Actors are as close as people can get to being shape shifters. They take pride in their ability to completely change their personality and the way they walk and talk in order to bring a character to life on our TV screens. This is not an easy task since it requires dedication and a lot of work since the actor needs to know everything about that character in order to portray it better.
Leaving acting skills aside, another thing that helps actors get better into character is their makeup. Some roles require them to look really different from what they normally look like and that’s where makeup artists come in and help them out. What’s really surprising is that some actors are so convincing that people actually forget what they really look like. With that being said, here are 25 unattractive movie and TV show characters who actually look great in real life.
