Here are some photos of Hugh Jackman (who arrived in an Audi) at the London premiere of The Wolverine. I’m not usually into Hugh with facial hair, but I have to admit that he looks very suave and dapper here in this classy blue suit, which is a more interesting choice than the usual black we see from dudes; yet it’s not weird like a certain burnt sienna suit we saw Bradley Cooper sporting on a recent red carpet.
I’ll get to more red carpet fashion in just a moment, but first, here’s some more of the interview that arrived with Hugh’s hilarious Good Housekeeping cover. Last time, Hugh was busy talking about how “surprise” is an integral part of keeping romance alive in his marriage to wife Deborra. Now he’s talking again about those pesky gay rumors because journalists just won’t stop asking:
His own reaction to the gay rumors: “I don’t really pay attention. If someone’s going to spend their time saying, ‘You’re really not 6′ 2″; you’re 5′ 10″,’ ” he says, using height as an analogy for sexual orientation, ‘I’ll tell them once, ‘I am 6′ 2″.’ Then, whatever you want to believe, it’s up to you. Am I going to waste energy going, ‘I’m so mad that this person says I’m 5′ 10″?” He shakes his head. “We really only get mad when there’s an element of truth, right?”
On his wife: “If anyone meets my wife, they’re like, ‘You’re all right, Hugh, but your wife is awesome.’ Everyone who meets her loves her. So it’s just wrong. It almost makes me sad for the people [saying those things]. They’re obviously in a bad place.”
On their IVF & miscarriages: “It’s a tough process. While you’re going through IVF and get pregnant, every day [the feeling is], We’re still holding! We’re still holding…! You know how precarious it is and how much she’s been through to get there. And [miscarriage] is a massive letdown. It’s really difficult–and much harder for the woman.” After their second miscarriage, “I just remember saying to Deb, ‘We’ve always wanted to adopt. Let’s start going about that.’”
They chose to adopt interracial children as a “no brainer”: “People wait 18 months to adopt a little blond girl, while biracial children are turned away.” Still, they were rejected by a few birth mothers’ parents who didn’t want to give a child to “those Hollywood types who never stay together.”

Hugh and Deborra have already discussed the gay rumors together in a public venue, and Deborra admits that she finds the talk to be “offensive,” and I don’t blame her one bit. From where I’m sitting, I think Deb takes these rumors very personally because they are aimed more at her (and her supposedly unorthodox looks as the wife of an A-lister) because she’s supposedly “not good enough” for Hugh unless, of course, the marriage is a sham. Hugh stresses to Good Housekeeping that he tries to be empathetic to Deb’s concerns on the matter, but the talk just doesn’t phase him that much.
Here’s Famke Janssen at the premiere. Her blush pink dress isn’t awful, but it’s fairly shapeless and not flattering to her figure. Also, these “Hemlock Grove” hair extensions weigh down Famke’s usually dramatic facial structure in a considerable manner, which makes her look pretty tired. She’s had some work done in recent years, right?
Here’s Hugh with two more of his Wolverine costars, Tao Okamoto and Rila Fukushima. Rita is wearing the same Stella McCartney jumpsuit that both Jennifer Lawrence and Selena Gomez have worn this year. That jumpsuit really gets around.
