Hollywood make-up artists are genius they can transform a good looking man into a hideous monster or a plane-Jane into a sultry sex siren. But here is a list of actors who felt that it would be better to challenge their own bodies for the roles of their films instead of just depending on make-ups.
This list is just a glimpse to the dedication that some of the Hollywood artists have for their art. The list is of four actors who took up the challenge to gain and lose weight for their respective films.
Christian Bale – ‘The Machinist’ 2004 – the 36year old actor played the role of a man ravaged by insomnia. Bale lost one third of his body weight and weighed only 121 pounds for the role. He tells that his character of Trevor Reznik was a man who was on the brink of death and he didn’t know any better on how to attain that apart from starving himself. So he transformed himself into a walking skeleton.
