    Default Actors Who Change Their Body for Their Roles

    Sometimes "getting into character" means a certain level of body modification. Whether it's slimming down, bulking up, or something more painful, Hollywood's finest will go the distance.

    Rooney Mara
    You almost wouldn't recognize Rooney Mara if your only exposure to the young actress was her breakout role as Lisbeth Salander in the American version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The beautiful Mara delved deep into her character's dark persona and didn't shy away from actually piercing her ears, lip, nose, and ******s. And she did them all in one session

    Christian Bale
    Christian Bale is no stranger to basically abusing his body for a part. He can buff up for a role like Batman, but most striking is his ability to drop weight. Bale famously dropped a record-setting 65 pounds to get down to a weight of 110 for The Machinist. He did the skinny thing again to play drug addict and boxer ****y Eklund in The Fighter, which paid off with an Oscar.

    Matt Damon
    Like Christian Bale, Matt Damon regularly changes his body depending on his next movie. He fattened up for The Informant, slimmed down to a gaunt look in Courage Under Fire, and got ripped for the Bourne movies. Heck, he even went bald for his most recent project.

    Ryan Gosling
    Ryan Gosling's purposeful weight gain actually got him fired. 2009's The Lovely Bones was originally supposed to star the Gos, but he and director Peter Jackson had different visions of what his character was supposed to look like. Gosling wanted to go fat. Jackson disagreed and replaced him with Mark Wahlberg.

    Charlize Theron
    Charlize Theron is an exceptionally beautiful woman, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a single person who would call her Oscar-winning portrayal of serial killer Aileen Wuornos sexy. The Monster star not only let the make-up artists make her look old and haggard, but she gained 30 pounds of extra weight for the part.

    Natalie Portman
    The average person would probably call Natalie Portman skinny (and they'd be right), but even she had to shed some pounds to play a ballerina in Black Swan, which goes to show just how brutal ballet can be on the body. Portman certainly looked the part, and even went through a year of training to minimize the use of a stunt double. Now she has an Oscar for her efforts.

    Steve Carell
    Losing weight is one thing, but losing body hair for a movie is a whole other (and more painful) story. Steve Carell and director Judd Apatow wanted the waxing scene in 40 Year Old Virgin to involve as little "acting" as possible, so they went for the real thing. Those screams coming from Carell are far from fake because that's actually his own hair being ripped from his chest.

    Renee Zellweger
    Throughout her career, Renee Zellweger has battled tabloid rumors dissecting her slender frame, so in a way, her work in the Bridget Jones films was kind of a "screw you" to the rumor mill. Zellweger had no problem plumping up to play Jones, adding a solid 25 pounds for the part.

    Tom Hanks
    Tom Hanks is one of the most beloved actors in the biz most likely for his charming personality, but his dedication to the craft probably has something to do with it, too. Hanks definitely committed to his character's battle for survival in Cast Away, losing weight to reflect a realistic look at what would happen to a man left stranded on an uninhabited island.

    Beyonce
    Beyonce is proud of her curvy body, but Dreamgirls producers were looking for a slender, Diana Ross-type look for her character. The songstress agreed she "wanted to see the change," so she dropped 20 pounds like a bad boyfriend.

    Alicia Silverstone
    Say what you will about the cultural importance of music videos, but Alicia Silverstone thought highly enough of her casting in Aerosmith's "Cryin'" video that she got her belly button pierced on camera and in character. So if she looks scared in the scene where she gets a needle in her abdomen, it's probably because she was.

    50 Cent
    Don't write 50 Cent off as just a blowhard tough guy rapper. 50 fell deep into his character for 2011's Things Fall Apart. Playing the part of a football player diagnosed with cancer, Cent dropped a whopping 50 pounds with an all liquid diet and three-hour treadmill stints for nine weeks. The result was almost too extreme to be believed.

    Jennifer Hudson
    The once curvy Jennifer Hudson started an intense diet to play South Africa's Winnie Mandela, but this transition has become more permanent. Hudson became such a fan of the weight-loss regime for the film that she's kept up with it, dropping more than 50 pounds to date.

    Noomi Rapace
    American audiences witnessed Rooney Mara transform into The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but the international crowd already had a look at Lisbeth Salander thanks to an equally committed Noomi Rapace. Like Mara, the Swedish actress went through a series of body piercings to do the iconic character justice
