Jude Law often vacations with ex Sadie Frost for their kids

The couple ended its six-year marriage in 2003, but The Talented Mr. Ripley star reveals the former lovers have an amicable relationship and frequently travel together as a family – with kids Rafferty, 16, Iris, 12, and Rudy, 10.

He tells The New York Times Magazine, “We made a decision very early on that whatever our opinion of each other (is) – which I have to say is a good one – we were going to maintain the function of the family.”

Law also lives close to the actress/designer in London, so shuffling their kids back and forth as part of their custody agreement is as easy as possible – and the British hunk knows he’s lucky to have such flexible visitation rights.

He adds, “I would not have been able to have the usual kind of paternal-role situation of one weekend every two weeks. I enjoy it so much.”
