In Hollywood, some couples seem made to last forever, and their separation is always a real surprise to the general public. This was the case when the divorce of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt was announced a few years ago. But if there is one announcement that no one expected, it is that of the separation of Hugh Jackman and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness.
The love story of Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness
The iconic actor, notably known for having played Wolverine in the saga X-Menmet the woman who would become his wife in 1995, while he was on the set of the Australian show Correlli. Actress, director and producer, she was in the front of the car that came to pick him up: “I will never forget that moment. She took off her seat belt, turned around, stuck out her hand, took off his sunglasses and said, “Hi, my name is Deborra-Lee Furnessnice to meet you.” I remember thinking, “I like this girl.”
A year later, in April 1996, Hugh Jackman marries the one for whom he fell in love at first sight. The couple had two children, Oscar Maximilien, born in 2000, and Ava-Eliott, born in 2005. Inseparable, the two actors spent as much time as possible together, until very recently. They were notably together during the last Met Gala, lovingly posing on the red carpet.

Unfortunately, their love story is now over. The couple took the initiative to avoid the rumors, and released a statement in the columns of People, declaring: “We have been fortunate to share nearly 3 decades together as husband and wife in a wonderful and loving marriage. Our course is now changing and we have decided to part ways to pursue our individual growth.”
Hugh Jackman and his ex-wife want to stay positive, and say: “Our family has been and always will be our highest priority. We enter this next chapter with gratitude, love and kindness. We greatly appreciate your understanding in respecting our private lives as our family goes through this transition in all of our lives.” All before specifying that they would no longer comment on the issue. No question for them to have a resounding celebrity divorce.
