Movie heart-throb Jude Law was part of North London’s hedonistic ‘Primrose Hill set’.
So, imagine the shock among the group when they found out his real name is David Jude Heyworth Law.
‘It just makes it so unsexy,’ says former Hollyoaks star Davinia Taylor, 45, who was a socialite in similar circles.
She played Jude Cunningham in the Channel 4 soap and later named her son after her character.
Davinia adds: ‘People used to say to me, ‘Is he called Jude after Jude Law?’ and I said no, because Jude Law’s actually called Dave’.

She was speaking on the Blethered podcast with Sean McDonald recently when she made the remarks.
It comes as Jude’s former partner Sienna Miller revealed she is expecting her second child by showing off her baby bump while on a beach in Ibiza this week.
The actress, 41, who is already mother to daughter Marlowe, ten, with her ex Tom Sturridge, confirmed she is expecting while on the beach holiday, People reports.
The film star is currently in a relationship with Oli Green, 26, who is 15 years her junior.
The couple confirmed their romance at a Vanity Fair party in February 2022 and have made numerous public appearances since.
Sienna slipped into a tiny bikini and placed her hand on her bump during the outing as she soaked up the Spanish sun.
The Anatomy of a Scandal star took a dip in the sea to cool off before wrapping herself in a large grey towel and drying off.
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Sienna Miller for comment.

The news of Sienna’s pregnancy comes after she revealed she froze her eggs after turning 40.
Speaking to Elle, Sienna told how she often wondered, ‘should I have more [children], and why haven’t I, and all of that, which is a really loud noise’.
She said: ‘Biology is incredibly cruel on women in that decade – that’s the headline, or it certainly was for me.
‘Then I got to 40 and I froze some eggs. Having been really focused on the need to have another baby, I’m just like, if it happens, it happens. That kind of existential threat has dissipated.’
Speaking to The Sunday Times Style Magazine in 2019, Sienna told how she hoped to grow her family in the future.
She said: ‘I would love to have more children. I would love it for my daughter as well. I think I would be open to getting married’.
At the time the star was in a relationship with Lucas Zwirner, but they ultimately parted ways the following year.
Sienna previously told how she felt ‘overwhelmed’ and thought she had ‘failed’ the first stages of parenthood after having Marlowe in 2012.
Reflecting on the difficult time, the actress said she was ‘obsessed’ with Marlowe but at the same time was also in ‘absolute hell’ as she ‘didn’t know what she was doing’.
Sienna revealed that she had a ‘traumatic birth’ with her daughter and felt she had ‘failed’ at the time by not being in a ‘blissful little bubble’.
Speaking on This Morning, she said: ‘I remember when I had Marlowe, yes, people would phone and say, “I’m sure you’re in your blissful little bubble” and I was obsessed with my daughter but I was also in absolute hell.
‘Because you lose 24 hours sleep a week overnight, you spend so much time preparing for the birth and then you have to take the baby home and I didn’t know what I was doing.
‘It was intense, I had a traumatic birth, but the whole thing I felt like I failed at something by not being blissful in the first stages of parenthood.’
The actress wanted a ‘natural water birth’ but instead endured a painful 27-hour long labour which resulted in an urgent caesarean.
More recently, Sienna spoke out about her relationship regrets, saying she previously hoped to be married with three children by her 30s.
The actress said she spent years investing in a relationship with someone who was ‘a bucket with a hole in it of a person’.
She told British Vogue: ‘I’d invested what felt like the important years in something that was just a bucket with a hole in it of a person. I wasted time. And I felt like time was really my currency.’
Sienna was quick to point out she was not referring to daughter Marlowe’s father Tom Sturridge, who she dated from 2011 to 2015.
Prior to her relationship with Tom, Sienna was engaged to fellow actor Jude Law in 2004 after he popped the question on Christmas Day.

He apologised to her in July of the following year for having an affair with the nanny of his children.
Reflecting on her thirties, she added: ‘There was a lot of anxiety. Relationships hadn’t worked out – I imagined that I would be married with three kids, being a great mum. I love being a mother. It’s what I do best.’
Discussing her relationship with Oli, who is 15 years her junior, Sienna added: ‘There’s a misogyny that is ingrained in men of my age and older that I don’t see in [the] generation below’.
Sienna’s ex Tom is now in a relationship with presenter and fashion designer Alexa Chung, with the actress saying she is ‘really happy’ for the couple.
