Feeling fired up for Fantastic Beasts and Captain Marvel? Us too. Which is why we took it upon ourselves to revisit 11 roles of those films’ shared star, Jude Law, and determine which is the hottest. Is it the robot? The soldier? The Pope?! Read on to find out.
Dumbledore, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018)
Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore has more layers to him than Bertie Botts has bean flavors. He’s brilliant, with blind spots. He’s powerful, with weak spots. He’s cheerful, but has suffered. He is all these things, and so many more. He is not, however, hot. Sorry.
???, Captain Marvel (2019)
We don’t even know his name, but Law has teased that his yellow-eyed “devout warrior” alien character in the upcoming Marvel movie is “unquestioning, conservative, but inspirational.” What on earth (or, more accurately, off it) does that mean? Only time will tell, but in the meantime, a little mystery is pretty hot.
Vortigern, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)
Charlie Hunnam played the real “hero,” here, or whatever, but who doesn’t love a bad guy?
Pope Pius XIII, The Young Pope (2016)
Is it blasphemous to call the Pope hot?
Dan, Closer (2004)
As it turns out, Dan is pretty awful. But that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t also “hey, stranger” him if we happened to see him on a busy street.
Watson, Sherlock Holmes (2009) and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)
Dorky, flustered Watson is so elementary. Isn’t it about time we all graduated to hot Jude Law Watson?
Gigolo Joe, A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)
He’s hot! He’s kind of almost sentient! He’s still a robot, though, so points deducted!
Graham, The Holiday (2006)
Major weeper, cow dad, and Mr. Napkin Head. It’s no wonder Graham softened Amanda’s stone-cold heart enough to make her burst into tears.
Alfie, Alfie (2004)
That rascal Alfie may be a shameless, womanizing operator, but he’s just so charming as he tells us exactly how he does it. How can we resist?
Inman, Cold Mountain (2003)
The mountain may be cold, but lovestruck Confederate Jude Law is so, so hot.
Dickie, The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)
The outrageously beautiful Dickie Greenleaf is the true gold standard, and we’re not just talking about his gleaming, sun-kissed ringlets. Who could blame Tom Ripley for wanting to be him so very desperately?
