10 Actors Who Were Ready To Say Goodbye To Their Status And Sacrifice Their Beauty For A Role

Talented actors or actresses immerse themselves into a variety of different roles. To fulfill their roles perfectly, almost actors associate with method acting. This often involves an actor making a direct physical or psychological connection with their characters. They even live as characters for a long time and then echo their mannerisms as closely as possible in their private life. These actors are willing to make huge physical or emotional sacrifices for their art. To make the transformations look real, they have to lose or gain a lot of weight in a short time. They’ve resorted to wearing shapeless clothes, unusual wigs, or spending hours in makeup.

All their hard work paid off. Many actors have received international recognition as well as numerous prestigious awards. We’ve rounded up the greatest sacrifices ever made by actors in pursuit of the perfect performance.
