About 10 years ago there were nonstop rumors about HJ and his "business partner" John Palermo. When they "broke up" it was big news. They were hiding in plain sight. If you search around you will find many photos of Hugh and John frolicking together on the beach, at events, etc. Anyone who says there have never been rumors or evidence either doesn't know about or remember John Palermo.

I think the rumors started because his wife was older, hefty and not attractive by the time he hit it big. And bio kids were presumably not on the table, a deal-killer for a lot of straight guys.
IIRC, she was still considered attractive when they met on the set of Australian TV series Corelli, and in Australia was a bigger name than he was.
Not sure if ABC iview can be accessed outside Australia, but check out the size of his arm in the pic for episode 3!

I’ve heard both reasons given by folks who think Jackman is really gay, though it’s usually gay men who offer up the “unattractive wife” theory and silly straight folks who think playing gay means you really are gay. Jackman is usually linked to his longtime assistant John Palermo with whom he and Jackman’s wife had started a production company. As evidence, folks frequently cite the fact that Jackman and Palermo reportedly exchanged rings engraved with the word unity, but according to Wikipedia, Furness also received a ring and it was to celebrate their company.
|by Anonymous||reply 52||September 18, 2023 7:23 PM|
John Palermo is 45 years old and started his illustrious career as an an Assistant to Bryan Singer, then pivoted to being Susan Sarandon's assistant for a few of her late 90's films. Then he hit paydirt as Hugh Jackman's incomparable assistant who swiftly and suddenly became a producer on many Jackman projects. I must say his ascent is legendary and nothing to sneeze at. This couldve only happened at Jackman's insistence.
Kind of reminds me of Steve Antin's reinvention in Hollywood as a Director and screenwriter after doing time as David Geffen's secret boyfriend.

The truth about what broke the marriage up is more mundane: he’s been having an affair with Sutton Foster, his “Music Man” co-star. It’s been very sexual, Jackman’s wife made a fuss about it at one point, insisting that the two only interact on stage, and they abided by that (her husband Ted Griffin waited things out, hoping it would end). But their attraction has apparently persisted seemingly ending both marriages.
Does this mean he isn’t gay? I guess so. It doesn’t prove he’s not bi. Maybe the wife didn’t mind affairs with men which were merely sex exercises, but she greatly resented a sexual and emotional affair with a woman, and a well known actress and personality at that.
Jackman is 55. Furness is 67. Foster is 48.

He's a local and people know him around here. There is not a single fucking whisper of anything gay in his pre-celebrity days but he was understandably popular with the girls.

R72, Hugh might have been less than open around you, your friends, and his college mates waaay before his fame. Acting, as it were. And handsome guys are usually "popular with the girls." But popularity doesn't mean heterosexuality.

I wasn't really onboard with Jackman as gay. There were possible signals, but whatever. Mostly it was his non stop oohing over his older wife that made me pause. Methinks the lady doth protest too much and all that. Now I keep seeing these planted stories online, likely from his PR team. Apparently he is writing a memoir that promises to reveal much, that he is going to be "honest with himself", and I just read that he is being very generous in dividing assets, on the condition that she sign an ironclad NDA. I though they were on such good terms. Well, it wont take long for it all to shake out.

As usual, I think posters are getting too hung up on the word gay. Mr. Bondi beach that insists Hugh is straight might want to consider the idea of bisexuality. Hugh could enjoy flirting with women, maybe fucking some, before slowly drifting towards men. It happens.
When people call him and many married closet cases gay, they usually mean open to same-sex action, or put another way, bisexual. Hugh is likely bisexual. We shouldn't have to get this technical on a gay website but here we are.
