Deborra-Lee Furness is moving on after three decades as Mrs. Hugh Jackman. 

“Change, transition, evolution is a little frightening, and we are all a bit scared of it. But I think it is probably our greatest gift,” Furness told The Daily Telegraph in an interview published Wednesday. 

Furness has her first acting role in eight years in the Australian film “Force of Nature: The Dry 2” with Eric Bana. 

“It’s kind of exciting,” Furness, who attended the premiere of the film in Sydney, told the outlet. “For me, it was a strong female ensemble cast, a great director. I love Eric (Bana). It was coming home to Australia to shoot in the wilds.
