Jude Law

Last year was a pretty big one for Jude Law. He celebrated the birth of a new daughter, Sophia, he performed in the West End production of Hamlet, and he saw the release of his blockbuster film, Sherlock Holmes. While this year hasn’t been quite so eventful so far, he’s currently getting excited about his newest project, the movie Repo Men.

This action packed thriller, also co-starring Forrest Whitaker, is about what happens when your artificial organs are being repossessed. It’s sure to be as charming as it sounds. Regardless, we’re sure it will be a great thriller.

Getting involved in the theatre at the age of 12, Law was so serious about acting that he dropped out of school at the age of 17 to pursue it full time. This paid off, as he was honoured with the Laurence Olivier Outstanding Newcomer award, and was later honoured with a Theatre World Award and a Tony nomination for his work in Indiscretions. He came back to the stage last year in Hamlet, earning him a John and Wendy Terwin Award for best Shakespearean performance in 2009.

Breaking into the world of film, Law has been in iconic films such as The Talented Mr. Ripley, Road to Perdition, Cold Mountain and last year’s Sherlock Holmes. Throughout his career, he has won a BAFTA award, among others.

In his social life, Law is less consistent. He had three children with his ex-wife Sadie Frost before they divorced in 2003. Since then, he has had an on-again-off-again relationship with Sienna Miller, who was slightly turned off when Law was said to be cheating on her with the nanny. The birth of his daughter by his short-lived girlfriend Samantha Burke probably didn’t help either. Regardless, the couple was said to be on-again as recently as Christmas. Who knows, maybe it will last this time…

Repo Men hits cinemas on April 23rd.
