Who is dating jude law
'Yeah, and I only feel like I’m getting into my flow now,’ Law says.
'Like I’ve only just scratched the surface of what I can do.’ It is a cold, snowy day in London and Law has walked – with only an overcoat and an oversized cashmere beanie hat for anonymity – from his home around the corner to the low-key cafe in which we meet.
Unfortunately for Law, this has often meant that the public has overlooked his professional achievements during the past decade – 23 further films, not to mention a critically acclaimed return to the stage (for which he was nominated for two Olivier Awards and a Tony Award).
He has also used his public profile to positive effect with his charitable work.
'He also loves to immerse himself in interesting subjects because he is curious about everything.
One of my favourite things about Jude is that he’s not too cool to get excited about something.’ Speak to anyone who knows Law and they will attest to his energy, his determination to work harder, learn more, live life.
Shortly before he died, Minghella summed up what he believed to have been the biggest stumbling block to the young actor’s credibility: his extraordinary good looks.
'Jude is a beautiful boy with the mind of a man,’ he said.
After divorcing Frost in 2003, he embarked on a scandal-filled on-off-on-off engagement to Sienna Miller (they finally split up in 2011) and became a father for the fourth time in 2009 when a daughter, Sophia, was born as a result of a short-lived relationship with the American model Samantha Burke.
In 1999, aged 24, he was nominated for an Academy Award for his performance as Dickie Greenleaf in Anthony Minghella’s The Talented Mr Ripley.
By the time he was 30, Law had three children and 17 films to his name and was widely considered to be one of the most bankable film stars in the world.
'And I feel like I can move forward now, propelled by everything that has gone before. ’ On the inside of Law’s right forearm is tattooed a cluster of ants, a homage to Anthony Minghella, his great friend and mentor.
The pair worked together three times – on The Talented Mr Ripley, Cold Mountain and Breaking and Entering – and Minghella was a tireless ambassador for Law’s talent.
