London (ANI): Brit actor Jude Law has revealed that he used to regret changing his name from David, as he was often mistaken for a girl with his current name. The actor, who was born David Law, began using his famous moniker as a stage name when he enrolled with a youth drama group in London in the 1980s. And Law admits he had to toughen up - because his feminine name would often lead to confusion.
“(I was) assigned to the girls" dormitories and sleeping quarters when I was a teenager and I joined the National Youth Music Theatre," the Daily Express quoted him as saying. “Someone took a look at my name and clearly thought, 'It has to be a girl." How wrong can you get?" he added.
