6 actors who did everything and even more to get into character
If you treat film industry as a mere entertainment, let us change your mind. Sometimes a role requires unbelievable sacrifices from an actor. Let's learn how far a person can go to get into character!
Here are the most vivid examples for you!
1. Christian Bale lost 62 pounds to play role in the film called "The Machinist".
In the film, he weighs 120 pounds. He wanted to lose more, but the filmmakers didn't let him. At the end of the filming, he had only six months to regain the mass to be ready for his role in "Batman Begins". He ate lots of pizza and ice-cream for this purpose.
2. Adrien Brody starved to get into the character in "The Pianist".
In this regard, he had to put aside his car, his apartment and communications with siblings aside. However it was not enough - Adrien decided to stop eating. This experiment led him to despair that he successfully transferred into his persona. Subsequently, it took Adrien half of a year to return to the normal life.
3. Robert De Niro worked as a taxi driver to get ready for the role in "Taxi driver", 1976.
While preparing for the role, Robert De Niro got his taxi driver licence. He managed to fly from Rome to New York to drive during the breaks between filming.
4. Shelley Duvall had natural emotional exhaustion for her role in "The Shining".
The director of the film "The Shining", Stanley Kubrick, always required natural emotions from his actors. Sometimes the methods of getting them were quite unsafe. Shelley Duvall used to cry for 12 hours, bear intentional disrespect from her film crew and endless reproaches to have natural nervous exhaustion. As a result, Shelley had to "recover" after filming by drinking alcohol.
5. Robert William Hoskins had to visit a psychiatrist after his role in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", 1988.
Disney characters were painted after the shooting. Thus, Robert had to imagine animation characters for 8 months of filming. He later confessed that those characters hunted him for some time after the movie was ready.
6. Rooney Mara had to change her appearance greatly for her role in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo".
In order to impersonate a freak, Rooney Mara had to shave half of her hair and get her eyebrows, nose and lip pierced. What a brave girl!
