Jude Law hired a male model to perform his sex scenes in upcoming film Alfie, because he thought the hunk had a better body.

The star chose fellow Brit GAVIN DIXON to be his stand-in during raunchy scenes in the forthcoming remake of Michael Caine's classic film.

And Gavin loved his first break in movies, because he got to romp with a bevy of beauties including sexy actress Nia Long.

Gavin, 23, says, "I still can't believe it has happened. I had to romp with two of the most beautiful girls in the world - and I got paid for it. I knew nothing about it until I got a call from an agent saying I was in line for a role in this movie. I was really surprised because I've never acted before.

"But they told me Jude Law wanted a body double and I was in the running. He came in and had the final say. He was impressed with my six-pack and decided to go for me.

"I'm more toned than him and he wanted to look muscle-bound on screen.

"I had to make love to Nia on a pool table. It was amazing. Then I got to have it away with another gorgeous actress.

"Jude's character and her ended up having sex on the masseur's table. It was fantastic. I can't thank Jude enough."
