It’s Jude Phwoar no more! Actor Law, 46, struggles to stand up straight in an ill-fitting suit just weeks after setting his female fans’ pulses racing in THOSE skimpy trunks
Struggling to stand up straight in an ill-fitting suit as his tired eyes droop closed, he might be mistaken for just another late-night reveller on the streets of Central London.
But this is a barely recognisable Jude Law, out on the town with a friend a few nights ago.
The snap records a remarkable – and unfortunate – transformation from how the actor appeared just three weeks ago when he paraded his honed torso in just a pair of cream white Speedos while filming in Venice.

Those photographs provoked delighted comment from his many female fans about how, at the age of 46, Law had lost none of his matinee idol looks or chiselled athleticism.
But he cut a very different figure in Soho, as his jacket pinched awkwardly at his waist, and he struggled to hold up a pair of heavily creased trousers with one hand.
The famous golden locks that once lit up the screen in The Talented Mr Ripley were tufted up, which – with the ill-fitting suit and dopey hangdog expression – gave him more than a passing resemblance to comedy great Stan Laurel.
He and his mystery friend were engaged in an animated conversation before Law, ever the gentleman, showed her to a car and then walked off back into Soho.
The father of five, whose string of past lovers include Sadie Frost and Sienna Miller, is engaged to long-term girlfriend Phillipa Coan, and it is rumoured that they will be getting married in France next month.
In his next film, Vox Lux, Law plays the manager of a pop diva played by Natalie Portman, while he donned the skimpy trunks to reprise his role as Pope Pius XIII in the forthcoming TV series The New Pope.
And is ex-wife Sadie really a car mechanic?
Also snapped in surprising garb last week was Jude Law’s ex Sadie Frost – who swapped her party gladrags for mechanic’s overalls to undertake an apprenticeship at an all-female garage in North London.
The actress used Instagram to post this photograph of herself sitting on a pile of tyres at Spanners With Manners.
She wrote: ‘Great anecdote [sic] to the stresses of this modern world, doing a bit of hard graft! Got myself an apprenticeship at my mate’s garage.’
The garage said she had done ‘a great first day’, while Frost, 53, said she was ‘surrounded by my favourite things – women, cups of tea and a bit of grease’.
