Hugh Jackman Covers 'The Hollywood Reporter'

Hugh Jackman stares into the distance on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter magazine’s brand new issue.

Here’s what the 44-year-old Les Miserables actor had to share with the mag:

On his wife Deborra-Lee Furnessdispleasure with his homosexuality rumors: “Just recently, it bugs her. She goes: ‘It’s big. It’s everywhere!’”

On his mother abandoning him as a child: “Dad went off to England to bring her back, but by this point she was married to someone else, with a kid. It was really complicated. So when Dad arrived back – not three weeks later, as planned, but five days later – I just knew. I was old enough to go, ‘This is not happening.’”

On still getting approval from his father: “My father could only come to one [school sports] game a year because he had five kids, and on Saturday he had to shop. If my father was there, it would be 50 percent greater. Having his approval is something that still drives me.”

    What a beautiful man inside and out

    And here we have a very nice man, talented actor and good looking

    Very complicated childhood. He is a beautiful, talented, driven man with a very big career, an involved father, a loving husband, and probably some complications, like each and every one of us deal with.

  • No. 5

    Never thought he was good looking but what a lovely man. Always impressed by his genuine attitude and open nature (as well as ability to express himself beyond the vapid ponderings of most HW stars).

  • Hell

    I love this man. He seems nice and he’s so handsome…. perfect combo

  • Shamu

    He’s not married to a bimbo model/actress/cocktail waitress and that makes him automatically gay. It’s a sad world we live in.

    Anyway we can report this stupid sex toy salesman?! I’m getting tired of these ads in every thread.

    @see: Learn the whole story. He has made his peace with his mother a long time ago. When he was born she was only about 28/29 with five children, 10,000 miles from home and suffering severe postpartum depression. Still she stuck it out for 8 years until he was in school. Sure he was hurt and angry at the time – all children are to some degree when parents split. Part of his understanding of human flaws and great acting ability probably comes from that experience.

    Tell it like it is Jamie!

  • Amy

    I agree Jamie, He has said he mother suffered from depression and probably married too young. She did stcick it out for about 15 years as his older sister was 15 or 16 when hugh was 8. I have an 8 yr old and don’t know how I could leave him but 8 is much more self sufficient and less needy than 5 or 6 still, had to be very hard for him…

    It’s just because he likes to sing and dance, #6

    Who cares if he is gay, or not. He is an awesome, awesome man and actor. One of a kind.
