Jude Law is convinced the birth of his lovechild last year made him a man and forced him to grow up.
The Brit became a father for the fourth time in September after Samantha Burke conceived during a brief fling with the actor while he filmed Sherlock Holmes in New York.
Law met little Sophia for the first time last month during a trip to Florida and is said to have agreed a deal with Burke to visit her bi-annually and hand over regular childcare payments.
And the star, who recently rekindled his romance with ex-fiancee Sienna Miller, insists the birth of his daughter made him re-evaluate his relationships – after years of being the “bad boy” with the women in his life.
He tells Britain’s The Sun, “I think women like bad boys. That’s been my experience – I just think it’s kind of a given.
“You know, at a certain age, you figure out what works for you, and being a good boy never worked for me.
“Eventually you have to grow up and realize relationships are hard work. It’s like cultivating anything. They need attention.
“Being a daddy is what counts. My new daughter made me realize that if there’s anything that makes a man of you, it’s having your will broke by a little girl.”
