Jude Law's son could be his twin

Who's that dapper gent with the steel gaze, chiseled jawline, and just-off-the-beach complexion? Why that's Rafferty Law, the eldest son of Jude Law and Sadie Frost. He's truly a chip off of the old block — at least, physically. He may look just like his father, but it's pretty clear that he marches to the beat of his own drum. The young Law, who prefers to be called "Raff," has been popping up in the headlines for several years now due to his artistic endeavors. His model good looks help, too, as he's certainly easy on the eyes.

So what's Raff been up to now that he's old enough to buy a beer when he's stateside? Does he have big plans for the future or is he just living in the moment? Does he get along with his (now divorced) parents or has he fled the nest for good? Here's what we know about Raff Law, who really could be his father's twin.

He knows he was a difficult child

Just because you're the son of posh celebs doesn't mean your family life is magical all the time. In fact, Law knows he wasn't the world's easiest kid to raise. "I was pretty naughty. Very loud," he shared in an interview with the London Evening Standard. He also admits that he took up a lot of space, and even slept in his parents' bed until he turned six. "They say they lost their social life for about five years," he continued. "They'd spend hours trying to get me to sleep, and by the time they came downstairs, their friends would all have left." Ah, the magic of parenting.

As he got older, the tables turned as the parents interfered with their son's social life — Law found his parents quite embarrassing. "I used to hate it when my parents danced. My dad dancing? And my mum? It's like the worst thing," he revealed. But since he's grown up, he feels differently. "So I'm past that stage now. They can't really embarrass me any more," he said. We guess they're even!

School just wasn't his thing

It's no secret that Law is a super creative person, but that wasn't something he developed in school. In fact, he didn't like school in general, so he never tried very hard to excel. "I've never been that hard-working, just enough to get by," he told the London Evening StandardBut that didn't mean he could just slack off, or stop going altogether. Law had to get good grades in order to appease his parents, who told him he could do his "own thing" as long as he met the standards they set.

It's also no secret that Law isn't crazy about authority, either. "I don't like being told what to do a lot of the time. That's why boarding school didn't go so well with me," he continued. "I'll conform if I respect my teacher, but if a teacher is rude to me, I'll say something back to them." Sounds like he was quite the cheeky schoolboy. 

He felt pressured to be an actor

It's not surprising that Law felt pressured to go into acting, and that people expected him be naturally good at it. He's Jude Law's son, after all, and everyone knows how amazing his father is on stage and screen. So, Raff decided to give it a shot. "I did a lot of school plays at school, but it was never really like my thing," he shared in an interview with Adidas. Sounds like his acting career wasn't meant to last very long.

But people still had expectation for him. "In my drama lesson, I think everyone thought: 'Oh God, he's going to be so brilliant,'" he told the London Evening Standard. "Then they realised that I wasn't that good, so they just let me get on with it." Oh well. Perhaps one of his younger siblings will pick up their father's thespian mantle one day, as it's clearly not Raff's cup of tea.

Mom and dad were huge influences on him

Unlike some celeb kids, Law inherited a lot more than fame and good looks from his parents. "Having creative parents has made me be a very creative person myself," he said an interview with Adidas. "I got brought up around art, good music, and obviously, like, some film sets." So that explains why he has such a creative and independent spirit.

Law also admits that he owes his taste in music to his parents as well. "I've always loved music, and that's been heavily influenced by my dad and mom playing me wicked music from the age of like, whatever, since I can remember," he continued. So what are his specific faves? "I grew up listening to a lot of Beatles, I was a big fan of Nirvana. I definitely feel like the nineties have had an influence on me," he noted. Additionally, he told the London Daily Standard, "My dad took me to my first ever gig in New Orleans when I was seven: Robert Plant from Led Zeppelin." Go big or go home, right?

A bit of a bad boy

When asked to describe himself in three words by V Man magazine, Law summed it up: "Bad and boujee." That's pretty spot-on for a wealthy kid from a famous family — who also happens to have a bit of a wild streak. For one, Law doesn't hide that he smokes cigarettes, which you can see on his Instagram page. He's no teetotaler either, as is evidenced by other posts. And if you hang with his crew, you're invited to "smoke up, drink up, alla dat," according to another post he made. Obviously he likes to party!

You have to wonder if any of this rebellious behavior worries his parents. Indeed, there have been rumors among the press that the elder Law shared his concerns with Raff's godfather, Jonny Lee Miller, according to the London Evening Standard. But Miller's alleged response was, "Jude. You were a maniac at 17. He's a carbon copy of you." What's that they say about the apple and the tree, again?

Jet-setting to the catwalk

What do you do if you're the naturally gorgeous offspring of famous people? Why, model of course — which is exactly what Law has been doing. He made his debut on the the runway in London when he was only 17, according to Grazia Daily. And ever since then, he's kept quite busy with his modeling career, doing everything from magazine shoots for Vogue magazine to repping Dolce & Gabbana on the catwalk, according to his modeling profile. Looks like Law has gotten quite comfortable in front of the camera!

Law often posts pictures from his modeling exploits on his Instagram page, if you're curious. For example, catch two of his looks from the runway for D&G here, looking like a bad boy in one getup, and totally formal in another. Catch this behind-the-scenes shot from a Tommy Hilfiger shoot here, and check him out repping Hugo Boss here. Clearly young Raff is in seriously high demand.

He's in love and doesn't care who knows it

Law has not been shy about his romance with the model-gorgeous Clementine Linares. Both Linares and Law have shared some pretty intimate moments on their Instagram pages, showing off just how cute they are together. Check out this adorable series of photos Linares posted of Law snoozing in multiple settings. "You really do make my life more bright + I will forever love you for that," she wrote, wishing him a happy birthday. Law also wished Linares happy birthday in a post that he made, telling her, "You make everything worthwhile and always give me strength." Awww.

The pair have also posted photos of them jetsetting to exotic locales together — a wealthy models tend to do. Perhaps more exciting is that they recently got a place together in London, according to a post Linares made. "Not long now till our dream comes reality," she wrote in the caption. Is there anything sweeter than young love?

Music is his everything

In an interview with Adidas, Law describes himself as a musician out of the gate, which shows just how important music is to his identity. "I'm currently working on my music and DJing around London," he replied, when they asked what he was up to.

Law doesn't just hit some buttons and call it a day, either. "I play a bit of everything. I play guitar, piano, drums, bass, keyboard, singing's my main thing," he continued. Super impressive, especially given how young he is.

Law used to be in a band called The Dirty Harrys along with his friend Marley Mackey — who just so happens to be the son of the bassist of brit-rock legends Pulp, according to the London Evening StandardBut these days, he's focused more on collaboration. "I'm kind of, just like, writing with a lot of musicians," he continued. That includes contributing choruses to rap songs, producing music, and networking in any way that he can. Law has released some solo singles as well, which he announced in an Instagram post.

"Something to Hate On"

Arguably the most exciting thing that Law has been a part of is the creative collective he co-founded with Daniel Mould and Max Clarke: Something to Hate On. In an interview with i-D, the collective shared some insight about their mission. "It's a creative platform to showcase and celebrate London's youth and underground culture," they said. They also noted that they planned to turn it into a record label as well, so Law could release music and find musicians to work with — which happened in late 2017, according to a post Law made on Instagram.

The idea to form a collective came about in 2016, when the group wanted to harness the creative energy of artists they met at parties, according to Dazed. Since then, they have grown, and have hosted all kinds of exhibitions and events, which Law shares on Instagram on the reg.

So what's in a name? The collective acknowledges that in the age of social media, no one escapes haters. "As a collective of talented artists who all get their fair share of hate, the name is really embracing that," they told i-D. No lies detected!
