Not everyone is good at makeup.
While most people know the basics of makeup, they usually think that it is used by women who don’t feel confident in themselves. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. In reality, makeup is an umbrella term and there are many different art forms that sort of fall under it. FOr example, while prosthetics are a completely different thing, there is a lot of overlap. And we didn’t have the power of makeup, we would need a lot of CGI.
There is a reason that everyone says practical effects are better. If you really want to see bad CGI done on a face then you don’t need to look any further than Green Lantern. Well, today we are going to take a look at the other side. We have curated some of our favorite actors who played roles that we couldn’t even recognize them from. Some of it was because of movie magic while the other half was because of the styling and the makeup.
So just scroll below to take a look for yourself.
#1 Daniel Radcliffe (Horns)
I am well aware that not a lot of people watched Horns and a very small percentage of the people who watched this movie even liked it. However, I am one of those people as well. While this role was quite different than the iconic Harry Potter but I found Daniel Radcliffe quite endearing in this role. And this movie wouldn’t have been the same without him.
#2 Charlize Theron (Monster)
#3 Cate Blanchett (Manifesto)
#4 Bill Skarsgård (It)
I am a big fan of the movie It but I honestly did not know or even tried to research who played the iconic pennywise in this new adaptation. And I personally could have never guessed it.
#5 Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad)
People have a lot of opinions when it comes to this movie but most people have to admit that Margot embodied Harley Quinn like no other. And I honestly cannot imagine anyone else doing justice to this particular role.
#6 Sam Worthington (The Titan)
#7 Dan Stevens (Beauty and the Beast)
I think we can all admit that the CGI was bad but he tried his best with what he was given and that is all I can say.
#8 Doug Jones (The Shape of Water)
#9 Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour)
#10 Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road)
#11 Johnny Depp (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald)
#12 Halle Berry (Cloud Atlas)
#13 Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy)
#14 Richard Brake (Game of Thrones)
#15 Joel Edgerton (Bright)
#16 Jacob Tremblay (Wonder)
