Hugh Jackman reveals secret to his happy marriage

Actor Hugh Jackman has said that he cherishes his relationship with wife Deborra-lee Furness which started before he became famous.

"One of the great pieces of fortune in my career, it started late, but that Deb and I were already set together, a team, madly in love, like literally before it all happened," Jackman told People Magazone.

"We can kind of see all the ups and downs for what they are. Our priority is our family, and were there for each other no matter what," he added.

The "Wolverine" star, 49, and Furness, 62, met on the set of the Australian drama "Correlli" in 1995. They have two kids together, Oscar, 17, and Ava, 12.

Jackman also said that he always reminds himself that he would not be at the place where he is today without his wife, and he makes sure to acknowledge her.

"Even at the Oscars, I walk out, I put my hand on my heart and I always look to Deb in the audience," he said.

"Straight afterwards, I will not see anybody in my dressing room until Deb's been in. Because that is my foundation, that is the rock, that is the foundation of our family, and therefore my life," he added.

The actor will next be seen in "The Greatest Showman", where he portrays the role of P T Barnum. The film also stars Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya.
