Jude Law is a woman

February 4th, 2009 // 51 Comments

Here’s Jude Law as a woman. Here’s the artsy pontificating of why Jude Law is a woman from director Sally Potter’s 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.
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.

So, what’s the big deal here? I give naked performances all the time, and I don’t do it for fame or attention or money. No, way, man. I do it because I drink all day so the Martians in my pants won’t turn me into the government. Now that’s real art. Somebody should put me in a museum.

    Eww.

  2. Rachel

    that is really gay. nasty.

    Hm. He’s still more feminine than V. Beckham.

    Somehow I’m guessing that they missed the mark on the “beauty” aspect of the story. Can someone define “hyper-beauty?” is that apart of the tranny lexicon?

    Jude Law IS a woman. AHA! I knew it!

  6. Chaos

    Hollywood really is rife with deranged perverts. I would imagine that this is considered artistic?

    We are falling harder and faster everyday and there aint nothin gonna stop it. It’s evening time in America

  7. Confuzzled

    haha he looks like my ex gf… oh.

  8. spindoc

    He looks like a guy in a wig…..or the lead singer of “The Waitresses”

    Looking more butch than “Joan Jett” really isn’t the best way to convince us you’re trying to look like a woman.

  10. Right Fury

    We have front row seats to the fall of Rome people. Enjoy the show.

    #6, you’re right. Why can’t Hollywood be more like the David “Diaperman” Vitters, the Larry “Widestance” Craigs, and the Rudy “Constantly in Drag” Giuliani? Ok, strike that last one. The REAL Giuliani has obviously been abducted by librul hollywood aliens and replaced with a tranny clone.

    It will take 30 seconds and I really want her to win! Sorry to use the board for the wrong thing – Jude Law keeps getting weirder.

  13. Whew…I thought I was the only one with Martians in my pants..

  14. Chaos

    Um why do we even need a bigotted homosexual drug laden coterie of perverts influencing our decadent impoverished culture anyway? Why not promote reading instead? Why does the “industry” promote gangsta rap?

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Let’s have a show of hands from those who thinks this movie’s gonna suck. That’s everyone, right? Pretension ain’t intellect, Sally.

  16. #12 – I voted for your pup to lose.

  17. Eddy

    …I actually really want to see if he pulls it off.

    Then again I like movies about drag queens. Its just kind of a nice surprise when someone from the majority culture like Jude Law crosses over and does a minority culture movie so that some people actually have to deal with it.

  18. AteIsEnough

    OMG! I think I fucked that last week!! LOL

  19. AteIsEnough

    Tequilia is EVIL.

  20. Malffy Hernandes

    And yet, another embarrassment for my fellow Brits to be proud of. *sigh

  21. beata

    I’ve seen more beautiful trannies in my day. Jude should stick to the guy look.

  22. Andy

    His tiny penis is a big advantage for him in this role.

  23. Saandy

    The Martians probably walked off with your teenie weenie because they thought it was your tenie weenie brain. Too bad you don’t have one iota of Judes talent looks or brains. Thank god for Jude law he isn’t perfect but he respresents one of the best minds at work , or play, or living and working in
    the movie industry and will shottly be seen on stage starring in HAMLET by
    Shakespeare. Not sure you ever heard ot it because the Martians sucked up
    that part and spit it out because they didn’t know what it was. But we know what you are, groos and stupid.

  24. Chilly

    I’m pretty sure the Martians can’t turn you INTO the government, Fish. They could, however, turn you IN TO the government. But they probably won’t because a party in the pants beats the shit out of a weekend at Area 51.

    Jude Law makes a fugly woman. Ain’t his fault, he’s not all that good looking as a man. OR IS HE???

  25. Ferli

    HOLY COW IS NINA MYERS!

  26. erica

    Work it Jude !

    I want to see this movie. It sound interesting.

  27. erica

    Work it Jude !

    I want to see this movie. It sound interesting.

  28. Mona

    EWWW! What’s wrong with a woman being a woman and a man being a man…Jude is beautiful as a man and ugly as sin as a woman

  29. STINK

    Courageous decision?

    He just wanted to wear girly clothes!

  30. locknload

    I plan to see it. I tend to like actors more as they branch out into unconventional roles. Honestly I find movies like this to be interesting, whether they turn out good or bad. That’s the most I ask out of a movie: make me feel some kind of strong emotion.

  31. EWWWW

    He should stick to his day job.
    He’s quite the nasty lookin’ critter as a woman.
    That flowery effervessence that the director spewed forth actually intrigued me a little, though. But I know better. As a lover of arty-farty movies, this kind of publicity grab promises an horrendous product. I’ll bet this ends up being as “good” as Velvet Goldmine…
    (rent it and writhe)

  32. Wheee

    Oh man… I used to think he was hot… Now I’ll feel wierd about myself ROFL
    Though, he doesn’t really make a convincing woman.

  33. lola

    I don’t know that looks better than most women I see.

  34. justifiable

    #23 “Jude law … will shottly be seen on stage starring in HAMLET by Shakespeare.”

    As opposed to HAMLET by Moe Finkelstein?

  35. sheryl

    I’m looking foward to seeing this. I think Jude looks good in drag and I’m looking forward to seeing what he does in this role, along with the rest of the cast. Sounds like it can’t miss. Of course, I’m not as hypercritical and pretentious as some in my sniffy assessment of something I haven’t even SEEN yet…but someday maybe I’ll learn…I’m still young….I hope I can take my time.

  36. my comment

    English men dressing up like trashy women while their country is being overrun by radical Muslims. HA HA HA

  37. ixnay

    #36 No no no no, it’s BECAUSE the English have a great drag history that radical Muslims are overrunning the country – there’s no one worse in the sack than those guys. Women are just for procreation – when it comes to lust there’s nothing more attractive to Islamic fundamentalists than an infidel man in a size 12 peeptoe pump and an XXL garter belt. Islamic fundies’ idea of Paradise is 74 virgins – because deep in their souls they fear comparison.

    And rightly so.

    Oh, have heard of her name for long. But didn’t know herself. She did a great job in this. I know her affairs are warmly discussed at the ****sugarmingle. c om*** . Many boys love it very much.

  41. Fernando Narcos

    Hahahaha.The comments by the sister fuckers here are hilarious!

    You poor homophobic piles of dung are just pissed this turned your closet fag asses on.Your bungs started twitchin”.so you started bitchin’…

    Nothing is funnier than white American closet queers bashing anything they think is “gay”…

  42. missywiss

    It weirds me the fuck out when a straight guy dresses up in anything meant for a woman. Gay guys, I can deal with. I told my husband if he EVER wanted a divorce, just put on a pair of my skivies. That would be all I needed to know.

  43. anyway: FAGGOTS WILL ADORE HIS PUSSY, folks!!

  44. Ghost

    Who the fuck is Jude Law?

  45. OMG!

    OK .. he makes a VERY UGLY woman! Kinda like a young Phyllis Diller! LOL

  46. Its Judy Law

    XOXO !!

  47. He looks like Sharon Osbourns little sister.

  48. dontlooknow

    THIS is why I don’t go to the movies….

  49. worship diller

    #45, you make a very astute point. He does look like a young Phyllis Diller, with darker hair.
    Props to Phyllis, though- she wasn’t very attractive, she knew it, and that was part of her bit for years.
    Then she had actual DECENT plastic surgery, the way it SHOULD be performed, and she looked fantastic! She was still self deprecating in her act, though. Her act, BTW, which predated Joan Rivers…
    (Speaking of whom, of all the modern WTF plastic surgery trainwrecks, should give Phyllis a call, apologize for stealing parts of her set, beg to find out who her surgeon was, and then give that good Doc a call to see if anything on her scary-ass face can still be salvaged…)
    Phyllis actually STILL looks great. (She’s almost 100!)
    And she is still hilarious.
    Read her book- “Like a Lampshade in a Whorehouse”
    She puts Joan Rivers to SHAME in every way imaginable.
    There, I just had to rant about a wonderful (overlooked) pioneer of women’s comedy…Phyllis Diller…

    Yes, Jude Law makes for an exceptionally nasty female. But maybe the movie will be interesting. I mean, he CAN act. And I’m intrigued by the unhinged ramblings of the director, Sally Potter. (any relation to Harry, Sally? Heh, heh…)

  50. meee

    shit, i think jude law has bigger boobs than i do. that sucks!
