A body language expert has claimed that Hugh Jackman may have ‘moved on’ from wife Deborra-Lee Furness several months before they announced the end of their 27-year marriage.
Speaking to 7Life, Louise Mahler analysed footage and photos of the former couple at the Met Gala in May and called out one specific moment between the pair.
‘I’m going to speculate that he has left her because he’s looking at her quickly,’ she said.
‘He still loves her but he’s moving on,’ she continued.
‘And what I see from her is, “I get that you’re moving on, you b******, but I will allow this”.’

Mahler also believes that the couple ‘still love each other’, despite deciding to part ways.
Jackman and wife Furness shocked the world on Friday when they announced their decision to split after 27 years of marriage.
‘We have been blessed to share almost 3 decades together as husband and wife in a wonderful, loving marriage. Our journey now is shifting and we have decided to separate to pursue our individual growth,’ the couple said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE.
‘Our family has been and always will be our highest priority. We undertake this next chapter with gratitude, love, and kindness,’ it continued.
‘We greatly appreciate your understanding in respecting our privacy as our family navigates this transition in all of our lives.’

‘I think honesty and intimacy and making time [are the secret to a long and happy marriage]. You can’t just assume that things will just tick along okay. You have to make time,’ Hugh told Smooth Radio in February.
Deborra-Lee most recently played Jill Bailey alongside Eric Bana in Robert Connolly’s sequel Force of Nature: The Dry 2, which was released in Australian and New Zealand theaters on August 24.

Hugh has never been shy about speaking on his marriage, and praised Deborra-Lee when promoting his hit film The Greatest Showman in 2017.
In an interview, he called Deborra-Lee his ‘best friend’ and main source of support in both his career, and personal life.
Hugh said of his partner: ‘I’m married to the greatest woman alive. She’s amazing. We’re best friends, and we share everything. She’s smart.’
Talking about how they never spend longer than two weeks apart, he explained that it was because they wish to ‘share everything’ together.
He continued: ‘We always said we’d never spend more than 2 weeks apart. Sometimes life and work does get crazy.
‘But we met on my first job when she was already a big star, I was a nobody. So we have shared everything, all the ups and downs, and always will.’
It was only weeks after they began dating that Hugh asked Deborra-Lee to marry him, and the couple wed in 1996
