The adorable duo first met on the set of the Australian TV drama Corelli, which happened to be Jackman’s “first job.”

“She was the star and I had this major crush on her,” he told Ellen DeGeneres. “Everyone did. 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.”
