These Hollywood A-listers are known for their gorgeous looks but they gave us a right fright when they underwent dramatic transformations for their roles on the big screen. Whether they gained weight, or wore a prothstetic nose, these stars will do just about anything to bag an Oscar.
Now, we know it's not all about looks but Nicole Kidman nearly had us fooled with this dramatic new style. Ditching the glamorous red carpet style, Nicole Kidman bare face and grey-haired for her role in the second series of Top of the Lake. ‘Top of the Lake: China Girl’ will broadcast on BBC Two in 2017.

The racing star, 31, shocked fans when he unveiled his bizarre new look on Snapchat. It's also got everyone speculating as to whether Lewis has bagged himself an acting role.
The 41-year-old Oscar-nominee certainly undertook a dramatic transformation for his latest film. Although we're fairly used to seeing the actor with a moustache and stubble, his bushy beard and added paunch were a departure from his usual clean and lean physic! Will DiCaprio win the 'Best Actor' award this year? Watch this space...
The usually buff actor showed off his film-friendly physic: "Just tried a new diet/training program called "Lost At Sea". Wouldn't recommend it... #IntheHeartoftheSea"
With his dashing looks, Johnny Depp had us drooling when starring in the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' series, however our jaws dropped when we saw his transformation for his role as Whitley Bulger in Black Mass.
Gosh where do we start? Tom Cruise looked unrecognisable when he sported a bald patch and a flabby tum for his role as Les Grossman in 'Tropic Thunder'. We can only hope that the 52-year-old actor doesn't have that much chest hair in real life!
We're used to seeing Nicole Kidman looking gorgeous on the red carpet, but she wasn't afraid de-glam for her role as Virginia Woolf in 'The Hours'. The red-headed beauty ditched her vibrant locks for drab tresses and wore a prothstetic nose.
Who knew the gorgeous Jared Leto could look so unattractive? The Oscar-winning actor put on a whopping 62lbs for his role as John Lennon's killer Mark David in 'Chapter 27.'
'In Da Club' rapper 50 Cent certainly stayed clear of those Bacardi's when he dropped the pounds to play a cancer victim. The usually bulky star's face looked emaciated as its reported he ran on the treadmill for three hours a day to shed the weight.
We normally envy Angelina Jolie for getting to kiss Brad Pitt everyday, but we weren't so jealous when he transformed in a elderly man for his role in 'Benjamin Button'. The hunky actor played a man who suffered a rare disease which sees him age in reverse.
We never thought we would see Charlize Theron in handcuffs! The blonde beauty gave us a fright when she transformed herself for her role as serial killer, Aileen Wuornos. Blotchy skin, drab hair and a mean face? That's not the Charlize we know and love.
If you normally drool over Christian Bale's hot bod in 'The Dark Knight Rises' then you were probably just as shocked as us when looking at the skinny frame he sported in 'The Machinist'. Picture: Photoshot
With big hair and glamorous dresses Mariah is the definition of diva, however she proved she wasn't afraid to get stuck into her role as a councillor in 'Precious'.
The hunky Matthew Mconnaughey went to great lengths to lose weight for his role as a HIV sufferer in 'Dallas Buyers Club', and while his moustache and sideburns aren't the least flattering he did bag an Oscar for his efforts.
