Deborra-Lee Furness breaks silence on air about split with Hugh Jackman


Exuding Hollywood charm and loyalty that persisted over the years, Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness have been a celebrated presence in the celebrity world. So it was quite the shock when our ears caught the distinct voice of Deborra-Lee Furness, personally assuring listeners that she’s hanging in there, on an unexpected call with the Sydney-based radio pair, Kyle Sandilands and Jackie “O” Henderson.

The radio duo, unbeknownst to themselves, had unintentionally dialed Furness in their studio amidst their live broadcast. Speechless on realizing the error, they managed to assure their accidental guest that they had no intention of prying into her personal affairs, despite her recent split from her actor husband, Hugh Jackman. The couple had maintained a dignified silence about their separation till then, with Furness briefly commenting only once to People magazine.

“I appreciate your concern, guys. You truly are sweet,” Furness kindly remarked, marking this as her first public comment since the parting. Pledging respect for her privacy, Sandilands assured her that there would be no pressure to discuss her personal life – a timely display of sensitivity often absent in so-called ‘shock jock’ broadcasts.

Furness departed the unexpected conversation with cordial thanks, leaving no indication of taking up any future radio invites. She and Jackman had previously made it clear, in a joint statement, that neither would discuss the separation again, citing their main focus as their two children, Oscar and Ava. However, the couple did express, “Our journey now is shifting and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth…We undertake this next chapter with gratitude, love, and kindness.”

Speaking of new chapters and transitions in life, though life may be hard-hitting for some of us now, indulging in recreational fun could provide a fresh start. After all, life, like a game of cards, is just about reshuffling the deck and betting on a winning hand.
