Jude Law @ Toronto Film Festival

Jude Law @ Toronto Film Festival

Jude Law and HFPA guests attend the In Style Magazine and The Hollywood Foreign Press Association Toronto International Film Festival Party held at the Windsor Arms Hotel on Tuesday in Toronto, Canada.

It was recently announced that Jude will play the title role in the 2009 revival of Shakespeare’s Hamlet at London’s West End.

Theatre artistic director, Michael Grandage, has said: “Jude was on the record as saying he wanted to tackle Hamlet at some point.

“He is a muscular, visceral actor who has a very direct connection with raw emotion.

“It will potentially be a very different take on a play we have seen a lot in recent years.”

    He’s so cute! But why do people wear clothing that is going to restrict air flow to their pits, pit stains aren’t too attractive?! Jude is a great actor.

    Except for the sweat and the shoes he looks great to me although perhaps a bit casual for a party. The grey shirt suits him really well IMO. Tres sexy as always :)

    He seems very unstable and like he could turn on you in a heart beat.

    Good morning! He certainly looks wide-eyed and bushy-tailed awake after
    a good night’s sleep (and like a man 15 years younger!)) and a long day with jet lag and excitement etc….He always manages to be at the right parties and the right paces but most important is the story this morning about his reactions to Afghanistan on the trip he made there last month.The statistics on children’s health are mind-bogling and for a very hands-on father like Jude terribly heartbreaking.I can’t wait to see the documentary they did that will be out this Spring. Keep it up Jude, you are my absolute HERO and you too Jared for bringing us this good stuff.

    Yeah, Regina, it happens to everyone…also a matter of opinion IMHO.

    iheartjude Says:

    dolores, I read your comments oftenly and I can see that you might feel the same way with me, about completely head over feet admiring Jude. It’s like every single moment you just have his face flashing over your mind. And for me, it is kinda crazy and kinda annoying, knowing that I am in love with someone that impossible to have (even to meet, considering that I live in other continent, in Asia).

    I mean, just look at him…his green to blue eyes that shines like laserbeam…

    Those eyes that calmly, sharply, aimed at the enemies at the enemy at the gates, gush..got me all wet..:)

    Please advise me how to overcome this feeling????

    iheartjude,
    I don’t know…cold showers? I don’t think there’s much else you can do short of talking to someone professionally (seriously)…it might help.

    Sandy Says:

    To all you girls who profess to walking around in a JUde-induced haze and seeing his face swim before your eyes – The only way to conquer it is to give in and after several years when it has just become a part of you you can smile and control it a bit but from my experience it never goes away
    for shich I am truly grateful. My admiration for him has increased in
    direct proportion to my love and therefore this is who i am now but I have
    lerned to function this way and life is great.Everyone who knows me kows
    that I will be in London in 2009 to see him do the role I/ve been waiting for the past few years.For those interested there will be a group of us who will be there at the same time, let me know here, on IMDB etc. you
    will see notices.

    sweetie don’t even worry about it. in the world we live in with wars, famine, diseases…here we all are mesmerized and addicted to a beautiful, talented and very sexy guy….what could be wrong with that? we’re not commiting crimes we’re expressing our utter and complete devotion to a living work of art….jude deserves our admiration…he’s a healthy hobby…..and it’s one that’s shared by millions of gals all over the world. he’s someone everybody would love to know..his beauty is a comfort as is his voice. we love to be part of his world. he’s like a ciber space friend…i would never feel guilty about time spent giving oneself happiness.

    Jude Law may be British, but his fans extend far and wide.

    The Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto turned into a fan club for the actor, who was in town to promote his new film, Sleuth, also starring Sir Michael Caine.

    Banners and posters saying Jude Law were seen from early on in the afternoon, with fans having camped out on the streets since the early morning to ensure they got a glimpse of the Oscar nominee.

    And there was chaos when the actor, who only jetted in on Monday, finally arrived, with people screaming and shouting his name, and the crowd surging forward.

    People got so excited that the metal barriers, separating the stars from the pavements filled with people, were almost knocked down.

    As Jude, who sported a black suit with skinny black tie, continued to sign autographs and take photos, security had to move quickly to keep the barriers up.

    Earlier, the crowds were rather more sedate when co-star Michael and director Kenneth Branagh stepped out on the red carpet

    you got it so right, dolores!

    Here’s one that I just found.

    Sandy Says:

    If I undertand your question IHEart you want to know about the role of HANMLET that he will do in 2009. Most of us have run into it when studying
    Shakespeare in school and I would guess it is probably the most famous role in all of Shakespeare, ONe that has been done at least once by every actor worth his salt and something JUde always wanted to do but I think kepat pushing off until he felt he was mature enough and ready.(NOt mature as in old but mature as in life’s experience, etc.) Two people whose opinion is worthwhile have given him the go-ahead actually, both David Lan and KEnneth Branagh. I too believe he is capable of more than he realizes and this will be a wonderful role for him.) Hamlet is a brilliant study of a man in crises who wants desperately to understand himself and be able to act appropriately on his life situation which requires action. It is just perfect for Jude. I once saw a production of HAMLET in Denmark in a park in Danish (of which I understood not one word) but knowing the story I was able to follow it very well and it was a most moving performance. (I also visited ELsinore castle and can see it in my mind still. If you want to know more (besides reading it and about it) rent the Olivier HAMLET or the Branagh one or both. Knowing the platy well will make our seeing it all the more enjoyable in 2009.

    Belinda Says:

    Thanks, Sandy. That was an excellent description of the role.

    Pole Says:

    I think the Branagh version of Hamlet is fantastic. It’s great the he’ll be the one directing. I’ve also seen the one with Mel Gibson but found Branagh’s easier to understand (English is not my first language).

    getting back to your addiction…i posted on another site that it’s an ailment called judeitis for which there is no known cure or antidote. it’s not life threatening but the only way to live with it is to be constantly fed doses and doses of jude law daily.

  46. 46
    iheartjude Says:

    it’s been a while since my last post and I’ve seen many replies.
    Thanks Sandy for sharing that info, it has added my jude-knowledge..

    Thanks Sheryl for the links, I’ve read them and added more addiction to him …

    And Thanks Dolores…I will surely take my judeitic medical doses regularly, such as…150times per day :)

    iheartjude Says:

    sherryl, I am sorry, I just can’t handle myself from copying and pasting your referred article…It is truly unimaginable to be in her position at that moment…I’d be so mesmerized to his lips …I’d be fainted!

    “Next, at the Park Hyatt, I had to wait in a room-full of journalists for ages in order to speak with Jude Law, Michael Caine and Kenneth Branagh. These were “roundtable” interviews, which consists in a bunch of journalists sitting around an actual round table and trying to ask questions in the faux ambience of a dinner party. When Jude Law turned to face me, all of a sudden I could barely hear his answer to my question. His mouth just kept moving, and that’s the problem, really – he’s got mesmerizing lips. His whole face is pretty compelling, in fact. He was wearing a natty, grey (not sure it started off that way) waffle undershirt and took off his bright new Nikes under the table. ”

    There’s just something about Jude’s lips (and eyes) that ..mm..how do I describe it..mm..it’s like..mm..gush…help me out…

    Liz, I thought of that exact same article!!!!! I read it a while back, and when I saw the article I posted above, it made me think of it.

    iheartjude Says:

    not too important, just to let you all know that today I’m working at the office, finishing my reports and concepts in the computer, while, at the same time, playing the “Breaking & Entering” without even watch it…I only wanted to hear Jude’s voice and how he pronounce his lines with his beautiful english accent..he has a “husky” voice, which made it so sexy..
    crazy…but this just is my way of “taking my medicine regularly” as dolores said…

  52. 52
    dolorescraeg Says:

    iheart jude,
    since you are such an adoring jude law fan and well you should be go to this lik law news there’s always good postings and photos…

    http://community.livejournal.com/law_news/113690.html

    also go to IMDB ….search for jude law..scroll down to “more” plenty of jude talk…..also “just jude”…deneen posts fabulous photos. good luck.

    sheryl Says:

    iheartjude, Dolores helped me as well when I recently caught Jude fever…mine began as a very fast and hard crush a few months ago, and I kept wondering “Where have I been all this time?” But life circumstances in the past several years weren’t really conducive to much movie viewing or celeb watching…so, although Cold Mountain was my first introduction two years ago (I thought of him as “my little hottie from Cold Mountain” after that), it was The Holiday that hit me between the eyes and sent me for a spin on the Jude ride! Since May, I have rented and watched almost all of his movies (I still haven’t seen Final Cut, Shopping, Bent, Love Honor and Obey, or Snickets, but they’ll be coming along soon). I’m slowly adding to my collection of Jude movies that I own. Everytime we rent a movie, my kids are like, “Mommy, is he in this one, too?” hahahahaha

  54. 54
    iheartjude Says:

    Dolores, I was about to ask you about the “jude-links” where I will be able to pour out all my feelings of him. You just can read my mind….Thankssss a buncchchhh, I love you, Dolores.
    And Sheryl, you’re a mommy just like me, I am a mommy of three boys and your experience was like mine, too, my eldest once asked me the almost same question when I was watching 3 movies in a row one day, Closer, Enemy at the Gates and I Heart Huckabees…he asked: I think that man is just everywhere, mum…LOL..
    By the way, I haven’t seen those movies as well, Sheryl, and I was trying to get this WILDE .avi file, since I saw that he was kissing an dmaking out with Stephen Fry .. I thought that might be reduce my craziness of him, to see him act as gay….(which I know it won’t)

  55. 55
    sheryl Says:

    No, iheartjude, I don’t think that will do it…

  56. 56
    Belinda Says:

    iheartjude:

    I thought Jude was extremely sexy in Wilde. And I’m a heterosexual woman. I found the film erotic.

  57. 57
    dolorescraeg Says:

    o.k. you guys i’m a grandma…my eldest grandaughter teaches biology and my youngest is an artist. so jude’s appeal knows no boundaries. if you see jude law making love to steven frye in wilde your libido will work overtime. jude is such a phenominal and brave actor….not too many guys would do this part but that’s the beauty of jude. he’s not like anybody else. i heart jude…don’t forget voice your opinions on law news just jude and imdb…..by the way jude’s entrance in wilde is one of the most outstanding entrances of any actor. he’s completely golden and you need to wear sunglasses because his beauty is blinding….it was repeated again in his entrance in ripley….oh by the way jude standing at cameron diaz front door in the holiday wan’t too shabby either….he’s a rarity of one. unique…unique……

  58. 58
    Belinda Says:

    Yeah, Jude standing at Cameron Diaz’ front door in The Holiday was what did it for me. I literally have not been the same since.
