Australian actor Hugh Jackman said that his wife likes him to come home in costume, according to reports.

The X-Men star, who is married to actress Deborra-Lee Furness for 13 years, told the Daily Mirror: Deb loves the idea of me coming home in costume because it makes her feel as if she's having an affair in a good way.

When we met, I was cast as a prisoner with tattoos and she'd say, 'Don't take your tattoos off tonight' - but what works best with her is the stockbroker look.

Hugh returns as clawed superhero Wolverine in upcoming movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a prequel to the successful X-Men trilogy.

The actor agrees that Wolverine is sexy, adding: If I could lay claim to half of his coolness, that would be fantastic. But I think people would find him less sexy if they knew I have to spend 90 minutes in make-up to get that look.

The couple met while shooting of a TV series “Correlli” in 1995 and got married in April, 1996.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine will be released in theaters May 1.
