Deborra-Lee Furness, the 57-year-old actress married to Hugh Jackman, told 60 Minutes this weekend that speculating Jackman’s sexuality is “offensive,” “stupid,” and “annoying.”
So shut up already, guys.
She called the persistent gay rumors “frustrating” before her husband chipped in, telling cameras that “If I was [gay], I would be.”
“It’s just offensive,” she continued. “If he was gay, fine, he would say he’s gay. It has gotten so out of whack … it’s stupid, yeah, it’s annoying, because it’s not true.”
I think the gays just keep holding out hope because he’s talented, well-liked and um, LOOK at him. I don’t think the “rumors” are malicious.
In February the actor told The Hollywood Reporter
the speculation “bugs” his wife and he revealed she has a hard time
ignoring whispers about his alleged homosexuality. “She goes: ‘It’s big.
But clearly the wife is done with it.
