Law: I'm not young pretty thing

Jude Law says he's not a young heartthrob anymore

Jude Law has admitted it's nice not being a "young sort of pretty thing" any more.

The British heartthrob told New York Times' T magazine that he doesn't see himself as the hot young thing in Hollywood these days and is perfectly content with that.

He said: "In a weird way, it's kind of a relief to think, 'Oh, I know I'm not that young sort of pretty thing any more'. It's quite nice talking about what it was like to be the young pretty thing, rather than being it."

Jude, who is about to turn 40, said being older means the parts he gets offered are different these days.

"You are allowed to be an actor, and the parts you get are more interesting," he said.

The star recently played Karenin in the movie Anna Karenina, and revealed he enjoyed the challenge of playing the titular character's difficult husband.

He said: "It seemed to go against everything I have done, and it was fun to investigate the sides of a man that I hadn't done before in any way, shape or form."

You're better off walking away from a troublemaker who has lots of time to waste in the court system. Cut your losses and focus on making a fresh start. You have the ability to build a secure financial future.More
