Jude Law: The world is ready for a gay children’s icon

Ella Braidwood November 16, 2018

of the series 'The Young Pope' speaks onstage during the HBO portion of the 2017 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour at the Langham Hotel on January 14, 2017 in Pasadena, California.

Actor Jude Law has said the world is “ready” for a gay children’s icon (and, if it isn’t, it “it bloody well should be”).

Speaking to The New York Times, Law also addressed Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald director David Yates’ comments that Albus Dumbledore would not be “explicitly” gay in the movie.

Law, who plays Dumbledore in the movie, told the publication: “This film is not about his homosexuality, nor does his sexuality define him.

“But that relationship is certainly a defining element of who he is and what he’s about.

“I also don’t think he’s someone who has given his heart or his soul to many people. The aftermath of their relationship left him reeling, and he’s packed his heart in ice, to be honest, and no one’s quite thawed it.”

“I think the world is ready for it, and if it isn’t, it bloody well should be.”

—Jude Law

Law was then asked: “Is the world ready for a gay children’s icon?”

He responded: “I think the world is ready for it, and if it isn’t, it bloody well should be.”

He also sported several large rings and had glitter painted just below his eyes.

The actor’s hair was styled in sharp-looking spikes.

It comes after Miller recently wore a majestic padded gown to the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald world premiere in Paris, which some Twitter users said looked like a “human sex toy.”

Miller proudly donned his striking black gown, complete with hood and cape, on the red carpet event for the second installation of the Fantastic Beasts film series.

He added to his dazzling look by wearing burgundy lipstick.

Miller posed for photos along the red carpet and gave his autograph to fans.
