Jude lays down the Law with curious college students

November 20, 2009 |  1:43 pm

Jude Jude Law is no stranger to captive audiences; he's just a little miffed when the stage is his living room.

The New York Post reports that the Manhattan pad Law is occupying while he stars in "Hamlet" on Broadway is next to New York University's freshman dorm -- and that the actor is causing a frenzy every time he steps onto his balcony.

Students keep binoculars handy for Law's yoga sessions or playtime with his kids. Strangely, he doesn't return the sentiment. The "Cold Mountain" actor would prefer a little privacy -- and has gone so far as hurling fruit at NYU windows.

"We couldn't believe it when the orange hit the window," said dorm-dweller Kaitlin Coari, "I'm supposed to go see 'Hamlet' with my sister this Saturday. It's awkward -- I should bring some oranges, I guess."
