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 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.
