It’s that time of year again when Hugh Jackman’s wife of 15 years and the mother of his chirruns, Deborra-Lee Furness, gives a standard denial to the rumor that she’s the hardest working beard in the bearding business. This time Page Six Magazine brought up the gay rumor and Deborra-Lee performed another monologue straight out of The Beard Doth Protest Much!
“The line I heard was, ‘Wolverine? Who would have thought?’ Hugh and I don’t pay much heed. It’s kind of tragic that these people have nothing better to do than gossip about people they don’t know.”
“Tragic” is the nicest thing I’ve been called today, so I’ll move on from that shade. You know, just when I start to think that if I sit in front of a Times Square glory hole (Note: Do they even those anymore or did Mickey Mouse plug that shit up to?) long enough Wolverine will stick his wolverpeen into the gay communion booth, Hugh Jackman pops up to say it will never happen. Hugh and Deborra-Lee have both denied the gay rumor so many times that it doesn’t even matter anymore (not that it ever did).
Yes, Deborra-Lee could be bearding for Hugh while he humps on his producing partner in the guest room. And yes, Deborra-Lee and Hugh could be in a genuine relationship and he only plays gay on Broadway. Either way, Deborra-Lee gets to watch a topless Hugh sing show tunes while making chocolate chip pancakes in the morning, so I guess she’s the one winning at LIFE. Give her all the Share the Wealth cards and put her in Millionaire Acres.
