He also established The Laughing Man Foundation which helps people in need gain access to education, healthcare and clean water.
Jackman is also a family man – he's been with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness since 1996 and they have two children together.

Jackman is clearly dedicated to his craft – but it's clear that family always comes first.
