Hollywood actresses have been known to go to incredible extremes to gain specific looks for their roles. Anne Hathaway chopped off her hair and lost 25 pounds to play her Academy Award-winning role of Fantine in the 2012 movie version of Les Miserables. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Charlize Theron gained 30 pounds to play serial killer Aileen Wuornos and earn her Oscar for Monster (2003).
As it turns out, however, radical body transformation is not the only way for an actor to fully embody a role. Advances in prosthetic makeup can also create a desired look, as Emmy Rossum showed in her on-set photos that reveal her new appearance as the pop-culture figure Angelyne.
