Los Angeles: Actor Jude Law has revealed that his four children keep him sane.

The 41-year-old actor, who is currently starring on stage in Shakespeare`s `Henry V` in London, says his four children; Rafferty, 17, Iris, 13 and Rudy, 11, with ex-wife Sadie Frost and four-year-old daughter Sophia Lee with model Samantha Burke, are delighted and embarrassed by his job but also the force which keeps him grounded, reported USA Today online.

"Acting is what I get to do only in the hours I`m not parenting, which is everything to me. My children keep me sane in what is a mad world - particularly mad if you choose to be an actor," Law said.

`Henry V` runs until February, at which point `The Talented Mr Ripley` star is looking forward to being able to take some time off.

"I`ll be unemployed as of then. It`s not like I want to stop working - it`s not like I can. You`ve got to pay the bills, like everyone else. But I`m not desperate. There`s a certain physical demand to doing eight shows a week, and I haven`t had a break in 18 months. By February I`ll be quite ready for a break, and I`m going to take one," Law added.
