He’s one of Hol­ly­wood’s most sought-after stars, but Hugh Jack­man, 50, cred­its his wife of 22 years, De­borra-Lee Fur­ness, 62, for all his suc­cess. “You be­lieved in me when I couldn’t,” a misty-eyed Hugh said as he ac­cepted the Santa Bar­bara In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val’s Kirk Dou­glas Award for Ex­cel­lence in Film on Nov. 19. “You’ve loved me with a pas­sion and a depth that I didn’t even know ex­isted. You have pushed and en­cour­aged me when I was scared to ven­ture out. You have loved me into lov­ing and like ev­ery­thing I do in my life, I share this with you. I love you.” The cou­ple, who met as ac­tors on an Aus­tralian TV se­ries in 1995, also have two chil­dren to­gether.

“There was a chem­istry,” Hugh says of meet­ing his wife-to-be in 1995. “I just knew 100 per­cent.”— Hugh
