Hugh Jackman Sitting on Idina Menzel's Lap Was a 'Welcome Moment,' She Says!

Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness hold hands while arriving at a hotel on Tuesday (June 17) in New York City.

Earlier this month, the 45-year-old actor hosted the 2014 Tony Awards and sat on nominee Idina Menzel‘s lap while performing a number to celebrate all of the ladies up for Best Actress in a Musical.

“It was unexpected, yeah,” Idina told Access Hollywood. “It was a nice unexpected moment, a welcomed unexpected moment. And then my mom has all of these friends calling her saying, ‘Why didn’t she, you know, grab onto him a little bit more if he was sitting on her lap?’ But, you know, it was a little intimidating.”
