10 Incredible Things Devoted Actors Have Done For The Movies

The everyday life of an actor or actress does not consist of things like signing autographs, participating in never-ending photoshoots, or finally earning long-awaited honors. Their lives are much more grounded in the real world, where they must stick to stringent diets or gain weight, acquire new skills (which may be exciting, or they can be boring), and frequently work in settings that are not at all pleasant.

The nearly 13-year wait for the release of the three-hour long film Avatar: The Way of Water has been excruciating for fans. One of the most outlandish facts about the epic sequel is that star Kate Winslet spent a record-breaking 7 minutes and 15 seconds underwater. The footage of me asking, “Am I dead?’ has surfaced. When asked, “Have I died?,” And then she was like, “What was [my time]?” I was curious about the time right away. It seemed unbelievable to me, in fact. We need a radio set, I suggest after that. I was hoping to tell Jim immediately soon.

Ruth Wilson spent three weeks prior to filming living and working on a real farm, immersing herself in the lifestyle of her character, a farm girl. The actor had to undertake some unglamorous tasks including shearing animals, trimming their hooves, pulling them, and even castrating lambs, which may not seem exciting but was necessary for the role.

3. Jamie Dornan In The Fall

Dornan portrayed a crook in this show. The actor made a last-ditch effort to immerse himself in the character of a person who is constantly on the run. During his contemplative metro ride, he focused on one female and followed her for several streets. Dornan found the whole thing to be both thrilling and filthy.

4. Ashton Kutcher In Jobs

The actor, inspired by Steve Jobs, went on a fruitarian diet to be in shape for the filming. He preferred to eat nothing but carrots. Ashton Kutcher’s body couldn’t take it, and the actor was hospitalized due to complications with his pancreas.

5. Aaron Eckhart In Rabbit Hole

Aaron Eckhart started going to a support group for parents who had endured the death of a child in order to fully immerse himself in his character, as the story centers on a couple who lost their son. As the actor had to put on a show for others experiencing genuine grief, this decision showed a shocking lack of compassion. But it appears to have been worthwhile, since his immersion into this position is now total. But despite this, the film has mostly gone overlooked by the public.

6. Jared Leto In Dallas Buyers Club

The actor dropped 30 pounds and stayed in character nonstop for his portrayal. Additionally, Jared Leto honed his skills in the art of lipstick application and wax epilation of his legs and eyebrows.

The performance as Maggie earned the actress an Academy Award. She would put in a lot of time in the gym and on the boxing bag in the months leading up to the shoot, spending multiple hours a day on both. Hilary Swank put on 19 pounds of muscle by working out and eating a high-protein diet.

8. Jennifer Lawrence In Winter’s Bone

Jennifer Lawrence’s role, a farm girl from a tiny town, required her to acquire certain non-Hollywood skills. As an illustration, she is an expert axe-wielder. In the film, we could all observe how adeptly she picked up the skill.

9. Rooney Mara In The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The actress relocated to Stockholm voluntarily several weeks before filming began so that she could fully immerse herself in the culture of the city, where her role was based. In order to fully immerse herself in the part, Rooney Mara darkened her naturally blonde hair, got piercings, and bleached her eyebrows.

10. Blake Lively In The Shallows

Only a few months after giving birth, the actress featured in a part that required her to appear on screen in a bikini. Blake Lively spent 13 hours a day working out with her sofa in order to be in shape. Seeing the actress in the film, we believe she has accomplished her aim and then some.
