Jude Law, who still relies on public transport to get around, may be the passenger next to you on your next tube ride.

The 38-year-old actor – who has children Rafferty, 14, Iris, 10, and eight-year-old Rudy with ex-wife Sadie Frost, as well as 22-month-old Sophia with Samantha Burke –tries to lead as normal a life as he possibly can as he thinks that will reduce the attention he receives in his personal life.

He said: “I’ve created a haven that works for me and my family. I still enjoy a very normal life with my kids. We use trains and busses and that’s often the best way.

“If you build up some sort of psychological bubble around you, I think you’re asking for trouble.”

Despite his worldwide fame, Jude insists he doesn’t think of himself as a “celebrity” because he doesn’t seek attention.

He explained in an interview with The Observer newspaper: “I hate the word celebrity, which means I’m in some messy, mushy sort of bracket with people who have won reality shows and chefs and socialites and it’s just not something I see myself as.

“I don’t invite people into my home and I’ve never courted the press unless I’m talking to them about some work I’m doing. And I don’t do that very much.”
