The hunky 44-year-old tells Australia's 60 Minutes, "It's just ridiculous."

The actor, who has been married to Deborra-Lee Furness for 17 years, says, "It's, to me, not the most interesting things about a person, anyway."

His wife adds, "It's stupid and it's annoying because it's not true!"

The rumors intensified about 10 years ago when Hugh played gay singer/songwriter Peter Allen on Broadway's Boy From Oz.

The couple says if Hugh were gay he'd come out.
