It is given for what you have done as an actor and what you represent in the world of cinema and, in a way, maybe more importantly for what you are as a human being."Jude attended the ceremony with his parents, Peter and Maggie - who divide their time between London and the South of France. Director Anthony Minghella, who worked with Jude on the critically acclaimed 'Cold Mountain', was also present.France presents Order of Arts and Letters award to French nationals and foreigners who have significantly contributed to the country's cultural inheritance.
