    Is that slim man in the gray vest his former assistant and now buisness partner or is that an employee at the club?

  • lizzie

    That slim boy in the gray vest is rumored to be/has been his lover as well as the aforementioned. There must be enough Hugh to go around cause everybody involved seems pretty happy.

    why should he dump the wife? the rumors down here in sydney australia are NOT THAT HUGH IS GAY BUT RATHER HE IS BI-SEXUAL.. He has always played both sides; so to speak . he is happy with his wife and with his “friend”. hugh has an active romantic relationship with both of these two people -the wife and the friend. it apparently works very well. hugh spends equal time with both deborra-lee and the friend. it’s all very adult; why break up something that is working.

  • Breepal

    You do realize that both of you used the word “rumor”, don’t you? Just saying.

  • Spicylily THAILAND

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY !! Hugh

  • Janeway

    WIFE = FUGLY LADY

    FRIEND = KINDA HOT BUT HE HAS ‘GAYFACE’ LOL

    xoxo

  • non

    Happy birthday Hugh, and best wishes for lots of happiness together with your beautiful family.

  • sammee

    Hugh and John Palermo were “together” when Hugh was on Broadway. John used to hang out at the stage door until the New York papers printed that they were an “item”. He made himself scarce after that.

  • Gay all the way

    That John guy is his BF. Stories of them are always in blind items. Hugh is sexy. Glad he’s bating for my team.

  • jj

    Hugh and John are the worst kept secret in Hollywood. John was Bryan Singer’s personal assistant and left him for Hugh.

  • Breepal

    Not much of a “secret” when everyone who reads entertainment blogs has read the rumor. Entertainment blogs and blind items, those highly regarded sources of accurate info, LOL.

  • bella

    he looks HOT for 40 :)

  • to 24

    i had a very long conversation with some people here in sydney who know hugh better than most the other day. these people all say the same thing: “we all know that hugh plays on both sides of the fence”.
    it must work for hugh because both his friend and his wife are very happy with the arrangement.

  • coco

    ava is cute

  • HUGH jackwoman

    不惑囉小曼
    還是很可口

  • sasha

    Deborra-Lee Furness is proof that Hugh Jackman is gay.

    She is a hound.

    Of course she would be accepting of this “arrangement” that the 3 of them have.

    No other guy would want her. And she gets to hang with one of the hottest guys in the world of celebrity.

  • dee

    He is HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT! too bad his wife isn’t.
    Ava is adorable!!

  • to sasha

    ok so his wife is the not the most attractive woman in the world. but for the record hugh is not the only celebrity not to marry a beautiful woman. i mean, look at the woman that daniel craig has. she’s not the most attractive but there she is. and then there’s the woman pierce brosnan is married to.

    everytime a picture of her shows up on this site all the attacks begin. the point here is that these three men have, for whatever reason, chosen to remain with these women. it’s not like these men dont have the ability to find more physically attractive women; they do. we can try to figure out why but at the end of day our opinions really dont matter.

  • sienna

    happy birthday hugh! he is so gorgeous and should dump that fugly wife of his and find someone who is right for him… all the best wishes to hugh!!:)

  • m

    don’t care if he is a gay or bi-sexual, i just looooooooove him!!!
    he is wasting his talent doing x men and all those action movies. he can sing and act and is super sexy!

  • llucya73

    Happy birthday Mr jackman!
    You’re the best 40 I ever seen. You’re also a great actor and a lovely guy, so no matter at all to me if you’re straight or have boyfriends or if you “play both sides of the fence”…

    Enjoy time with your family and people who loves you, give your fans spectacular movies and… be happy, all you can.
    Hapy birthday from a big big big fan.

  • dianel

    Happy birthday Hughh I think his wife is pretty

  • ra

    All of you *itches who say that Hugh’s wife is “fugly” and not worthy of him – how about you post YOUR photos on here and we’ll all sit in judgement of your looks and age and attire. I happen to think Deborra-lee is an attractive woman. And she wakes up next to Hugh – you don’t!

  • flower

    well said ra#

  • katie n

    It is sad that people do not understand that love is not about outward looks. She is a happy, bubbly kind of woman and they seem to have a great understanding and a bond. That is what love really is. Not having the trophy wife; blond, blue eyed but empty brains.

  • katie n

    #33, 36 and 38

    Well said. If you are a fan be happy for him that he has a wife, kids and friends (whatever kind) with whom he can be happy. Look at all the smiles…

    YOU ALL FUCKING BASTARDS & BITCHES WILL YOU EVER SHUT UP YOUR FUCKING MOUTHS AND STOP CALLING HUGH GAY? YOU ARE ALL PATHETIC HUMAN BEINGS AND JEALOUS OF HUGH JACKMAN WHO IS MORE FAMOUS, MORE RICH, MORE BEAUTIFUL, WITH A BETTER BODY, BETTER CARS, HOUSES, FAMILY AND ALL THIS STUFF THAT YOU’LL NEVER HAVE IN YOUR MISERABLE LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ESPECIALLY BEFORE YOUR 40s…

    HUGH, DON’T GIVE A SHIT FOR ALL THIS CRAP! ENJOY YOUR 40TH BIRTHDAY AND KNOW THAT THERE ARE THOUSANDS OTHERS WHO LOVE YOU AND WILL FOLLOW EVERY STEP YOU MAKE!!!

    HUGH, YOU ARE THE BEST THERE IS AT WHAT YOU DO… I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!! From your greatest fan ever…

  • http://www.justjared.com martha

    Oh, and to people in JUST JARED, you cut the curse-words I use but you don’t cut all these terrible and unfair things that stupid people say about Hugh Jackman or any other celebrity that can be found in your site… This site should feel shame for its politics cause it doesn’t even intend to protect all these stars that are featured here!!! JARED, YOU SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!

    # 43 martha

    martha, it’s not jared’s job to “protect” all these stars.

    it’s called freedom of speech for those who visit and post on this celebrity site. if jared censored all the so called “negative” comments then many would stop visiting his site.

    that would mean less posts which would mean less advertising $ in jared’s pocket. jared is looking out for jared.

    jared does delete comments that are really vile, vicious (especially towards celebrities’ children) or racist. that is a fact.

    but he doesn’t delete posters’ comments simply because some people may view them as negative because after all every one has their own opinion and the right to express it.

  • lizzie

    #42 – Martha – There is nothing wrong with being gay, bi or straight, and I bet Hugh Jackman would be the first one to say that everyone should be able to have those choices. That people wonder about his orientation is natural because he is such a shining, outstanding man. That’s the breaks of his profession.

  • Serissa

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUGH!

    You’re simply the best and you are loved by so many people, including your fans! So don’t listen to those miserable people who seem to lighten up their poor lives by spreading rumors and bashing other people via the internet because they have nothing better to do…

  • veronica Morales

    Happy birthday Hugh!
    We love you in Chile…
    Come to know ….
    Cheers to you and you family…..

  • LOL

    Sasha how do you know that no man would want her? How can you speak for all men when you’re not even a man yourself? You’re obviously speaking about yourself and what men have probably said about you. Not all men are shallow and like women with a nice personality, something she probably has and you don’t. She isn’t even that bad-looking, that’s your jealousy and insecurity talking. She’s probably a lot better looking than you are. She’s far from a hound, so you must be talking about yourself. You sound like you have rabbies with your constant bickering, but at the end of the day she still has Hugh and you don’t. Pathetic, that you would make an excuse and say Hugh is gay just because you’ll never have a chance with him. Ha!

  • Jada

    Maybe Hugh isn’t shallow and likes her for who she is a as a person? Shessh. Must be some really insecure people in here to talk about a woman’s looks on the internet. She probably looks better than most of the haters on here.

  • Colette

    I absolutely love this couple.

    I think Deborra-Lee Furness is beautiful inside and out. She has depth, personality and intelligence. She is not another plastic commodity, like we’re all used to seeing in Hollywood. She’s a real woman, keeping it real, and that’s why a lot of people admire her.

    You’ve made Australia proud. Both of you!!!
