She added: ‘[Hugh’s] been gay for so many years, I was gay too when I did [the 1988 film] Shame. They were shocked when I got married.

‘It’s just wrong. It’s like someone saying to Elton John, “Oh he’s straight”. I’m sure he’d be p**sed!

‘And so what! What are we discussing here… Is he a vegetarian… Is he gay?’ 

Rumours surrounding Hugh’s sexuality have plagued the 51-year-old multi-talented actor for most of his career.

Hugh addressed the speculation in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter back in 2013, blaming the Internet. 

‘Just recently, it bugs her,’ he said of the online rumours, adding that Deborra-lee accesses the Internet more than he does.

‘She goes: “It’s big. It’s everywhere!”‘ Hugh continued.

Hugh and Deborra-lee have been married since 1996 after meeting on the set of the show, Correlli.
