MELBOURNE - Actor Hugh Jackman’s actress wife Deborra-Lee Furness has become the first star to be celebrated on ‘This is Your Life’.
Eddie McGuire is the host of the rebooted version of the show that celebrates the lives of famous Australians, and Furness has a look of surprise and confusion on her face when he tells her she is the star of the first show.
Stars who paid tribute to her included Jerry Seinfeld, Naomi Watts, Sigrid Thornton and Nicole Kidman.
“She (Furness) is not a woman who is overwhelmed or thrown for a loop by anything in this world,” News.com.au quoted Seinfeld as saying.
Furness’ energy and generosity of spirit - and legendary parties - are central memories of most of the celebrities.
Both she and Jackman relived their wedding by dancing to ‘All the Way’, sung by Tom Burlinson and Kate Ceberano.
“I’m not good at keeping secrets, but she has no idea,” Jackman added of his wife. (ANI)
