Recently, my little brother accused me and my people of “always trying to make everybody gay.” Instead of my usual retort (“Don’t think I don’t know what went down at your frat house when you were in college, dude.”), I answered with the truth – “Just the sexy people!” There’s a very simple reason why the gays keep trying to make Hugh Jackman like dick. Here it is. Hugh knows this and has been gently rebuffing gay rumors for years now. In a recent interview (via Metro News), he laughed them off again. But this time – he revealed his theory on why everybody thinks he’s downlow stepping out on the missus.
In 2003, Hugh starred as gay singer-songwriter Peter Allen in a rebooted version of 1998’s The Boy From Oz musical on Broadway. In the show, Hugh as Peter had love scenes with other men. Hugh thinks that everybody thinks he’s gay because he was kissing dudes every night. Hugh thinks that one lengthy kiss is what started people thinking Wolverine isn’t as into Jean Grey as everyone previously thought.
The beefy Australian, who has two adopted kids, blames a lingering smooch from his 2003 role as a gay singer-songwriter in The Boy From Oz. ‘I was literally just locking lips… I started to laugh so hard,’ Hugh explained.
Hugh doesn’t explain why two men kissing is funny unless you’re a ten-year-old from a conservative family, but ok. *shrugs* Let’s chalk it up to nervousness? He went on to say that The Greatest Showman knows that the show must always go on despite your attack of the giggles!
‘So I stay kissing him, because I thought, “I’m just going to laugh. I’m going to stay here until it subsides” and it never subsided and the whole audience could see my body shaking, so they started.’
But does it bother Hugh that those gossipy gays are always trying to stir up reasons to keep calling him “Huge Assman”?
The Greatest Showman star, who married actress Deborra-Lee Furness, 62, in 1996, isn’t bothered by the claims. ‘Some dudes do get upset, some dudes say, “Don’t say I’m gay” [but] I am good,’ 50-year-old Hugh said on US radio.
Hugh is 50 and, unlike some of his middle-aged Hollywood peers, he isn’t with some barely legal starlet with pneumatic breasts. People get nervous when the guy is younger and hotter than the gal. It upsets everyone’s concept of how the world works. Who knows? Maybe they’re in love. Or maybe he is gay and married his bestie. What we do know for 100% sure is that chances are, most of us horny hoes out there aren’t going to be getting with him in this lifetime or the next. Which is a damn shame cuz’ the tongue action alone…
