(USA TODAY) Hugh Jackman has long been dogged by rumors about his sexuality, but now he's opening up on the impact it has had on his wife of nearly 17 years, actress Deborra-Lee Furness.

"Just recently, it bugs her," the Les Miserables actor tells The Hollywood Reporter. He blames the Internet, which she frequents more than he does. "She goes: 'It's big. It's everywhere!' "

But Jackman's X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner says there's no truth to the gossip. "I have seen him with Deborra since the beginning of their trip to Hollywood, and I've been on five movie sets with him and have never seen him stray, have never seen him eye anyone. I met him when he did Oklahoma! (at London's Royal National Theatre in 1999). He was genuine, hugely talented. He was in love with his wife that day and still is."

Jackman, 44, and Furness, 57, have two children together.
