Hugh Jackman’s Wife Has Banned Him From Working With One A-List Actress

The couple have been married for 19 years.


Hugh Jackman’s wife Deborra-Lee Furness has revealed that she will not allow her husband to work with Angelina Jolie.

The couple have been married for 19 years and in a new interview with the Today Show, the actress revealed that she has told Jackman’s agent that he will not be taking on any projects featuring the Girl Interrupted star.

Jolie famously met now-husband Brad Pitt on the set of Mr And Mrs Smith, while he was married to Jennifer Aniston.

“I’ve told his agent he’s not allowed to work with Angelina [Jolie]. I’m sure she’s very nice and I love what she’s doing – shining a light on awareness for adoption…” she said, before adding: “just kidding”.

Furness also credited “picking the right partner” as being the secret to their happy marriage, revealing that they have never spent more than two weeks apart.

“And we don’t wanna be [apart] – he tells really good jokes and I miss him.”
