Melbourne (ANI): Aussie actor Hugh Jackman has revealed that his wife Deborra-Lee Furness turned down the chance to party with Brit singer Mick Jagger, and chose to be with him instead, during their courting days. It happened in 1995 when he had invited Furness, who was starring alongside him in the ABC drama Correlli, to his house for a dinner party.
“She's very cool. I had a huge crush on her," the Courier Mail quoted Jackman as telling London's Mail. “I decided to have a dinner party and invite her with about 10 people. I made pumpkin soup, snapper and crepes suzette flambe -- that was my 'how to impress a girl' menu. But before the crepes, Deb's mobile phone rings. It's a very famous friend of hers who says, Deb, I'm outside Hugh's house in a limo with Mick Jagger and Mick says, Come down, let's party," he said.
Jackman tried to encourage Furness to take up the offer, but she refused and stayed put at his house. “Here's Mick Jagger outside my house on Beaconsfield Pde in Melbourne. I say, What are you doing here? Go with Mick," Jackman told Furness.
“But she gets on the phone, says, You tell Mick I'm having dinner with Hugh Jackman, and hangs up. I went, Wow, that's pretty cool. So I confessed my crush - and then she said she had a crush on me, too," he added.
