Law's Emotional Portrayal Of Alfie

Movie hunk JUDE LAW is relieved he got the part of ALFIE after he'd been through a marriage and had children - because he was able to play the character with extra emotion.

The British actor has three children RAFFERTY, 8, IRIS, 3, and RUDY, 2, with his ex-wife SADIE FROST, who he divorced last October (03).

He says, "I'm really glad that I got to play a part like Alfie after I had children and went through a marriage. I think that emotion can inform a character, even if he hasn't himself experienced that.

"Whether that's you the actor looking back at a time that has gone or whether it's simply having a sense of knowledge from further down the line than the character you're playing. I don't know what it is, but I'm glad I had that."
