Jackman in one of his earlier interviews had said, "I think honesty and intimacy and making time. You can't just assume that things will just tick along. You have to make time," the movie star told Smooth Radio's Myleene Klass while promoting his film..And intimacy is about really sharing what you're going through, feelings and checking in with the other person, checking in what they need from you, checking in, how they're doing, checking and beyond."
"We have time together every morning, so we make sure as the day can get away from you. And sometimes in the evening, I'm sorry, that's not the best version of me by the evening. I'm tired, I want to check out. I run out of words for the day. They say men have 2,000 words a day," added Jackman.

What did fans say on Hugh Jackman's divorce?
A user wrote, "I'm shocked to hear Hugh Jackman & Deborra-lee Furness have split. Seriously, if what I perceived as the strongest tinsel town couple couldn't get to "until death us do part," what hope do mere mortals have? Stand by for all of the conspiracies of affairs, etc, to surface."
Another user wrote, "Their age difference finally caught up with them."
One more user wrote, "In other words, He’s way too good looking to be with her and he’s looking to upgrade"

It is pertinent to mention here that Hollywood has been witnessing heartbreaking divorces. Recently, Hollywood actor and pop star Joe Jonas announced his divorce with actress Sophie Turner. Joe ended his 4 years of marriage with Sophie amid various reports claiming that the Game of Thrones actress wanted to move back to England due to her 'partying' lifestyle. Apart from them, Britney Spears and Sam Asghari also filed for divorce amid allegations that the pop star cheated her husband with a staff in their house.
