Jude Law accepts damages from Hello! magazine

Jude Law
The magazine has agreed not to print images of his children

Actor Jude Law has accepted damages of £9,500 from Hello! magazine over pictures it published of his children on a beach in the Caribbean.

It has agreed not to publish photos of the actor with his children until they reach the age of 18.

It says it will also not publish images of Law in circumstances where "he has a reasonable expectation of privacy".

Hello! will pay his legal costs as part of the settlement of the breach of privacy action.

The pictures were published in Hello! in January.

Announcing the settlement on its website, his law firm Atkins Thomson said Hello! had "agreed not to publish any photographs of Jude Law together with his children" in situations where they could expect privacy.

Such situations included "at public or private beaches, private sporting events/activities, school events, at or near school or at public or private parks", the statement added.

Law, 37, was recently seen in Guy Ritchie film Sherlock Holmes alongside Robert Downey Jr.

He is also starring alongside Forest Whitaker in thriller Repo Men, due out in the UK later this month.
