Making it in Tinseltown, while also maintaining your artistic integrity, is a difficult balancing act. It is one that Jude has managed, however, and he is now reaping the rewards of being a bona-fide star. His paycheque for The Talented Mr Ripley was just over 400,000, but that figure has been rising steadily with each movie he makes. The actor was paid just over 4 million for Alfie, while Closer netted him 5 million.

In terms of box office clout, he isn't in quite the same league as the Tom Cruises and Russell Crowes of this world. But then again, the softly-spoken Londoner has never expressed any desire to be.
