Hugh Jackman happily hits the red carpet alongside his wife Deborra-lee Furness while attending the 2018 Santa Barbara International Film Festival at The Ritz-Carlton Bacara on Monday (November 19) in Goleta, Calif.
Hugh hit the stage and teared up while talking about his wife Deborra, saying she taught him that life is “not defined” by highlight reels, like the ones shown throughout the night’s tribute.
“Life actually happens in between that. Life happens when the camera is not going,” Hugh expressed (via Variety). “You believed in me when I couldn’t. You’ve loved me with a passion and a depth that I didn’t even know existed — and I don’t think I felt that I deserved. You have pushed and encouraged me when I was scared to venture out. You have smiled me into smiling. You have sung me into singing. You have loved me into loving and like everything I do in my life, I share this with you. I love you.”
