Hugh Jackman says he has sex while dressed as Wolverine: attention seeking?

Hugh Jackman

I’m not so sure that this story is true at all even though it’s based upon actual quotes from Hugh Jackman and his wife, Deborra Furness. Perhaps this talk is all in the interest of promoting the massively budgeted The Wolverine movie that comes out this week; and perhaps the discussion is also part of the plan to counteract the gay rumors that persist about their marriage, but the couple is insisting that they have sex together sometimes while Hugh is dressed in character as his X-Men mutant. Sounds ridiculous, right? Yeah.

This tale could be true though in a way because Hugh has already talked about how he wore his claws around the house just to get used to them, but the thought of having sex while wearing metal blades is akin to thinking about Edward Scissorhands doing the same thing while weeping tears of glass. I am assuming that Hugh is also referring to staying “in character” as Wolverine while doing the deed, which makes me wonder why anyone would want to have sex with Wolverine? He’s surly and no fun at all. Let’s play along though:

Hugh Jackman

Without wanting to sound too camp, Hugh Jackman doesn’t struggle in the looks or body department.

But the Aussie actor still keeps his missus interested in the sack – by wearing his full Wolverine outfit, including the blades.

A dangerous business when it comes to tuning the radio upstairs, and I won’t even go downstairs.

And it’s just as well he has a few sheckles in his bank account, because their antics cost a fortune in ripped bed sheets.

Hugh’s wife Deborra-Lee Furness says the costume has some uses outside the bedroom too, including the kitchen, where it’s ideal for making salads.

Asked what it’s like to live with Hugh in full Wolverine mode, Deborra-Lee said: “Oh my God, it’s dreadful! Always with the claws. I’m like, ‘Mix the salad. Put them to use, come on!’”

Hugh interrupted: “The sheets we go through…” Let’s hope he pops the props in the dishwasher between jobs.

Hugh was also asked about his wife’s influence on his career and said he gives her all the credit.

He said: “I would not be a quarter of the man I am without her.”

And if you’re not careful with the claws, she’ll be lucky to be a quarter of a woman.

[From The Sun]

Well, I personally think that this story is a load of crap and just something that Hugh and Deb came up with to amuse themselves. Maybe they tried it once, but I don’t see how it could be a regular occurrence. More than likely, Hugh is still trying to project a romantic, Good Housekeeping image in order to rein in the female demographic for his movie, but this isn’t the way to do that. Let’s face it — sex with Wolverine would suck.

    Haha, that’s hot.

    • Shannon says:

      Totally HOT!! God his wife is so lucky.

    • Rux says:

      OMG I totally would! That is so freaking hot!

      Wolverine? Not sexy? Are you kidding….he exudes sexy masculine hottness.

    • Lishka says:

      Its sad how people keep talking shit about her being less attractive…women just age differently (not to mention she is a fair bit older than him!) but I wonder, when I am her age, even if my hubby is just 2 years older than me, will I be dumpy and old and my hubby is cyclist fit? Grrr, I would hate for others to think he’s just with me coz I’m some kind of beard or have them whispering how he could do so much better, *SMH*. Thats just wrong.

  2. SW says:

    If I was his wife I would want to hit wolverine. Wow….that’s kinda sexy :) I love them together, his wife seems all kinds of amazing.

    • Sannie says:

      Hot indeed! :)

    • JamTeezy says:

      I think his wife is really cool. Like, she’s probably a total badass.
      On a personal note… I dated a total dirtbag for two years because he looked like Wolverine. Regretted it, but not because of Wolvie. I would hit it, and hit it again and again til I died of stabby stabby claws.

  3. Alexandria says:

    His wife has horrible style! What’s up with the Geisha black-patent platforms? Yuck!

  4. blue marie says:

    hell, that’s a hot little rumor, who cares if it’s true.. crap, now I’m going to be thinking of the logistics of sex with Wolverine.. (which is what they were going for I assume)

    • Anna says:

      Anyone else concerned that is the claws are sharp enough to cut ‘salads and sheets’ he, um, could have hurt someone? Incl. himself?

    • j.eyre says:

      What is worrying me the most, is that when the story began, I found Hugh having sex hot. Then I got hotter thinking about them having sex with him in costume. But when Deb added the element of he left the bedroom and then made a salad without having to take the costume off – the practicality put me over the edge. Hot Australians being efficient – that’s all I need.

  5. vv says:

    I disagree. Sex with the Wolverine would be amazing. I will shamelessly admit I always thought The Wolverine was kinda hot…for a comic character lol

  6. hadleyb says:

    I guess I must be the only who thinks why wouldn’t they ever have sex with him in a cool character like Wolverine??

    I mean, I have had my DH dress up / role play a couple movie characters .. it’s not often but it can be fun.

    Wolverine is a bad boy, but does have a heart so … and with that body I’d demand it.

    I don’t know or really care if he’s gay. He does pretty decent movies, can sing/dance, act and seems like a non douchey movie star.

    Of course it may come out later he’s a big ahole like Mel Gibson or Bruce Willis, and really so many others but right now he seems like a decent dude.

  7. Lucinda says:

    At first I thought attention-seeking like you said. Then I started thinking about it and well….yeah, it’s pretty hot.

  8. Elodie says:

    Actually it’s not a load of crap, in fact it’s old news, he already said that joke or whatever tongue-in-cheek waaayyyyy back in his first Wolverine days when he shot to fame that he put the suit on to spice up their sex life… I remember it because I was crushing hard on him back then and was reading all his interviews and watching his Aussie films etc… by extension I recomment Erskineville Kings, Hugh is heartbreaking.

    • Kittypants says:

      Yep, I remember him saying this ages ago too. If I was his wife and he wanted to don the old Wolverine garb, I certainly wouldn’t complain.

  9. Nerd Alert says:

    Oh man if you think everyone likes the same things in bed you are sadly mistaken. I know a lot of people that would bang the Wolverine, and like it. And Edward Scissorhands! It’s just a little role-playing.

    Second, it sounds like the Sun took a jokey quote from Jackman and spun it into a sex story. If you look at the actual quotes, and not what they built up the story around it, it seems like he was just making a tongue-in-cheek joke.

  10. mia girl says:

    Seems like it was just two innocuous quotes about wearing the costume/being in character around the house and The Sun crafted a greater narrative.

    “The bed sheets we go through” sounds like a joke line Hugh through in there and the Sun turned it into “Oh no, Sex with Claws!!”

    • Diana says:

      Yeah, I don’t know if I’m just not reading it right but to me that sounded like a playful joke and I don’t know how anyone would think they were serious.

    • mata says:

      I thought it sounded like a joke, too. He made the joke and the Sun reporter saw a headline grabbing angle to run with.

  11. V4Real says:

    I freaking love Hugh Jackman but this is one of those things that makes you go hmmmm. With all the gay rumors could possibly talking about his sex life be a way to dispel those tales. As far as I know he has never discussed his sex life publicly before.

    • I Choose Me says:

      He’s not discussing it now. Read the actual quote again (this article’s headline is misleading). I mean c’mon I’ve read saucier banter between the CB ladies on Fassy and Cumberbatch threads.

      • V4Real says:

        Yes I read the entire article and even the little quirps that he supposedly made hasn’t been mentioned before. He hasn’t joked about sex with his wife in that manner before which makes people wonder is he now doing this to dispel the rumors.

        Talking about your sex life doesn’t mean you have to go into full details; sometimes it only takes a whisper of it which Hugh hasn’t done before.

  12. paige says:

    i think he is gay…i am a fan and mean no disrespect….i don’t think he acts on it..she seems cool…

  13. Sixer says:

    That just sounds like a funny conversation of the type commenters have in here. It doesn’t sound as though they actually mean it. If I had a choice of Hugh as Hugh or Hugh in cosplay, I’d go for Hugh as Hugh.

    • unmade_bed says:

      I know, why take such a silly, meaningless snippet of an interview and build a whole story about it?

  14. mommak918 says:

    Oh, Bedhead….Sex with Wolverine would be amazing! Lol

    He couldn’t use his hands but there are other things ;)

  15. E-v-E says:

    I have a pretty strong feeling movie sucks, but I love Hugh and he’s at his hottest as Wolverine, gay or not, so I’d hit it, claws and all. I don’t remember seeing him have much chemistry with female co-stars, like say, Ewan McGregor, but his wife has a very satisfied look on her face and no money can buy that :D

    • mercy says:

      I’m not sure about the movie, but I’ve seen some good early reviews for his performance in the latest Wolverine.

      He doesn’t have much chemistry with his female co-stars in the romcoms I’ve seen him in, but he’s always been a charmer in person so I’ll blame the writing. ;)

  16. Peanut says:

    I’d totally have sex with Wolverine.

  17. Itwillrain says:

    He may not be gay, but he’s probably a cheater….two different people on ONTD have told about friends who’ve banged him. Here’s the story about one of them (you can search for Jackman in the comments)

    • paige says:

      good PR move if he is gay…

    • mercy says:

      That place is a cesspool of “a friend of my cousin’s friend” tales. I really think the majority of the people who post that stuff are bored and looking for attention.

    • May May says:

      “Probably a cheater…” Based on what? Comments people made up on the Internet? You don’t honestly believe everything you read on the Internet, do you? Because if you do, I have this bridge… .

  18. Itwillrain says:

    …and they were talking about female friends…

  19. Ginger says:

    Bedhead I heartily disagree with you here. Wolverine and Phoenix were my fave characters in the X Men comic book series when I was younger. He’s the main reason (aside from yummy Fassy) that I watch the films. The thought of being with Wolverine reignites my pre teen crush on the character. Hugh is a good looking man but I don’t find him sexy unless he’s Wolverine. I think he and his wife are just being cheeky here but if there’s a grain of truth…well how fun!

  20. bubulle says:

    I think Hugh Jackman is one of the few genuinely nice celebs, that said he needs to stop trying to convince people he is not gay, just live your life and keep quiet.

  21. Sarah says:

    I’d have sex with Wolverine in a hot minute. LOL!

  22. Miss Melissa says:

    They are joking! I think they are hilarious.

    And I would hit is twice a day, three times on Sundays. Did you see the way he kissed Jean Gray in X2?

  23. Maria says:

    the old angelina would have loved the bloodshed during sex.

  24. bettyrose says:

    I think the jury is out on whether sex with Wolverine would suck. As a member of the jury, lemme try it out and get back to you.

  25. Emily C. says:

    Just because you wouldn’t like it, that doesn’t mean they don’t. People have differing tastes.

  26. Idreaminprincess says:

    I wish to god she would wear different shoes. Those platform wedges just bug the hell out of me. I don’t know why.

  27. Shelby says:

    “I would not be a quarter of the man I am without her.”

    Such a sweet thing to say about your wife. I really like this couple <3

  28. Nikki says:

    I’d so hit it, over and over. Wolverine is sex.

  29. tokeberry says:

    Something’s off here. These two have no chemistry- none.
    It doesn’t sound like a smart movie promotion, either.
    You’d think for a blockbuster series there would be something better.

  30. I Choose Me says:

    It just sounds like flirtatious banter to me. She made a joke about putting his claws to good use with the salad and he threw in the bon mot about the sheets. Don’t think he was serious.

    • Vesta says:

      Yeah that’s what I thought too, just a little bit joking…

      Hugh is a nice guy – it seems to me that his wife & kids love him and that is all I care about.

  31. Jennifer says:

    Ugh, like I want to picture Broomhilda doing the deed with Wolverine.

  32. Lemony says:

    I’ve thought about having sex with Wolverine loooooong before this article came out…….

  33. Meg says:

    sex doesn’t always have to be romantic and loving, sometimes a sense of urgency makes it really hot. especially when you’re with someone you’ve been with for quite sometime.
    Hugh is hot as hell, wolverine or not-i would not kick him out of my bed.

  34. MavenTheFirst says:

    Gah! The way he looks at her. Swoon. I want a husband like that.

  35. Jade says:

    Hugh Jackman says he has sex while dressed as Wolverine?

    um, wow, I think I was passed out for a few moments after reading that …..

  36. gg says:

    But “dressed as Wolverine” means what? Wolverine doesn’t really wear clothes. Just a pair of pants in the header pic.

  37. yoyo says:

    Is this from the same interview as the previous one where she was defending his straight status? Because I’m really starting to wonder: why is his wife being interviewed for his movie?! WTH? I’ve never seen this before. It’s really starting to sound kinda desperate:
    1-PLeae please please believe me I have sex with my wife, so much kinky sex, woohoo: So many times we go though loads of sheets!
    2-Go see my movie. Come on GO SEE MY MOVIE!!

    this PR tour is soooo awkward. I thought his le miz press tour was awkward but this takes the cake!

    • Lucrezia says:

      Waah? He wasn’t saying they have sex so often that they go through heaps of sheets. The joke was that his claws rip the sheets. It’s not even clear if he meant during sex … he could’ve just as easily meant he tears them in his sleep. (I know he says WE go through the sheets, but that could mean “we do it together”, or “we, as a household”.)

      Edit to add: And no, it’s not the same interview as the last set of quotes. I’m not sure where this came from. However, the original one was on Aussie TV. In Australia, Deb was originally the more famous of the two, so it’s not that weird for them to interview her if they can.

  38. Missfit says:

    omg, that is awesome… yes please! Hot, hot HOT!!! She is very lucky indeed. I named my son Logan after his Wolverine character. :)

  39. Lorna Jane says:

    For goodness sake you lot…..Australians possess a sense of humour!! It’s called “taking the piss”….of yourself, other people, life in general. It is laconic, fun, generally self deprecating and understood to be….”taking the piss”. Haha ha ha Lighten up!! They sound like a normal couple who are having a bit of repartee. Yay.

  40. Oyn says:

    I don’t think this couple is attention seeking at all.

  41. Moi says:

    I’m with Bettyrose, I would need to test it out and get back to you with a full report on the experience. :-) I’m so done with the “is he really gay?” debate. If he is, he is. But I chose to believe Hugh and Deb’s word that he is not. And either way, it’s not our fkn business. There is no denying that they adore each other. Let it alone.

  42. LovesGossip says:

    I don’t believe this ridiculous story for one second. The man is GAY! And apparently desperate if he’s having too come up with this BS story. He seems like he’s a nice guy and all but perhaps he should keep it zipped.

  43. pwal says:

    I’m sorry, but I don’t get Hugh Jackman’s appeal. On paper, he should, since he’s tall, dark-haired and attractive, but there’s no ‘oompf’, if you know what I mean.

    Clearly there are plenty who will disagree, but I never got it. And frankly, IMO, HJ’s ‘appeal’ has been shoved down our throats since Swordfish and frankly, it kinda feels like he’s believing the hype.

  44. They’ve made different versions of the claws for every movie. Some are actually sharp, some are blunt and some aren’t even metal but stiffened foam. He could very well have been wearing these for bedroom antics! But it does sound like Hugh and Deb are having a laugh at the expense of the journalists here. I doubt any of that has gone beyond maybe one turn in the sack with the full costume and some foam claws. If at all.

  45. Helvetica says:

    His wife is lucky as hell. Imagine waking up to that every single day. Giddy!

  46. Natalie says:

    It sounds like he and his wife were joking, to me.

  47. 4evaRedd says:

    This man is so not my type, I can’t find anything attractive about him much less sexy. As long as they are happily freakin’….

  48. mytbean says:

    Corelli – the soap opera where they met – first episode with them both. :)

  49. LT says:

    That exchange sounds very tongue in cheek – I think they both have a sense of humor and were being silly.

  50. VioletCrumble says:

    His wife was the famous one when they met and first worked together.

    As far as the “costume in bed” thing goes…. Sometimes, we Aussies have a warped sense of humour – taking the piss, if you will. Knowing how they like a joke, I think they were just having a laugh.

  51. Rangalover says:

    Omg are you being serious? As if they weren’t joking/teasing.
