How could anyone not fall in love with this man? Deborra describes his buffness as “the Body of Doom – but I like what’s inside”.

Deborra was not surprised in the least that Hugh was given the coveted title of People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2008, and told him upon learning of the honor:

“I could’ve told them that years ago!” And joked, “Obviously, Brad wasn’t available this year.”

Deborra Lee Furness Biography

As a biography, we do not know what her actual date of birth is, but she was born in 1960, so her age is around 47 or 48. She attended Methodist Ladies’ College in Melbourne, Australia, and graduated in 1973.

She met her hunky husband Hugh when they both co-starred on the Australian TV series, Correlli in 1995. She played the part of Louisa Correlli. Jackman has said that he was so taken by her when they met that after three months of dating he wanted to propose.

They ended up marrying in February 1996. Wed over 12 years, that’s a feat in itself in the celeb world!Together they adopted two children – Oscar Maximilian Jackman was born on May 15, 2000 and Ava Eliot Jackman was born on July 10, 2005. She is also the spokeswoman for NAAW (National Adoption Awareness Week).

She has appeared in TV and film, and in 2006 she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress by the Australian Film Institute for her portrayal of Jude in Jindabyne. Unfortunately she lost, but did win a Best Supporting Actress honor for the same film at the Film Critics Circle of Australia awards.

    I would like to say that the sexiest man alive in any year is Tom Chaplin from the band Keane. He is better looking and sexier than any other man on the planet.
