Jude Law in Nice

Posted on May 23, 2014

Why, Jude. Have you been working out?

Because this is all working for us and usually, we’d be so distracted by that douchey hat that we wouldn’t be able to see anything else.

This is how we want to be seen, dashing through the Nice airport on the way to Cannes; breezy and hot at the same time. Nicely played. Perfectly movie star. Specifically Euro-movie star, because we can’t see someone like, say, Matt Damon running about in this getup. It takes a special man to work a pair of tiny, cuffed, almost-white jeans. Attaboy. We’re jealous. We want to Be You, Jude.

Except for the hat part, of course.

    Excuse me, Mr. Law, but we need to caress your biceps in case you’re carrying anything dangerous in there. For security reasons, I swear.

    • Kathy

      I’d like to fill in for the TSA person just this once.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      Pat it down thoroughly; you know, for the country.

  • Sophie

    No, sorry, still too distracted by the general douchiness. Including the cuffed trousers.

    • Maria Parramore

      Yeah, it’s super try hard.

      • Rhonda Shore

        It’s super rat pack.

  • Capt. Renault

    The hat is for his Matthew McConaughey disguise. Work that Oscar boost, Jude!

  • MilaXX

    love the shoe

  • deelup

    Jude’s been wearing hats like this for years. It’s not some affectation. I think it is just his style. I’ll let him have it. And me…

    • CPK1

      It’s his style and his desire (unnecessary in my view) to hide the fact he is losing his hair.

  • decormaven

    Ahh, a summer sausage reverie. Basking in it now….

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Just in time for the long weekend.

  • Courtenay P

    can I hit that?

  • lunchcoma

    I normally sigh and let Jude have his hats, since I’d be insecure about my hairline too if people had been discussing it for 15 years, but it looks like he’s at the airport. Why on earth would you want to drag a hat along to the airport?

    • CPK1

      douchey hats seem to be proliferating at the moment. Its an epidemic

    • decormaven

      I figure he didn’t want to pack it in his checked baggage, and it’s too bulky/fragile to pack in a carryon. He’ll want the hat for the strong sun at seaside.

      • Sophie

        I’d love to see him with a hat box at the airport. I’m quite sure the only celebrity who will ever do that is Dita von Teese, though.

    • alyce1213

      I’m not a hat wearer, but I’ve taken a hat on vacation to sunny places. It’s hard (impossible) to pack a hat without ruining it, and so I’ve worn it, even though I didn’t really want to.

      • Glammie

        I have hats that are crushable, but they have such big brims (I only look good in big brims or no brims) that they take up too much luggage space. Ergo, on my head it goes.

        This thread makes me want to start crocheting a hat . . .

    • Gatto Nero

      Makes him slightly less recognizable. I don’t blame him.

  • Danielle

    Excellent cuff deployment, Jude.

  • J.W.

    Why do all of these people wear hats in airports? There’s no sun and they look contrived.

  • Frank_821

    funny thing is I always like to wear a hat when i go to the airport. 1) I like to have something to cover my eyes so I can nap on the plane 2) I prefer something of my own to place my personal effects when going through the checkpoint instead of that plastic bowl

    • J.W.

      That makes sense.

      • alyce1213

        Also, hats get crushed in suitcases.

        • J.W.

          True, I just went through a lot of trouble to bring a hat home from New Orleans without getting it crushed.

  • Denise Alden

    Gotta say it’s f’ing refreshing to see a celebrity sans entourage. Can it be true? Or are they lurking just outside of our viewing range?

    • Glammie

      He’s kind of B-list now, right? So he could be sans entourage. Looks like he was signing an autograph.

      • Denise Alden

        I hadn’t even thought of B-list! You’re probably right.

  • AthenaJ

    The sunglasses and hat make me think of Billy Joel.

  • traceyishere

    Did you see him in Grand Budapest in the tub? He was uber hot, the muscles are not that new.

  • numenah

    Hairy forearms! A rare sighting these days.

  • alyce1213

    I have a question about hats. Are classic Panamas considered douchey too? Is it how/when it’s worn?
    Would a Panama have been a better choice, considering he’s in the south of France?

    • majorbedhead

      Is that a Panama hat? I thought it was a fedora, but I know next to nothing about hats.

      I think, in this instance, it’s that the hat is tipped back on his head, which will never not read generic boy band to me.

      • alyce1213

        No, this one is a fedora — a small fedora, which seems to be the (douche)hat of choice for boystars, especially worn on the back of the head. I prefer Panamas (usually in white or off-white), in finely woven straw, which is why I asked.

        • Trent

          Well, I love hats, but sometime in the past few years the Internets collectively rose up and declared them douchey. Pretty much anything a male celeb wears on his head is now considered an affectation, which sucks for the rest of us who still enjoy hats of all types. **sucks bitterly on a vodka tonic**

          • alyce1213

            Hold tight and wear your hats. The trend will shift.

  • dustinrhodes

    I must seriously have THE WORST TASTE. EVER. But I love the hat — on him.

  • random_poster

    It’s been a long time since I found him attractive. He looks good here.

  • formerlyAnon

    No. Personal preference only, but that preference is strong. No.

    • @Biting Panda

      We all have our instinctual reactions.

    • demidaemon

      I can appreciate everything that going on south of the neck, but it’s everything north of the neck that makes me have the same reaction as yours.

  • Joanna

    I hate hate HATE this little hat thing that the stars have been doing where it’s so far back on their heads that you wonder how it stays on. I know that it is apparently supposed to look good, but to me it just looks sooooooo douchey.

  • Gatto Nero

    He looks great. And the hat is for disguise purposes, presumably.

    • BlairBear

      disguising his thinning hair maybe

  • Crystal

    I’m sorry, I know everyone loves him, but he always looks douchey to me.

    • Wink

      Yes, there’s a certain ‘doucheyness’ about him, but somehow he manages to come off as likeable and ‘in on the joke.’

    • Little_Olive

      I kinda have that feeling, but 1) I remembered James Franco and 2) Jude manages to be a bit charming so the douchiness is still under control at acceptable levels.

    • Denise Alden

      I used to think the same thing, but he kind of melted my heart as sad sack Karenin in Anna Karenina.

  • BlairBear

    his hands look a bit full. he might need someone to zip /unzip in the loo. I volunteer

  • MannahattaMamma

    I grant him that douchey hat because his shoes are most excellent.

  • Zuber

    Isn’t it funny that this is a standard look of so many guys here in Europe and some even dress better.

  • Glammie

    Ah, but poor Jude has such seriously thinning hair that he probably didn’t want to put on the sunscreen on his scalp. A hat’s just easier. (Yep, married to one of those.) He still has one of the most beautiful faces of any male actor.

  • Mona_Visa

    He’s looking good. Changing the thumbnail caption to “Jude Law In. Nice.”

  • uprightcitizen

    First, the hat is douchey because it doesn’t fit. Are people taking their hat cues from Ms. Witherspoon now? Johnny Depp’s hat is ridiculous because it has an axe-hole in it, but at least it fits and is worn correctly. Second, hello to those hairy forearms. Can I take you hat shopping, Mr. Law? And then to dinner?

    • ShaoLinKitten

      I too noticed the lovely hairy forearms. Yum.

  • Shlomo

    Men’s hats seem to be unfashionable again. Andrew Garfield’s hat and now Jude Law’s hat were subject to criticism. I keep my head covered as part of Jewish observance. I usually wear an ivy cap, a newsboy cap, or a fedora/pork pie. However, it seems that newsboy caps and fedoras are now hipstery and douchey. Is there a men’s hat that I can wear that communicates a positive and fashionable message?

    • alyce1213

      As I mentioned earlier, I’m partial to Panama hats in summer or warm climates. To me, small fedoras worn on the back of the head can look douchey, every hipster wears one now, but I like your other options.

      • Shlomo

        Thanks, Alyce. I hadn’t thought about a Panama hat! The brim might be too large since I don’t remove my hat indoors. But I guess I could wear a small yarmulke under the Panama & be good to go when I take it off.

    • I like @alyce1213:disqus ‘s idea of the Panama – very classy – but the others will only look hipstery depending on the styling.

    • hyperionic

      No, I don’t think there is. TLo basically hates all hats from what I can tell.

  • bluefish

    Talented Mr. Ripley hat. He looks fabu!

  • LadyVimes

    If you want the “Be You” part, I will happily take over on the “Do You” portion.

  • A Certain Someone

    “Nicely played.” cracked my ass up. Nicely done.

  • marlie

    I think he looks cute, including the hat.

  • kimmeister

    I don’t mind the hat, I mind that most of his pants fit like long johns.

  • joything

    The douchiness that repels me is the half-in-half-out shirt tuck/not. This is so prevalent in fashion catalogs for Western young women, I have torn myself off of mailing lists. Please, Jude, don’t do it. Make up your goddamned mind.

  • Lisalady161

    I love this man what ever he wears (or not) because thighs.

  • Closet Crisis

    I want that bag. That is all.

  • Man Dala

    If there’s someone who can make a douchy hat work, that’s Jude Law. He’s been doing so since his The Talented Mr Ripley days.

  • JynxTheCat

    My forever crush. Hats are not douchey. They are the boy version of yoga hair.

  • Linderella

    I’ve said it many times in many places, but it bears repeating: most gorgeous man ever. Not only sexually, but aesthetically. He’s so beautiful.
    And one hell of an actor: “Dom Hemingway” might just be his career peak. He’s magnetic even when playing a completely reprehensible prick.

  • Cassidy Olsen

    He’s definitely just covering up his receding hairline with the hat, so no fault there

  • Beardslee

    He looks so put together, and I guess I am in the minority that likes hats.

  • Virginia Lee

    This is straight outta Talented Mr. Ripley- so gorgeous.

  • KT

    Heyyyyy Jude

  • Akemi

    He is so douchy and yet so hot and is besties with my imaginary husband Ewan McGregor and so I am constantly conflicted when it comes to this guy. Sigh.
