How hard is it to become an actor? 10 Actors Who Experienced A Jaw Dropping Child Star Transformations To Fit Their Role
It is incredibly hard to become an actor. I believe anyone can act, but to become a working actor is another matter. Many people mistakenly believe that acting is simply talking while sometimes getting emotional; in other words, they believe that what they see on TV or on stage is simply someone being themselves. Because of this, a lot of individuals think they can do it. They say, “Acting is only hard because you have to memorize lines. If I could remember, I could be an actor, too.”
Actually, here’s the thing: Remarkable actors do go through intense training specifically so you can’t tell how hard they’re working, so you can’t see the years and years of training that make them fit for the role. That’s right! Actors often go to extreme lengths in order to get into characters. From weight loss and gain to remarkable make-up and prosthetics, here are photos of your favorite Hollywood stars transforming themselves in the name of cinema. Scroll down for more details!
#1 Vincent Cassel from Beauty and the Beast (2014)
Vincent Cassel has revealed that he shed pounds for his new role as the Beast in the Beauty And The Beast remake. The French actor – who portrays the monstrous creature in Christophe Gans’ film alongside French model Lea Seydoux as Beauty – had to get to grips with his heavy costume. “With the costume of the Beast, I lost ten kilos, because I’m supposed to be huge and hairy. But I enjoyed it,” he told Collider.
#2 Omar Sy from X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
In X-Men: Days of Future Past, Omar Sy stretches his muscles. The surprise is substantial. The Canal+ comedian leaves his costume of the humorous and beautiful variety to endorse it’s that of the dark Lucas Bishop, a giant mutant clad in a red cape that resembles his eyes.
#3 Alain Chabat from Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017)
The actor played the pirate Bob in Luc Besson’s most recent hit, which he co-starred in alongside other A-listers including Clive Owen, Rihanna, and Cara Delevigne. You have to look at Alain Chabat extremely closely in order to recognize him in this movie. He grew out his hair and beard, keeping the beard shape while filming Santa & Cie. After the filming was over, he decided to keep the beard since he enjoyed it.
#4 Vincent Cassel from Mesrine: Killer Instinct (2008)
To play France’s most famous criminal in the 2008 Jean-François Richet film, Vincent Cassel gained 20 kg! Nine long months are needed for the handsome young man to get back in shape…. And he shared that he’ll never make such a sudden transformation again!
#5 Marion Cotillard from La Vie En Rose (2007)
Marion Cotillard steps into the shoes of Edith Piaf in this autobiographical film about the legendary French singer that follows her childhood. She had to completely shave her eyebrows and part of her hairline in order to resemble the singer completely, in addition to perfecting her singing technique with extended singing lessons and working on her accent. This role won her four Best Actress awards in 2008, including an Oscar.

Pierre Niney portrays a young firefighter in Through the Fire who sustains serious burns while on his first mission. He spent 4 months physically training with firemen at a station in order to get ready for the job. Additionally, he received nutritional guidance while he put on 20 pounds of muscle. In order to film the second half of the movie, he then had to rapidly drop this weight (and more!).
#7 Guillaume Canet from Rock’n Roll (2017)
Guillaume Canet experiences an existential crisis and abuses cosmetic surgery in this ridiculous comedy that was based on his actual life. He appears onscreen with a heavily retouched face and completely enlarged muscles. Using prosthetics created by make-up artist Olivier Alfonso, he transformed himself.
#8 Gérard Depardieu from Asterix and Obelix vs. Caesar (1999)
Three separate performers brought Asterix to life in three distinct movies; Gérard Depardieu, a gifted and indispensable actor, played Obélix. He remained wrinkle-free throughout the whole first movie, from Gaul to Great Britain to Egypt. He was true to himself with his charming mustache and those redheaded curls. Oh, and don’t forget about his loyal four-legged friend, Idefix!
#9 Gérard Darmon from Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra (2002)
Gérard Darmon swaps his gray hair for a fairly unusual hairdo and a lengthy triangular beard that resembles a viper’s tongue in Asterix and Obelix: Mission Cleopatra. He portrays Amonbofis, Cleopatra’s appointed architect, in that scene. He is an exact replica of Ammonbofis’ creation from the Asterix and Cleopatra comics, which served as the film’s inspiration.
#10 Maïwenn Le Besco from The Fifth Element (1997)
It wasn’t easy for Maïwenn, as she had to learn to sing, wear a rather heavy alien head, and not sit for hours so as not to ruin her outfit and makeup, as it took her about three hours a day. No one saw her or heard her voice during rehearsals, only when the scene and theater curtains were drawn could the actors see her and be completely amazed by her performance.
