Woman who played Jude Law’s daughter in The Holiday still gets weird comments from ‘gross old men’

The actor who played Jude Law’s daughter in the festive flick The Holiday still receives creepy comments from old men about the role.

Miffy Englefield was just six years old when she appeared on screen as Sophie alongside Law, but now she’s 23 and even has a child of her own. You can see her response to the comments she gets here:

​​Posting on TikTok Englefield – who posts under @miffz_ – wrote: “When gross old men say things like ‘I’m so glad you are still as cute as you were in The Holiday’ to me.

“Relating how I looked as a child to how I look as a grown a** woman makes me all kinds of creeped out idk.” Yep, it’s pretty damn creepy if you ask me.

The Holiday, which was released back in 2006, centred around LA-based movie trailer producer Amanda Woods (played by Cameron Diaz) and Brit columnist Iris Simpkins – with both their lives not exactly going how they’d hoped the pair agree to swap homes for the holidays.

Once in their new, temporary homes, Amanda meets Iris’s handsome brother Graham (played by Jude Law) a widow with two young daughters Sophie (played by Englefield) and Olivia (played by Emma Pritchard – and sparks soon fly.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the Atlantic, Iris finds herself falling for Hollywood film composer Miles Dumont (played by Jack Black). Cue the festive feel good vibes.

Despite the odd weird comment from people old enough to know better, Englefield has previously said it was ‘amazing’ to be a part of the movie.

“Every time it is on telly – and it is a lot – I crack up. It’s on Netflix now too.

“Alex [her partner] thinks it is really funny. He tells everyone. We watched it together but to be honest it makes me want to rip my eyes out. It’s so embarrassing.”

She also revealed what Law was like off-camera and you’ll be pleased to know he’s as lovely as we’d hoped.

She added: “Jude had so much time for us. He was always giving me tips about acting. We would sit and do tongue twisters with him between takes.

“Go back about 10 years when he was in Alfie and yes, to be honest, I probably do fancy him.

“But no, I don’t fancy him in The Holiday – that would be really weird. He played me dad!”
