But, his work as a supporting actor was much appreciated in 1997 in Gattaca, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and Wilde (a biopic), even though the movies did only mediocre business at the box office. It was in 1997 when he married Sadie Frost, whom he had shared screen space in his British debut film Shopping in 1994, which had poor reception. They have three children together. But the couple parted ways in 2003.

Recently in 2015, he fathered his fifth child with Catherine Harding, with whom he was “no longer in a relationship”. In the year, 1997, Law received a nomination for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his playboy role as Dickie Greenleaf in the Talented Mr. Ripley. Again in 2004, he received an Academy Award nomination for his work in Cold Mountain opposite Nicole Kidman. After 28 years of the business and work with artists like Kate Winslet, Robert Downey Jr., Sir Paul McCartney and Keira Knightley and delivering movies like Wilde, AI- Artificial Intelligence, The Aviator, Sherlock Holmes and Anna Karenina, Law continues to do theatre. Law has won the Critic’s Circle Theatre Award (2010) and Theatre World Award (1995) and was nominated for Tony Award and Lawrence Oliver Award multiple numbers of times.
