Gaslighting

Jude Law denies early career twink status and the gays are not having it

In a recent interview with DuJour magazine, Jude Law confessed that he felt he didn’t he didn’t “lean in” to playing sexy roles in his early career. This is news to absolutely everyone who swooned to the actor’s twinktastic performances in queer films such as The Talented Mr. Ripley, Sleuth, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and Wilde, in which he played Oscar Wilde’s evil boyfriend Bosie Douglas.

“I didn’t feel like I really ever leaned into playing handsome,” Law said, “but there were roles that required an attractive energy.”

Yes, “attractive energy”…aka the thing you give out when you have a literally perfect face and body.

Needless to say, fans and queer folks who experienced seminal moments of horniness on viewing Law’s early performances beg to differ. In the late 90s and early 2000s, the handsome was everywhere, and it was unstoppable.

The gays simply aren’t having this self-erasure on Law’s part. We won’t forget Dickie Greenleaf, and you can’t make us!

We appreciate the sentiment, because every hot actor can afford to bring more demon twink energy to the screen, but come on, Jude. This is gaslighting, plain and simple!

Come on now…

The people won’t be lied to!

This man played a robot sex worker in A.I. and he’s still not satisfied!

Is Jude Law living on Planet Nonsense? Because make it make sense.

Enough of this self-slander, Jude! Now go back to doing what you do best: being a beautiful, delicious icon of gay cinema.
