Jude Law's Versatility

Maybe others don't think it's that big a deal, but after watching both Cold Mountain and Alfie last week, and thinking about his body of work, does it strike anyone else that Jude Law has a remarkable ability to fill a fairly broad variety of roles given that he's stunningly pretty? True, make-up and costumes can conceal or distort his appearance (think of AI or Road to Perdition). But it still strikes me that one would usually expect his looks to be a bit of a burden (true, in many ways a wonderful burden to be stuck with) in that they could constrain the variety of roles he's offered. Yet he's gotten a very interesting mix of parts, and he's excelled throughout his career. He's an extremely talented actor.
