Hugh Jackman, Wife Blast 'Stupid' Gay Rumors Again: VIDEO


In what has become a biannual event, Hugh Jackman and his wife  Deborra-Lee Furness appeared on Australia's 60 Minutes to roll out complaints about how tired they are of the gay rumors that follow Jackman.

Said Jackman: "If I was [gay], I would be...It's to me not the most interesting thing about a person anyway, but I do get frustrated for Deb, because I see Deb go 'Ah, this is just crazy'."

Said Furness: "It is just wrong, it's like, it's a lie...It's just offensive. If he was gay, fine, he would say he's gay. It has gotten so out of whack … it's stupid, and yeah, it's annoying, because it's not true."

  1. Gee Countervail... so if a guy dares to marry someone older than him and actually show loyalty to staff even though they are (gasp) gay then he's queer too?!?!?!?

    It's kind of hard to ask straight people to dump the old fashioned stereotypes of gays being show tune singing nancy boys if we're still clinging to them when we decide that we want a hot guy for ourselves.

    I think both Jackman and his wife have been more than generous and patient in dealing with these mean spirited rumours (seemingly based purely on the argueement "he's too hot for her") and they are MORE than in their rights to express their annoyance.

  2. If homosexuality is to be treated as a normal, natural thing, then perhaps people should STOP MAKING SUCH A BIG DEAL about people coming out, whether or not they're gay. Live and let live.

    The media makes a lot of money from these pageviews so why feed them?

    I've had people get nosy, try to screw up my relationships with gossip because they didn't feel I was worthy and it takes a toll on a person. They love and support each other. That's what matters. I can't believe people are cutting her looks, like any of you are so perfect. There's nothing wrong with her.

    Perhaps this snippet is part of a longer interview and they happened to be asked about it. No matter, celebs are damned if they do, damned if they don't.

  3. it sounded to me as if they were answering a question. the same thing happens to jennifer anniston; inevitably, the interviewer asks about brad and angie, and she answers, and when they edit the interview they leave that in because it's what they figure their demo wants to read about, and then everybody says, "obviously she can't move past it, or WHY ELSE is she still bringing that UP after all these years?"

  5. I cant blame her for speaking about this. I imagine it cant be easy going to Hollywood functions knowing that everyone is mentally dismissing you. Even hanging out with family friends would be wierd. "Do they think I am a fraud? A gold digger? Have they read the latest gossip piece? Do they think my husband is settling and could do better?" I think it would breed insane insecurities and frankly anybody who doesnt think that there can be insecurities within a loving marriage, has never been married.

    They may seem petty to outsiders but if you had to live that for 20 years, you might start to get frustrated too.
