Welcome to the Jude Law Is Handsome World, Jude Law. It's about time.
After having to put on weight and shaving his head for a role, it put him in perspective about his normal looks. Which are great, because he's a handsome and famous celebrity, as it turns out!
"It was a joyous role to take on. Because I am at a stage in my life where I'm panicking a bit. 'Ooh, am I going a bit bald? Am I getting a bit (fat)?' You can't help doing that in your late 30s, can you? When you realise you are no longer the 21 year old you used to be. So playing someone who was letting it all go was really liberating. And actually - even better than that - now that I've lost the weight and my receding hairline isn't quite as bad as we made it look for the part, I can look in the mirror and think, 'Oh it's not that bad! I'm still looking alright, actually!'"
Congrats, we guess??
You've always been handsome — but it's kind of a shame that it took a walk on the side of what society thinks ISN'T handsome for you to realize it. We submit that maybe there was even something attractive about you with the weight and the shaved head, but that was before these ridic comments!
