As a famous actress, being a part of the glitz and glamour isn’t all that hard. After all, the reason that you’re in the industry is because of your rare beauty! But when actresses want a nod from the Academy, or be recognized not just as a pretty face but as playing more “serious” roles, they tend to ugly themselves up on screen to a point where the red carpet stunners we’re used to become unrecognizable! Check the most unbelievable transformations here.
1. Charlize Theron – Monster
South African stunner Charlize Theron, who some might call the most beautiful woman in the world, stripped down to this raw and terrifying version of Aileen Wuornos, the not-so-cute trucker serial killer from Florida who killed a bunch of dudes. Theron’s performance was powerful and she looked startlingly like Wuornos herself in the transformation.
2. Rooney Mara – Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Rooney Mara is such a babe in plunging necklines on the red carpet, that when we saw her with that jacked up hair and bleached eyebrows. Lookin’ like a Yeezy show gone wrong. With her intense eyes and pale skin, the tatted up and pierced punk alt ago that Mara adopted for her Lisbeth Salander role sure gave us the creeps!
3. Renee Zellweger – Bridget Jones Diary
This isn’t to say that plus-size girls can’t be cute too, but the sloppy and chubby Bridget Jones versus the angular, sharp sexiness of Rene Zellweger was certainly quite the change. Just the difference in her face is quite amazing – from frumpy to red carpet ready, we don’t know how Renee was so dedicated for this role that she did it not once, but thrice!
