Jude Law Plays A Transvestite Supermodel

Jude Law certainly got in touch with his feminine side for his new role in the upcoming movie, Rage.

The actor plays a transvestite supermodel called Minx in the edgy film, which also stars Dame Judi Dench and Lily Cole as a starlet called Lettuce Leaf.

The film, scheduled for release later this year, is a murder-mystery set in the fashion houses of New York.

Director Sally Potter recently praised Law for his performance, which sees the 36-year-old actor wear a jet black wig and heavy-handed make-up.


Read Potter's blog in which she writes:

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.
