Jude Law: Real Life 'Contagion' Is 'Absolutely Plausible'

Jude Law leaves the Donmar Warehouse after performing in Anna Christie on Monday (August 29) in London, England.

The 38-year-old British actor recently chatted about his new thriller, Contagion, which centers on a team of doctors who must deal with an outbreak of a deadly disease.

“The overriding impression from all of the experts I got from this was that it’s a matter of when, not if. I suppose if you just step back and look at it historically, these things have happened in the past, and not that long ago,” Jude shared.

“We’ve had little scares in the last few years, it seems absolutely plausible, actually more so now because of travel increase, international travel increases,” he explained, adding that he always wanted to work with the film’s director, Steven Soderbergh.

    I don’t mind the beard, but he could use a shower.

  • Seriously

    That beard is what we should CONTAIN, AKA QUARANTINE!!!!

  • John R.

    Oh, c’mon, people! He’s an actor, he grew the beard for his rôle. In those pictures he’s leaving the theatre, his workplace, and is heading home most probably to get a shower. Those are not pictures from a red carpet event.

    Dont’ sweat it, John R. The internet is full of stupid people, and you can’t fix stupid. You can’t even quarantine them.

    I’ll be anxious to see this movie because Jude Law is in it. I just watched the movie Cold Mountain with Jude and Nicole Kidman (for the fifth time) , they both should have won an Oscar for their performance, they were just unbelievably great.
