Television presenter Angela Bishop wrote, “Happy anniversary to two brilliant humans ❤️❤️,” and a fan shared, “Happy anniversary to you and “my Debs” 😍❤️👏.”

Hugh and Deborra-Lee met on the set of the Aussie television show Correlli in 1995.

It was the actor’s first job after leaving drama school, and at the time, Deborra-Lee had already solidified her career.

During an appearance on the podcast Aussies in Hollywood, the former Wolverine star spoke about how his wife tried to break up with him at the beginning of their relationship, but for him their connection was obvious.

“I knew very early. I knew before Deb knew, even when she tried to break up with me, I knew,” he told the host Jenny Cooney.

“I managed to talk her out of it, thank God. I’m a very indecisive person… Deb really knows this about me. I can count on one hand the amount of times in my life anything has felt that clear to me.”

Hugh proves he’s a one in a million-husband time and time again on his Instagram.

In January, he celebrated his wife being named Officer of the Order of Australia by proclaiming, “Her heart is as large as our great country.”
