5 actors and actresses who sacrificed their beauty to play a role in a movie

Sigourney Weaver

The story of Snow White has been the subject of several adaptations, including the horror film Snow White/Scary Tales, in which Sigourney Weaver played the role of the stepmother. The film was controversial with critics and audiences, but many people liked Sigourney’s acting. She was nominated for several awards, including an Emmy, but did not win.

Theron Edgerton

Usually, in biopic productions, the person on screen has nothing to do with the production. Sometimes it’s because the person is no longer alive, sometimes it’s because no one wants to help them, and sometimes the actors don’t bother to arrange to meet with them to develop their characters. . Elton John, however, is different. He was the executive producer of the film and actually wanted Theron Edgerton to play the lead role. The musician then advised the actor not to imitate him exactly, but to find his own image. Most interestingly, Theron, a huge Elton fan, sang all the songs himself and sang “Your Song” during his drama school audition.

Emma Stone

The 2017 film Battle of the Sexes, starring Emma Stone, is based on the true story of tennis player Bobby Riggs and tennis player Billie Jean King. Bobby pointed out that men’s tennis was much more interesting than women’s tennis, so men should be paid more. Soon after, an exhibition match between Bobby and Billy takes place, with unexpected results.

For the role, Emma gained seven kilograms of muscle. It should be noted that Emma initially turned down the role due to her busy schedule. Brie Larson, who played Captain Marvel, took the role instead, but Brie quickly turned it down as well. At this time, Emma’s schedule is freed up and she is busy filming Battle of the Sexes.

jim carrey

The Bad Batch was one of the most talked about movies of 2016. The studio seemed to believe it was trying to woo audiences with a big name, but it failed. The film only made $200,000 off a $6 million budget and was panned by critics. The film starred Jason Momoa, Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves and Diego Luna.

Jim Carrey played the lead role in the film in which he had no dialogue.

Margot Robbie

This film is based on the true story of figure skater Tonya Harding, who was involved in a terrible accident. For the role, Margot practiced on the ice all day and even tried to recreate the triple axel performed by Tonya Harding, but, of course, failed. Producer Tom Ackerley talked about the triple axel. He said that while some skaters were able to perform the triple axel, skaters at this level are busy training for major competitions and would not perform the triple axel for a movie for fear of injury. In Russia, many skaters are currently performing triple axels, including Kamila Valieva, Sofia Muraviyova and Sofia Samodelkina.
