Sadie Frost claims she's 'best of friends' with Jude

Sadie Frost has spoken out about her split with Jude Law - and says she's placing her children as her top priority.

The actress, who runs designer label FrostFrench with Jemima French, is planning to scale down her work schedule and has also hired a nanny.

She says that despite what the media have said about her and Jude, they remain the best of friends.

"You never know what hand of cards you're going to get," she told Red magazine.

"But whatever happens, you grow from your experience. I actually didn't want to talk about it, but at the moment my situation is that me and Jude are best friends."

"The media paints such a distorted picture about what is going on in our lives and it is just not true."

The mother-of-four goes on to say: "I think maybe it put me under a lot of stress having the babies so close together.

I don't know how I've managed to keep myself together and get on top of it all. But you just have to, don't you?

"At the moment I'm trying to get rid of a lot of what I have to do because of everything that has been happening in our lives recently, the children need to be my priority at the moment."

Talking about her life in the media spotlight, she adds: "There are always photographers everywhere we go. I just want to lead a normal life. It's stressful and boring."
