Hugh Jackman’s sexuality has come into play again and the Wolverine star once again has confirmed that he’s straight, but he’s also happy with being a “gay icon.”

He was asked about his “gay icon” status during a press conference in New Zealand after singing with a choir and announcing his upcoming tour.

Jackman believes the questions about his sexuality began in 2003 when he played the singer Peter Allen in A Boy From Oz.

During the press conference, he told the story of how his wife overheard two women who came to see the play debating on whether or not he was gay and how after a while she just yelled, “He’s not!”
