12 Hollywood Celebs Who Got Ugly For A Movie Role


Celebrities or superstars are known for their beautiful, alluring persona. Though they appear as captivating people on screen, they too undergo certain make-under as per the requirement of the roles. Many of Hollywood’s most charming talent had got ugly for a part.

Check out the most unrecognizable 12 celebrities that have gone less attractive.

#12 Salma Hayek – Frida

Latina beauty Salma Hayek is known for her flawless face and an attractive accent, but in 2002, she got unlovely for her role in Frida. Even with a single brow and lady-stache, she looked gorgeous.

#11 Ryan Gosling – Blue Valentine

Most celebrity Ryan Gosling is usually known as a shoddy handsome leading man. Still, in 2010’s Blue Valentine, he remained half the film his impressive self and the later half balding and disconsolate. Even with unattractiveness, he managed to charm people.

#10 Johnny Depp – Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Depp is a fixed chameleon, and almost every role required him to have one or another transformation. The most unrecognizable and outrageous one was his role as author Hunter S. Thompson in 1998’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

#9 Rooney Mara- The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Rooney Mara, the dazzling beauty with her girl-next-door smile. She played the nonsense hacker Lisbeth Salander in 2011’s ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.’ The shaved eyebrows and tons of piercings, too, could not hide her beauty.

#8 Nicole Kidman- The Hours

The Australian beauty Nicole Kidman is known for her arresting eyes and flawless skin, remodeled herself in 2002’s film, The Hours, to play the role of Virginia Woolf. She had to overhaul her nose under her, not so groomed hair.

#7 Cameron Diaz – Being John Malkovich

Since Cameron featured in the movie ‘The Mask’, men and women have gone mad behind her. But when she performed as Lotte in ‘Being John Malkovich’ as a timid woman in 1999, her bombshell look transformed into a plain Jane.

#6 James Franco- Spring Breakers

James Franco has often been compared and broached as James Dean of his period, but for 2012 crime flick Spring Breakers, he managed to look like Riff Faff’s busted younger brother. Franco had to don plaits, a grill, tattoos, and some flatterer sunglasses to make him almost unknowable person just as Alien.

#5 Tom Cruise- Tropic Thunder

My all-time favorite Tom Cruise, the heart-throb of every girl, usually plays pleasing spy type roles, but his costume in 2008’s Tropic Thunder was very different from his other usual spy looks. He acted as Les Gross-man, and the person looked bald, fat with a horrible accent.

#4 Christian Bale- American Hustle

Christian Bale, one of the hottest actors, is famous for his intense and trimmed body changes for the roles. But when he was cast as Irving Rosenfeld in 2013’s American Hustle, he looked bloated, and smoking cigars did not look like the right role for him.

#3 Gwyneth Paltrow- Shallow Hal

Unbelievable make under of this beautiful lady Gwyneth Paltrow in her role in Shallow Hal in 2001. She had to wear prosthetic makeup on her face and carried a fat suit, which made her feel low and disgraced behind that ugly look.

#2 Jared Leto- Suicide Squad

Jared Leto, with his charming blue eyes, piercing, and sweet voice is handsome. But the astonishing role of him as The Joker in the upcoming comic epic, Suicide Squad, kept everyone wondering. He wore pale skin, green hair, and busted dental work.

#1 Charlize Theron- Monster

Charlize Theron is one of those celebrities that can never go wrong with her acting be it as a wicked step-mother or a post-apocalyptic bad-ass with a buzz cut. But her role as serial killer as Aileen Wuornos in 2003’s Monster was indistinguishable. Tons of makeup made her the top make-under so far in history.
