Jude Law Hones His Hamlet

Jude Law Hones His Hamlet

Jude Law signs some autographs as he leaves Wyndham’s Theatre, after performing in a new production of “Hamlet” on Thursday (May 28).

The 36-year-old actor will perform in the sold-out production, which will officially open June 3 and play through Aug. 22. “A couple of thoughts spring to mind about the meaning of the play. One is that one must suffer in order to gain wisdom, the second that life is a journey, and it is the journey itself that matters, not arriving at your destination,” Jude said in an interview with the Telegraph.

“Hamlet is a bit like a great song that’s been covered by a load of different singers. It’s like Bob Dylan, Van Morrison and Joni Mitchell all covering the same song. But they would each bring a different sound and color to it,” he said.

20+ pictures inside of Jude Law honing his “Hamlet”…

    I love his quote on Hamlet.

  • Toni

    He’s really clinging on to that clump of hair! Shave it all off and stop living in denial! Bald men are sexy. Give me some Bruce Willis any day.

  • ISA

    You will not them all out on that stage honey!
    Can`t wait for the 31th July!

    If he needs me to, I’d be more than happy to help hone his Hamlet! Sorry, couldn’t help that.
    Break a leg, Jude!
    *blows kisses at Jude*

  • ISA

    Thank you so much for all the updates Jared!

  • elle

    Thanks Jared.

    Hals und beinbruch Jude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Good luck :)

  • purpleworm

    He looks tired; he’s a good man to sign autographs and brave photogs in the face just to wander off into the west end after a performance. It’ll be interesting to see how often he can and will be prepared to do that over the next few months. I hope this is a big success for him. He deserves it.

  • sheryl

    I was set to travel to London with a group of friends this summer to see Jude’s Hamlet, having purchased our tickets the moment they went on sale, but unforeseen circumstances are causing me to have to give up my seat on the trip to another friend. I think it would be really cool if, after they finish their week in Denmark, Jude and company would just slide it on over to NYC for a few weeks…or heck, even a week! :) I say nothing but good can come of that. Just a suggestion.

  • Sandy

    I feel so sorry for anyone who planned and waited and expected to go and then circumstances changed the picture and must add my voice
    to those saying ‘thank you’ Jared – this is a bonus and very welcome.
    He has worked very hard to get to this point ad his Hamlet is going to
    be exciting, probably different, and assuredly unforgettable.. Nothing
    but the best of luck is wished for Jude for the whole run. I’ll be going to
    London (with a lot of friends) the last week of July. it will be a long wait
    but I’m convinced a vry, very worthwhile one.best of luck,break a leg!

  • blackworm

    Yo, Purpleworm. He does look tired. I hope he sleeps most of the day today. He does deserve good things from this. This will be rigorous.

  • marjorie lambert

    I can only wish Mr. Law the very deserved best.
    I too purchased my tickets the day that they went on sale and look eagerly toward the July date; when I travel from overseas for the performance.
    Good luck sir!

  • nikki

    Hamlet never look more sexy !
    You go Jude. Your quote about Hamlet rocks.

    Thanks Jared.

  • may

    To think, I thought this man truly handsome once.

  • Angie

    So handsome and dashing! I watched him in The Holiday last night, and he was wonderful. To see him on stage would be so amazing!

  • Aliz

    Great actor and beautiful man *___* go Jude!

  • Dee

    I wish I was there to see Jude’s Hamlet

    much success to you Jude.

    you are my fix.

    Thanks Jared.

  • ericap

    Hot Hamlet!

  • Pole

    Thanks for the pictures Jared.

    I am so excited abotu Hamlet and I wish Jude lots of luck with the play.

    xoxoxoxo @Jude :-D

  • dolorescraeg

    jared…you are a wonder….,….these photos of the ever lovely and beautiful mr. law are so appreciated……he will make a fabulous hamlet because aside from his physical beauty he is a tremendous actor. two academy award nominations…the british academy award the french academy award……a tony nomination and a golden globe award….for the gentleman who is so concerned about jude’s hairline….don’t fret …..jude’s talent doesn’t depend on that…..he’s had that hairline forever. it just depends how he combs his hair and how long he lets it grow. i don’t think playing hamlet depends on his tresses. he’s not playing samson……besides the man is a walking work of art. beautiful and talented….a rarity of one.

  • http://Sexy sharyllee

    Wish I could be there for Jude’s Hamlet. He is always sexy and handsome no matter about his hair.

  • shamrock

    Good Luck to Jude during this Hamlet production. I’m sure he will knock their knickers off, and WOW the audience with pleasure and entertainment.

    Continue with the fight for PEACE around the globe Jude and helping others. Thank You!!!

    ciao~

  • Jude still a hottie

    It’s a shame that he’s losing his hair. Everything else about the man is perfect – and he’s such a good actor!

  • jami

    Awesome! Love Jude as Hamlet…can’t wait to hear all about it- You go Jude! best of luck :D

  • jami

    yea Jude, bring it to NYC next! love ya!

  • jill

    Jude Law as the crazy sexy cool Hamlet, Ok I’m there !

    Thanks Jared.

  • sylvia

    aww jude I hope you meet a nice girlfriend while you’re performing Hamlet.

  • dolorescraeg
  • zara

    I was lucky enough to see him tonight and he really was awesome. Didn’t expect him to get there as it’s an incredibly difficult role but he did! Pure genius!

  • Annie Rich

    ‘thank you, zara for the information. i m really looking forward to see it.

  • Sandy

    Wow, i have a long wait until the end of July but by then he will have made that role a part of him! No critics yet, but the people who have seen it are exctatic. never underestimate the power of good word of mouth – it has on occasion drowned out everything the critics can say.
    Is that swishing noise I hear critics turning the pages looking for more
    superlatives? BRAVO JUDE! You are my hero!

  • dolorescraeg

    on the imdb jude law site one of our ladies saw the show and said he was beyond amazing. she went to the stage door, took photos which are on flickr…he was so sweet and thanked her for coming…she didn’t have a pen so he gave her his…..she couldn’t get over his face….sculpted….beautiful. we thank her for her valuable input.

  • lucy

    What is this about Jude talking about 101 dalmations when he was a kid?

  • dolorescraeg

  • lucy

  • ella

  • ella

  • http://Sexy sharyllee

    Jennifer Aniston is too old for Jude.I do not care for her.

  • http://Sexy sharyllee

    Jennifer Aniston is too old for Jude. I do not care for her.

  • dolorescraeg

    lucy,
    maybe if you go to you tube. i have that video for so many years….jude, even as a child was brilliant. what alot of people don’t know about him is that he is extremely bright. his parents were both teachers ad intoduced him to the arts very early on. if you listen to jude law on interviews he is amazingly articulate. his vocabulary is vast…go to you tube and daily motion and search jude law…you’ll be delighted. he’s not your every day joe. you don’t see a jude law often….so said the french director jean jaques annaud when he first spotted jude…

  • vanessa

    I saw the performance the other day… Jude carried the whole show and was absolutely amazing! His finest performance to date!

  • Pole

    @vanessa:

    Thanks for your ‘review’ – it’s great to get input from those who has seen the play :-D

  • dolorescraeg

    oh vanessa,
    i am delighted that you felt jude’s performance was so great. ‘tho it doesn’t surprise me. he is a great actor. sometimes his physical beauty detracts from his actual talent as an actor. people are so busy oohing and aahing over his looks they don’t take into account the depth of his performances….thanks again.

  • Sara

    Guys, I’m about to faint from over excitement for you all who will see Jude in Hamlet! I hope everything is going perfectly well so you all can see him up close, hug him and who knows share some lovely few words if that’s possible like our ardent fan from IMDb :D. Everything you’re trying so hard to get from this unforgetable experience making it the memorable one and that you deserves for so loong of anxious waiting! I’m rooting for you my babies and for Jude, of course!
    Go Jude! You rock my world! Love You ♥

  • Sara

    ps: looking forward for more details later!!
