When we talk about Hollywood celebrities, we immediately think of their gorgeous looks and fashionable outfits on the screen and in everyday life. Yes, I do, too. But the film reflects real life, so there are always a bunch of good-looking and terrible characters in a film. Almost all actors love to be cool because it’s easier to attract more fans. On the other hand, they even get nothing when playing the bad characters in the movie. Will you take the role even knowing that?
We have to appreciate actors who accept a challenging role for the sake of character. Because convincing a role isn’t easy, the demand of the role might be opposite the strength of the actors. So they have to sacrifice their look and strength to fit the character in the film.
Here are 10 actors who didn’t mind devoting their talent and appearance to show more truthful emotions of their characters. Leave a comment on the most impressive portrayal below.
#1 Helena Bonham Carter — Harry Potter
Helena Bonham Carter plays a dangerous and unpredictable role in Bellatrix Lestrange, in the Harry Potter series.
#2 Javier Bardem — Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge
Javier portrays the bad guy and this role actually saves the film from negative reviews. It’s the reason why Captain Amando Salazar is taken by him to become a part of the franchise and show up in part 5.
#3 Cate Blanchett — Manifesto
The faces of Cate Blanchett changed drastically by 13 different characters. She performs the different roles with complex contents of the original texts.
#4 Stephanie Leonidas — Defiance
In Defiance, Stephanie Leonidas plays an alien role. The aliens have hearts, and she made the film meaningful in that people could be engaged in more than just watching a bunch of aliens.
#5 Bill Nighy — Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest
Many people thought that the filmmakers used a latex mask for the captain of the Flying Dutchman. However, they used motion capture technology in the character. But no one could deny the importance of Bill Nighy by the way he created the character.
#6 Margot Robbie — Mary Queen of Scots
The film portrays the English ambassador to the Scottish Court. Margot Robbie is cast to play the Queen of England and Ireland, Elizabeth I. Her hairstyle and makeup are impressive enough to be nominated for an Academy Awards.
#7 Bette Midler — Hocus Pocus
Hocus Pocus is a Halloween tradition. The award-winning actress once confessed she hadn’t watched the 1993 Disney film in “at least 20 years” before finally sitting down for a rewatch.
#8 Nicole Kidman — Destroyer
Nicole Kidman has entered a phase of her career so prolific that you could watch her in three different movies this fall alone. Still, you’ve never seen her do anything quite like “Destroyer.”
#9 Jared Leto — Suicide Squad
Jared Leto was iconic for the sense he did crazy things on the set. He can take over all the actors, the fighter of the Suicide Squad, with Joker-style gifts. We won’t come to detail, we will just say Viola David got a dead pig and Margot Robbie got his live black rat.
#10 Joey King — The Act
Joey’s hair and teeth changed throughout the stories. She plays the role of the girl whose mother doesn’t treat her well.
