Australia star Hugh Jackman says it was like love at first sight when he met his wife Deborra Lee-Furness almost 15 years ago.
“It was my first big acting job on [Australian TV show] Correlli – she was the star, my leading lady. She was beautiful and larger than life. Everyone on set was in love with her. I had a crush on her for ages and started planning my proposal after three months.”
Hugh, 40, credits Deborra and their kids Oscar, 8, and Ava, 3, with helping him to handle the pressures of fame.
“My wife Deb, and kids Oscar and Ava, keep me grounded. When I won the Sexiest Man Alive award, Oscar said, ‘What, you?’ Deb’s amazing, nothing fazes her. She doesn’t have an ounce of jealousy and there’s no competition between us. I’ve always been romantic – I love Deb more every day.”
As for Deborra, she says of her husband’s legions of adoring female fans, “I’m starting to get used to it now.”
She recently talked about their happy home life, saying, “I think it’s just chemistry. When things come together, they’re meant to be together. It works.”

Tori Spelling is speaking out on her so-called feud with her mom Candy, saying there’s no feud at all, they’ve just “never meshed.”
“It’s not like we’re not talking, we just haven’t talked,” Tori, 35, tells People. “I love my mother. I’ve always loved her [and] no doubt she loves me. There’s no feud. We simply never meshed.”
Tori, who has kids Liam, 2, and Stella, 10 months, with husband Dean McDermott, reveals that the last communication she had with her mom was an email she sent during her last pregnancy.
As for Candy’s recent claims that Tori has cut off access to her grandchildren – she’s never even met Stella! – the 90210 star says the onus is on her mother to develop a relationship with the kids.
“I, in no way, cut her off. She is welcome to make the effort if she wants to be present in their lives. She knows how to reach me, she knows where we live. If she would love to see her grandchildren, she should really make an effort to reach out and see them.”
Mother and daughter both have new books out this month – Candy’s recently published memoirs are titled Stories from Candyland, while Tori’s Mommywood hits bookshelves tomorrow.

Violet Affleck was pretty in pink on Sunday afternoon as she left an Easter party with her parents Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner.
The latest issue of In Touch features a short interview with the tired mom-of-two, who talks about family life since the arrival of Seraphina Rose, 3 months.
Jennifer, 37, says that her girls are definitely keeping her up nights as she goes “from one to the other all the time.”
“I’m certainly not sleeping. Violet was a good sleeper, typically. But now that there is a new baby, she wakes up when the baby wakes up. She wants me, too, so there are times when they are both up all the time.”
As for her partner-in-parenting Ben, she has nothing but the highest praise.
“Ben is pretty ideal as far as I’m concerned,” Jen reveals. “I don’t think you could do any better. I don’t think there’s a lovelier person.”
