Jude Law stopped by the English outpost of popular celebrity dining spot The Ivy yesterday, where he was spotted having lunch with actress Ruth Wilson. The pair are costars in the play Anna Christie, which is now running in London. The West End production stars Jude as an Irish sailor and has been garnering rave reviews for both actors. Jude may be taking a break from the movie set in favor of the stage, but his latest film, Contagion, hits theaters on Sept. 9 and will also premiere at the Venice Film Festival this Saturday. The Steven Soderbergh-directed thriller boasts a heavyweight cast that also includes Kate Winslet, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Matt Damon, who was in LA over the weekend for a press day to promote the project. He opened up about working with Steven and his family life as he spoke with reporters. Matt even revealed that his nickname is Red Alert, a moniker his wife has given him for his sweetly protective approach to parenting their three daughters.
