Gay Rumors Apparently Disrupting Hugh Jackman's Life

Like every famous, studly looking Hollywood actor, Hugh Jackman has long been slapped with rumors about his sexuality, but now he's opening up on the impact it has had on his wife of nearly 17 years, actress Deborra-Lee Furness.

In an interview with Hollywood Report, Jackman revealed that the rumors bother his wife. "Just recently, it bugs her," he says, blaming the Internet, which she frequents more than he does. "She goes: 'It's big. It's everywhere!'"

We understand that it might be insulting to have people accuse your husband as using you as his "beard," despite the fact that you have two children together. But we're not going to sit here and cry because it bothers you.

Opinions are like noses, everyone has one. No matter what you do or say, there are still going to be people out there that say Hugh Jackman is gay. It's called freedom of speech.

Mr. and Mrs. Jackman need to learn a little something from our man George Clooney:

I think it’s funny, but the last thing you’ll ever see me do is jump up and down, saying, ‘These are lies!’ That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community. I’m not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing.

My private life is private, and I’m very happy in it. Who does it hurt if someone thinks I’m gay? I’ll be long dead and there will still be people who say I was gay. I don’t give a s**t.
— George Clooney

I swear there is nothing Neil Patrick Harris can't do.

Do you think Hugh and family should just let it go? I navigate the internet just fine without running into content accusing him of being gay, surely his wife can do the same?
