Even though they've been together for almost two decades, it's refreshing to see that this particular A-list couple haven't gotten sick of one another – indeed, it seems that after all this time, Hugh Jackman is still mad in love with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness.

Appearing on Ellen to promote his latest film, Eddie The Eagle, the 47-year-old actor couldn't hold back from talking about his wife, gushing:

"She's the greatest thing that ever happened to me and it gets better and better."

He added:

"I'm kind of really grateful that I met [her] before anything kind of happened because everything that's happened in my career and on screen, off screen - we've always done it together."

Hugh also recalled the time when he first met her on his first job, revealing that he had a massive crush on her for ages before they actually got together.

Harking back to his time working on Correlli, he admitted:

"The whole crew had a crush on her and I was so embarrassed by that - I didn't talk to her for about a week. When I realized, I didn't talk to her. About a week later, I go, "This is silly." I had a dinner party and I invited her over and about 10 other people. And she said, "What's the matter, have I annoyed you? You're not talking to me anymore. What have I done wrong?" All the sudden I was like - I had a couple - and I said, "Look, I got a crush on you. I'll get over it."

Thankfully, Deborra-Lee admitted she was into him too and when they both realized, the rest was history. The loved-up couple married back in 1996 and in April, they will be celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary.

Before that though, Hugh is going to be busy out and about promoting Eddie The Eagle, a sports drama that sees him step in the role of Bronson Perry, the coach of a British ski jumper. Here's the trailer:
