Hugh Jackman celebrates 20th anniversary

Hugh Jackman celebrates 20th anniversary

Hugh Jackman may be one a heartthrob of Hollywood but he only has eyes for his wife. For his 20th anniversary, he celebrated in the Caribbean with the love of his life Deborra-Lee Furness. Flashing a smile with a scruffy bead and a white shirt, the now 49-year-old star took a selfie with his wife and the sunset in the background.

Hugh Jackman has constantly expressed how much he loves his wife. In fact, he has stated he falls more and more in love with her every day. "I have a terrific marriage, but unlike a lot of relationships where they ebb and flow, no matter what happens you fall deeper and deeper in love every day. It's kind of the best thing that can happen to you. It's thrilling."

He has also expressed what a great woman she is on many occasions. "I run into people, really powerful, big people, who say, 'Congrats to you, but your wife is really one of the most talented.' And every time I hear that, it reminds me of the sacrifice she's made, her selflessness, her love and what she's done for the kids ... We always made family a priority but I'm acutely aware, everyday, that actually, when it comes to sacrifices, Deb has shouldered most of those. In fact, I was telling her right now, 'You need to get back to work because you're just too good to waste that talent. Everyone needs to see it.'"

The wolverine star had the opportunity to unwind by a beachside bar in St. Barts with the backdrop of the ocean and palm trees. And he reflected this on his photo which he captioned as Our last night - topped off by this stunning sunset. Hugh Jackman had told the press he had been looking forward to celebrating his 20th anniversary and he joked that the motto he lives by is happy wife, happy life. In fact, his relationship advice is: "Your wife is always right. Very simple. I think I'm going to get it tattooed on my forehead."

‘It'll be just the two of us,' he said. ‘We love the kids but they can rack off and find something else to do for a week. We want to relive our honeymoon.'

During the holidays, the couple joined their billionaire friend Jim Clark, 72, and his wife Kristy Hinze, 36, aboard their boat Comanche. Hugh and Deborra-Lee posed for a photo with Jim and the boat's skipper Ken Read that reached the Internet.

The Aussie stars, who have two children together named Oscar and Ava, got married in 1996 a year after meeting on the set of Australian TV show Correlli.

In love as ever, Hugh shared a lovely photo from his wedding day to mark the couple's two decade-long marriage. The 20 year old photo in black-and-white shows a young Hugh smiling widely as he stands beside his beaming bride, with the caption: '20 years ago on this day.'

The star expressed his vision on marriage that shows how much he cares about family. "When you fall in love and you get married it's such a relief, he confessed. You're like, 'Oh, this feels so right and this woman is just so great and I love her.' And then you have a kid — it kind of just gets even bigger. And it's frustrating and it's tiring and all those things but your sense of, like, living life becomes so much bigger."

"The best part about being married is that feeling of being a team. All couples have ups and downs, so having someone you trust is priceless,' he said. "The activity of being a husband a father — those are roles, too, but underneath them is the spiritual center that connects us all, and that's what's most important. If you ask my wife, the biggest fault is my inability around the house. She says the only thing handy about me is that I'm close by. And, I have a terrible memory. I'm bad at saying no. I often double-book. There are a lot of things."



ANZAC (this year Wednesday, April 25 2018), was the name given to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps solders who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey on the morning of 25 April 2015 during the First World War.

However, Anzac Day is more than the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is actually the day in which the nation salutes all Australians who served and died in war and on operational service. The meaning of Anzac is still fundamental for Australians' sense of national identity.

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations and the contribution and suffering of all those who have served.

In Canberra the Australian War Memorial, in cooperation with the Returned and Services League of Australia ACT, will host the Dawn Service, National Ceremony and Last Post Ceremony.

One of the biggest ceremonies is held at Sydney's Martin Place, where dignitaries from Australia and New Zealand laid wreaths.

Anzac Day also draws thousands of Tasmania to pay their respects to the war heroes. The biggest crowds gather at the Cenotaph in Hobart and at Kingston Beach, south of the city, as well as the Cenotaph in Launceston.

RSL Tasmania President Robert Dick said he was glad to see Anzac services to so well attended: It goes to show how people are remembering those who served our country, he said. It's fantastic to see.

Thousands also gathered in the national capital of Australia, Camberra. There Australian War Memorial director Brendan Nelson said it was tempting to settle for the broad brushstrokes, headlines and shallow imagery of Australian history.

He said Australian comfortable lives bred easy indifference to the individual sacrifice made in their names. 102,700 Australians are named on the roll of honour. Like us each had only one life, one life to serve others and our nation. They chose us, he said.

Raise awareness for ovarian cancer

Raise awareness for ovarian cancer

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Witchery White Shirt Campaign in support of the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF). This year's campaign is amplified to the power of 10, celebrating more than $10 million raised so far, a line-up of 10 women signed up as the faces of the campaign, with ovarian cancer survivors and researchers joined by high proficle women including Jessica Rowe and Ksenija Lukich. They campaign also reminds us that a woman dies of the disease every 10 hours in Australia.

There is still no early detection test and no cure, but the answer to this will eventually come via research, which requires funds. To that end, Witchery has created 10 new white shirt designs, from which 100 per cent of gross proceeds will go to OCRF. That means every dollar you spend on the shirt (except GST) is donated to the OCRF, making the White Shirt Campaign one of the most generous corporate social responsibility programs of it's type.

"Less than 30% of women diagnosed with late stage ovarian cancer survive beyond five years, says OCRF chief executive Lucinda Nolan. We know that early screening programs such as the pap smear and a mammogram have resulted in almost 90% of women now survive a cervical or breast cancer diagnosis. The more money we raise from the sale of white shirts, means the more research we can fund over the next 12 months, and the more likely that we will change the statistics for women with ovarian cancer."

Within the shirts on offer, there are styles that will suit everyone, from classic oversized white cotton shirts to lace shirts, and more formal blouses with full sleeves, flared sleeves and vintage-inspired designs. Prices range from $99.95 to $199.95, at and in stores. You can also make a donation to the White Shirt Campaign at Wear your white shirt with pride on White Shirt Day, May 8 2018 and help women everywhere live free from the threat of ovarian cancer.
