Forest Whitaker admires the way Jude Law can look good in casual clothing and a cap.
The 52-year-old actor always looks dapper in suits on the red carpet, most recently to promote his latest movie The Butler.
"Jude Law dresses really well. Every time I see him, even when he's casual and with his cap, he looks good," he told gq-magazine.co.uk.
As Cecil Gaines in The Butler, the actor wears a great deal of sharp suits and black bow ties.
He revealed his top tip for looking good in real life.
"I think I like to have something that has a little bit of life, a warm quality. Something that gives a little bit of a breath of your other experiences, something personal that has age to it..." he mused.
This is a little like his character, who ends up wearing a tie pin from Lyndon B. Johnson and a tie gifted to him by John F. Kennedy.
Forest let fans in on his preparation for the scene.
"That scene was one of the first things I did some research on, because there are photos of Eugene Allen [the butler who inspired the film] putting on his suit, so everything I'm doing was part of how I was working out the part - putting on the tie and the suit. It was from Eugene Allen really doing it," he explained.
