As we learned from our exclusive interview, Hugh Jackman isn't just a fantastic actor, a great singer, a skilled dancer and a living Adonis. He's charming, he's gorgeous and he has the best accent ever — an accent that's only for someone raised in Australia by English parents. But what makes Hugh Jackman so incredible has nothing to do with his portrayal of Wolverine nor his chiseled bod. It's the devotion and adoration he has for his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, and his kids that makes him a one of a kind character. His refreshingly romantic love quotes will absolutely warm your heart, make you giggle and maybe even make you shed a tear. Check out his words of wisdom below!
First, addressing the gay rumors...
"I have a wife and a son, but the gay rumors have started. I guess it's a sign that I'm moving up the ladder."
On marriage, parenting and life in general...
"When you fall in love and you get married, it's such a relief. You're like, 'Oh, this feels so right and this woman is just so great and I love her.' And then you have a kid — it kind of just gets even bigger. And it's frustrating and it's tiring and all those things but your sense of, like, living life becomes so much bigger."
"The best part about being married is that feeling of being a team. All couples have ups and downs, so having someone you trust is priceless."
"The activity of being a husband, a father — those are roles, too, but underneath them is the spiritual center that connects us all, and that's what's most important."
On his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness (get ready to swoon)...
"I run into people, really powerful, big people, who say, 'Congrats to you, but your wife is really one of the most talented.' And every time I hear that, it reminds me of the sacrifice she's made, her selflessness, her love and what she's done for the kids ... We always made family a priority but I'm acutely aware, everyday, that actually, when it comes to sacrifices, Deb has shouldered most of those. In fact, I was telling her right now, 'You need to get back to work because you're just too good to waste that talent. Everyone needs to see it.'"
"If you ask my wife, the biggest fault is my inability around the house. She says the only thing handy about me is that I'm close by. And, I have a terrible memory. I'm bad at saying no. I often double-book. There are a lot of things."
"I have a terrific marriage, but unlike a lot of relationships where they ebb and flow, no matter what happens you fall deeper and deeper in love every day. It's kind of the best thing that can happen to you. It's thrilling."
"The thing I find hard is that a lot of people won't even see her, and they'll obviously be talking to her to get to me. I've seen Deb literally be knocked out of the way. She just knocks 'em back. She's a morning person. Deb pops up, and it's, 'Come on, baby. Let's go!' Yet at night, she falls asleep instantly, sometimes in mid-conversation. She's fallen asleep during every movie I've ever done."
And lastly, his timeless relationship advice...
"Your wife is always right. Very simple. I think I'm going to get it tattooed on my forehead."
Smart man, Hugh.
