Hugh Jackman may be one of Hollywood's sexiest men today, but his wife Deborrah Lee Furness turned down a date with rock legend Mick Jagger to be with him while he was still a struggling actor.
The Australian actor fell for Furness almost a decade his senior while they were working together for the TV series
'Corelli' in 1995. The 'X-Men' star finally arranged to spend an evening with her at a dinner party but the date was nearly broken when the 'Rolling Stones' frontman, Jagger tried to persuade the blonde to go out with him instead, reported
"I decided to have a dinner party and invite her with about 10 people. But before the crepes could be served, Deb's mobile phone rings. It's a very famous friend of hers who says, 'Deb, I'm outside Hugh's house in a limo with Mick
Jagger and Mick says, 'Come down, let's party'," recalls Jackman.
"I say, 'Go with Mick.' But she gets on the phone and says, 'You tell Mick I'm having dinner with Hugh Jackman,' and hangs up. I went, 'Wow, that's pretty cool,' and confessed my crush, and then she said she had a crush on me, too!" added the 40-year-old actor who has been married to Furness for 12 years now.
