Does Hugh Jackman Have a New 'Business Partner'

Frolicking at Bondi Beach with a young stud, his ancient wife nowhere to be seen.

Oh my! I want my own 'business partner', damnit!

What a skank!

The article says it's his "personal trainer". Hugh is working on his endurance skills

[quote] What is Palermo doing these days?

Feeling the void in his sloppy hole.

by Anonymousreply 609/27/2011

Palermo is a fool for leaving that HUNK of a man. If I ever had a guy like Hugh, I would hold on to him with both hands AND both legs. Oh, to be so lucky to sleep with Hugh Jackman.

And what's with Hugh's adopted son with the red checkered shirt and floppy hat? Does he gay? He looks like a girl.

by Anonymousreply 709/27/2011

Palermo got his own production company and still gets a chunk of the Wolverine franchise. I'd say he played it pretty good. Anyway you slice it, it's a big step up from being the guy who got Jackman his coffee and danish every morning during rehearsals for Boy From Oz.

remember Hugh's Tony speech:

I'd like to thank my wife (no emotion) and my producing partner John (begins to weep)---so odd

LOL at the one phot captioned "Muscle Mary" !

by Anonymousreply 1009/27/2011

Omg, R10, I can't believe that made it in print! Can Hugh sue for that little "mistake?"

by Anonymousreply 1109/27/2011

R10 I saw it too that's funny considering he is one!

by Anonymousreply 1209/27/2011

"Muscle Mary"-those British tabloids can be so cheeky!

That said,why doesn't Hugh share his 'personal'trainer with his wife? To paraphrase a DL post from years ago regarding Piers Brosnan's wife-"Bitch,you're married to HUGH JACKMAN,look the part!

by Anonymousreply 1309/27/2011

r9,When he won an Emmy years ago for hosting the Tonys he thank his "assistant" first before his wife. Which is what started everything...Palermo wasn't his business partner yet.

by Anonymousreply 1409/27/2011

Hugh can do SO much better than that nasty gold digging queen John Palermo. Whores like Palermo are a dime a dozen in Hollywood, and at least half of them are better looking.

Hugh should be saying good riddance to bad rubbish!

by Anonymousreply 1509/28/2011

How awkward to have his wife AND Palermo at the Emmy's. Weird.

by Anonymousreply 1609/28/2011

I'm sure it's just his trainer.

Hilarious caption. No way was that not deliberate.

Almost as naughty as the ones UK Tatler used to do. "Klein aids friend with a cigarette" etc.

Roids and facial wasting. Not hot

Hugh needs to stop using performance enhancing drugs for these action movies. He's much more attractive as a song and dance man on Broadway. First sign of a closeted gay celebrity is when they start trying to play the macho parts in films. Bruce, Tammy, Hugh, we know how it least Travolta has done Grease and Hairspray.

R20 is a dumbass.

It is lovely that they always gave "special thanks" to each other at the end of their movies/shows.

by Anonymousreply 2209/28/2011

R21 is a peculiar fellow who thinks that "dumbass" is a witty retort. Darling R21, R20 happens to be right. A lot of action stars have some homo-love in their past and present, most notably Ah-nuld. Bruce Willis was photographed dancing with men in a gay bar. Jean-Claude Van Damme was outed by an ex-wife (who he later went back to.) John Revolta has done action films, mostly as a villain. The list goes on, dear. Perhaps a gay message board is too much for you, snookums?

Awkward for whom? She knows she's a beard. She knew Palermo was Hugh's partner in bed.

by Anonymousreply 2409/28/2011

Here's the thing I've always found interesting; Palermo is openly gay. So how is it that he traipses along with Jackman, virtually everywhere he goes, wears his "partnership" ring, and yet the entertainment media just pretends not to notice. It says something interesting...that a closeted celebrity can do everything but blow his male companion on camera, and they will just go along with pretending he's straight. There have been articles on Palermo...I mean, he's a wunderkind. He went from being Jackman's "personal assistant" to his movie producing partner virtually overnight, having had no experience as a producer what-so-ever. He's THAT talented!! He always shows up at things with Jackman and his beard, curiously lacking a male date of his own. Yet everyone plays along. Curious.

Jackman certainly has a type facially, but he's moved on to big and butcher. Here are more pics of him frolicking gaily with his "trainer."

by Anonymousreply 2509/28/2011

So, where does Jackman's wife gets her sexy time, if its' not from Jackman? Are the beards supposed to be celibate while bearding?

by Anonymousreply 2609/28/2011

The wife looks like she's comfortable in a nice flannel shirt,a roughly worn out pair of blue jeans, and a pair of black boots, chopping wood for the nippy winter cold. I bet she's handy at fixing things around the house as well. And she's good with dogs. No matter how much they try to femme her up for events, I still always see the Bounty Paper Towel lumber jack.

by Anonymousreply 2709/28/2011

But these photos were set up, right? They're not candid paparazzi shots; Hugh Jackman knew perfectly well he and his buddy were being photographed, right?

by Anonymousreply 2809/28/2011

R26- my guess is that the handsome Mrs. Jackman is well known at Sapphic events down under. Pun intended.

by Anonymousreply 2909/28/2011

R28- he also brings Palermo to all the events. He almost seems to want the speculation, which I suspect he does. He knows that the entertainment media is "don't ask, don't tell", yet some part of him (ahem) seems to want to be out.

by Anonymousreply 3009/28/2011

Palermo must have had the eyeliner permanently tattooed on. He's never without it. He's very intense looking. Being a trust-worthy (self-loathing) escort who tells no tales has certainly paid off for him. He got a big pay-out from all the films he and Jackman "produced" together.

Recent interview about his Canadian one man shows:

"Silence is GOLDEN" in this case,r31.

It pays well to keep your legs open and your mouth shut in Hollywood!

by Anonymousreply 3409/28/2011

Hmm, R25, for a minute there on that link I thought it appeared that Liev Schreiber was also with them in the water. Now there's a pretty picture.

by Anonymousreply 3509/28/2011

R15, that's the most 'hide in plain sight' I've ever seen in my life.

by Anonymousreply 3609/28/2011

I saw Hugh & his wife on some cooking show with another couple and those two have ZERO chemistry. She seems pleasant enough, but they didn't look at each other the whole time and stood with the other couple in between them for the whole show.

by Anonymousreply 3709/28/2011

I doubt they've ever actually had sex. (Hugh and 'wife' De-bore-ah, that is).

by Anonymousreply 3809/28/2011

Wow. That trainer is super hot.

I work for producers in Hollywood and while nobody outright knows for sure - the assumption was Palermo and Jackman were pretty openly a couple. Even attending parent-student meetings at Jackman's children's schools, etc.

Nobody outright asks in Hollywood which is FRUSTRATING. hahaha.

by Anonymousreply 3909/28/2011

Some Hollywood types have no problem with having their b/f at their side. Joe Jonas is often photographed with his boyfriends. They don't hide from photographers.

by Anonymousreply 4009/28/2011

Hugh's body looks fantastic in those beach photos, but it's absolutely not true that he "looks a decade younger than his 42 years" -- at least, not in the face. His face is very handsome, looks his age.

by Anonymousreply 4109/28/2011

Well, it's Mike Ryan with him and he is indeed a high-profile trainer in Sydney. Not saying they cannot be lovers, though...

by Anonymousreply 4209/28/2011

R39, I work for a TV network and the executive ask outright if they don't know.

That said, one of the vps of programming wasn't the least shy when talking about Hugh.

"he's never going to come out, is he?"

by Anonymousreply 4309/28/2011

So does anyone know the real reason for the Jackman-Palermo break up? Was Palermo really a slutty whore who cheated on Hugh? That's the gossip I've heard, but I'd like to know the real story from any insiders here.

by Anonymousreply 4409/28/2011

Is he wearing a toupee?!

Palermo is now handling Gov. Rick Perry's bid for the Republican nomination for the Presidency.

by Anonymousreply 4609/28/2011

r44,Here's a blind item on it.

BillyMasters – Could it be that one of the most venerable relationships in Hollywood and points south has hit the skids? True enough – the partnership has been dissolved and while the public may focus on the star leaving the boardroom, the golden boy has been moved out of the bedroom. Or bedrooms in this case (the pitfalls of being so international). I’m told the lord of the rings was very direct about the split. No big song and dance. No other party involved (except the ever-present wife). The liaison had simply runs it’s course. It could have been ugly, but the youngster has been through this before. He’s a foxy fella and like most Silcilians, he’ll land on his feet (or his back).

by Anonymousreply 4709/28/2011

Wow, that was interesting, but I couldn't make heads or tails of that BI, R47.

Can anyone translate?

by Anonymousreply 4809/28/2011

Well, r48, lots of that pointed to Jackman and Palermo, but the last sentence nailed it.

[quote]He’s a foxy fella and like most Silcilians, he’ll land on his feet (or his back).

Palermo is in Sicily.

by Anonymousreply 4909/28/2011

r48,"Lord of the rings"= the infamous rings that John and Hugh wear for their partnership.

"No big song and dance"-Hugh hosted the Tonys and was in several productions in Broadway.

except the ever-present wife= Hugh Jackman’s wife

“the youngster has been through this before." John used to be an assistant for Bryan Singer

by Anonymousreply 5009/28/2011

Hugh's wife is so butch. After hearing her speak once their whole gay men/lesbian relationship became clear. She sounds like Jodie Foster.

by Anonymousreply 5109/28/2011

Hugh's wife isn't the plaid shirt type - when they're in NY, you can see her walking around the West Village in "workout" clothes although her body looks like it hasn't worked out in 20 years. Horrendous black capri pants, black t-shirt, black hoodie and sneakers.

by Anonymousreply 5209/28/2011

R48, you are as thick as a brick. There are clear allusions to Jackman and Palermo in EVERY sentence of that BI, starting with the first:

[quote] Hollywood and points south

Jackman is Australian.... that's way south of the US.

I'm usually clueless when it comes to blind items, but even I got this one.

by Anonymousreply 5409/29/2011

Jackman was at San Diego Comicon once, and I was amazed at how open he was about flirting with guys. AMAZED. And not inconspicuous "I'm comfortable around gay fans" flirting, I mean the real deal. Our group was mostly gay, but two of the friends with us were straight. After he walked away they were like, "You're right. He's gay."

I wonder if Hugh and James ever hooked up on the set of X-Men? They would make a very hot couple!

by Anonymousreply 6010/02/2011

I'm convinced that someone at the dailymail reads DL! I posted this same question about why Hugh's wife does not seem to share his workout enthusiasm and a few days later the mail does an article on the same thing!

by Anonymousreply 6110/02/2011

It was just an assumption that he and Palermo broke up. They probably decided to keep a very low profile because the gossip created too much pressure. This is from March 21, 2012. I couldn't access the other Jackman/Palermo threads so if someone wants to cut and paste to item below...

"Dear Ted: At a wonderful dinner last night with a great friend we realized we both find Hugh Jackman a **** handsome man. I'm happily married, but I was wondering, might Hugh ever be interested in my friend? She's a lovely, highly intelligent redhead with a great sense of fun. What does your insider sense tell you? One can hope. —Stephew02

Dear Home Cooking: Only that Hugh's wife—not to mention his very hands-on business partner who controls every part of Hugh's life that the wife doesn't already cover—might have a problem with your plan."

by Anonymousreply 6203/28/2012

Is Jackman still with Palermo?

by Anonymousreply 6311/12/2012

no, Palermo was dumped (business wise and personally)
