Jude Law is Cross-Dresser Minx

Jude Law is Cross-Dresser Minx

Jude Law cross-dresses as supermodel Minx in his upcoming movie, Rage, out later this year.

Director Sally Potter writes about the vision of her movie on blog: “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.”

She also talks about the 36-year-old British actor as a transvestite: “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.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Jude’s new gender bender look???

  • a total fan

    boogie @ 02/04/2009 at 12:09 am a ha….he’s prettier than angelina jolie

    ______________________________________

    Didn’t take long again to bring in Jolie. It happens everytime. Obsessed much? Its funny how no matter who the thread is about someone always has to compare them to Jolie. Funny how haters always try to bring Jolie down with the comparisons. Why not use Jen to say how a gorgeous woman should look instead?

  • mery

    Incredible!

    I want to see this movie!

  • Jennie

    wow finally someone made a movie about this!!! :D i am SO seeing it. and jude law…idk…makes a pretty girl too?

  • Deana

    Yuck. Jude sooo doesn’t have the range to play a part like this and I think he’s going to embarrass himself big time. I’m cringing already!

    I have the nerve to bet that aroun 85 percent of his fans are homo-sexuals, folks!!

  • Fourplay

    WOw!!!!!!!!

  • Sandy

    Since they announced he was playing “minx/ I have been waiting to see if my gut thought about that name was true. This is so Jude, if it
    intriques he he will play anying that’s different from the last character
    he played to get contrast and to show his range which is far-flung and
    his best work is always the most unusual characters, That’s ACTING!
    Of course, he can be the charming person he normally is and a beauty
    to boot which he normally is but I am now dying to see this movie
    because I don[t kow if he is playing a woman or cross-dressing or……I guess I will have to wait until the film comes out. But even ahead of time I will say “Bravo Jude, way to go!!!” On the ball again
    jared, THanks, This news made my day yesterday. This is a terrific
    year for Jude, IMAGEINARIUM Sept 24 and SHERLOCK Nov. 13 and
    HAMLET onstqage from May through AUgust and release for RAGE
    stated here for later this year (probably during the HAMLET run) WOW

  • Pretty

    He’s prettier than Daniel Craig’s fugly gf!!

  • Liesbeth

    Respect to Jude.
    I can’t wait to see this movie!!

    GO JUDE!

  • ri23

    What a pretty man lady. It’s an upgrade for Jude.

  • dolorescraeg

    i always thought jude was more beautiful than any of his leading ladies…well this prooves it…he is a real risk taker. believe me very few actors would take on a role like this. the director sally potter couldn’t get over the fact that jude would undertake such a risky role. i simply cannot wait to see his performance.
    jude ….wearing your tight jeans, a tuxedo or the above you are the one actor that fills my heart.

  • britbeck

    He’s talented. Luv himm sooo… oopss now have to say love her soo ^o^

  • purpleworm

    Dude knows how to take a risk, I’ll say that much. Still I prefer the stubbly, hairy, testosterone version of him, no matter what.

    Thanks for keeping up the Jude-Love, Jared.

  • purpleworm

    p.s. I wonder how they’ll cover his arms in the film? He’s got some damn fine man arms; there’s nothing super-modelish about them!

  • MARCHARE

    GORGEOUS AS HELL

  • Sara

    Loooooooooooove Juuuuuuuuuuuuuude!

    Thanks Jared!!

  • Sandy

    It’s one thing to do a woman when she doesn’t have to be a glamourpus like Hoffman and TOOTSIE or RObin Williams and MRS>
    DOUBTFIRE but Jude is a SUPERMODEL for crissakes and that
    is not easy. But he is very slim and with artful arranging of stoles,
    sweaters and clothes with sweeping sleeves it’s possible to create
    the illusion and i/m sure everything that is supposed to go with it ‘(Voice, skin and makeup does (remember AI) we have always said
    he is a chameleon and here is but another stunning example of what
    it means to be a real actor. (He can also acheive wonderful result s without the makeup etc. because he is a consummate actor.It’s
    wonderful Jude, never change – the daring things you do generally pay
    off in the end.

  • Nicole

    woow!he actually looks really good!
    for a second i didn´t even recognize him i also thought it was some girl
    he is a pretty girl hahahaha
    love him!!!

  • merlina

    jude law is one of the most gifted actors of his generation. he can play anything as shown by the variety of roles he has done so well…his range is limitless that he can do something as challenging as Caligula nd as charismatic as the guy in the movie the Holiday with cameron diaz…I am in awe of this great actor, one of the best British actors of all time…

  • Freddie

    Hey it’s a brave thing to do something like that knowing that everyone was going to talk crap about him. A lot of actors I see wouldn’t do that.

  • who?

    I WOULD DO HIM / HER ANY OTHER WAY !

  • dolorescraeg

    #45….so would millions of jude fans all around the world. this guy is unvelievable. he is the consumate risk taker…i love that side of him….he’s probably going to get zillions of offers from modeling agencies….it’s funny…in sherlock holmes with robert downey he’s dr. watson with moustache and sideburns…whoever said variety is the spice of life must have had jude law in mind….what a guy…. thanks jared…you’re on the ball.

  • Pole

    I was a bit ok, whatever about this movie – but WOW, now it’s a must-see :-D I think it sounds like a very interesting project and I love the diversity of Jude’s acting choices. It’s great to see him try out his talent itstead of just doing the same sort of role over and over again. Go Jude!

    And thanks for the Jude-post Jared :-D

  • http://www.crookedbrook.com/custom-embroidered-hooded-sweatshirts-hoodies.htm Hoodie
