Rock famously poked fun at the Sherlock Holmes star during the ceremony six years ago by joking he was in "every movie" at the time, after a string of the actor's films including Alfie, The Aviator and I Heart Huckabees were released the year before (04).

The comedian then met Law following the show and feared an altercation would take place - but he credits Love with defusing the situation by scaring Law off.

Rock tells Esquire, "I was sitting with Courtney Love, and she might've saved me from a fight. I'm not going to say a**-whipping... But you never know - he's hanging out with Guy Ritchie. Those guys go at it. Those motherf**kers are in shape. So Jude Law might whip my a**, I don't know. Those guys bring out mats and sh*t... Nothing (happened). Courtney kind of barked, or was growling, and that was it."
