Hugh Jackman and Angelina Jolie won’t be co-starring together anytime soon, if his wife Deborra-Lee Furness has it her way. During an interview on Monday with the Australian “Today” show, Furness named Jolie as the one actress who her husband is “not allowed to work with” when the topic of Jackman kissing other women on movie sets came up. Watch the video below!

Jackman and Furness, who have been married nearly 20 years, met on the set of the Australian TV series “Correlli” in 1995. Jackman had a supporting role and was an unknown at the time, while Furness was already famous in Australia. But since the X-Men star has gone on to Hollywood superstardom and gets cast as the love interest to various actresses, “I’ve told his agent he’s not allowed to work with Angelina [Jolie],” said Furness while sitting next to Jackman. “I’m sure she’s very nice,” she added.

Furness later noted she was “just kidding,” and that she and Jackman have a strong enough marriage to overcome any fake romance that may go on between him and a leading lady on a movie set. “It just goes to show [that] if you get it right, if you pick the right partner, then you traverse all those travails and challenges,” she said. “We have never been apart for more than two weeks,” noted Jackman.
