Hugh Jackman‘s had an ‘instant connection’ with wife. The popular Australian actor known for roles such as in Les Miserables and Kate & Leopold admits his wife Deborra Lee Furness hit off immediately when they first met, saying she is his best friend.
Jackman has been married to Furness, who is the mother of their two children now for seventeen years. Together they are parents to thirteen year old Oscar and seventeen year old Ava. He told the August issue of Good Housekeeping magazine:
”From day one, we were best mates. We just clicked. We were giggling and laughing – we just connected.
”The bedrock of any relationship is to communicate, and Deb and I have always done that, discussing whatever’s going on, good or bad.
”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.”
Also Jackman does try to keep the romance between them alive. He explained:
”If I bring Deb flowers every Tuesday, yeah, it’s nice, but is it romantic? One time when I got off early from work in Montreal, I pretended I was still on set. I called Deb and said, ‘I’ll be back late tonight.’ [Then I surprised her] and she got such a shock. I’d made reservations at the lunch place we love. It was three hours before the kids finished school, and it was awesome because it was unplanned.”
