4 Sensational Movie Star Makeovers Of 2013

Even Hollywood’s brightest stars get makeovers on occasion. Often required to transform their looks in the process of getting into character for their film roles, celebrities have been known to shed their glamour and fashion cred for the sake of authenticity – and the possibility of an Oscar nomination down the line (think Charlize Theron in Monster). Over the years we’ve seen A-listers go through rapid weight loss/gain and drastic hairstyle changes; like the tragic moment Kristen Stewart cut off her beautiful tresses for her role as Joan Jett in The Runaways.

In 2013, the line up of celebrity transformations is already pretty impressive. Let’s review this year’s best and worst movie star makeovers.

Top 4 Movie Star Makeovers of 2013  
  1. Nicole Kidman: Cast as Grace Kelly in the 2014 biopic Grace of Monaco, Nicole Kidman was recently treated to a movie star makeover that enhanced her natural beauty rather than detracted from it. The starlet was transformed into the late fashion icon Grace Kelly, who was known for her striking beauty and classic style. Ten years her character’s senior in the film, Kidman still managed to look sensational!
  2. Anne Hathaway: Gaining critical acclaim for her role in the 2013 film production of West End musical Les Miserables, Anne Hathaway chopped her long brunette locks into a cute pixie crop to play Fantine, the musical’s starving prostitute. The petite actress also lost 25lb for the role, a movie star makeover that left her looking rather waif-like. Her efforts have since been rewarded with an Oscar nomination.  
  3. Tom Cruise: Since his high profile divorce from Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise’s acting career has taken a bit of a dip. Things might be turning around for the Top Gun hottie, who will reprise the role of sleazy, overweight Hollywood producer Les Grossman from the 2008 comedy Tropic Thunder. The first movie was such a hit that Cruise has signed up for a spin-off film due out in 2014 – with a side order of fries.
  4. Renee Zelleweger: We’ll never forget the movie star makeover that saw a skinny Renee Zelleweger pile on two stone for the role of Bridget Jones, our favourite thirty-something single protagonist penned by Helen Fielding. With two successful films under her belt, Zelleweger is rumoured to have signed up for a third instalment of the film. She’s considering a fat suit this time round.   
Love them or hate them, Hollywood’s A-listers have undergone some drastic movie star makeovers for our entertainment. It also doesn’t hurt knowing that a haircut coupled with rapid weight loss is the road to critical acclaim. Take a bow Tinseltown.
