Jude Law 'angry' at Oscar host Chris Rock

In case you missed it, Jude Law recently fired back at Chris Rock for the potshots the Oscar host took at him in 2005.

Rock chided producers in the audience for taking shortcuts to make movies cheaper.

"You want Tom Cruise and all you can get is Jude Law? Wait. It’s not the same thing, O.K.?" Rock ranted. "Who is Jude Law? Why's he in every movie I have seen for the last four years? He's in everything. Even the movies he's not in, if you look at the credits he made cupcakes or something."

Law told the New York Times: "At first I laughed because I didn’t think he knew who I was. Then I got angry as his remarks became personal. My friends were livid. It's unfortunate I had five or six films come out at the same time."
