I have said this before, but I worked with Hugh a couple of years ago on a project, and I didn't get a gay vibe from him at all. I wanted to catch something that would show me he was gay, but it just wasn't there. But then, I also have to say that he is so goofy and dorky (in a sweet way) that I ended up not finding him as intimidatingly attractive as I used to think he was. Just normal and average (of course with a killer body.)

Maybe he just wasn't into you, R8. If he wasn't attracted to you, he obviously wouldn't be flirting with you. And as for not exhibiting any gay stereotypes: 1) that's because they're stereotypes, and 2) he's AN ACTOR.

Hugh was smart, because here YOU are on a gay board blabbing how straight he is. See how that works? He had no idea who you were. (I don't care who the fuck your friends are)

So let's get this straight [R25]. Since you don't want to call it a "get-together" or "gathering" it's just "drinks" -- the fact that you say shit like "it surely would have come up" with his gay BFF and something would have slipped out just makes you seem more like a ludicrous queen than before. ALL CAPS doesn't make you seem more credible.
And the fact that you claim to have run this by Hugh's gay BFF within 15 minutes to get his confirmation that I'm an idiot just makes you look like a desperate troll, and PR hack.
To you and [R26], I did NOT say he was gay. Do the caps help?
I have no idea if he likes occasional dick. Or had a close relationship with Palermo or any other guy. I don't know if he's bi or gay.
But as a gay man who goes out for drinks with a mixed group of people, I don't feel a need to announce or chime in with "gay" references every time I'm out.
And for you to use that as some litmus test that he's not gay "at all" -- never sucked dick, never fooled around with a guy, never had a close relationship with one guy -- and therefore has NO trace of gayness leaves us with one conclusion.
Your still a fucking moron.

I have no view one way or the other about Jackman but there are equal stories about gayness and straightness surrounding him but I must say I find r8's post naive in the extreme.
How can you judge whether a person likes to get his groove on with guys just because he goes out and has drinks with you? Are you privy to his bedroom habits? Would he know if you chose to switchhit or go off with a chick? Would you even mention it?
I don't care if you're looking for 'vibes', some people, many people in fact, are just blank canvases when they go out in the company of others.
Did you think that because you were gay (I am assuming) there may be some sort of secret signal? At best, you can say you don't think he's gay based on what characteristics you've seen, which is fine, but it's not a certain, and the weird thing is there are others who argue as ferociously as you that he is exactly the opposite of your description to them in front of their friends.
The best course of action is to take ALL anon posts with a large pinch.

Memo to R40 and any other dope who thinks you know how "the gays" behave or think. We're not all alike.
There's "openly gay" .... Hugh's not that.
There's the Anderson Cooper/Jim Parsons kind of gay man - out with boyfriend but won't be out - Hugh's not that either.
There are plenty of gay men who beard and fuck men, no steady boyfriend, the closeted married gay men, and the "str8/straight" men in denial.
No one knows if Hugh is definitively somewhere in this last group. But when you have an openly gay PA rise to mega-producer with no production experience, where friendship rings, move in to the house, and have a wife you couldn't reproduce with, questions are legit. Especially when one of your buddies is Travolta.
My read on Hugh is that he does a lot of puffing up to cover up something, masculinity issues, sexuality issues, who knows. But he reeks of fakeness.

I spoke to one of his dressers (queer as a coot) who worked with Hugh for months. He was certain Hugh was straight. You have to remember Hugh started in the theatre world: he was a theatre star in Australia and London long before Hollywood knocked on his door. He's been totally surrounded by gay guys AND heterosexual luvvies from his early days like every other theatre star, and is totally cool about it. Darhling, darhling, kiss kiss.
As for his wife, yeah, she looks like a truck driver, but I know someone who knows her who says she's the most fabulous woman imaginable and a smart man would easily fall head over heels for her.

What did Vincent Gallo do? Watch them all they long from across the street? Gallo likes to stir shit. I would take anything he says with a grain of salt.
I have no idea what the deal is between Jackman and his wife. Have there never been any rumors from the people who knew him back then in Australia? Or maybe he was straight then and is bisexual now. I find it very odd that he would give such a great business opportunity to his personal assistant. That is NOT a common thing in Hollywood, even when personal assistants are highly appreciated by the people they work for. I mean, the PA was on the red carpet with Jackman and his wife. Highly unusual.

Not quite, R64.
Jackman married his wife while his career was taking off in Australia. Australians in the 90s were no more ready to anoint a guy with questionable sexuality than Hollywood was.
Jackman met his wife during his first big break, Corelli and they married only 3 years before he came to Hollywood.
The rumours about Hugh were strong enough to deny him the Bond role. They didn't come just from him playing Peter Allen.
Why do you think the rumors have been strong enough for him to have to address it?
Two words: John Palermo.
Everyone saw through that weird relationship for what it was. No PA is talented enough to be vaulted to the status of producer without any producing background.

I misunderstood R56's post. I assumed that if we are talking about a Hollywood star "a career taking off" means a career in Hollywood. It seems I was wrong.
That said, I also know someone who worked with Jackman in Australia and he was described to me as not being particularly ambitious (something Jackman himself admitted to in a recent interview). Which is another reason why I don't think of his marriage as something he did for the purpose of his career in Australia. But, what I know. I'm just guessing.

Hugh was a huge hit in 1995, the year before he got married. According to the archived newspapers he had starred in the theater production of Beauty and Beast to both critical and audience acclaim in February and was nominated for a "mo" award. He was claimed by Sydney Herald as the star of tomorrow and handpicked by Trevon Nonn for the lead in Sunset boulevard.
His show Corelli was played at the TV station later in the year, in the Fall. Approximately the same time he got engaged to his costar in that show. Got married in 1996 and first role in Hollywood came about in 1999 as a last minute replacement in X-men, where he met Bryan Singer and John Palermo, the latter being only 20 at the time and just out of high school.
|by Anonymous||reply 73||10/11/2011|
That's right, R64/R71.
He's not particularly ambitious.
He just aggressively pursed Hollywood roles over quality work for his wife and kids. Hollywood courted him, not the other way around, and these projects have just fallen in his lap - the lap he saves for his wife and kids. Because who could turn down money when you have a wife and kids to take care of?
And that's why he made an assistant his producer - one hired at age 21 by Bryan Singer, surely for his assisting skills, and whose only other production training was as assistant to Susan Sarandon and "uncredited" assistant to Mr. Jackman at the Tony Awards.
Who else would you name as Executive Producer to your next X-Men film but your P.A.? The one you share friendship rings with and ask to move in with you?

Jackman had the clout to name Palermo his executive producer on a major Hollywood film when he had never produced a thing. He made him his partner in his production company.

I saw Jackman's show this past weekend and he is just an incredible performer. He is charming, funny, gorgeous and I believe, gay. I did not think so until I saw this show. Reasons: He went out of his way in his storytelling to emphasize that "a happy wife is a happy life". Spoke about his wife in between clips and conversation of his upcoming shooting for "Wolverine" almost as if he kept reminding the audience that he was a "real man". He kept speaking with backstage crew members for updates on the Jets game scores. He inserted the word rugby as much as possible. He showed a pic of his son who looks like he's at least half black so obviously adopted or conceived with an Aborigini woman as a surrogate. In between, he performed dances and songs beautifully. It was an obvious contrast of his dual careers but he admitted to loving musical theater much more. The old saying that, "thou dost protests too much" applies here. When he pulled out the old Boy from Oz routine, I realized there wasn't much difference between Hugh performing as Hugh or as Peter Allen. That being said, he is a fabulous entertainer and I adore him.

@39 I don't know that anyone saw John Palermo living with him. I think a layout of his current apartment was publish and someone assumed based on that layout and the fact that John reportedly lived on the same grounds in a bungalow in L.A. that he must have shared the 1st floor in that apartment with Hugh.
However he may have changed the layout once they moved in. If Palermo was there, they'd be careful not to leave together as much as possible.
Vincent Gallo's observations was about a previous apartment which apparently also had big glass windows back when he was doing "Oz".... 2004? And he only said he couldn't believe some of the things he saw. But only mentioned the relationship between HJ and wife being messed-up. Nothing about a guy lover. Not to say there wasn't one.
My impression is he is gay. Like the other poster he talks about his family too much and it doesn't sound natural. Personally I find him so effeminate it's seems the most likely conclusion. Lastly straight men just don't go for Peter Allen's music.

Here's what Gallo said:
"Although he's not a fan of gossip, Gallo admits there's many things he could share with the world about Jackman's private life - especially the state of his marriage.
He explains, "When you look out the window what I see is just unbelievable. First of all him and his wife, I've never seen them even acknowledge (each other).
"It's as if one of them is invisible and the other one can't see them. They're like the most disjointed couple I've ever seen. They should put their shades down more often or something." "

Not to mention spending time with the children, which if he was living openly could include a boyfriend without needing the wife to join them.

But that was the interesting part of this trio. He didn't sit on the back burner. The three would attend events together.
For living arrangements, wife and kids had their own upstairs apartmment in the condo while Hugh and John were living in the downstairs apartment. Two housesholds, each on a different floor of the building.

Among Western countries only in North America, particularly in the US, is it considered unusual or "gay" for men to show friendship and non-sexual affection for one another.

I've met his wife and the description of her upthread is spot on. She is one of the most fabulous human beings on the planet, oozes confidence, sex appeal, smarts, wisdom, uncommon sense, is tons of fun and any man who likes to fuck women would be over the moon to have her for even one night. Jackman for sure is head over heels in love with her and loves to fuck her, is her best friend, etc. Now, that isn't to say he doesn't have sex with men also. But the above is true.

R158 ......that seems like a likely explanation especially after the most recent display. Hugh is laying it on thick now about being a straight family man. People always speculate wrong anyway.

He n Deb have a strong relationship not based on looks but on compatibility n shared values. She is a very amusing passionate lady.
