No wonder he looks so fresh!
Jude Law may get headaches, but considering that he was brought up in a home where he was not allowed to take painkillers, he has NEVER in his life treated his pains with drugs.
The Side Effects actor revealed:
"I grew up in a family where I didn't even get headache tablets. My mother wasn't a health freak, but she had strong principles. In the 70s, that was just becoming popular: we shouldn't eat this and that, or not watch TV that much. And a dislike of painkillers and pills was a part of it."
And even though he admitted that he grew up in a very loving home, Jude said that his family had a very "martyr-like north English attitude," which meant that he wasn't allowed to complain, he said:
”They loved me very, very much. In England, we call that 'tough love'. I just have no relation to medicine and until now, I have been lucky not to need them for emotional or psychological reasons - fingers crossed!”
We're glad that Law is chemical free because sometimes drugs are just not the way to go, but hey, a little aspirin has never done anyone any harm!!
