I always manage to forget that Jude Law is actually a terrific actor. “The Talented Mr. Ripley”? “I Heart Huckabees”? “Closer”? So good! Jude’s latest role is as the titular “Dom Hemingway,” a gangster free after 12 years in prison, trawling the streets of London to collect what he’s rightfully owed. Richard E. Grant, Demian Bichir, and “Game of Thrones” beauty (and Frisky favorite) Emilia Clarke also star in what looks to be a violent, vulgar, and shockingly hilarious new film. “Dom Hemingway” premiered in London last night, but it won’t hit American theaters until next April. In the meantime, let’s hope this cheeky (literally) trailer can hold us over. Not safe for work, unless your place of work, like mine, is firmly pro-Jude Law’s naked bum. [via Celebitchy]
Jude Law, in The New York Times magazine, has this to say on no longer being Hollywood’s young ‘pretty thing’:
“In a weird way, it’s kind of a relief to think, ‘Oh, I know I’m not that young sort of pretty thing anymore. It’s quite nice talking about what it was like to be the young pretty thing, rather than being it.”

Iris Frost, the 12-year-old daughter of Jude Law and British actress Sadie Frost, finds herself at the center of some undeserved controversy after she wore a particularly cheeky dress yesterday while sitting front row at Vivienne Westwood. The Peter Pan-collared dress, which her mum said Iris had received as a gift, featured a print of candy hearts brandishing phrases such as “Blow Me,” “Drink Poison,” “Choke,” “Eat Shit,” and “Please Drown.” I don’t know where the contention stemmed from, but Sadie found it necessary to take to Twitter in order to explain the situation, saying, “I seem to have upset people and am shocked myself … Iris is a sweet, innocent girl.” I don’t buy it that neither Sadie nor Iris knew what it said on the dress, but I don’t care, either, because I think it’s awesome. Yes, she’s twelve, but I had much nastier things to say at that age than “I Hate You” and “Die Slowly.” All this dress tells me is that Iris Frost is pretty damn cool for a 12-year-old. [The Gloss]
The folks over at theBERRY have kind of an epic gallery of rare celeb photos, including the four above. By the looks of that photo of Jude Law, he and I both shopped at Wet Seal during the early ’90s. Oh, and there is an even better photo of Brad Pitt photo at the link, but you really have to see it in full to appreciate. [theBERRY]
I’m fully convinced that Michael Lohan’s headline-making domestic violence arrest yesterday was copied straight out of Mel Gibson’s playbook. Of course, Mel’s famed blowouts were uniquely terrible because some of them were directed towards the teenage son of ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. Last month, Mel paid $100,000 to Oksana’s 14-year-old for the guarantee that he wouldn’t sue the once-respected actor for reportedly “terrorizing” him during altercations with his mother. That’s low, even for Mel Gibson. Additionally, his own toddler daughter with Grigorieva bore witness to a number of her father’s detonations.
It’s hard to top this sh**ty parenting, but surprise, surprise, more than a few celebs come come! After the jump, six more celebrities who I definitely wouldn’t want for a dad.
