While it might not seem like it, movies are a form of art. The directors are taking a book or script that they’ve read, and they interpret it. Some are much more in-depth than others, but many are just as good as a piece of art we may see in a museum. With that being said, movies wouldn’t be anywhere if it wasn’t for their actors and actresses.
We’ve seen it time and time again where a good movie turns to crap because the actors weren’t committed or were just plain bad. Acting, like movie making, is an art. Over time, some actors have gained a reputation for being the best in the business. If you’re going to make a movie, you want these people leading. Some other actors also have a reputation for taking it a little too seriously, and occasionally, these two overlap.
Actors that take their role incredibly seriously are willing to do whatever it takes to turn the movie into a masterpiece. It’s not an easy task, but certain stars are known for doing just that. From dramatic weight loss to intense method acting, here are some of the most drastic examples of actors committing themselves 100% to a role.
