Classic Quotes by Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness about their relationship:

"In my early twenties, I didn't have a regular girlfriend. I was single and really happy about it. And then when I was 26, I met Deb on "Correlli." She was my leading lady. It was jsut undeniable. I started planning to propose to her at about three months. We are happy. Deb and my kids have been the best things that have ever happened to me without a doubt." Hugh Jackman 11/2008
"The first thing I always do in a movie is go to dinner with my leading lady and my wife. When they meet Deb they like her more than me anyway. I remember working with Meg Ryan on "Kate & Leopold" and it was our wedding anniversary. Deb and I planned on going to the rainbow room but I had to work. So Meg took Deb out for our anniversary instead." Hugh Jackman 11/2008
"Hugh is sexy to me every day because he's always truly himself. If someone asks me what it's like to be married to the Sexiest Man Alive, I'll say, 'Damned interesting and a lot of fun!'" Deborra-Lee Furness
"It's easy with my wife. She loves the idea of me coming home in costume because it makes her feel like she's having an affair in a good way. When we met, I was cast as a prisoner with tattoos and she'd say, "Don't take your tattoos off tonight!" and I'd be like, "All right!" But what works best with her is the stockbroker look. She also says, "Do your sexy dance for me,"[an '80's-like, hip-swiveling number] and that works for me." Hugh Jackman
"I've known Nicole [Kidman] for a long time - she lived with me and Deb when she first cam to Hollywood. They are very close friends. While it's never particularly comfortable making out with someone in front of 70 people, it's not the toughest day at the office! When I saw the movie for the first time, my wife was next to me, and just after the very first kiss, Deb goes, 'That was great!' So if your wife gives you the thumbs up, you know you're on the right track." Hugh Jackman 12/15/2008
"I [have] learned that you have to let...[them] feel it's thier idea. As a parent, it's the greatest thing I've ever learned! Having kids has helped me learn about myself and my relationship to my parents. My wife often says, 'Oh, hello Chris' - that's my dad's name. The things coming out of my mouth sound exactly like my dad, which I swore would never happen. It's the most annoying thing - and it's so bizarre!" Hugh Jackman 12/15/2008
"Hugh's good with discipline, and I'm there to spoil them rotten." Deborra-Lee Furness 12/15/2008
"There are things coming out of my mouth that sound exactly like my dad, which I swore I'd never say!" Hugh Jackman
"She gets to have an affair every three months." Hugh Jackman
"It was 10 times better than any single life I could have conjured up for myself." Hugh Jackman
"I was in London and I woke up to a phone call about midnight. I was dumbstruck, My wife, Deb, was coming to bed, and I sad, 'Baby, you're about to get in bed with the host of the 81st Academy Awards!" and she started jumping up and down!" Hugh Jackman
"He's very good with the discipline." Deborra-Lee Furness 3/11/2009
"When two spirits come together and are meant to be together, it works." Deborra-Lee Furness 3/2009
"I love watching my children laugh, grow and evolve." Hugh Jackman
"Every person I've ever worked with has ended up liking Deb more than they like me. I'm a little behind in the wit department, and she's always, 'Come on, Hugh, keep up!'". Hugh Jackman
"My wife says the only thing handy about me is I'm close by." Hugh Jackman
