Hollywood hunk Jude Law has started to enjoy his life, after being told to lighten up by movie legends Paul Newman and Dustin Hoffman.

The COLD MOUNTAIN star - who recently divorced the mother of his three children SADIE FROST - now makes more than his usual one film per year, after the acting heavyweights advised him to appreciate his profession more.

Jude, 30, says, "They told me, 'Look, you're in a fantastic position and in a wonderful profession.'

"They said I should enjoy it. 'Stop beating yourself up. It's a good life. You don't have to be a nine-to-five parent to be a good parent. Your kids can enjoy a life with you making films.'

"And that took a huge burden off my shoulders."
