Jude Law: ‘For 3 months my diet was whiskey, f-gs, ­hamburgers & ice cream’


Here are some photos of Jude Law at last night’s UK premiere of Dom Hemingway, that funny-looking gonzo movie where Jude plays a low-class gangster and Richard E. Grant plays his brother. I covered the first trailer in September, and most of you were super-excited about it. I’ll include the trailer again below (it’s NSFW-ish because of Jude’s bum).

Anyway, I think Jude looked okay at the premiere. I don’t care for his jacket/sweater (?), and I wish he would grow out his hair a bit more, but otherwise, he looks pretty good. Jude recently talked about the transformation he had to undertake to play Dom Hemingway:

Actor Jude Law has ­confessed that he finds making films dull, the Sunday People can report. Jude, 40, said: “I really love acting but it is hard work and sometimes can be quite boring. Genuinely. Making films can be quite boring. It should be something different every time you go to work and feel as if you are embarking on something new.”

He was speaking ahead of the premiere of comedy Dom Hemingway, in which he plays a wild drinking safe-cracker seeking what he is owed after a 12-year prison stretch. Law piled on weight to play Dom.

He said: “My character is a drunk who drank far too much and eats appalling food and smokes 40 fags a day. For three months my diet was whiskey, fags, hamburgers, ice cream and more ice cream. I didn’t feel well by the end.”

He added: “They cut my suits in by two inches all over so I looked as if I was bulging out of it like toothpaste from a tube. It had to be skin tight. I never weighed myself but it added a sagginess and bloated cheeks. I did not feel well at the end of the five months. By the end of the film I was so ready to quit fags and the drink.”

Serious actor Jude also feared he would fall flat on his face making his new comedy which also stars Richard E Grant. He said: “There were certain reservations. There was a fear factor as I knew it would be a lot to take on. There was a fear of I suppose failing as it was stretching a new muscle for me.”

Well, if you really need to put on weight and it doesn’t have to be muscle weight, you might as well eat a lot of ice cream and hamburgers and drink whatever you want. Isn’t it weird, though? I don’t think Jude looked bad with the extra weight. I mean, his Dom Hemingway has bad hair and he’s sort of gross, but all of that “extra weight” made Jude look kind of cuddly. I’m into it. Also – he’s talking about cigarettes.

I’m also including photos of Peter Capaldi (the new Doctor Who) and Richard Grant.

    I love all these guys. I want to hang out with them.

    I also like Jude’s jacket. At least it’s not red carpet uniform: I am bored with that, even if my list guys do rock their suits.

    Also: Jude was darling in a recent Shakespeare road trip film, Muse of Fire. Actually, the whole film was darling. You guys should watch it if you get a chance.

    I adore Richard E. Grant. One of the few films that never fails to pull me out of a bad mood is “Withnail & I”. He’s brilliant.

    I would hit it as hard as the St Jude’s Storm hit England. Love Jude.

  13. GeeMoney says:

    I would believe that eating hamburgers, ice cream and smoking has been his diet for longer than 3 months… he looked bad up in Side Effects.

    He’s a good actor and all… but he’s lost his looks a bit. I feel bad that his hairline is receeding as much as it is.

  14. serena says:

    A bit of a gross character.. I’m totally not into it, but Jude is always one of my favourites! Hope the movie will do well!

  23. DawnOfDagon says:

    I had commented earlier about my surprise that “f-gs” is censored. It’s just cigarettes, nothing to see here. Is the word in this context a really big issue in the US? Blimey…

  28. poopy pants says:

    why have you blocked out the ‘a’ in fags? Fags mean cigarettes in non- American English. It is not offensive – stupid yanks!
