The show Rick & Morty, recently, had already faced many issues during its production and now came in a mistimed joke that seems to be a jab at Hugh Jackman’s marriage

“The best bloody day of my life”: Hugh Jackman’s Rick & Morty Joke Had the World’s Most Awkward Timing After Taking a Jab At His Marriage

SUMMARY

The latest season of the animated show Rick & Morty featured Hugh Jackman as a guest star.
A joke made in the episode seems to be horribly mistimed after Jackman announced that he had separated from his wife.


Jackman was with his wife Deborra Lee-Furness for twenty-seven years.

Hugh Jackman is no stranger to doing voice acting. The actor has given his voice to many successful animated features such as Rise of the Guardians, Happy Feet, and Flushed Away. The Wolverine actor has also appeared in multiple cameo roles, including Free Guy.

The actor was recently seen in the first episode of the seventh season of the animated series Rick & Morty. The episode saw Jackman appear as an exaggerated version of himself. While the show is known for its self-aware humor, one scene in the episode may be one of its most mistimed jokes due to its reference to Jackman’s recent divorce.

Did Rick & Morty Take A Jab At Hugh Jackman’s Marriage?

The seventh season of Rick and Morty has faced a lot of troubles and obstacles during its production. The series lost its primary voice actor and co-creator Justin Roiland, after he was fired when he was charged with domestic abuse. The makers had to find voice actors who would be able to reenact Roiland’s signature style.

Roiland voiced both the lead characters Rick and Morty in the show and hence the makers cast two unknown voice actors to perform the role. The season premiered earlier this week and was the first episode to not feature Roiland. The show also featured Hugh Jackman in a voice cameo, playing an exaggerated version of himself.

In the episode, there is reportedly a scene that seemingly takes a jab at Hugh Jackman’s marriage. The episode features the character ‘Mr. Poopybutthole’, who is apparently going through a divorce. There is a scene that reportedly shows Jackman looking at a picture of him and his then-wife Deborra Lee-Furness.

Jackman reportedly exclaims, “The best bloody day of my life,” seemingly in the photo, which is then revealed to be him saying it to his Tony Award. Though the season was probably created and animated much earlier and was just a joke that was mistimed, it makes the joke awkward as Jackman recently announced that he and Lee-Furness had separated after twenty-seven years of marriage.

The announcement of actors Hugh Jackman and Deborra Lee-Furness’ separation after twenty-seven years of marriage came as a shock to everyone. The couple announced their separation earlier this year, saying that their journeys of growth were now separate.

The actors had been together since 1995 when they met on the sets of the Australian TV show Correlli. Lee-Furness was already an established actress while Jackman was still an upcoming star, who had transitioned from the stage to the screen.

In a joint statement to People magazine, the couple said,
“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. Our family has been and always will be our highest priority. We undertake this next chapter with gratitude, love, and kindness.”
The pair stated that this would be the only statement either of them would make. It was reported that the couple had been facing issues since the COVID-19 pandemic.
