Jude Law 'relieved' for Robert Pattinson

27 January 2010 [14:40] - TODAY.AZ
Jude Law has confessed that he is relieved to have finally surrendered his status as a Hollywood heartthrob.

The 37-year-old actor insisted that he is now too old to still be considered a pin-up, especially when so many young stars are breaking into the movie world.

He told German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung: "If I have a look around at the moment I feel great relief because finally others are entering the limelight. Men like Robert Pattinson must now play the Adonis. For me it was always a restraint, a restriction."

The Sherlock Holmes star added: "My goal was always to be recognised as a good actor but no-one was interested in that, simply because society just wants to warm towards your appearance. This is the great blemish of society.

"When you suddenly appear on the scene and you are the new face, everything centres on you. I experienced this in my mid-20s and I found it rather hard."
