While some actors in Hollywood like to take things a little easy and not have to push themselves too much for their movie roles, there are also those that will go the extra mile to make sure that they performance is as good as it can possibly be. There have been a lot of actors in recent years, who have lost an incredible amount of weight for movie roles and here we take a look at some of them.
The first actor we are going to take a look at, is the talented star Adrien Brody, who has impressed on the big screen for many years now. Adrien Brody shed a lot of weight for his role in the movie The Pianist and it was all worth while, as Adrien went on to win the Best Leading Actor Oscar in 2002.
Next up we are looking at Matthew McConaughey, who has always been a star who has taken pride in his body, regularly seen running and working out to keep himself in great shape. Matthew lost around 50 pounds for his role in the movie Dallas Buyers Club and again it has been worth it, as McConaughey has been nominated for the Best Actor Oscar at this years Academy Awards.
Finally, we are giving you the hugely talented, former Batman actor, Christian Bale, who was a very muscular man in his Batman movies. Before first appearing as Batman in Batman Begins, Christian starred in the movie The Machinist, which required him to lose a ridiculous amount of weight. Who could ever forget that scene where you could see his ribs?
There are plenty more stars who have gone to extremes for movie roles, so feel free to share your favourites with us.
