Jude Law was impressed with the lengths his fellow Brits went to try and upset illusionist David Blaine while he attempted to exist without food for 44 days in a box above the River Thames.

The movie star took his son RAFFERTY to see Blaine "surviving"and he became a big fan of the American.

But that didn't stop him laughing at the magician's expense when he heard how Brits were trying to wreck Blaine's bid for glory.

Law says, "Someone hired a remote control helicopter with a burger on the bottom and they put it up there and hovered it in front of him.

"That was amazing. That took serious planning."

As a result of his late-night trips to see Blaine, Law's son now wants a magic kit for Christmas (03).
