Law's bad boy act key to success with ladies

Jude Law acts like a bad boy because women like it.

The 37-year-old ‘Sherlock Holmes’ star, who has been holidaying with ex-girlfriend Sienna Miller in the Caribbean over the Christmas period, insists he wouldn’t be so popular if he acted like more of a gentleman.

He told Parade magazine: “I think women like bad boys. That’s been my experience.

“At a certain age you figure out what works for you and being a good boy never worked for me. And if you’re a bad boy, they like it.”

“But, eventually, you have to grow up and realise relationships are hard work. It’s like cultivating anything. They need attention.”

Jude and Sienna have been spending a lot of time together in the last month, sparking rumours that they are back together.

The pair were engaged in 2004, but split in 2006 after allegations he had cheated on her with his children’s nanny.

However – Jude, who has three children with ex-wife Sadie Frost and a daughter Sophia, three months, following a brief fling with model Samantha Burke – insists he shouldn’t be judged by his previous actions.

He said: “People seem more interested in setting someone up as this bad person, and that disheartens me a little. We all mess up, but we're equally capable of making it better, of healing wounds. It's just a matter of keeping your head on straight.”

Despite his attitude, the ‘Alfie’ star’s parents are said to be furious that he and Sienna are dating again.

A source said recently: “Jude’s folks are upset at the rekindling of his romance with Sienna. They have made it abundantly clear he doesn’t have their blessing.

“They believe the relationship was a rollercoaster last time and they were left to pick up the pieces when they finished.”
