When asked if there was a slogan he lived his life by, the action man admitted how important it is to prioritise his wife's happiness above all else.

"The most important one, is drummed into me everyday: happy wife, happy life. That's the slogan. We're about to celebrate our 20th (anniversary)," he beamed.

He previously recalled the moment he laid eyes on Deborra in a candid chat with U.S. talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in February.

"That was my first job, where I met her. She was the star I had this major crush on her. Everyone did," he smiled. "The whole crew had a crush on her and I was so embarrassed that I didn't talk to her for about a week."

Hugh eventually plucked up the courage to ask her out, and he's thankful he did.

"She's the greatest thing that ever happened to me," he added. "I'm kind of really grateful that I met her before anything kind of happened because everything that's happened in my career and on screen, off screen we've always done it together."
