Hugh Jackman is NOT “quitting Hollywood,” despite an entirely fabricated report from one of this week’s tabloids. Gossip Cop can bust this rumor. We’re told there’s “no truth” to it.

According to OK!, the actor wants to retire from show business and move back to his native Australia along with wife Deborra-Lee Furness, and their children, Oscar and Ava. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid that Jackman “misses the normality” of life in Australia.

The alleged “insider” goes on to claim, “Hugh is nervous about the shift, but he’s a big enough star that he’s set for life no matter where he lives.” Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Jackman, and we’re told that the actor has absolutely no plans to quit acting. In fact, he has two big projects lined up that are both slated to shoot next year. Jackman is currently attached to star in The Greatest Showman on Earth, a biopic about P.T. Barnum, as well as another Wolverine sequel.

In fact, as Gossip Cop reported, the actor even revealed in a recent interview that he’d be open to starring in a future James Bond movie. But irrespective of Jackman’s busy schedule, which runs counter to the “quitting Hollywood”claim, Gossip Cop still checked in with a source close to the actor, who tells us there’s “no truth” to the tabloid’s report.
