Hugh Jackman, exhausted with the constant speculation regarding his sexuality, is attempting to shut down the gay rumors at long last.

While Jackman has been able to largely avoid the chatter, his wife Deborra Jackman has had a harder time. “She goes: ‘It’s big. It’s everywhere!’” he told The Hollywood Reporter. He’s not the only one clearing the air on the matter either, as his X-Men costar Lauren Shuler Donner took the time to weigh in on the very real marriage between Jackman and his wife.

"I have seen him with Deborra since the beginning of their trip to Hollywood, and I've been on five movie sets with him and have never seen him stray, have never seen him eye anyone," Donner told THR. "I met him when he did Oklahoma! [at London's Royal National Theatre in 1999]. He was genuine, hugely talented. He was in love with his wife that day and still is."

Jackman is very much a family man, explaining that he told his agent that he wants to stay close to home in New York’s West Village for awhile so that he can spend more time with his wife and three children.

The Les Miserables actor will next be seen on the big screen in The Wolverine this summer. While he’s currently hard at work filming crime drama Prisoners with Jake Gyllenhall, he’s due to return to the theater stage in Houdini, an original musical written by Aaron Sorkin and composed by Stephen Schwartz set to come out next year.
