Jude Law has been called drop dead gorgeous, the sexiest new star to hit Hollywood in years. And when he walks in the room, it's easy to see it's no exaggeration. Wearing a brown suede top and jeans, he's slender and graceful, and exudes the golden boy charisma he brought to Dickie Greenleaf, the character he played to perfection in the hit film that made him an international star, Talented Mr. Ripley, The (1999).
But talented Jude Law isn't just a pretty face. In fact, he's more than happy to cover those perfect cheekbones and disguise those eyes under a thick layer of mud and crud for his latest film, Enemy at the Gates (2000). Based on the true events of the brutal Nazi siege of Stalingrad in WWII, the Jean-Jacques Annaud epic stars Law as real-life Russian sharpshooter and hero Vassili Zaitsev opposite Joseph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz. Here, Law talks about making the film, family life with his young kids and wife Sadie Frost, the pressures of fame and the joys of being a dad. He also talks about his plans to play Brian Epstein and reveals as much as he dare about his next big film, the ultra-secret Spielberg project A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (2001).
Is it true that you had quite a good time rolling around in the mud making Enemy at the Gates (2000)?
