10 Actresses who were brave enough to sacrifice their beauty for a role (10 pics)


We can recognize a good actor and actress by their roles, for which they tried to perform as best they could. Of course, they know how to get into the role to the maximum, to transform because of that role so much that we can’t recognize them, that’s why we respect them and admire them when they do their job extraordinarily.

We present to you 10 actresses who sacrificed their beauty and played the role of an unattractive woman and delighted us.

1. Kate Winslet

Although she often had the roles of beautiful women, she starred in “The Reader” as an illiterate German woman who was convicted for the death of hundreds of people. Thanks to a make-up artist and of course perfect acting, Kate won an Oscar for this movie.

2. Natalie Portman

She is a really diverse actress, as we could see in many movies. A real example of this is the movie “V for Vendetta” where she had to shave her head, but let’s not forget the movie “Goya’s Ghosts” where she played the victim of the Spanish Inquisition, as you can see in the photo on the left.

3. Cameron Diaz

It is very difficult to imagine her in the role of an unattractive woman, but in the movie “Being John Malkovich” she had the opportunity to do so. She didn’t have make-up, and a lot of curls on her head made her look just the way she needed to for this role, which is why she received awards such as BAFTA and a Golden Globe.
