Where did Tom Holland go undercover for Spiderman Homecoming? 10 Actors Who Did Crazy Real Life Things For One Movie Role! Subscribe to our channel : http://goo.gl/ho3Hg6

Most actors in the world spend a few days, maybe a week in preparation for a role. It’s not that they don’t want to spend more time, it’s just the facts of life. Not every film has a multi-million dollar budget and endless amounts of time to create. Or they have a family and other obligations. But there are actors out there who find the time and propel themselves to infamy for what they did to prepare. Shia Labeouf had a tooth pulled from his mouth, went months without bathing, and spent days watching horses die. Kate Winslet spent months living life like a nazi woman and almost lost her sanity. It took her years to recover. 50 cent spent months with cancer patients and lost 50 lbs for his role. Jim Carrey had lawler performa piledriver on him and he spent every minute of his life as though he was really Andy. Tom Hanks almost died and had to have surgery when he spent weeks in water to his neck and he also spent six years developing the script for Cast Away with the writer. Heath Ledger took the Joker character to a world we will never see again. He spent six weeks locked in a hotel room developing the character’s every mannerism. Natalie Portman lost 20 lbs when she already was very slender and ate only carrots and almonds spending eight hours a day training as a dancer. Hilary Swank became confused over her own gender after spending months as the character and almost didn’t come back. Jamie Foxx modeled his career after Tom Hanks and landed his first Oscar for playing Ray Charles. Tom Holland went back to high school to learn what it is to be a student in America. These actors all took their roles to new levels, landed themselves in cinema’s history books, and changed the face of how to prepare for a role.

  10. BradPCGamer says

    I will never forget Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker, he did an amazing job! – Also, Tom Holland is awesome too, can’t wait for Spiderman Homecoming 🙂

    1. BradPCGamer says

      That’s the key word for Heath’s portrayal of the Joker…. UNIQUE. No one has played the character better and in my opinion, he put the most work into it and 100% got the best result! I just wish he was still alive today.

    2. Ban Greed says

      yes his hardwork really payoff. if he’s still alive I’m pretty sure he can improve his Joker more. for me he is my true hero

    3. BradPCGamer says

      That’s nice of you to say 🙂

  17. Daniel Lewis says

    I saw Jim Carrey play Andy Kaufman before I saw the real Andy Kaufman.  And compared to Jim Carrey, the real Andy Kaufman looks like he is half assing it.

    1. Daniel Lewis says

      Just like Gary Oldman as Sid Vicious.

  18. Assultica says

    Went back to school? Been there and done that but I’ll NEVER do it again.

  19. Caidyn says

    I had to have done the craziest thing in my life for a role in a play. I was playing the duck in the “duck song” and just to get my body into the mood for my part, I had to eat nothing but grapes for 9 years. After the nine years of practicing for the big play, I forgot my lines and died on the stage in front of the entire audience. True story 😉
