Jude Law and Gael Garcia Bernal: Two of my favorite actors.
But what makes me write about them in this same piece?
Well, I think they both are grossly underrated as actors just because they also happen to be 'gorgeous', or as many would say 'unbearably handsome'!
Beautiful men have always had a problem in gaining a wider acceptance, and Jude & Gael Garcia are not just good looking men, they are beautiful! Most consider beauty to be a an asset only for women, whose beauty has been the object of men's desires and subject of treatises too. However, with the turn of the century, men endowed with beautiful features, notably facial, is finally gaining social acceptance, with the concept of metrosexuality and some such terms being thrown at us commonly by the media.
Jude Law and Gael Garcia Bernal have both proved their worth as versatile actors in umpteen films. Yet it is either their unabashed sexual charm or the nudity that they have so confidently embraced for the sake of credible portrayal of characters that gets written about or talked about at large! They have both received the much critical acclaim for many of their film roles, and have wide fan-following too, but the mainstream media have often been not so generous to give them their due!
Jude Law, is a thoroughbred English lad, born December 29, 1972. Whereas Gael Garcia Bernal is Mexican, born November 30, 1978, though he can speak English quite well, as he had studied acting in London after having begun his acting career as a child on stage. Both Jude and Gael Garcia have had rich experiences on stage, both have acted in plays.
I re-assert that their skills as actor defy boundaries. I have not seen all their films, but just as many as I could, so here I include a listing of the films that I have seen from the extensive filmography of both the actors.
