LATEST: Grateful Jude Law gave a New York waiter a generous tip recently - because he was so relieved he had let him dine with pal Nicole Kidman in peace.

Beautiful Nicole is rumoured to be the reason behind Jude's split from wife Sadie Frost, although the pair have strongly denied these stories - but the couple enjoyed yet another meal out together recently.

Jude was so relieved their waiter left them alone to finish their meals before asking for an autograph, he left him a $300 (GBP188) tip.

Cold Mountain hunk Jude told the man, "You've waited until our meal was over before asking for that - you're a gentleman."
