If you already saw this image, then you know who this is...but if you haven't seen this yet, you might be surprised, just like I was... Give up guessing?
Then, read on...
It's Mr. Jude Law, who supposedly discovered his feminine side playing a transgender supermodel, complete with wig and lots of glamour goo, in his new movie RAGE, a tragicomedy about the effects of globalisation in the age of information. His eyes look hauntingly lovely with all the liner, doncha think?
Director Sally Potter said:
"Jude, whose beauty has sometimes been held against him as an actor, made the courageous decision to accept the role 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."
Part of the subject matter of RAGE is the ugly use of beauty in the pursuit of profit. Seduced by marketing, overtaken with the fear of aging and deceived by the significance society makes of celebrity... image becomes all.
Definitely sounds like a flick we'd want to see...
