Hugh Jackman's Wife, Deborra Lee-Furness, Inspires Him, Actor Says (VIDEO)

Hugh Jackman was just 26 years old when he met actress Deborra-Lee Furness. One year later, the couple tied the knot.

Today, Jackman credits his wife with his confidence and success as an actor. On Sunday's episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter," Jackman said, "I've become infinitely more confident, infinitely braver and more within myself, from being with Deb." He adds, "I've learned a lot from Deb." Watch the video to learn more about their marriage, and to hear how Furness has coped with her husband's rapid rise to stardom.

Jackman shared one of his secrets to a successful marriage with Good Housekeeping earlier this month, saying, "The bedrock of any relationship is to communicate, and Deb and I have always done that, discussing whatever's going on, good or bad."

The couple tied the knot seven months after getting engaged and have two adopted children together, Oscar, 12, and Ava, 7.
