14 Actors And Actresses Who Completely Transformed For Movie Roles

Acting is among the most challenging careers that people pursue, it requires a lot of hard work and commitment. Sometimes, actors have to transform their looks to take on their characters. They frequently wear makeup when filming. But the makeup alone isn’t enough and they need to change their appearance to fit in the roles they play. 

Many actors in Hollywood have undergone a drastic transformation to convince their characters. Some actors had to starve themself in a really short time. Chris Pratt, for instance, had to lose so much weight and pump up his muscles for Guardians of the Galaxy within 6 months. He starved in extreme conditions to get that perfect look. Some had to gain a lot of weight for their roles’ requirements. Jared Leto in the 2007 Chapter 27 movie is an example. The actor gained 67 pounds to play his character, Mark Chapman.

Actors have sacrificed themself to play brilliantly the characters in movies. And here is a list of actors and actresses who have transformed themselves into movie roles.
