10 Actresses Who Look Stunning While Playing Totally Different Roles

Being an actress gives you the chance to completely change into another person. You have hair, makeup, and clothing to help you completely immerse yourself in a new role when you get into character. It’s acceptable for some actors to stick to what they know and not change their physical appearance all that much. But there’s also something to be said about actors who completely change their appearance for a role, leaving us speechless when we see them off the set as their daily selves.

Certain TV series and films have managed to become an actor’s best-known work, with the character they play being the most well-known in their career. Because of this, seeing them free of costume and makeup might be even more surprising. We could walk right past them on the street with notice! Because women are normally relegated to playing it attractive in Hollywood, it’s intriguing to watch the performers who have downplayed their naturally gorgeous appearance for the sake of a role!

These below 10 beautiful women look nothing like the characters they’ve played or whom we know and love. Scroll down and check them out, then share with us your comment.

#1 Amy Adams

Amy Adams is famous for many different roles. She has appeared in dramas, comedies, and superhero films. The actress has won numerous honors, including six Academy Award nominations. Although her acting has always been acclaimed by critics, she has failed to win an Oscar for some unknown reason.

Hillbilly Elegy, one of her most recent films, received mixed reviews from critics, but her work was appreciated by many professionals. “Adams’ performance has been dinged for its unmodulated desperation and histrionics,”  Roger Ebert noted in his review, which made her character true and reliable.

#2 Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett is said to have enjoyed a career that many young actors wish for. The Australian actress has already played lots of male and female characters, as well as protagonists and antagonists. Cate also performs on stage.

Her most memorable roles were Queen Elizabeth I in Elizabeth and agent Irina Spalko in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Steven Spielberg, by the way, has stated that Irina Spalko is his favorite villain in the Indiana Jones film series.

#3 Charlize Theron

The monster was released in 2003. Charlize Theron had to completely change her appearance for this role. She gained 30 pounds, shaved her brows, and wore fake teeth. Critics appreciated her performance. It was specifically highlighted that the actor could express emotions with her eyes and gestures.

Charlize was furious every time she read that the media focused on her visual makeover rather than her performance. She, on the other hand, proved that she was more than just a gorgeous face by winning an Oscar for her role.

#4 Emma Thompson

Thompson’s role as Nanny McPhee in the film of the same name is one of her most positive roles. Her character’s appearance varies throughout the film, and the actress’s portrayal is highly convincing.

Emma plays the antagonist in the 2021 film Cruella. The actress stated that she had long desired to play a villain. She was particularly happy with the clothes she wore in the film. She described them as true works of art. When asked what it was like to create a villain, Thompson said, “I think if my husband were in the room, he’d say, ’And no acting required, really.’”

#5 Helena Bonham Carter

Helena Bonham Carter, according to the media, has a distinct style. This also applies to her characters. The actress usually plays odd women. One of her best characters is Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter film series.

Helena helped to make this character famous. The unkempt hair and rotten teeth were Helena’s ideas for Bellatrix’s appearance. She also made her character more balanced than the screenplay called for.

Carter, on the other hand, is natural in the position of a positive character. Her portrayal as the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella (2015) is one of her most notable achievements.

#6 Imelda Staunton

Imelda Staunton’s villain became one of the main antagonists in the Harry Potter film series. Magazines praised Staunton’s performance as the film’s haughty and cunning villain, Professor Dolores Umbridge.

However, the actress is equally convincing while playing good characters. She portrayed the sweet fairy who raised the princess in Maleficent. According to reviewers, both of these parts are her best performances.

#7 Lena Headey

Lena Headey is well-known as Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones. But she’s done so many other wonderful things. Critics and audiences both reacted positively to her portrayal of Sarah Connor. She was described as “a tough leader of people who will walk through anything to achieve her goal.”

The role of Cersei not only earned Lena money and fame but also enraged fans. Headey was so convincing in this portrayal that fans of the show turned their anger toward her character toward her personally. People were taking their books from her hands during an autograph session at Comic-Con to prevent her from signing them.

#8 Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman’s portrayal of Evey in V for Vendetta is one of her most notable roles. The audience appreciated the film since the actress shaved her head and improved on her accent. It’s worth noting that Natalie stated in an interview that she would be open to returning for a sequel to the film if the creators decided to make it.

But it was her performance of a negative persona that earned her the coveted Oscar. In 2010, the thriller Black Swan was released. Portman demonstrated what an artist goes through to obtain near perfection by portraying manically devoted Nina Sayers.

#9 Nicole Kidman

In the film Grace of Monaco, Kidman played Grace Kelly really convincingly. “The camera positively sighs with joy every time she is on screen,” critics observed.

However, the actress can also portray a villain. She played  Millicent Clyde, the taxidermist who chases down the bear in Paddington. By the way, Kidman was excited to take on the role because she grew up reading Michael Bond’s books. Nicole took her role very seriously, learning to throw knives and enrolling in a taxidermy class.

#10 Tilda Swinton

Pedro Almodóvar’s film The Human Voice, starring Tilda Swinton, was released in 2020. She portrays a woman on the phone with her lover, who wants to end their relationship. Her performance was so impressive that critics dubbed the film “a concise, concentrated burst of demented passion.”

Tilda looks totally different in Snowpiercer, a post-apocalyptic thriller in which she plays the insane deputy of a railway custodian. The actor attempted to make her role as repulsive as possible. Some aspects of her character’s appearance were even Tilda’s ideas.
