OT Your favourite city
Jude Law My favourite city would have to be London. I was born there, I live there, I&rsquove fallen in and out of love with it at times, but of late with a new home, I&rsquove moved into and watching my children growing up here, I love this place.
OT What are the five things you always travel with
Jude Law I&rsquove been advised over the years by people far more intel­ligent and far more seasoned than me to carry a couple of really cool items. One is a bottle of Tabasco, because you can add it to any food and it makes the food taste relatively interesting. The other is a large piece of fabric which you can use as a shawl, or wrap around your head if it&rsquos really hot. I&rsquove used it in the past to carry water when I was on a trek up a mountain. And those are the two things that are very, very useful, believe it or not.
OT Your most memorable hotel experience
Jude Law That&rsquos hard, &rsquocos there are so many different types, aren&rsquot there You stay in little, you know, little garret hotels in cities or you sometimes get to stay on a beach some­where or you stay&hellipI think probably the most exotic was an island hotel in the Philippines which had taken over the whole of this sandbank.
OT Tell us about your role in The Gentleman&rsquos Wager
Jude Law The latest Johnnie Walker Blue Label campaign is a film directed by Jake Scott with myself and with the wonder­ful Giancarlo Giannini. The premise of the film is a man played by myself using a wager with a friend, a mentor, as an excuse to embark on a journey of rare experi­ences and personal progress and also to experience and explore his friendship with this mentor.
OT Where was the film shot
Jude Law The film was shot in St Lucia, Caribbean and in London. We were on a truly unique hand-crafted boat sailing out across a stunning ocean seascape. Working with Jake Scott and Giancarlo was a great experience.
OT For someone who travels a lot, what rare experiences do you still seek out
Jude Law Well, funnily enough, being invited to places like the Johnnie Walker House Beijing, a bar-cum-museum, was pretty extraordinary and meeting someone like Jim Beveridge who is, I think, the only man in the world who knows how to mix these particular blends. Meeting in­dividuals like that, great people who will teach you great things is always something one wants to seek out. As a performer I am always looking for things that will enable me to progress my kind of craft forward.
OT Your dream destination
Jude Law If I were to have to choose a place in the world, well it wouldn&rsquot necessarily be a place. I&rsquom very happy where my family is really, so that can be anywhere.
