Kate Winslet has become the latest star to defend Jude Law following Oscar host Chris Rock's comments about the busy actor at the Academy Awards last year (05).
The actress admits she winced when comedian Rock joked that Law had been in every movie he had seen in the last four years - a comment that prompted Sean Penn to take to the stage and speak out on Law's behalf.
Winslet, who was working with Law at the time, admits her pal took it badly.
She says, "That wasn't a good moment. Also, it was a very unfair joke because Jude is one of my country's most gifted exports and he's a wonderful, wonderful person.
"He's deeply professional and also incredibly funny."
