On Friday we learned that actor Jude Law got a bit angry with some college kids at New York University after he discovered that they were spying on him as he tried to enjoy some alonetime on his the balcony of his new NY apartment (which is right next to the dorms at NYU). To express his anger, Law began hurtling oranges at the nosy coeds … which didn’t really do anything other than make them more interested in watching. The fine folks at the New York Post got in touch with some of the NYU kids and managed to get some of their fun photos of Jude’s balcony time … behold:
When Jude Law moved in next door to an NYU freshman dorm, he didn’t realize he’d be giving away front-row seats to every performance — and he’s hardly pleased with his “audience.” Star-struck students say they race to their dorm windows whenever the actor sets foot on his Washington Square balcony, as seen above in photos taken by one of the kids. “There is pretty much chaos on every floor when he comes out,” said Priya Vij, 18, who has a direct view of Law’s balcony from her Hayden Hall window. “People start screaming, ‘Hey, Jude’ — and it’s clear he can hear us.” Erica Rose, 18, keeps a pair of binoculars at the ready. “We have the best view on the floor,” she said. “It is exciting to have a celebrity living right next to you. He is really attractive. He’s rugged and scruffy.” The star of Broadway’s “Hamlet,” who uses the balcony to play with his son and work out with his personal trainer, apparently does not appreciate the attention. In Shakespeare’s day, audience members heckled actors by hurling rotten fruit. But a few weeks ago, when Law’s yoga session was interrupted, the fruit flew in the opposite direction. “He noticed we were there and we started waving at him. Then he went inside and came back with two oranges,” freshman Neha Najeeb told The Post. “He threw them at our window, but he missed.” Law then went back inside and returned with two additional oranges, she said. “This time, he hit the windows — there was orange pulp on the glass for a week — and then he went back to working out,” she said. “Now we don’t like Jude Law anymore.” Law couldn’t be reached for comment. Naheeb’s roommate, Kaitlin Coari, said Law should stick to throwing the slings and arrows of his “Hamlet” role instead of produce. “We couldn’t believe it when the orange hit the window,” she said. “I’m supposed to go see ‘Hamlet’ with my sister this Saturday. It’s awkward — I should bring some oranges, I guess.”
LOL!! I mean … yes, it’s terrible that these naughty kids keep spying on poor Jude Law when all he wants to do is workout on his balcony, it’s a horrible invasion of privacy but … damn, it’s funny as hell. Two things … first, I bet Jude has already bitched out whoever it was that found his apartment for him and failed to realize that it’s right next to the NYU dorms and second, I suspect that he won’t be staying there for much longer. Either he’s gonna get the hell out of there and find a different apartment with a more private balcony … or he’s gonna hafta get used to being on display in his new NY apartment every single day. It’s tough being a celeb, ain’t it?
