Jude Law's Son Looks Exactly Like Him in a New "GQ" Shoot

"My dad's my best mate; he and I have always been so close," 24-year-old Rafferty said.

Twenty-four-year-old Rafferty Law is starting to emerge from his father's shadow with a modeling, music, and acting career—but that doesn't mean he doesn't still look like him. In a brand-new photoshoot and feature for British GQ, you can really see how much Jude Law's son resembles him, other than the curly hair, that is.

Rafferty—AKA Raff—is the cover star for GQ Hype, and in his new feature, he talks about his famous dad, following in his acting footsteps, and, of course, the similarities in the way they look. "There's that comparison all the time and I find it quite funny, because obviously we're going to look quite similar—he's my dad," Rafferty told the magazine.

At only 24 years old, Rafferty had already done a little bit of everything in his career. He has modeled for several years now, including for DKNY and Hugo Boss, and is signed to IMG Models. He's also in a band called Outer Stella Overdrive, but right now, he's focusing on acting. As the GQ feature notes, Rafferty stars in the British film Twist, which is a modern take on Oliver Twist. He plays Ollie Twist, a graffiti artist. The movie co-stars Michael Caine, Rita Ora, and Lena Headey.

It sounds like Rafferty and Jude have a great relationship, whether Jude is helping his son with scripts or encouraging his love of sneakers.

"My dad's my best mate; he and I have always been so close," Rafferty told British GQ. "Like any father and son, growing up I looked up to my dad a lot. I've always liked the way he dresses—he loves trainers, so that got me into trainers from a young age. He likes good music and that got me into the same."

Rafferty's mother is Sadie Frost, who is also in the entertainment business as an actor and producer. According to Rafferty, his parents never tried to sway him one way or the other when it came to him wanting to act.

"I don't think they felt strongly either way," he told British GQ. "They've been watching me in school plays since I was five and it's always been something I've loved doing, as well as music and writing, so they've been very supportive of me and my siblings following our passions and dreams. For them, if you work hard at something, the rewards pay off."

Rafferty has five siblings, ranging from a few months old to 20 years. His 20-year-old sister, Iris Law, is a working model. Iris has worked with big luxury brands like Fendi, Miu Miu, and Burberry. In addition to Iris and Rafferty, there's 18-year-old Rudy. Then, Jude also has three other children: an 11-year-old named Sophia with Samantha Burke, a 5-year-old named Ada with Catherine Harding, and a new baby, whose name has not been revealed, with his current wife Phillipa Coan.

Rafferty reflected on his big family in the GQ interview, saying, "The pandemic taught me that although I love the social, rat race aspect of London, being out, going places and seeing people all the time, I'm really lucky to have such a tight-knit family that supports each other. No matter what happens, if you have that, you feel happy."
