Pretty

Jude Law should go for the operation. He looks much better this way.

Yes, it’s for a movie. Sally Potter’s Rage to be specific. Here’s how she describes it:

“Part of the subject matter of RAGE is the ugly use of beauty in the pursuit of profit. Drugged by Marketing, sapped by fear of aging, conned by the cult of celebrity… image becomes all. Jude Law, whose beauty has sometimes been held against him as an actor, made the courageous decision to accept the role of Minx – a ‘celebrity super-model’ and took on a kind of hyper-beauty for this persona… a ‘female’ beauty which gradually unravels as the story unfolds. Strangely, the more he became a ‘she’, coiffed and made-up – the more naked was his performance. There was great strength in his willingness to make himself vulnerable. It was an extraordinarily intense part of the shoot.”

Wait, Jude Law’s beauty’s been held against him? Cause all those ugly English actors get all the breaks? Feh.

Regardless of the inanity of the explanation, it’s a pretty picture. So, here. Enjoy.
