ABC News reports that Jackman’s X-Men producer, Lauren Shuler Donner, also denied the gay rumors, saying:

Hugh Jackman also spoke about meeting his wife on the set of Correlli, a prison-set television series. He recalled:

“She was very beautiful. She was unbelievably fun — this energy, this spirit — irrepressible. And she had a confidence in herself. I had a massive crush on her instantly.”

Along with denying gay rumors, Hugh Jackman also opened up about previous roles that could have been his over the years, notes E! Online. He admitted that he was offered Richard Gere’s Oscar-nominated role in the movie Chicago. He also dropped out of playing the lead role in Drive.

He also denied himself a role as James Bond, because he didn’t want to be stereotyped as an action movie actor, because of his previous role as Wolverine. He explained, “I thought it would box me in too much. My natural instinct is to keep as many doors open as possible.”

    In time wifey will accept Hugh's attraction to men. If not Hugh can get a divorce and find a hubby to fulfill him in ways wifey can't.

    The Kiwis from New Zealand & the Aussies from Australasia tend to have boisterous and extremely friendly personalities, which are often mistaken for being Gay. Every male Aussie & Kiwi actor to come from those countries has been rumored to be Gay. Likewise, any male actor from any country with similar characteristics is likewise rumored to be Gay. Such characteristics are simply stereotypical of many Gay man, they are not necessarily typical of all Gay men. Likewise, being the rugged, rough, tough, outdoors, Mr Fix it, automotive & sports enthusiast, is simply stereotypical of many strait men, it isn't typical of all strait men. Some men who are strait do share the traits stereotyped with being Gay, & some Gay men share the traits stereotyped with being strait. This is why we have Gay men who play professional sports, & strait men who have chosen to stay home & take care of the kids, while the wife works. Humans are dynamic & unique beings, its sad that people can't except the diversity we find within our own species, and we think we can except the diversity of intelligent alien life that might exist in the universe, yeah right.

    There is no proof of any of this. I feel so terrible for them and hope they know
    not all of us have the same opinion. I really hope Deb can get past this and be strong. I would hate to think that all this bull dust could affect their lovely relationship.. It is so so terribly hard to find true love.
