He also discussed one piece of gossip that has particularly annoyed him and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness: the rumors about his sexuality.

“Just recently, it bugs her,” the Oscar nominee told THR. Jackman explains that Furness reads the Internet much more than he does and she finds rumors that he is gay annoying. “She goes: 'It's big. It's everywhere!’”

THR also spoke with Lauren Shuler Donner, who produced X-Men. “I have seen him with Deborra since the beginning of their trip to Hollywood, and I've been on five movie sets with him and have never seen him stray, have never seen him eye anyone,” she said. “I met him when he did Oklahoma!... He was genuine, hugely talented. He was in love with his wife that day and still is.”

Extra reports that Jackman and Furness have been married 13 years. They met while filming Correlli. Furness is 16 years older.

“She was very beautiful,” Jackman said about meeting his wife. “She was unbelievably fun -- this energy, this spirit -- irrepressible. And she had a confidence in herself. I had a massive crush on her instantly.”

Jackman was nominated for an Oscar for Les Miserables and will reprise his role as Wolverine in The Wolverine, which will be out in July. his interview with THR is in the magazine’s latest issue.
