Hugh Jackman was joined by his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, as he picked up his Order of Australia medal.
The 50-year-old actor was joined by his wife Deborra-Lee Furness at a ceremony at the Government House in Melbourne, Australia, on Friday morning, where he was honoured in recognition for his service to the performing arts and the wider community, in particular as an advocate to eradicate poverty.
He was given the Companion of the Order, which is the highest of the four levels of the Order of Australia.
Hugh - who has children Oscar, 19, and Ava, 15, with his spouse - admitted the honour was "humbling" as he expressed his gratitude to both his wife and his "coaches and mentors" who have inspired him over the years.
He wrote on Instagram after the ceremony: "On this occasion, I am reminded that I share the incredible honor with my parents, my siblings, my friends and, especially, with Deb, Oscar and Ava. There are countless teachers, coaches and mentors who have taught and inspired me along the way. I will forever be in their debt.
