Actors Who Changed Everything For Their Role (15 pics)

Posted in Lifestyle » Celebs   2 Feb 2018   / 3325 views

Tilda Swinton in The Grand Budapest Hotel, 2014

For the part of old Madame D., Tilda Swinton had to spend 5 hours in the makeup chair to put her look on and 5 hours to take it off.

Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club, 2013

The makeup artist spoke to many doctors about AIDS because building the character’s sickly look was an intricate process involving highlighting and contouring bones and creating rashes and lesions.

John Travolta in Hairspray, 2007

John Travolta thought for 14 months before agreeing to play the part of Edna Turnblad. On set, he had to spend up to 5 hours a day in a full body suit that weighed more than 30 lb.

Danny DeVito in Batman Returns, 1992

So much work was done by the movie crew to create this character that they wanted to keep it a surprise by all means. DeVito wasn’t allowed to describe the Penguin to anyone, including family members.

Jacob Tremblay in Wonder, 2017

Jacob says it took 2 hours of makeup and prostheses to prepare for the role of Auggie Pullman. He was also able to become friends with kids with facial differences, and this helped him understand his character better.

Gary Oldman in Darkest Hour, 2017

To make this transformation happen, Oldman found Kazuhiro Tsuji, a makeup artist he knew who had already retired from movies and moved into fine art. Some of his incredible work includes Guillermo Del Toro’s Hellboy, Tim Roth’s Thade in Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes, and Jim Carrey’s The Grinch in Ron Howard’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Gary managed to talk him into coming back to work to turn him into Winston Churchill.

Charlize Theron in Monster, 2003

This transformation was a combination of great makeup and the actress’s sacrifice: she stopped exercising and eating healthily to gain weight for the role. On set, she also had to wear prosthetic teeth on top of all the layers of makeup covering her face.

Robert de Niro in Frankenstein, 1994

It might be hard to recognize the handsome Robert De Niro as Frankenstein’s Creation. He managed to play this character with the help of an army of makeup artists. The movie was nominated for an Oscar in the category of Best Makeup.

John Leguizamo in Spawn, 1997

Leguizamo had to spend so much time in the makeup chair that he swore to himself he’d never agree to a part like that again. Nevertheless, he ended up in the same situation when he started working on the ABC miniseries Arabian Nights.

Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, 2008

Greg Cannom, age makeup creator and applicator on the film, says they did very intense makeup tests weeks before shooting, going age by age. He admits that most of the film’s success depended on it.

Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort

The amazing look was created by the 2-time Oscar-winning makeup artist Mark Coulier. He had to get very creative because the time Fiennes could spend in the makeup chair was limited by the shorter working day for the kids on the set.

Dustin Hoffman in Hook, 1991

The movie was such a great hit of its time that props from it are still very popular among internet sales, and kids still copy the look of its characters for Halloween.

Meryl Streep in Angels in America, 2003

Hard to recognize Meryl Streep here, right? How about the fact that she played 4 characters — Hannah Pitt, Ethel Rosenberg, a rabbi, and an angel? That’s where you can really feel the power of makeup!

Helena Bonham Carter in Planet of the Apes, 2001

Can you find Helena behind the ape makeup? Tim Burton’s remake of the 1968 classic is definitely talented and bright.

Richard Brake in Game of Thrones, 2014

The show is definitely created by a team of talented professionals, the evidence of which can be seen in Richard’s amazing transformation.
