Jude Law skipped school for cinema

London: Actor Jude Law says he was a film geek at school and used to skip class to go to the cinema.

The 40-year-old star attended Alleyn`s School, in Dulwich, south London, before joining Corelli College, which specialised in the Arts, reported Contactmusic.

"I was just a massive film geek. I would bunk off and go and watch three of four movies then go home and I`d pretend I`d been at school. I did that for weeks. I was obsessed with theatre and movies," he said.

Law, who raises four kids, said he reflects more on his younger years now that his children are growing up.

"I only look back and reflect on how young I was really, and I only do that because as your children get older you have a flashback to what you were doing when you were their age... What shocked me recently was that my son`s only a year off the age I was when I first went to work. I don`t often analyse the choices I was making back then, because I was just keen," he said.
