Have you ever been watching a movie or TV show and been unable to identify the actor who is staring you straight in the face? Or perhaps you’ve seen certain things and noticed that a certain celebrity is hardly recognizable in the movie? Celebrities change their appearances so often that it’s hard to tell who they are in some films.
I’ve definitely been caught off guard in the past when I should have noticed a minor prosthetic touch-up here and there, but I’ve also been utterly astounded by some of the amazing changes celebrities have gone through to properly embody their roles.
However, not all of them changed their appearance just because the roles required them to. Some celebrities decided to change their looks just because they wanted to look different for personal interests.
Some well-known people have undergone significant changes in a short amount of time. These changes are so noticeable that you have to make sure you are still looking at the same person. Here are 16 of the most dramatic changes from our beloved celebs.
