Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-lee Furness have hit back at the “offensive” rumours that he is gay.
Talking to 60 Minutes, the pair revealed they found the constant questions about Hugh’s sexuality “frustrating”.
“If I was [gay], I would be,” Hugh said.
“It's to me not the most interesting thing about a person anyway, but I do get frustrated for Deb, because I see Deb go, ‘Ah, this is crazy.’”
Deb, who has been married to Hugh for 17 years, said the rumours simply weren’t true.
“It is just wrong, it's like, it's a lie,” she said.
“It's just offensive. If he was gay, fine, he would say he’s gay. It has gotten so out of whack … it's stupid, yeah, it's annoying, because it's not true.”
Hugh says the rumours began to intensify following his performance as Peter Allen in The Boy From Oz on Broadway a decade ago.
Hugh first discussed his frustration about the rumours with The Hollywood Reporter in February, confessing that the attention bugged his wife.
