It’s no secret 90% of Hollywood’s crème de la crème look quite beautiful. I guess there’s just a certain standard that doesn’t let less stunning people into the circle of poster boys and Vogue cover ladies. Yet sometimes even the most gorgeous of Hollywood stars have to shed that beautiful skin and don an attire of a crook, homeless person, a beast, or even a monstrous clown whose image will haunt you in your dreams. That’s why we love movies so much! We get to see different sides of otherwise impeccable celebs who seem to be too perfect for this world. I bet this is why they do movies, too! So, without further ado, here are 10 ‘ugly’ movie characters who look stunning in real life.
Vanessa Hudgens – Agnes (Gimme Shelter)
No one expected sweet Vanessa Hudgens to go from a Spring Breakers cutie clad in skimpy swimwear to a problematic teenager with an emo cut wearing oversized hoodies in Gimme Shelter. Vanessa Hudgens plays Agnes, a pregnant runaway teenage girl in search of her father and a place she could call home. Her transformation is quite spectacular!
Joey King – Gypsy Blanchard (The Act)
Joey King who played the young girl Gypsy confined to her wheelchair due to an illness in Hulu series The Act definitely knows a thing or two about transforming for a role. She looks so much better in real life!
Christian Bale – Aly Weisman (American Hustle)
It’s not a secret Christian Bale is truly dedicated to each and every role he chooses. Whether it’s The Machinist, a movie that got him turned into a skinny shadow of a man, or the American Hustle that made him gain 43 pounds of extra weight, Christian Bale never says ‘no’ when the role demands some kind of transformation. To become bigger for the role of Aly Weisman Christian Bale went on a diet of doughnuts, cheeseburgers, and literally any junk food that came his way.
Mariah Carey – Ms. Weiss (Precious)
It’s hard to imagine Mariah Carey looking anything but spectacular, yet this happened when she decided to tap into some acting and took on a role of Ms. Weiss in the movie Precious. Needless to say, she doesn’t look like herself and it’s good this acting gig of hers didn’t last for long.
