Revealed at last: Jude Law finally went bare-headed for the first time since October at the Sherlock Holmes: Game Of Shadows premiere in Paris, showing what looks like significant hair loss

He's been covering up with his trademark beanie cap for months.
And finally, we are able to see why.

Jude Law showed up for the Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows premiere in Paris last night displaying what looked like drastic hair loss.

Where's it all gone? Jude looked significantly thinner on top than he did at the Cannes film festival last May (right)

Having refused to bare his head for months, even when pressed during interviews, Jude looked perfectly relaxed doing so last night, grinning alongside Sherlock director Guy Ritchie.

Ritchie arrived in the company of his model girlfriend Jacqui Ainsley, who looked elegant in a simple black dress.

Jude meanwhile was only too happy to mingle with the throng of excited fans who turned up to see him, even appearing to suggest a photo opportunity with some.

The 38-year-old has not been seen without a cap, beanie or smart hat since October, even sporting the look on the red carpet.

Photo opportunity! The star even appeared to suggest taking a snap with some fans

The award winning actor was quizzed on his unusual headgear on Graham Norton's chat show in December.

Despite audience chants of 'off, off' the father-of-four refused to remove his woolly hat, claiming he had a terrible hairstyle which he has to keep for his latest film role.

In demand: Jude's fans certainly didn't seem bothered by his thinning locks

'I’ve been scalped for my new film and I’ve got had the most heinous hair cut you have ever seen,' he explained.

'You’ll see it in a cinema next year.'

The actor has previously denied ever taking measures to tackle his receding hairline, following speculation that he has resorted to implants.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows has performed relatively well after a slightly a disappointing start, which saw it take an estimated $40.2m in ticket sales on the opening weekend.

The original Sherlock Holmes film opened with $62.3million over Christmas weekend in 2009, but the muted performance of the sequel has been attributed to this year's 'austerity Christmas'.
