He's a triple threat; a star who can sing, dance and act. At 6'2" and all scruff and biceps. The Australia, has left people stammering. Hugh Jackman's wife of 12 years, Deborra-Lee Furness, calls his perfect form "the Body of Doom - but I like what's inside": a romantic who sings ballads at home and makes pancakes for kids Oscar, 8, and Ava, 3.
People magazine's executive editor, Jess Cagle, said Wednesday on NBC's "Today" show that Jackman is a "surprising choice," but he'd been on the editors' minds "for a long time and it seemed like this was the year to do him."
Cagle pointed out that not only is Jackman's career at its peak, with the "X-Men" movies and his upcoming epic with Nicole Kidman "Australia," but he's "built like a tank."
