Quirky star Angelina Jolie has ordered the British press to give troubled actor Jude Law a break.

The Tomb Raider actress has known Jude ever since she wed his pal Jonny LEE MILLER in 1995 and thinks the media furore over Law's split from wife SADIE Frost is unjustified.

Jolie, who stars alongside Law and Gwyneth Paltrow in next year's (04) WORLD OF TOMORROW, says, "Lay off him, he's a good guy. I've known Jude for years. He was standing next to my first husband when I got married, so he's an old friend and I'm happy to finally work with him.

"It's horrible what he's going through. He's a good guy and a great father."
