London, Dec 19 (IANS) When People magazine named Hugh Jackman the Sexiest Man Alive this year, the actor says his wife Deborra-Lee Furness wasn’t sure whether he deserves the honour.The Australian star followed in the footsteps of Matt Damon and George Clooney in taking the annual accolade, with the celebrity magazine paying tribute to his talents.
Contactmusic.com reports him as saying: “The very first things Debs said was: ‘I knew it! I knew I’d marry the sexiest man alive!’
“The second was a genuine asking of the process, and how it’s chosen. ‘Is it readers, is it votes, is the editors?’ she asked. I said: ‘I think it’s the editors and a thinktank, and they get together, throw up photos and work out whose publicist they’re on good terms with, and they decide!’
“And she said: ‘So anyone could get it?’ I replied that they could. And she said: ‘And Brad Pitt didn’t get it?!’
Jackman’s next release is Baz Luhrmann’s new period drama “Australia”, about an English aristocrat (Nicole Kidman) who forms an unlikely partnership with a stoic cattle drover (Jackman) to save her sprawling outback ranch.
