In a surprising turn of events, Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-lee Furness have made the decision to separate after nearly 27 years of marriage. The beloved couple, celebrated for their enduring love story, conveyed this news to their fans and the public through a joint statement to People magazine.
The statement read, “We have been blessed to share almost three decades together as husband and wife in a wonderful, loving marriage. Our journey now is shifting, and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth.”
Following the announcement, Hugh Jackman was spotted on the streets of New York, where a paparazzo approached him to inquire about the divorce. According to TMZ, the actor responded, “I don’t feel quite right talking about it on the street. But I appreciate your thoughts, man. It’s a difficult time.” Hugh was dressed in a dark T-shirt that accentuated his muscular physique, paired with black pants, shoes, and sunglasses.
When asked about the highly anticipated film “Deadpool 3,” Hugh Jackman replied, “Well, I can’t really know … until I get back to work. As soon as possible, man,” before walking away.
Hugh and Deborra’s remarkable love story began in 1995 when they first crossed paths on the set of the Australian TV series “Corelli.” Within a year of their meeting, they exchanged vows on April 11, 1996, marking the commencement of their enduring and celebrated union.
A notable aspect of their relationship has been the significant age difference between Hugh and Deborra, with Deborra being 13 years older than Hugh. This distinctive facet of their partnership has piqued the interest of fans and the media, making them one of Hollywood’s most cherished couples.
