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," contactmusic.com quoted Law as saying.
