New Delhi, July 18 : English actor Jude Law and actress Lily Cole never had a normal start to their romance, with their love having blossomed only after they were discussing their movie roles.
The 20-year-old model met the 'Alfie' star when they both were working on their new movie 'The Imaginarium Of Dr. Parnassus'.
"Lily respects Jude and asks his advice on acting projects and techniques. It's all quite thespian and serious craft talk," China Daily quoted a friend of Cole's as revealing to Britain's Grazia magazine.
"They also discuss charity work a lot. Lily is determined to put her fame to good use and Jude likes that about her.
"They talk quite a bit about how they can help with green issues and poverty in war-torn areas," her friend said.
But there are opposing views to the relationship, with a friend of Law's stating that the actor is not at all serious about the new romance.
"I get the feeling Jude doesn't necessarily want anything too serious." The source said.
"That said, he's very impressed by Lily's intelligence," the source added.
Jude and Lily, who is set to begin a degree in social and political sciences at Britain's prestigious Cambridge University, first sparked rumours that they were dating late last month, when they were seen enjoying a 'Radiohead' concert in London together.
The following week, Lily was spotted leaving the actor's West London home after spending the previous evening with him.
