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.

    @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!

    @Suzy: And who told you this, the National **** 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.

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

    Lydia Says:

    @ 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…

    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 Says:

    @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 Says:

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

    AreYouKiddingMe? Says:

    @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!

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

    Privacy Says:

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
