Jude Law wants to pass his clothes on to his children.

The 39-year-old actor - who has children Rafferty, 15, Iris, 11, and Rudy, nine, with ex-wife Sadie Frost, as well as 20-month-old Sophia from a brief relationship with Samantha Burke - is changing his style now he is getting older and while he is happy to share his wardrobe with his family, there are some items he won' t let anyone else wear.

He said: ''Now I'm approaching 40, I've stopped wearing certain clothes. I'm happy to pass on clothes to my children.

''Everything fits my son, Rafferty, 15, but he's into the skinny jeans and tight jacket look.

''He was wading through my wardrobe the other day, looking for a denim jacket. He's desperate to wear my Parka, but I'm not letting him. It's an original!''

The 'Anna Karenina' star admitted he is shocked by how quickly his children are growing up - particularly because Rafferty and his friends are now taller than him.

He told Britain's Glamour magazine: ''It's amazing how fast my kids are growing up. I had a house full of Rafferty's friends recently, and they took over all these rooms.

''I was like, 'I'm just trying to get to the kitchen, excuse me.' It was like I'd been invaded by this gang, most of whom were bigger than me. It was funny.''
