Hugh Jackman Gives 1.4 Billion Reasons to Fight Poverty

Hugh Jackman Gives 1.4 Billion Reasons to Fight Poverty

Hugh Jackman and wife Deborra-Lee Furness attend the Children of the City Benefit Gala at Pier Sixty in New York City on Thursday (September 30).

The couple came out to support the grassroots organization, which provides programs and services for at-risk children and families.

Hugh, 41, also fulfilled his humanitarian duties the day before.

The Aussie actor was the guest speaker at Global Poverty Project‘s “1.4 Billion Reasons” event at New York University.

Hugh helped raise awareness about the 1.4 billion people in the world who live in poverty – many on less than $1.25 a day.

  • Mark

    Well done Mr & Mrs Jackman! And a big f.u.c.k off to all those who hate you…

  • holly

    now that is what i call a man! He is all man! OMG how HOT !!! xxx

  • Lucy

    I agree totally with No 2: All the Jackman haters: Sit on your middle finger and rotate!

  • Martine

    Hugh Jackman, here’s another reason to love you http://www.charitywater.org/donors/oscarjackman/

  • gemma

    how hot can u possibly get? this guy in my opinion is the hottest celeb ever, he is so genuine and always seems happy.. AND it does help that he is so truly georgeous, sexy, handsome, the list is endless.. What i wouldnt give to be with this guy, Mrs jackman is one lucky lady having him in her bed everynight!!

  • Suzy

    @gemma: Rumor has it they sleep apart these days… Apparently things haven’t been going well for some time…
    It’s a shame not many Hollywood marriages survive in this enviroment. They were really an example for all Hollywood relationships!

  • lu

    ahhh!! love him!!!

  • Lydia

    @Suzy: And who told you this, the National Shit Enquirer this couple never has been so strong and in love as now. Resign you and avoid us this science fiction novels.
    I hate that people who presume to know everything just because believe all the crap they hear.

  • me

    He is a good looking man, she is not.

  • STEVE

    The wife looks like his freakin’ MOTHER!!!

  • Pookie

    I agree…..are you sure she is NOT his mom??

  • Lydia

    @ pookie and Steve: many actors have preferred to marry real women
    rather than stupid dolls totally inflated with silicone. The world is not prerogative of those females that living with plastic surgeon in their pocket, not all men are shallow like you.
    if you want some examples: Sean Connery did not marry Miss Universe,
    Prince Charles Windsor has preferred Camilla Parker to Diana Spencer, Harrison Ford has had two children by a woman that did not look like Charlize Theron, Hugh Laurie has been married for years with a woman who could never win a beauty contest, etc, etc…

  • laverdadduele

    I love Hugh, he’s very handsome and talented. Grandma is looking hideous as always. What a waste! he could do sooooo much better.

  • Ventura

    @Suzy: Suzy, be that as it, isn’t correct tell here, are private matters. You worked for him and I understand you’re sorry about his problems, but just for this reason you should not be in a place like Just Jared to tell us about their personal problems. A bit of discretion is synonymous with style.

  • Patty Pendergast

    He leans in to her – he loves her, with whoever else he loves too…it’s cool.

  • AreYouKiddingMe?

    @Ventura: Don’t be such a hypocrite. The reason you’re on this site is cause you wanna know these kinds of things. It’s a GOSSIP site for gods sake! If Suzy wants to tell this to people let her be. You can also just ignore it but by commenting on it, you’re giving it attention and showing that in a way, you care about what she says! You don’t wanna read those kinds of things, don’t come here. It’s really that easy.
    That being said, I think we can all agree he’s one very fine looking man!

  • well

    I don’t know. Something does not seem right.

  • Privacy

    @AreYouKiddingMe?:
    No hypocrisy. The privacy of celebrity or ordinary people
    is called privacy because it’s PRIVATE
    Be celebrities is not an excuse to allow a group of strangers meddling affairs of anyone staying hidden behind a computer.
    If I’m here it’s just to reiterate this basic concept to people like you; ‘respect’ isn’t optional and is due to all, no exceptions.
    The only value of this site is just posting beautiful photos and this is the only thing that interests me.

  • need a rest

    A mixed orientation marriage is hard to maintain. Sometimes it is better to let go.

  • criss

    I don´t want to be mean , but he is too much for her. Dorry that´s what I think

  • criss

    he is too perfect for her

  • chocolatecookie

    his beard is starting to thin..

    give it up already..

  • Kaze

    Don’t be stupid. None of you personally know Hugh Jackman and his wife and those who say they know their, if don’t telling a bunch of lies,
    I congratulate to her or him sarcastically. I think all bosses of the world would love to work with you my dear, is really great to have an assistant who tells their privacy on internet blogs, do you want applause?
    And you, chocolatecookie, go to your father and cut his beard.

  • mina

    My husband and I sleep in separate bedroom. But I do go to his room sometime to sleep. We still have sex in the weekend. We go on weekend dates like dinning and walk in central park, broadway, and dance. He buys me flowers and always remember our anniversary. calls me everyday from work to chat. We still love each other.

    It is great to have your own space like your own room with all your own junk and nobody is touching them.

    People freak out when a married couple sleep in different room. So old fashion. It’s call having your own space to meditate.

  • Terry

    People, grow up. What exactly is “hideous” about her? She is a normal looking woman, not ugly, not pretty, just normal. She married him before anybody of you jealous freaks knew even exists. They have been together for 15 years, deal with it and go get a life.

  • chocolatecookie

    @mina:

    no one really knows what theyre doing in their house..but..now we all know what you are doing in yours..and its completely screwed up..as opposed to spending time on here perhaps some marriage counseling is what you should be looking into..maybe youre a beard too!

  • mina

    chocolatecookie please go get a brain, maybe you don’t have one. because you are not capable of understanding.
    I am just stating that alot of married couples do what I do and that dosen’t mean the marriage is not working. I know so many married couple(I lost count) do that and are married for more than 30 years.

  • Serissa

    Why is it that people have to put someone down who really doesn’t deserve it? Mr. Jackman is from what I hear or see one of the nicest and most humble persons around. So why defame him and why always insult his wife, who is affectionate and cordial? Envy?

  • Brain

    @GRAND THEFT AUTO: Hey ass.hole, continues with this s.hit and we report you to admin of Just Jared like a spammer.

  • Sheila

    Hugh Jackman is one of the necest, most caring celebrities. None of us knows about his personal life so why do you comment with such nastiness? The truth is no one knows what goes on in anyone’s personal life or bedroom, so leave it alone. Let’s cooment on what we see, and know. He is a great man, terrific actor and singer, and they all seem very happy with a nice family. Why do you all go on and onw with nasty, mean, cruel comments. Be happy for them.
