The famous couple first met on the set of Aussie TV show Corelli back in 1995 when Hugh was just starting out in the industry and Deborra-Lee had an established career. The two started dating shortly after, and as Hugh often recalls in interviews, he knew she was the one almost instantly:

“I knew two weeks into meeting Deb that we were going to be together for the rest of our lives.”

Four months into their relationship, Hugh proposed and they married the following year, in 1996, at a church outside of Melbourne, Australia.

They are raising two children, Oscar and Ava, and 27 years on, remain one of Hollywood’s most beloved, talented and philanthropic couples.
