Jude visited Ellen for her big birthday show yesterday. Jude said it had been nine years since he was last on the show and Ellen couldn’t believe it. Both agreed that it didn’t seem like that long.
Jude had a gift for Ellen: they were a pair of very nice looking Doc Martins. Ellen said she loved them.
Jude just turned 40 in December and Ellen asked him how he felt about it. Jude said that he thought whenever there is a zero in your age, it’s a good time to look back and think about how you spent the last 10 years and how you’d like to spend the next 10. He said he didn’t want to make the same mistakes and looked forward to the kind of work he’ll get in his forties. Ellen said she thought everything is better as you grow older and get more settled into your life.
Jude said his new movie ‘Side Effects’ with Rooney Mara was very slick and stylish with a fantastic twist. Jude plays a psychiatrist from the United Kingdom who is treating Rooney Mara’s character for anxiety. Ellen asked Jude if prescription medications were as prevalent in the UK as they are here in the States. Law said that he’d hate to perpetuate the stereotype of people from the UK being uptight, but he said that no one there really talks about seeing psychiatrists or taking drugs for anxiety and depression.
The last time Jude was on Ellen, Ellen gave him a bicycle. Because he has four kids now, Ellen decided to give him an even bigger bicycle, this time with more seating. It was a five person bicycle, shaped like a golf cart, with two steering wheels in the front. Ellen and Jude drove it all around the studio, riding past the confused gift shop employees, who Jude waved at. Check it out!
Jude Law covers T Magazine, with a feature that takes great pains to continue that “now that the actor isn’t as good looking, they can take on more serious roles” thing. I’m sure we all have no problems in disagree.
This month, Law turns the interesting age of 40, and in his most recent film, an adaptation of “Anna Karenina” directed by Joe Wright, he plays Karenin, Anna’s morally severe, emotionally barren, piously dutiful, highly controlling pain in the neck of a husband — all Old Testament, no sex appeal. A few years ago, Law would have been everyone’s choice as Vronsky, Anna’s lover, the story’s romantic hero and shallow eye candy, but those days have passed, he said, and good riddance to them.
“In a weird way, it’s kind of a relief to think, ‘Oh, I know I’m not that young sort of pretty thing anymore,’ ” he said. “It’s quite nice talking about what it was like to be the young pretty thing, rather than being it.”

‘I’m very excited to be a part of that Wes Anderson family,’ actor tells MTV News about joining the cast of ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel.’
Right now is a good time to be friends with Wes Anderson. The writer/director, known for his unique visual style and idiosyncratic characters, regularly pulls from a pool of frequent collaborators, and he just scored the second biggest hit of his career with “Moonrise Kingdom.”
For his next film, which is reportedly titled “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” Anderson is calling on a mix of familiar actors and some talent he has never worked with before, including Johnny Depp.
One of the newest additions to the “Wes Anderson family,” Jude Law, spoke with MTV News’ Josh Horowitz during the Toronto International Film Festival for his new film “Anna Karenina” and shared his excitement to finally work with the director.
Law told MTV News that his role in “The Grand Budapest Hotel” is something that’s been a long time coming. “I’ve been a huge fan of Wes,” he said. “I pestered him with emails for years, saying ‘I want to live in one of your films and I’d like to be in one of your films.’ ”
News of Anderson’s wish list appeared in July, but we haven’t heard much in the way of production details since then. Law, however, confirmed that Anderson should be shooting shortly. “[Anderson] sent me this wonderful script,” he said. “I think we start work on that in January.”
While Law hesitated to talk about the project at length, he did confirm Depp’s involvement and the size of his own role. “It will be the usual team [of actors]. I have heard Johnny Depp is indeed playing a key role in it,” he said. “I think my role is fleeting, but I’m very excited to be a part of that Wes Anderson family.”
