Jude Law dons wig and make-up for latest role
The Cold Mountain actor took on the character for upcoming movie Rage, a murder mystery set amidst New York's fashion scene.
Law will model full make-up and a black rock chick-style wig for the film, which also stars real life model Lily Cole and Judi Dench.
Director Sally Potter has praised "courageous" Jude for taking on the challenge, adding: "Strangely, the more he became a 'she', coiffed and made-up, the more naked his performance."
The film is made up of a series of interviews with characters, shot by a young blogger Michelangelo who is behind the scenes at a New York fashion house as designers prepare for the show.
When a murder takes place, the footage is used as evidence.
The movie will premiere at the Berlin International Film Festival later this month.
Law will also be seen in Sherlock Holmes, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and Repossession of Rambo in the coming year.
