Actors are often glamourous, attractive, and downright fabulous. And that’s great! But what happens when they have to play someone normal looking? These 10 transformations show just how completely an actor’s appearance can be altered to make them a perfect fit for their ‘average-looking’ roles… 

 

 

 

Who’s that girl?

Carey in her role as a bedraggled social worker.

Glamorous singer Mariah Carey underwent a make-under for her movie, Precious. The normally sparkling Carey looks more than a little bit tired in her role as a bedraggled social worker.

All that glitters… 

Just feel the fabulous coming off the screen!

Just feel the fabulous coming off the screen!

It's certainly a far cry from her usual image of a pampered Hollywood pop diva. We can just feel the fabulous coming off the screen!

Who’s behind this face? 

A whole box of chocolate buttons that you'll never get it!

A whole box of chocolate buttons that you'll never get it!

What famous face lies behind this old man guise? We bet a whole box of chocolate buttons that you’ll never get it…

 …Brad Pitt 

It's Mr Pitt's 'little old man look'.

It's Mr Pitt's 'little old man look'.

Darn, you got us! That 'little old man look' is Mr Pitt's incarnation as the star of The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button.

Who’s the pretty girl? 

You may be surprised which British Actor this is.

Tear your gaze away from those come-to-bed eyes and you might be surprised which British actor is beneath the wig...

…Jude Law 

He plays a gender-bending supermodel called Minx.

Bet you didn’t see this one coming! Jude Law plays a gender-bending supermodel called Minx in his movie, Rage. We hate to say it, but he's a good looking lady...

Matt Damon in

Matt Damon: making all the ladies swoon.

Making all the ladies swoon.

After making all the ladies swoon as super-agent Jason Bourne, our man Damon underwent a bit of a ‘middle-age’ transformation…

…The Informer 

Matt Damon: giving Tom Selleck a run for his money.

Giving Tom Selleck a run for his money.

Just look at that moustache. We think Matt could give Tom Selleck a run for his money with that fabulous bit of upper lip decoration.

John Travolta in… 

We usually think of white suits and 70's disco music.

We usually think of white suits and 70's disco music.

When we think of John Travolta, we usually think of white suits, 70’s disco music, and that confident strutting walk he does that makes him look a little bit like a farm animal. But have you ever wondered what John would look like with a shaved head?

…From Paris with Love 

Travolta becomes a real badass.

Travolta becomes a real badass.

Here you go! As bald as Ross Kemp or Bruce Willis, Travolta becomes a real badass in this 2009 movie.

George Clooney in… 

Could Clooney be any cooler?

Could Clooney be any cooler?

The Ocean's Thirteen mega-star always looks suave and sophisticated. Just look at those sunglasses. Could he be any cooler? Well…

…Men that Stare at Goats 

Not quite as suave in Men that Stare at Goats.

Not quite as suave in Men that Stare at Goats.

He certainly doesn’t look quite as suave in Men that Stare at Goats. Still, while we can’t agree that his face suits that moustache, we definitely think he should grow his hair long. We’re big fans of wild-Clooney!

Cameron Diaz in… 

Cameron Diaz's Lotte was a whopping transformation.

Cameron Diaz's brilliant turn as Lotte in Being John Malkovich was a whopping transformation. Don’t believe us? Well take a look at this…

…Being John Malkovich 

Cameron Diaz stole the show with her wild, frizzy hair

With wild, frizzy hair, contact lenses, and a very dowdy dress sense, Cameron Diaz stole the show in the hit Indie flick.

Nicole Kidman in… 

Nicole's transformation got our attention.

Nicole's transformation got our attention.

Stephen Daldry's The Hours isn't the kind of movie you watch repeatedly. Not unless you enjoy feeling a bit sad! Nicole’s big transformation sure got our attention though…

…The Hours 

Nicole Kidman is barely recognisable as the famous author, Virginia Woolf

Nicole Kidman is barely recognisable as the famous author, Virginia Woolf. Great acting and a great plot mean you should definitely watch this movie. Just remember to keep the hankies handy. 

Hilary Swank in… 

Swank prepared for her gender-bending role as Brandon Teena.

Hilary Swank reportedly prepared for her gender-bending role as Brandon Teena in Boys Don't Cry by living as a bloke for the duration of the movie's shoot. That must have been an interesting experience…

…Boys Don’t Cry 

Swank went the extra mile.

Swank went the extra mile.

And one that clearly gave her a good understanding of the male mind. Apparently Swank stuffed socks down her pants to give her an even better understanding of what being a bloke was all about. Now that’s what we call going the extra mile!

Charlize Theron in… 

Theron's normally gorgeous visage.

Theron's normally gorgeous visage.

When actress Charlize Theron took on the role of serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster, she gained 30lbs (2.1 stone), wore prosthetic teeth and transformed her normally gorgeous visage.

...Monster

Theron's dazzling performance in Monster.

Dazzling performance in Monster.

We loved her dazzling performance in Monster, but more importantly so did the critics, as the Academy then went on to hand her an Oscar. Good work Charlz!
