Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Jared Leto and other actors had to make up themselves to be able to play a role!

Recently, we revealed to you the actresses who had to look ugly to play in a film or a series like Vanessa Hudgens, Charlize Theron or Naomi Grossman. Today, make way for men! Because no, it’s not just women who have had to make physical efforts to get a role. These actors have sacrificed themselves and have not hesitated to transform themselves physically. These transformations are often synonymous with rewards, we think of Brad Pitt (Oscar for Best Actor in 2009) or Matthew McConaughey (Golden Globe for Best Actor in 2014). So in this article, don’t expect to see handsome kids but rather actors capable of anything.
