Beau swots up be­com­ing a true blue

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Sydney Confidential - With Jonathon Moran, Kar­lie Rutherford, Kris Crane & Ali­son Stephen­son

THE Amer­i­can fi­ance of Veron­i­cas singer Lisa Origliasso is cer­tainly do­ing his re­search on his adop­tive coun­try as he pre­pares to wed the singer and move Down Un­der later this year. Lo­gan

Huff­man (be­low with Lisa) told Con­fi­den­tial he’s study­ing up on cricket, rugby and even read­ing the Bri­tish Con­sti­tu­tion be­cause he be­lieves “if you’re mov­ing to a coun­try you must know the laws out of re­spect”.

“I’m learn­ing how to play cricket for the boys, and the girls,” the 28-year-old said. “Rugby I have an un­der­stand­ing of, it’s a lot of go, no stop­ping.

“I’m read­ing the English con­sti­tu­tion too, I know the Amer­i­can con­sti­tu­tion by heart. Cit­i­zens should know their rights. Your gov­ern­ment doesn’t give you rights, your rights are given to you by the di­vin­ity of be­ing hu­man, so I just want to know what this gov­ern­ment be­lieves are my rights given to me by di­vin­ity.”

Huff­man, Origliasso and her twin sis­ter Jess made an ap­pear­ance at the Ten Pieces fash­ion show from Ice­bergs owner Mau­rice Terzini and Lucy Hinck­fuss, held at the land­mark Bondi restau­rant yes­ter­day. The lovedup pair, who got en­gaged 18 months ago, are busy plan­ning their “rain­for­est” wed­ding later this year, with Huff­man’s fam­ily trav­el­ling from In­di­ana to Aus­tralia to at­tend the nup­tials. “I’m re­ally ex­cited, it’s go­ing to be lovely, we’ll have a good time out in the rain­for­est, that’s the plan,” he said. “I think we’re both just na­ture peo­ple at heart, we grow the ma­jor­ity of the food we eat in Cal­i­for­nia and we love plants and I think as a lit­tle boy I al­ways loved the jun­gle so it’s a per­fect place.” Origliasso was a lit­tle more coy on the wed­ding de­tail, say­ing the pair are still “lock­ing down the de­tails”. “It’s get­ting there, that’s why it’s great we’re back to­gether now so we can lock down some things,” she said. “It’s tough when you’re all over the place and our sched­ules are a lit­tle crazy.” Huff­man said he has fallen in love with Aus­tralia. “It’s mar­vel­lous, I love it very much. It’s a good coun­try full of good peo­ple. “It’s like the mid-west, hard work­ers, strong opin­ions, not flashy, just gets the job done right and that’s very sim­i­lar to the part of the US that I’m from. “The real heart of where stuff gets done is the mid­dle of the coun­try (in the States).”
