Despite their intense lip-locks onscreen in the new Baz Lurhmann film Australia, Hugh Jackman says Nicole Kidman was better friends with his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, before they worked together.

"I’ve known Nicole for a long time but to give you some context, when she first came to Hollywood, she lived with my wife," he revealed at a press conference in L.A. "Until she lived with Tom Cruise she was living with Deb, so they were very close friends, and still are very close friends"

As for those kissing scenes he shares with his fellow Aussie, Hugh's wife Deb has no reason to be jealous.

"The true answer to that is that is was not the toughest day at the office," he jokes, "however it’s never particularly comfortable making out with someone in front of 70 people. That’s not really something that turns me on."
