6. His wife can still surprise him.
Though she usually can't keep a secret, Hugh fondly remembers when his wife, Deborra, surprised him at the Tony Awards in 2012. He had no idea she would be onstage presenting an award honoring Hugh's Broadway career and humanitarian work. "It was amazing," Hugh says.

Though Deborra says she was terrified to go onstage, Hugh attests she's the charismatic one in the family. "I have become infinitely more confident, infinitely braver and more within myself from being with Deb," he says. "She trusts herself implicitly. She is fearless about everything she does in life. She doesn't care what other people think. It is a compulsion for her to act from her heart."
