Hugh Jackman is a Disneyland Dude

Wolverine’s Hugh Jackman meets Mickey Mouse outside Sleeping Beauty Castle with wife Deborra-Lee, 53, son Oscar, 8, and daughter Ava, 3, on Thursday (April 23) at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif.

The 40-year-old Aussie actor just returned to the U.S. after a worldwide tour to promote his movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine coming out May 1.

Earlier today, Hugh announced on Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show that after a contest he held on his own Twitter, he has split a $100,000 donation between Charity: Water and Operation of Hope.

    Why did he marry an old hag? He could have any hot woman he wanted! Call me shallow, but there’s no way this man is faithful to her. Maybe loyal. but NOT faithful.

    just how do you know that hugh jackson is not faithful to his wife. you obviously have not been paying attention to the recent interviews. hugh more than makes it clear how much he loves his wife. and yes, you are a shallow jerk.

  • Michelle

    Sweet!

    He married a REAL woman, not some bimbo that flaunts her
    boobs.

    Good for him!!

  • fan

    I’ve been a fan of Hugh Jackman for so many years and I’m starting getting sick of that “why did he marry an old, ugly woman when he could have any hot chick he would like blah, blah, blah…” Hello, NORMAL people don’t fall in love with someone based on his/her looks! I just can’t understand the way some people think…

  • shallow dirtbags

    Dunno why everyone is being so harsh, maybe he married his wife for more than looks alone. Guess thats too hard for some people to understand.

    Also, his wife maybe older then he is, but she looks pretty good for a 53yr old. Standing beside hugh Jackman would make anyone look ugly.

  • Shakirakitten

    For heaven’s sake. Hugh’s wife is probably a wonderful person, with a great heart and mind and spirit that is loved and adored by her husband. Why the shallowness from people on this board? Doesn’t everything in your character and what you stand for mean anything anymore?

  • fan

    Oh, and his wife is not soooo ugly! She looks great for her age, she is 53 years old, for God’s shake! And good for her that she doesn’t give a s**t about what some idiot people say about her looks and hasn’t done any plastic surgery on her face. For me, this woman absolutely RULES.

  • chris

    @fan: Right said, fan. There are many stupid people here who don’t like the real, normal woman and probably prefer fake, all-plastic-surgery middle-aged stars like Demi Moore, Nicole Kidman, Meg Ryan and Melanie Griffith (bleh!)

  • ra

    They are a fantastic family, clearly full of love for each other. Hugh always makes it very clear how much his wife and children mean to him. That’s one of the many things I admire and respect about the guy. It goes so far beyond superficial looks.

    And # 10 – what cruel thing to say about a 3 yr old child. Ava is a cutie and clearly having a wonderful time. It’s bad enough all the unkind remarks on here about Mrs. Jackman, but to also slam the kids is unforgiveable.

  • Mary-Ann

    @David: oh come on now, why do you have to be so rude…she is a lovely woman. i’m 40 and my husband is 50…and he isn’t an old man. I say good for them :)

  • nurd

    Both his kids are adopted right??

  • Peach

    I love Hugh – I think he is very happy with his wife and children. But I wish he was a bit more private with his personal life.

    That’s why I admire Christian Bale – he tries to keep his personal life private and doesn’t flaunt his wife and child for the cameras.

  • sam

    No. 21 – they aren’t actually “his” kids. They were adopted so can’t really be classed as their kids as they were both born to some other parents. I guess he must wonder constantly how he missed having his own biological kids – they would have been cute for sure. As for Oscar – well he is still pretty fine looking, but words fail me when it comes to Ava. I hear she has mild “downs”. It is such a shame he didn’t have his own family and not the kids he’s ended up with.

  • Sarah

    Obivously, he loves her. And that’s all that matters honestly. However, I must say that she did not age well. There are some women at 50 and 51 with 20 year old bodies. I’m not trying to call her ugly, she just didnt age well.

  • Sarah

    #21, I completely agree! The one thing I respect Christian Bale for is his privacy. You barely ever see this man. He didn’t even go to the oscars. And he’s never showing off his daugther. (She is a cutie-pie tho) Hugh on the other hand, has proven himself to be down-to-earth and very generous. Which are good qaulities to have. It’s hard to find celebs like that. But exposing kids to alot of media attention can cause problems down the line. Tomkat is a great example of this!

  • eddie

    Why don’t they have any biological children? I know Hugh’s wife is much older than him, but they have been together a long time, she must’ve been able to have kids then when she was younger.
    Anyone know? I’m just wondering.

    sam, you are an i*diot. If everybody were like you, there would be not adoptions. Do not breed, please.

  • Just Me

    @sam:
    I agree. They’re not really their kids since they’re adopted. True, they’re raising them like they are their son and daughter, but really, they can never be THEIR children.

  • Chili Pepper

    My question is why is he doing all these cheesy photo ops?

  • Kimberly

    He is an attention whore just like Tom Cruise! I hate when people are constantly showing their kids to the paps. And his kids are not even that good looking. Especially the girl. At least Suri is pretty and is always well-dressed for the camera.

    Oh please! Just look at some close up pics of her. Look at the nose and eye area. It definitely looks like she had some work done. Probably not recently. Maybe 13 years ago when she was 40 and realized she looked like shit. And sadly, she still does. Cosmetic surgery is just a big waste of money.

  • ashland

    #22 is it true she has mild downs ? i didn’t know that!

  • kpy

    @fan: Exactly my point…people these days…

    There’s nothing wrong with marrying someone older. There’s more to a person than just their appearance. If you look up some of his interviews he mentions his wife and talks about her lovingly.

    @Kimberly: He’s not an attention seeker. And he does not show off his kids to the paps. He’s told the paps to not let his kids know when they’re snapping pics cos he doesn’t want them to be self conscious. How is that considered showing off?? He loves his kids and that’s the only thing that matters. I think his kids are adorable. You’re just shallow.

  • g!na

    is Oscar australian aborigine? i heard Hugh is Australian & adopted his kids!

  • REGGI

    When Tomkat went to Disneyworld and posed with the Disney characters they were accused of being media whores and pimping, why is it ok for everybody else to do the same thing and nobody complains.
    You know after looking at most of the celebrity families on jj, Tomkat is one of the most beautiful, some how thats a problem to some people, it seems.

  • Goofy

    Definitely double standard here. When Tom & Katie and Brad & Angie were photographed with their kids, they were called famewhoring/ pimping their kids. And yet, the same were not said about other celebrities. Is there a code that we should know when one is considered pimping and the other not?

  • jock

    I agree with the 1st post. There’s no way this man is completely faithful. In all honestly ladies, you can love a woman and be loyal to her. And still cheat with someone else. Being loyal is just being in love and/or married or in a relationship with that person. And not planning to leave the wife and kids. <—That’s loyality (in a man’s head). But being faithful is sleeping with only that one person. And there’s no-way he’s faithful to her. I’m not saying he sleeps with tons of women. But I’m more than sure he’s cheated at least onced. Do you women know how many “happily married” men STILL cheat on their wives? Men like that, still love their wife and probably will never leave their wife for the mistress, but they still cheat. It happens so very often. Especially with rich men and/or who have jobs that keep them out of town and away from home alot. I’m sorry to break it you ladies! Just being honest here.

  • johnnyNacho

    Hugh Jackman and his Husband are no different then Tomkat or Bradgelina. (except those couples are hot). They all offer their children up for photo ops with the paps. They all love attention. I just don’t understand why people get on Tomkat and Bradgelina’s case about it. But never say anything about Hugh or other celebrities who do it as well. Only person you certainly never see pimping out his child is Batman. I think I’ve only seen the child once. And I can’t even remember what she looks like.

  • chelsea

    @g!na

    I remember a little article in people magazine. And Hugh said that Oscar is black/white and Ava is German/mexican. Both kids were adopted in the USA. Oscar in LA and Ava in Texas. If I remember correctly.

  • chelsea

    I also remember him and deb saying on different ocassions that mixed-race children are hard to place with families unlike white children. They are also activist in Australia for better adoption policies. Since it’s nearly impossible for couples in Australia to adopt, due to alot of strict laws and very expensive adoption costs.

  • TRUTH B TOLD

    Deb and Hugh tried to have biological children, but Deb suffered numerous miscarriages, which is why they adopted Oscar and Ava.

    Deb is known is Australia as one of the warmest, down to earth women in Australian Show Biz and Hugh cnbsiders himself the lucky one in that relationship.

  • Mary

    Obviously,none of you ignorant fuckers know what adoption means.If you adoption is.When you adopt a child the child is YOURS FOREVER and nobody has the right to say otherwise.Stop being mean to kids who are loved and wanted.Your parents probably wish they could have picked their child rather that having one like you.

    To – #38 johnnyNacho

    Come to think of it. Christian Bale’s wife is smoking HOTT! And she’s 3 years older than him. She’s 38 and he’s 35 I believe and she looks like she’s 28. Hugh should have married a woman like her. Never married an old broad unless she looks 10 years younger than you. I guess that’s what happen’s when you marry someone before your famous. You get stuck with the fuglys!

    Well what did she expect? Her eggs are like dry-rotted and dusty lol. She’s 53 years old. Alot of old women have trouble getting pregnant. (Not sure why anyone would wanna inpregnant them) He probably would have had very beautiful kids if he would have only married a young and healthy woman. Now he’ll always wonder “what if”? And that’s a terrible feeling/question to live with.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    That’s interesting. I’ve always heard that black children are generally the most unwanted and are extremely hard to place. White kids are usually picked first and then 2nd to them, are asian kids adopted from other countries.

    To – Mary #46.

    I wouldn’t call my mother hot. I’m not a prevert nor do I find any members of my family attractive in a sexual manner. Not that it matters to me, you, or anyone. But I will admit that she’s very beautiful. My mom is far from ugly. And she’s aging beautifully each day. Unlike Jackman’s wife.

    so cute! I love Hugh!

  • bradgelina

    to: #40

    Well by looking at both of his kids, it’s obvious they choose their children purely on looks. Saying mixed race kids are undesired is just a lie to cover the fact that they wanted pretty children. Everyone knows blacks are hard to place. That’s a no-brainer. It’s pretty clear that they wanted a light-skinned, mixed-looking child, with soft hair at the very least rather than a full black child.
