Jude Law’s children think his status as an actor just means he can embarrass them more publically. Jude embarrasses his kids “on a great big level”.
The British actor has starred in a series of hit flicks, including The Holiday and The Talented Mr. Ripley. While he loves taking children Rafferty, Iris, Rudy and Sophia to the cinema, it makes everyone involved cringe when a trailer for one of his films is show.
“That happened to me once when I was with my kids,” he recalled to BBC 1 radio host Nick Grimshaw.
“It was really embarrassing, I hid! Of course no one was looking, no one knew. It was worse for the children; they were mortified, all around me. [They think]: ‘He’s just making a fool of himself on a great big level… not just at the front gate or in the front room!’”
As we have mentioned earlier this week, the first official trailer for ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ has been released today, and you can watch it below. It was also just announced that the film will hit theaters on March 7, 2014!

Earlier today Jude has joined a demonstration in central London against Russia’s detention of 30 Greenpeace activists following a protest at an Arctic oil rig. About 800 people gathered outside the Russian embassy to put pressure on Russia to release the group, which includes six Britons.
The Russian coastguard seized the ship Arctic Sunrise and everyone on board following the 18 September protest at the offshore platform owned by Russia’s state-controlled energy giant Gazprom in the Pechora Sea. The activists are now in custody in the northern city of Murmansk.
Law said he was “exercising my right to peacefully protest” at the demonstration. Jude who is friends with one of the detainees Frank Hewetson, said the arrests were an international disgrace.
“I am just adding my face and body to the mass of support,” Jude said. “The fact that there is a threat of conviction did not put them off. What is ludicrous is that they have been charged with piracy, which has a threat of 15 years in prison. Of course I am worried about Frank because I care about his family and I care about him but I know that he is incredibly durable.
“I think that it is very interesting that the people over there probably knew there would be an arrest involved and the threat of a conviction is probably part and parcel of the act of drawing attention to the drilling in the Arctic, which we all know is an international problem which needs confronting.”
Protesters at the event stood quietly behind banners declaring “Free the Climate Defenders”, “Journalist and Not Pirate” and “Free The Arctic 30″.
Jude spoke to the BBC at the protest, and you can watch the video here.
