Hugh Jackman Addresses Gay Rumors in Good Housekeeping
Posted on July 12, 2013
Hugh Jackman covers the August 2013 issue of Good Housekeeping. In the interview, Jackman talks about talks about his wife and best mate, Deborra-Lee Furness. Jackman also talks about lessons he learned as a child and addressed rumors that he is gay.
On His Wife, Deborra-Lee Furness: "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 The Rumors of Him Being Gay: "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?"
On Family Chores: "From when I was very young, I had chores every day. I had to cook dinner, or no one ate."
