Jude Law racks up frequent flyer miles

Tbdjude072007 Jude Law, who for years has battled with Sienna Miller, probably took it as no big deal when he decided to travel to eastern Afghanistan to promote the U.N.’s Peace Day, a Sept 21 marker to promote a worldwide day of nonviolence.

The actor pulled a George Clooney and traveled with Brit director Jeremy Gilley and a film crew to interview children, officials and community leaders to draw attention to the occasion. the AP says.

“Afghanistan will be the focal point for the second film, so it seemed important that Jeremy also have a sounding board, a third-party perspective on his trip,” Law told reporters Thursday inside a guarded U.N. compound in Kabul. “This film is about documenting and seeing how Peace Day can save lives.”

The resulting film will be shown in 50 countries and up to 70 international film festivals, and should be much more entertaining than Closer.
