Hugh Jackman may play one of the X-Men, but he's an A+ man in our
Ch-ch-check out the above photo of Hugh looking adorbz on the cover Good Housekeeping! It's clear to see that this Wolverine is domesticated!
In the accompanying interview, Hugh just gushed about his wife Deborrah! Here's what he had to say:
“From day one, we were best mates. We just clicked. We were giggling and laughing—we just connected…Deb is the last one to bed and the first one up in the morning. You know those dolls that, when you lie them down, their eyes close? And as soon as they’re vertical, their eyes open? That’s Deb. It’s almost annoying. She has two speeds: Stop and Go. She is always, ‘Let’s do this, let’s do that.’ And she is very funny, very quick.”
On romance, Hugh said the secret to success is the element of surprise. Who knew Hugh was so very, very sneaky?! He went on to tell a story about a recent romantic ambush he laid out when he surprised his wife by getting off early than expected from onset:
"I pretended I was still on the set. I called Deb and said, 'I'll be back late tonight.' And she got such a shock. I'd made reservations at our favorite lunch place. It was three hours before the kids finished school, and it was awesome because it was unplanned."
Speaking of being on sets, the grueling schedule of production often drives couples apart/sleep with their director (cough, KStew, cough).
However, Hugh has made it clear that with his wife, there's no
claws cause for concern. He and Deborrah have established a rule to never be away from each other from two weeks. He talked about her reasoning:
"She said, 'It's not that I think you're going to go off with a costar, or vice versa. But people get used to living apart. You get used to handling a problem yourself.'"
Aw, clearly they'd Les Miss each other too much to spend anymore time apart!
Hugh then went on to comment on the continuing rumors that he's gay, saying this:
“I don’t really pay attention. If someone’s going to spend their time saying, ‘You’re really not 6′ 2″; you’re 5′ 10″,’ I’ll tell them once, ‘I am 6′ 2″.’ Then, whatever you want to believe, it’s up to you. Am I going to waste energy going, ‘I’m so mad that this person says I’m 5′ 10″?’ We really only get mad when there’s an element of truth, right?”
Well said Hugh! Who cares if you're gay or you're straight when you're JEAN VALJEAN?!
