Deborra-Lee Furness, who has been married to Jackman for close to 20-years, is okay with him being hot and heavy with the likes of Scarlett Johansson (Scoop) andAshley Judd (Someone Like You) on the big screen, but isn’t so keen on having her hubby work with Brad Pitt‘s sexy wife, Jolie.
In a joint interview with Jackman, 46, onAustralia’s Today Show, Furness, 59, quipped, “I’ve told his agent he’s not allowed to work with Angelina,” adding, “I’m sure she’s lovely.”
The couple also shared their secret to a long, happy marriage. “That’s the deal with this business. If you get it right, if you pick the right partner, then, you traverse all those travails and challenges ,” Furness, 59, said.
We’ve managed to keep that,” Jackman chimed in. “Deb had a rule, never apart for more than two weeks.”
Gushing over her heartthrob husband, Furness added, “And we don’t wanna be apart. He tells really good jokes. I mean I miss him.”
