The actor says calls his wife the inspiration behind his successful career.
“I’ve become infinitely more confident, infinitely braver and more within myself, from being with Deb,” he says on Sunday’s episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter.
“I’ve learned a lot from Deb,” he adds.
Jackman also credits communication as the secret to his happy marriage.
“The bedrock of any relationship is to communicate, and Deb and I have always done that, discussing whatever’s going on, good or bad,” he shared in with Good Housekeeping earlier this month.
Hugh and his wife Deborra met 17 years ago and have two children, Oscar, 12, and Ava, 7.
