HUGH Jackman's wife Deborra-Lee Furness has broken her silence on her shocking separation from the actor.
The actress, 67, spoke out after getting accidentally called by Australian radio hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie "O" Henderson live on Tuesday.
The duo were left gobsmacked when Deborra-Lee picked up the phone.
Kyle admitted: "We have actually called you by mistake, it's ridiculous. Seriously, this isn't a stitch-up.
"We didn't mean to actually call you. But now you're here, we won't go into it. We love you, we hope you're well."
Deborra-Lee responded: "Thank you guys, I really appreciate it. You're really sweet."
Acknowledging the public breakdown of her marriage, Kyle went on: "I just feel it's too soon. I don't want to get involved in anything."
He added: "But we love you, and you ring us when you want to chat."
Deborra-Lee replied graciously, "Thank you, guys. I really, really appreciate it," before hanging up.
Hugh, 54, and Deborra-Lee announced earlier this month that they are separating after 27 years of marriage.

"We have been blessed to share almost 3 decades together as husband and wife in a wonderful, loving marriage," they told People.
"Our journey now is shifting and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth.
"Our family has been and always will be our highest priority. We undertake this next chapter with gratitude, love, and kindness.
"We greatly appreciate your understanding in respecting our privacy as our family navigates this transition in all of our lives."
They concluded: "This is the sole statement either of us will make."
Hugh and Deborra-Lee share two children: son Oscar, 23, and daughter Ava, 18.
SIGNS OF TROUBLE?
The couple were photographed looking somber together just weeks before they announced their split.
They were spotted looking serious while sitting next to each other at the men's final of the Wimbledon tennis tournament in London, England.
Since announcing their split, Hugh has been seen out and about without his wedding ring.
The couple met on the set of the Australian TV show Correlli in 1995 and married a year later.
“Deb, she was a big star…I get picked up, and Deb is in the front seat of the car. I’ll never forget,” Hugh told People back in 2017.
He continued to describe how they met.
