London: Jude Law says actors are "eccentric, imaginative and creative" by nature just like fictional detective Sherlock Holmes.

The 38-year-old plays Dr. John Watson in `Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows`.

"I suppose, some days I wake up and I have to be responsible and down-to-earth and reliable, and other days I don`t. I think this job in particular allows us all to be Holmes-ian; eccentric and imaginative and creative and to think out of the box. Real life, away from work, requires us to be slightly more Dr. John Watson," quoted Law as saying.
