Here's a list of things Hugh Jackman's wife, Deborra Lee Furness, is cool with him doing:

  1. Getting naked on screen

  2. Almost chopping off 'little Hugh' while filming X-Men

  3. Having this mullet in Chappie

Here is a list of thing's Hugh Jackman's wife is NOT cool with him doing:

  1. Working with Angelina Jolie.

That's it.


Yep, it appears all singing, all dancing, all-facial-haired Hugh Jackman could have a thing for Angelina Jolie, after his wife admitted that she's flat out banned him from working with the 40-year-old Tomb Raider star.

Speaking to the Today Show, Deborra Lee Furness said: "I've told his agent he's not allowed to work with Angelina [Jolie].

"I'm sure she's very nice and I love what she's doing - shining a light on awareness for adoption..."

She paused and added "Just kidding", while Hugh, who was sitting next to her, frowned and cringed a little bit.


The pair have managed to forge one of the most successful Hollywood relationships ever, after meeting on the set of Correlli way back in 1995.

They've now been together for a whopping nineteen years and have two adopted children, Oscar, 14, and Ava, nine.

Deborra went on to say: "It just goes to show, if you get it right, if you pick the right partner then you traverse all those travails and challenges."

Hugh added: "Deb had a rule: never be apart for more than two weeks."

He also admitted that he said yes to everything early on during their relationship. Although maybe not "everything" as it turns out; Deborra told him to turn down his famous role as Wolverine when he was first offered the job, as she thought it was "ridiculous". Oh well, we can't be right every time, Deb.
