Jude Law: You Can Play With What You Look Like

Posted: Updated:

For his starring role in "Dom Hemingway," Jude Law put on 20 pounds and wore fake teeth.

Presumably the studio paid for the teeth, but a really authentic-looking prosthetic nose cost too much.  So Jude improvised.

"We wanted to make a broken nose, but the budget wasn't great and we couldn't find the right prosthetic," Jude told WENN.  "So I worked out this way, if you get a teat off a baby's bottle and you cut it and you shove it up your nostril, it makes your nose look huge. If you do it on one side only, it makes it look broken. So I was doing that every night."

Jude Law joins Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone on Good Day L.A.
