certain right from the start that he had found his life partner.
‘It was early on for me when I knew she was the one – I want to say two weeks into dating,’ he says.
‘But I decided to wait six months before asking Deb to marry me. After about four months I realized six months was a stupid rule, so I asked her.
‘I never knew anything with as much surety as knowing Deb was the one.’
Furness insists the Hollywood star is just a regular guy at home – and she forgets his fame.
‘It’s almost like another persona – “the Movie Star”,’ she says.
‘Mind you, I do think he’s the sexiest man alive, and I’d hope every woman would think her husband was.’
She even finds the constant presence of paparazzi an easy part of every day life, even for their children.
‘I know them like the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker,’ Furness says nonchalantly. ‘They’re actually very nice guys. I say to the kids, “There’s the trees, there’s the paparazzi.’ It’s just part of their world.”
However, that’s not always the case with crazed fans.
‘I’ve been almost pummeled as people try to get to him,’ says Furness.
‘Literally, they will push you out of the way.’
To which she says she is tempted to say: ‘Hi, I’m chopped liver. How do you do?’
She also has a hard time with some of the press coverage making an issue of her looks.
‘I resent magazines that say they write for women and all they do is ridicule women. They’ve got a close-up of a star’s cellulite and it’s like, “Oh, happy day!”,’ she moans.
