Even though he has been married for nearly 17 years, Hugh Jackman is still the subject of gay rumours in the gossip rags. So what does his wife Deborra-Lee Furness think of the recurring chatter about her hubby's sexuality?

In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Hugh admitted that his wife is annoyed by what she reads on the internet, which she spends more time on than he does.

"Just recently, it bugs her," Hugh said. "She goes: 'It's big. It's everywhere!'"

Hugh's X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner also told the mag that, having seen Hugh and Deborra since they arrived in Hollywood, "I've been on five movie sets with him and have never seen him stray, have never seen him eye anyone".

The 44-year-old Les Misérables star and his 57-year-old wife have two adopted children, Oscar Maximillian, 12, and Ava Eliot, seven.

Hugh credits his wife for bringing him out of his shell.

"When I met Deb, it was 10 times better than my single life," he told Hollywood Reporter. "She was very beautiful. She was unbelievably fun — this energy, this spirit — irrepressible. And she had a confidence in herself. I had a massive crush on her instantly."

Check out what Hugh said in 2011 after a New York Times review of his Broadway show implied he was gay:
