You’d expect a guy like Hugh Jackman, with his accent/body/smile/being, to play it cool when it comes to romance. He admits, however, that he was a nervous wreck when he met his wife of 20 years, Deborra-Lee. On Ellen, the Wolverine star recounted how he tipsily confessed his feelings for her:

“I met her on my first job. She was the star. I was so embarrassed about it that I didn’t talk to her for a week. So, I had a dinner party, and invited her and about 20 other people over. I’d had a couple [drinks], and I said, ‘I’ve got a crush on you.'”

Good thing is, she admitted to having a crush on him, too. The rest is history. “She’s the greatest thing that has ever happened to me,” Jackman said, “I can honestly say that.”
