Several celeb blogs have posted the photo, which shows the actor as he appears to get dressed (or undressed). Law's rep, Simon Halls, refused to discuss the photos with the New York Post, saying: "Oh please! The guy is on vacation in France with his kids. People need to give him a little bit of a break."
Meanwhile, Law's recent troubles – including having an affair with his kids' nanny while engaged to actress Sienna Miller – has done little to dull the star's image in a recent poll.
British movie goers have voted the Alfie star's bottom as the sexiest onscreen, according to reports from the U.K. Law's tush trumped those belonging to Brad Pitt and, way down on the Top 10 list, Tom Cruise.
Because the 1,000 fans polled chose Jude for his nude bath scene in The Talented Mr. Ripley – a 6-year-old movie – obviously the image of his behind has staying power.
Pitt got his second-place nod for his role as Achilles in last summer's Greek epic Troy. In third place – and emerging as the top female bottom – was Scarlett Johansson's rear view in the opening scenes of 2003's Lost In Translation.
In the classics division, Marilyn Monroe also made the list, which was compiled by Odeon cinemas to mark the launch of its new, extra-wide seats.
The Top 10 Tushes at the Movies:
1. Jude Law, in The Talented Mr. Ripley
2. Brad Pitt, in Troy
3. Scarlett Johansson, Lost In Translation
4. Cuba Gooding Jr., Jerry Maguire
5. Sienna Miller, Alfie
6. Ryan Phillippe, Cruel Intentions
7. Tom Cruise, Top Gun
8. Marilyn Monroe, The Seven-Year Itch
9. Ewan McGregor, Velvet Goldmine
10. Renee Zellweger, Bridget Jones's Diary
