A pal of the actor told New Idea magazine, “Finding love again is one of his biggest priorities.”

“Everyone expects Hugh will remarry fairly quickly. He’s such a soft-hearted person and is likely to fall for the first girl who catches his eye,” they shared.

Meanwhile, a source disclosed potential partners for Jackman. They said, “There’s everyone from Jennifer Aniston to Sofía Vergara, even Reese [Witherspoon] and Charlize [Theron].”
