Deborra-Lee Furness Is Hugh Jackman's Leading Lady,0.jpg

You know the saying - "Behind every great man there's a great woman?" Well this is the case with Deborra-Lee Furness, the wife of Hugh Jackman, who was recently named the "Sexiest Man Alive" by People Magazine.

Deborrah-Lee Furness and Hugh Jackman met while on the set of the set of the Australian TV show Correlli in 1996. Jackman said that he was so smitten with Furness he made plans to ask for her hand in marriage three months after they met and started dating.

Deborra-Lee Furness and Hugh Jackman married in April 1996 and adopted two children, Oscar Maximillian, 8, and Ava Eliot, 3.

Deborra-Lee Furness is currently filming the movie Blessed.

Jackman remains modest about his recent "sexy man" status. He recently told reporters, "My wife (Deborra-Lee Furness) said, 'I could have
told them that two years ago,' Then she said, 'Obviously Brad Pitt wasn't available this year.'"
