Unrecognizable Characters Attractive in Real Life:
A movie script demands the actors to transform themselves completely for their roles. Sometimes they look unattractive due to the required makeup and it instills deeply in our mind. But once the weird style and makeup come off, we fail to get our eyes off their enchanting faces. The difference between their on-screen and off-screen appearances almost seems like magic. You’ll be amazed to find how the following actors of their famous characters look like in reality.
1. Daveigh Chase in The Ring
The infamous pale face of The Ring ghost has scared many kids over the years. But your instincts would compel you not to run anymore once you see the beautiful Daveigh behind that makeup.
2. Lizzy Caplan in Mean Girls
The famous teen classic focused on the war amongst 5 teen girls. While 4 of them were the school diva, the 5th one, Janice, was different from them. She was a person of her own and didn’t bother to dress up according to the herd-fashion. Her clothes and hairstyle were out of this world but the actress Lizzy who played Janice is nothing like the character. She looks beautiful in real life and could easily beat the onscreen ‘mean girls’ in terms of fashion and charm.
3. Naomi Grossman in American Horror Story
This is the quintessential work of the make artists that we have seen so far. American Horror Story is one of the most spine chilling series to ever air on TV. The 2nd season titled Asylum starred a character Pepper who was abandoned by her family as a kid and ended up in the terrifying asylum. Pepper was played by Naomi Grossman who is nowhere close to her character.
4. Bill Skarsgard in It
Would you even dare to stand around this evil and spine chilling clown? The very gaze of the It clown froze hearts but we bet you wouldn’t feel the same once have a look at the actor behind the makeup. You can’t get your eyes off this handsome Swedish actor, can you?
5. Christian Bale in The Machinist
Christian Bale is known as one of the most versatile actors who can transform himself into any character that he plays. Our jaws dropped as we saw the chiseled Christian in The Machinist. He played an insomniac in the movie and lost about 60 pounds for it. Not just this movie, but Christian goes unrecognizable numerous times for different roles like a chameleon.
6. Tom Cruise in Tropic Thunder
Decades pass by but Tom Cruise neither ages nor does he lose his fan base. He has been on the top spot for the past few decades for his stunning looks and action stunts. The Mission: Impossible star was totally unrecognizable in Tropic Thunder with his bald patch and chubby hairy arms.
7. Charlize Theron in Monster
Charlize was bound to make to this list for the sheer amount of dedication and sacrifice she underwent for this character. Theron is one of the most beautiful and glamorous actresses of the industry. But one can almost lose his mind on realizing that the prostitute in Monster was none other than Charlize. She went to great lengths to change her appearance like gaining weight and shaving off her eyebrows.
8. James Franco In Spring Breakers
In spite of watching James Franco for years in uncountable movies, most of the audience failed to spot him in Spring Breakers. He underwent heavy makeup and props to play the shady rapper in the movie. Apart from the makeup, it was also his expressions that betrayed our eyes.
9. Vanessa Hudgens in Gimme Shelter
Vanessa is the ultimate face or romcoms for her charm. But she surprised us by taking a role outside her comfort zone. Vanessa dropped her coy smile and put up the mask of a shabby and bad-tempered teen in Gimme Shelter. She looked nothing like she did in the movie.
10. Anjelica Huston in The Witches and The Addams Family
There was a time in Hollywood when witches looked nothing like Sabrina and Hermione Granger. The scary and repulsive-looking witch in The Witches was played by Anjelica Huston who looks lovely in reality. Angelica is also credited for giving the ultimate face to Morticia Addams in The Addams Family.
