It's hard to imagine Charlize Theron looking anything less than flawless.

But, when she played serial killer Aileen Wuornos in the 2003 drama Monster, Charlize looked nothing like herself.

For the role, she gained 30 pounds and hid behind splotchy makeup and prosthetic teeth.

Charlize took home the Best Actress Oscar for her work and was back in shape in no time.

She's definitely had one of the best transformations but there are so many more!2

Christian Bale shed 63 pounds from his 6-foot frame for the dark 2004 drama, The Machinist.

He was pretty much unrecognizable!

It just goes to show how committed he really is to his craft.

After that role, he regained the weight (plus an extra 40) to play Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins.

"I had to put on the weight pretty fast and it's not very healthy doing that," he's said.3

"I did actually start to feel I was putting my body under too much pressure, because I put on 100 pounds in five months."

3. Nicole Kidman

I felt like I lost every ounce of my femininity."2
