Six insane celeb movie transformations
From fat to thin, thin to fat, hot to ugly…We have them all here!
Charlize looked completely different when she donned the make up to play infamous serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster. The thing that gets us though is surely the producers could have just found an ugly actress to play the role, no? Makes us feel bad for ugly actresses in a way, they are too ugly to even play ugly characters.
Anyone who has seen to Fight Club will know that if you had to pick one person to fight it would probably have been Edward. However if you had seen him Edward in his American History X role, you definitely would have asked to go one on one with Tyler Durdan. Clearly to achieve this physique Edward just went to the gym and ate right (ahem). I think we call all agree though that it is probably the goatee beard which really completes the transformation.
In the movie Cast Away aka ‘the advert for FedEx’ we literally saw Tom Hanks transform before our eyes going from a short haired, healthy-looking normal person to a long haired, bearded, skinny Wild man. Kind of the same transformation any rock star worth his salt goes through.
In order to play the role of Trevor Reznik in the rarely seen ‘Machinist’, Christian Bale lost almost 60 pounds in body weight. He then bulked up to over 220 pounds to play Batman, because let’s face it even we would fancy our chances against Batman if he had the before physique!
In 9½ Weeks alongside Kim Basenger, Mickey Rourke was a legitimate sex symbol. It even says so on his Wikipedia entry. Technically Mickey could also have been included on this list for his transformation to play the lead role in ‘The Wrestler’, but we’re putting him on the list, because he has transformed from a a handsome lotharia into ‘The Bride of Weinstein‘ look-a-like.
Sacha Baron Cohen
Outside of Kazakhstan and away from his ’sister’ Borat would find it seriously difficult to even talk to a female let alone romance one, but with a shave and a shower Sacha Baron Cohen scrubs up to be quite a handsome chap.
Got any other celeb transformations we missed, let us know below.
