The happily married couple first met on set, where Furness was the star and Jackman was an up and comer just out of performing arts school. They shared their first kiss in front of cameras, and everyone around them instantly saw the chemistry.
“I decided, I won’t ask her to marry me for six months. Then after four months I thought, That’s the most ridiculous rule!” he recalls.
Aside from being an actor and devoted family man, Jackman has also created National Adoption Week, a campaign that hopes to raise awareness for the many orphans that do not have home and families to rely on.
“I’m working with Americans to create an international campaign to shine a light on the fact that there are 153 million orphans in the world. If that were a country, it would be the ninth-largest in the world, just ahead of Russia.”
