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."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

This isn't a good time to gamble. Even if an investment seems like a sure thing, it could undermine your financial security. Keep your money safe in the bank. If a loved one is clamouring to make a big purchase, sit down together and review your bank account. Once your partner sees the truth of the situation, they'll feel less compelled to splash out on luxuries. This shortage will be temporary, as long as you exercise restraint during lean times. Getting into serious debt will make a tough situation worse.More
