When Amy Poehler and Will Arnett called it quits, I was totally bummed. When Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel were dunzo, I despaired. Don’t even get me started on Britney and Justin, whose demise I am still not over. With the devastating demise of Hollywood relationships, it’s easy to throw in the towel and give up all hopes of lifelong love. If the beautiful, talented and rich can’t make it work, what hope do the rest of us have?
That said, lasting celebrity romance does exist. And this Valentine’s Day, let’s see what Oprah dug up on what keeps some of Hollywood’s favorite couples going. She sat down to talk about the marriages of Beyonce and Jay Z, Tina Turner and Erwin Bach, Stephen Colbert and Evelyn McGee-Colbert, Magic and Cookie Johnson, and Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness. As the celebs talked about their ups and downs and what keeps their love alive, I may have teared up a little. At the end of the day, they’re just like the rest of us! [Huffington Post]
Today, the celebrity gossip gods have blessed us with a headline that sounds way too juicy to be true: “Hugh Jackman Wears His Wolverine Costume During Sex With His Wife.” So, is it true? Depends on your interpretation of an interview Hugh and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness did with The Sun. During the conversation, the reporter asked Deborra-Lee what it’s like to live with Hugh when he’s in “full Wolverine mode.” She responded, “Oh my God, it’s dreadful! Always with the claws. I’m like, ‘Mix the salad. Put them to use, come on!’” At which point Hugh chimed in with this saucy little comment: “The sheets we go through…” Keep reading »
This past weekend, Hugh Jackman was minding his own business, working out at his West Village gym when a crazy fan attacked him with her pubic hair.
Forty-seven-year-old Kathleen Thurston allegedly followed Jackman to the gym and managed to slip past security to throw an electric razor full of her pubes at him while screaming, “I love you!” (If a razor full of bush doesn’t show how much you care, I don’t know what does.) Keep reading »
Last night, Anne Hathaway and her vagina (covered up this time!) attended the Museum of the Moving Image tribute to Hugh Jackman. Jackman stars with Hathaway in the new film/musical sadness festival “Les Miserables,” and we tend to think that even given Hugh’s musical theater roots, he might have something snarky to say about Anne’s Nina Ricci dress. It’s making her look so … busom-y, and not necessarily in a good way. But what’s your take?
For anyone who thinks that musical theater enthusiasts are the opposite of tough, do I have a tale to tell you. On Monday, Hugh Jackman appeared on “WWE Raw.” During the event, pro wrestler Dolph Ziggler began taunting him, referring to him as Batman when, duh, he played Wolverine. So Hugh punched him. Hard. And apparently, messed up his jaw. “MRI scheduled for 1 p.m. … possible fractured jaw #thanksBatman,” Dolph tweeted the next day. “Hairline mandibular fracture. Guess i’ll put my chipotle in a blender for a few weeks.” This whole incident is reminiscent of the time Hugh rode the zipline on “Oprah” and whacked into a lighting rig in the process.

Yesterday, Oprah did an ode to Australia, filming live from the Sydney Opera House. Hugh Jackman was one of the episode’s guest stars and he had a high adrenaline entrance—zip lining from the top of the Opera House down to Oprah’s stage. While the stunt went great during rehearsals, while actually filming, Hugh hit the brakes just a little too late, and swung up into the lighting rig, hurting his right eye. Paramedics rushed on stage and Oprah yelled, “Cut!.”

Most of the time when celebrities break up, I’m like, bah, who cares? But this one made me sad. Director Darren Aronofsky and actress Rachel Weisz have broken up. The two were together for nine years and have a 4-year-old son, Henry Chance. They met in 2001, and worked together on “The Fountain,” which Aronofsky, whose other movies include “Pi” and “The Wrestler,” directed and starred Weisz and Hugh Jackman. The couple was engaged at the time of their split, but they had never married. Apparently, Aronofsky and Weisz were separated for several months, and now rumors are swirling that Weisz is involved with Daniel Craig, her costar in the upcoming “Dream House.” We hope that’s not true. Craig seems like a bit of a cad. [TMZ] Keep reading »
In this Japanese commercial for Lipton Iced Tea, the hottest wolverine ever, Hugh Jackman
, channels his inner Christopher Walken with a divine choreographed hotel dance number. Hot, funny and a good dancer: Jackman, you’re killing us. [Have You Seen This?

OK, to be fair, Hugh Jackman was riding along with his daughter. But still, I’m sick of seeing grown men scooting on the sidewalk and the street. Get a bike. The Razor craze is over. [NYC, 5/26/10] Keep reading »
