Hugh Jackman is one of those actors that somehow manages to look better with age. Named 2008's "Sexiest Man Alive," Jackman's smolder and signature ripped physique has hardly buckled since he bulked up for his now role as Wolverine in the X-Men films. Since he's one of America's sexiest men alive, many are insatiably curious about what makes one of the most swoon-worthy men in Hollywood swoon himself. The actor has spent decades married to Deborra-Lee Furness. While not all press about the couple has been positive, they assert their marriage is stronger than ever with the help of a rambunctious and creative sex life. Apologies to anyone thinking they have a chance at dating Jackman, but he is a devoted family man. And it doesn't appear his behind-closed-doors antics between him and his wife have slowed down in the slightest. 

Despite all that, your secret obsession with Jackman and his eclectic array of heartthrob roles is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, Jackman and his wife have been incredibly open about their sexual appetites. Countless interviews with the couple have revealed an exorbitant amount of NSFW details about Jackman's sexual preferences, fetishes, and even an affinity for role playing.

Although Jackman doesn't seem to have a problem shedding his clothes for a steamy scene, he does struggle to shed his character's persona when he comes home at night. And his wife is more than happy to have Jackman bring Wolverine to life in the bedroom. If you're curious about what other shenanigans make up Jackman's sex life, you've come to the right place.

    His Sense of Humor Is "Wildly Inappropriate"


    Amanda Seyfried shared that Jackman's humor was "wildly inappropriate" while on the Les Misérables set. Seyfried discussed how the two made sex jokes the entire time they starred opposite one another. She said, "We sexualized everything as much as we could. It was really funny, the moments we could find. It's like every movie has another version. another satirical version of itself." This comes as no surprise considering Jackman cracks up at the drop of even the simplest sexual innuendo.

    He Dresses Up as a Stockbroker for His Wife

    Adding another role to the many Jackman privately performs for his wife. Furness sometimes requests that he dress up as a stockbroker. According to Furness, she has "always [said she'd] marry somebody sensible, like a stockbroker. So he dresses up for that fantasy for [her] occasionally." Apparently, Furness believed that she would never marry an actor. Obviously unable to resist Jackman's charms, she ended in a marriage she never anticipated. But at least she gets some "sensible" foreplay in every so often with Jackman the Stockbroker. Jackman added,"If  I want it to be a great night out, I'll wear a suit...and I'll start talking about stocks and bonds. Then I know I'm going to get lucky."

    Jackman's marriage to Deborra-Lee Furness has always been a talking point for the Hollywood media. Jackman is 13 years younger than his wife, and the two have consistently pushed back against the narrative that age matters. Furness has even responded to the frequent portrayal of her as "lucky" to be married to such a powerful sex symbol. In an interview with Australia's Women's Weekly, Furness said she is tired of being called lucky. She said, "That to me is a putdown. [It is] like you 're suggesting I won the chook raffle. I think we create our own destiny." Furness' looks have been an easy target for tabloids, as she is not considered as traditionally beautiful as her younger husband. But despite their age differences, Jackman and Furness have retained a strong marriage.

    During an interview with Town & Country magazine, Deborra-Lee Furness discussed how Jackman's acting career has made their life in the bedroom very exciting. According to her, his different looks make her feel like she's sleeping with someone new every night. She said, "I like him all ways: chubby, muscly, skinny. It's like I'm always having affairs. I like him best clean shaven." It's a good thing Deborra doesn't mind Jackman's variety of looks, because his beard is probably the one thing that changes the least in his roles.

    In a Q&A with Women's Health, the interviewer probed Jackman about just what gets his motor running. During the sit down, Jackman was asked, "A woman looks hottest wearing what?" His answer: "I'm a big fan of summer clothing. Like when you've been to the beach all day and you come back and go out at night. To me, that's sexy." The answer hardly comes as a surprise from the Australian actor, who grew up in sunny Sydney and has remained a beach bum ever since.

    Despite most definitely being a sex symbol, Hugh Jackman wholeheartedly claims he is not a sex symbol. He said, "I've never believed the sex symbol thing. When I was 18 no one said: 'Whoa, he's the sexiest man alive.' Why doesn't that happen when you really need it, like in your twenties, not when you've been married for nearly 20 years?" As much as he denies it, Jackman won't be escaping his sex symbol status any time soon.
