A female photographer named Harsha Gopal is considering pressing charges against actor Jude Law after he allegedly hit her while leaving a central London restaurant. Read more on this story below.
Actor Jude Law struck the 28 year-old woman as she photographed him leaving a celebrity dinner party.
Harsha Gopal said the attack was unprovoked, and said, “He hit me full on the face, it was a real stinger, it was very sore.”
Jude Law had attended the dinner hosted by movie director Christopher Nolan. Law left the restaurant at 1 AM and appeared to move his hand toward Harsha Gopal.
Harsha said, “‘It was really loud – there was a massive thud and my face is still stinging today. It was deliberate – you could see it in his face. Maybe he didn’t realize he was hitting a girl, but he could at least apologize.”
Jude Law’s lawyer Graham Shear said Gopal’s claim was nonsense and stated, “Last night’s incident was an accident. Jude was blinded by the camera flashes when he left the restaurant, raised his hand to shield himself and inadvertently struck somebody standing very close. He apologized and left.”
Harsha is considering pressing charges against Jude, 36.
This wouldn’t be the first time Jude Law had an incident with a photographer. He was arrested after allegedly assaulting a photographer near his Maida Vale home in London in 2007, although he denied the claims and the case was dropped.
