15 Actors Who Nail The Roles Of The Villains But Are Sweethearts In Real Life

It might be tough for fans to separate the actors from the roles they play. In fact, celebrities are frequently addressed in public by the names of their characters. And sometimes they only know how to judge celebrities based on their roles in movies, without caring about their personalities in real life. There are actors who are loved in real life because of the characters they play, and of course, there are also actors who nail the villain roles that make people now hate their guts in the real world. But actually, actors can be oddly similar to or completely opposite of the characters they play. Do you know any actors who have played some of the most notorious villains but are actually sweethearts in real life?

Here are some such exceptionally talented actors who have received hate for playing the villains way too well. However, it would be interesting to discover their human, adorable sides in real life. Stay tuned for more details.
