LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Hugh Jackman’s wife, actress Deborra-Lee Furness, hinted that her husband’s many looks – from Wolverine to Broadway — have added spice to their romance.
“I like him clean-shaven. But I like him all ways: chubby, muscley, skinny. I’m always having affairs,” she told Town&Country’s October 2013 issue, which features the Australian actor on its new cover.
Hugh has said before how smitten he was with Deborra-Lee when he first met her (she was the star of the show they met on in Australia), but as they started dating, he tried to stop himself from proposing too soon.
“I decided, I won’t ask her to marry me for six months. Then after four months I thought, ‘That’s the most ridiculous rule,’” he told the mag.
The pair has been married for nearly two decades.
“And it gets better every year,” Deborra-Lee said. “And here we are, 18 years. Is it 18?”
