Australian star Hugh Jackman does not shy away when it comes to professing his love for his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness.

The X-Men star, who played the famous character of Wolverine, is a famous in Hollywood but unlike most marriages in the industry, him and his wife have stood the test of time.

The couple are celebrating 24 years together and Hugh saw it as a perfect opportunity to declare his love for 64-year old Furness. "These 24 years have been the best of my life! And, as far as I can see, we keep getting better. I love you Debs with every fibre of my soul. Happy anniversary," the actor wrote on Instagram along with an adorable throwback photo.


Away from all the controversies and rumours, the couple's relationship has never been tabloid-friendly, and that is exactly what fans adore about them. The two got married in 1996, before Hugh became a Hollywood superstar.

Hugh met the love of his life back in 1995 on the set of the Australian series Correlli, in which Deborra was the lead actress. At the time Hugh was around 26 years old, and Furness was 39, but the age gap clealry could not stop him from falling in love with her.

In various interviews, Hugh has admitted that had a major crush on her. But back then he did not know that Deborra had a crush on him too. After they finally confessed their feelings for each other, the two dated for a while and then got married on April 11, 1996.
