Jude Law: Rob Pattinson is Taking My Heartthrob Status

Jude Law was at one point the hottest guy in Hollywood. But in recent years, his reputation, combined with his receding hairline, have bumped him down a few notches on the hot list.

There’s always a new “it” guy in Hollywood, but Jude seems to think that no one supercedes Rob Pattinson these days. And we have to say, we agree!

37-year-old Jude spoke with Ok! UK magazine recently, and said he’s looking forward to getting older because of the different roles he’ll be able to play. He said: “I think it will be interesting to be old. It involves a lot of possibilities. The future doesn't frighten me at all. On the contrary, I am looking forward to it.”

“If I have a look around at the moment I feel great relief because finally others are entering the limelight,” Law continued. “Men like Robert Pattinson must now play the Adonis. For me it was always a restraint, a restriction.”

In fact, Jude insists he never wanted to be known as a heartthrob. “My goal was always to be recognized as a good actor but no one was interested in that, simply because society just wants to warm towards your appearance. This is the great blemish of society,” he said.

“When you suddenly appear on the scene and you are the new face, everything centers on you. I experienced this in my mid-20s and I found it rather hard.”

We wish Jude luck in getting older! Maybe he’ll finally clean up his act and stay faithful to his girlfriend now that he’s not the hot Hollywood heartthrob anymore!
