Jude Law has been all over the news lately for his ongoing drama with out-of-wedlock fatherhood, but last night he managed to duck that question on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
He looked a little exhausted as he fielded questions from Jimmy, which focused exclusively on Jude's current gig in the Broadway production of Hamlet. The British actor is getting rave reviews for his portrayal of the lead character in Shakespeare's masterpiece.
Regis and Kelly also treated Law with kid gloves when he appeared on their show on Friday -- just three days after Samantha Burke, the model with whom he is said to have had an affair, gave birth to a baby girl named Sophia. Law reportedly had a fling with Burke last year when was in New York to shoot Sherlock Holmes.
After last week's suspiciously tame line of questioning, a source told The New York Post that Law would only agree to interviews on the condition that the topic of his affair and the newborn would not be asked. His reps denied such a ban and dismissed the allegation as "ridiculous."
Gossip aside, Jude's appearance on Late Night was not without its entertaining moments. In honor of Jude's play, he and Jimmy channeled their inner little boys and had a mock sword fight with foam sticks.
Jimmy then asked the actor to read the lyrics to Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" in the grave, upper-crust English accent he uses to recite the words of Hamlet's famous monologues. Wethinks he did not protest too much -- at least not on matters related to his professional life.
Do you think Jude should come clean about his affair or tell the press to mind their business? Chime in below!
