Hugh Jackman celebrates 20th anniversary


Hugh and Deborra Lee

Hugh Jackman may be one a heartthrob of Hollywood but he only has eyes for his wife. For his 20th anniversary, he celebrated in the Caribbean with the love of his life Deborra-Lee Furness. Flashing a smile with a scruffy bead and a white shirt, the now 49-year-old star took a selfie with his wife and the sunset in the background.

Hugh Jackman has constantly expressed how much he loves his wife. In fact, he has stated he falls more and more in love with her every day. "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."
He has also expressed what a great woman she is on many occasions. "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.'"
The wolverine star had the opportunity to unwind by a beachside bar in St. Barts with the backdrop of the ocean and palm trees. And he reflected this on his photo which he captioned as “Our last night - topped off by this stunning sunset.” Hugh Jackman had told the press he had been looking forward to celebrating his 20th anniversary and he joked that the motto he lives by is “happy wife, happy life”. In fact, his relationship advice is: "Your wife is always right. Very simple. I think I'm going to get it tattooed on my forehead."
‘It'll be just the two of us,' he said. ‘We love the kids but they can rack off and find something else to do for a week. We want to relive our honeymoon.'
During the holidays, the couple joined their billionaire friend Jim Clark, 72, and his wife Kristy Hinze, 36, aboard their boat Comanche. Hugh and Deborra-Lee posed for a photo with Jim and the boat's skipper Ken Read that reached the Internet.
The Aussie stars, who have two children together named Oscar and Ava, got married in 1996 a year after meeting on the set of Australian TV show Correlli.
In love as ever, Hugh shared a lovely photo from his wedding day to mark the couple's two decade-long marriage. The 20 year old photo in black-and-white shows a young Hugh smiling widely as he stands beside his beaming bride, with the caption: '20 years ago on this day.'
The star expressed his vision on marriage that shows how much he cares about family. "When you fall in love and you get married it's such a relief,” he confessed. “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,' he said. "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. 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."
