2. Hugh Jackman & Deborra-Lee Furness
The show, which featured Furness as the leading lady, was Jackman’s first acting gig and he played her love interest.
However, the Australian actress, director and producer now takes a backseat to her X Men leading man.
The couple was immediately drawn to each other and Jackman popped the question after just four months of dating. The quick romance led to a 1996 wedding, and, with nearly 18 years of marriage under their belts, the mismatched couple seems to be defying the odds.
The couple, who are the parents of two children, say that they are as attracted to each other today as they were all those years ago. Though her career in acting and directing isn’t going anywhere right now, Furness stays busy with philanthropy work.
In her home country, she is a board member for the Worldwide Orphans charity and seeks to bring attention to bring international attention to the issues surrounding children without families.
