Charlize Theron for her Oscar-winning performance as Aileen Wuornos in Monster.
Charlize had gained 30 pounds in the period of four months to transform her model-like physique into the tough woman of the streets.
Renée Zellweger did it twice.
Renée gained 20 pounds respectfully for each of the Bridget Jones movies. With her tinny 163cm frame she gobbled down many sugary snacks to transform herself into the big bottomed Bridget Jones.
Matt Damon’s role as Mark Whitacre in the 2009 film The Informant
Matt gained a whopping 30 pounds. By eating the way he did in college his 38 year old body just started piling it on.
The number one extreme transformation is Christian Bale for his role as an industrial worker suffering from insomnia in The Mechanist.
Christian lost an incredible 63 pounds by only consuming coffee and an apple a day.
These actors have gone to the extreme to give justice to their characters and in doing so have brought them to life. We thank you for your dedication, but please maintain those gorgeous bodies so that we can see more of you in the future.
