He was engaged to Sienna Miller and has stepped out with some of the world’s most beautiful actresses.But film star Jude Law’s latest date is a wardrobe assistant from East London – who bears an uncanny resemblance to his ex-wife and mother of his three children, Sadie Frost.
Law, 39, has been dating 31-year-old Ellen Crawshaw since October while they have been working on the British gangster movie Dom Hemingway. A film source said: ‘Jude and Ellen’s romance is the talk of the set. It started last month when we were filming in France.
‘There was an instant connection and they’d been flirting but it didn’t turn physical until the night we all went out for a cast and crew party just outside St Tropez. Since then they have been inseparable. They are making no attempt to hide their feelings for each other and both of them look so happy.
‘They clearly get on fantastically well. He’s single and so is she, so there’s nothing to hide. They are just two people in love having a great time together.’
The relationship is believed to be Law’s first serious romance since he split from Ms Miller in 2011.He and Miss Crawshaw – who described herself on her Twitter page as ‘a serial seducer’ – have spent time together at various filming locations including the South of France and London’s East End.
Filming is due to finish in the New Year and the movie, in which Law plays a safecracker released from jail after 12 years, is scheduled to reach cinemas later in 2013.
Despite the blossoming romance, Miss Crawshaw, from Whitechapel, East London, who has worked on blockbusters including Prometheus and An Education, is said to be worried that the relationship will peter out once filming is completed.
Last week the production moved to the Isle of Man and the pair were spotted kissing and cuddling in the bar of the The Palace Hotel in Douglas, the island’s capital.An onlooker said: ‘They were having a great time and didn’t care who saw them being intimate. The bar was full. She stuck to water but he was drinking lager and whisky.
‘Jude has grown a beard for the film, which she kept stroking, and she was feeling his arms because he has bulked up for the movie.They are always hanging out and sneaking off together during filming and afterwards, although she is worried he might leave her after the shoot is finished.’
Law has a history of meeting women on the sets of films. In 1994, he was introduced to Ms Frost on the set of British film Shopping and the couple married three years later.They split up in 2003. That year the star then fell for Ms Miller when they were both in the remake of the 1966 film Alfie.
