Courtney Love "saved" Chris Rock from a potential fight with Jude Law after the actor was left unimpressed by the funnyman's gags at the 2005 Oscars.
Rock famously poked fun at the Sherlock Holmes star during the ceremony six years ago by joking he was in "every movie" at the time, after a string of the actor's films including Alfie, The Aviator and I Heart Huckabees were released the year before (04).
The comedian then met Law following the show and feared an altercation would take place - but he credits Love with defusing the situation by scaring Law off.
Rock tells Esquire, "I was sitting with Courtney Love, and she might've saved me from a fight. I'm not going to say a**-whipping... But you never know - he's hanging out with Guy Ritchie. Those guys go at it. Those motherf**kers are in shape. So Jude Law might whip my a**, I don't know. Those guys bring out mats and sh*t... Nothing (happened). Courtney kind of barked, or was growling, and that was it."
