Jude Law and Sadie Frost were mainstays of the Primrose Hill set of actors, models and musicians that became a byword for Nineties hedonism with their drink and drugs parties, bed-hopping and alleged wife-swapping.
Now, their daughter, Iris Law, is making her own mark on the capital’s social scene.
By the time he was 30, Law had three children and 17 films to his name and was widely considered to be one of the most bankable film stars in the world.
Whereas a few years ago we might have known everything about it – where and how it was marked, who was there, eating what food – it now passed quietly, and without public comment.
For 11 months earlier, Law had accepted £130,000 from the publisher of the recently defunct News of the World in compensation for years of intrusion by the newspaper into his private life.
Unfortunately for Law, this has often meant that the public has overlooked his professional achievements during the past decade – 23 further films, not to mention a critically acclaimed return to the stage (for which he was nominated for two Olivier Awards and a Tony Award).
He has also used his public profile to positive effect with his charitable work.
