As the government talks about seizing her assets, did Ruth Madoff throw caution to the wind — and go on a shopping spree in New York City? The short answer is no, but the paparazzi mistook Hugh Jackman’s wife, the actress Deborra-Lee Furness, for 67-year-old Ruth Madoff on the streets of New York City yesterday. In a video posted on the gossip Web site TMZ, a paparazzo claims the mix-up had something to do with Furness’s sunglasses. Perhaps, it also had something to do with the glut of shopping bags the actress was toting.

Furness, right, is actually more than a decade younger than the well-preserved Mrs. Madoff.
