Jude Law sparked a security alert when he decided to pop by the Odeon cinema in Bath yesterday (September 13).

He had come to watch Kathryn Bigelow's awards contender Detroit and, understandably, was hoping to remain under the radar, so decided to wear a hoodie. The only problem was that it led to the cinema's manager thinking he was "acting suspiciously".

Cinema attendant Connor Walter relayed the whole bizarre story to BBC News and said that, fortunately, he recognised Jude straightaway.

"The man spent a good 10 minutes just standing around on the phone, then he came and bought a ticket from one of my colleagues, and my colleague who served him the ticket did not recognise him, nobody did," he explained.

"Then he came to the bottom of the stairs and I tore his ticket, I looked at his eyes and recognised him, then he said 'thanks' and I just knew it was him within an instant."

Connor said that he waited until after the movie had finished to ask for a photo and even wrote the actor a "kind note", which Jude responded to in an email later on and apologised for running off.

"If I had not been working that night, nobody else would have recognised him as he was very unrecognisable with his black hoodie and beard," Connor added.

Jude is thought to currently be filming Fantastic Beasts 2 in nearby Lacock, Wiltshire, with him playing a young Albus Dumbledore in the fantasy sequel, which he's confessed to having "an element of fear" about.

We've no idea what he thought of Detroit though...

Fantastic Beasts 2 is released in cinemas on November 16, 2018.
