16 Actors Who Underwent Drastic Makeovers To Fit Their Roles

Being a Hollywood movie star sounds like a dream job for most people. After all, these stars are paid millions of dollars to travel the world, have fun, and connect with other celebrities. There are lots of benefits, and they will become famous - what could be better?
Being an actor appears to be a nice career on the surface, and it is, but that doesn't mean some hard work isn't involved now and again. Some actors and actresses are so well-known for their roles that we can hardly imagine them in completely other types of roles. True artists, on the other hand, always manage to surprise their fans with a total makeover.
Actors will sometimes go to extremes for their performances. This can include changing their bodies, going through intensive training, wearing make-up or unpleasant prosthetics, and, in extreme situations, isolating themselves so they can totally immerse themselves in their character.
Today, we've compiled a list of actors who have changed their appearance in the most surprising ways. Which makeover has impressed you the most?
