However, as time has gone by, Jude's looks aren't quite what they used to be anymore.

And it seems that the man himself is more than aware of this fact.

Talking to T magazine, Jude Law admitted that he feels relieved not to be the centre of attention because of his looks.

He explained: "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.'"

Well that's a rather honest way of looking at things.

Jude also admitted that he is happy that he can say that there was a point in his life when he was a pin up.

He admitted: "It's quite nice talking about what it was like to be the young pretty thing, rather than being it."

With the press no longer focused on his looks or his love life, Jude Law revealed that he feels more confident within himself and as an actor.

He said: "Without sounding too pretentious, it's difficult to remember that it's an art form and you are, maybe, an artist and you have to make decisions on that level.

"I feel kind of more confident, more settled as a human being, more settled in my own skin... [When you're older] you are allowed to be an actor, and the parts you get are more interesting."
