Hugh Jackman is featured in the latest issue of the Hollywood Reporter, which chronicles his transition from working actor to Oscar nominated star of ‘Les Miserables’.
Jackman also opens up about the persistent gay rumors that pervade the internet whenever his name is mentioned, and he admits that it has started to bother his wife. He says, “Just recently, it bugs her. She goes: 'It's big. It's everywhere!'"
However, Jackman’s X-Men producer, Lauren Shuler Donner, denies the rumors, saying, “I have seen him with Deborra since the beginning of their trip to Hollywood, and I've been on five movie sets with him and have never seen him stray, have never seen him eye anyone. I met him when he did Oklahoma! [at London's Royal National Theatre in 1999]. He was genuine, hugely talented. He was in love with his wife that day and still is."
While the gay rumors may be persistent, everything else that’s said about Jackman is that he’s one of the nicest and hardest working actors in Hollywood today. He never complains about working conditions, and he’s a family man above everything else. In fact, he reveals that after shooting his next film ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’, he will be returning home to spend some much needed time with his family. ‘Days of Future Past’ is set to begin later in the spring, and rumored to be shooting in Canada.
