Its no big secret that getting ahead in your professional life is all about sacrifice. For us in the conventional world, that usually means skipping our lunch breaks or leaving the office a little later then we’d like. This is certainly not the case for some of our favorite Hollywood celebrities. Just imagine having to shed a quarter of your body weight for career purposes. Well, thats exactly what 50 Cent had to do for his upcoming movie role in Things Fall Apart. While the rapper’s dedication to his film career may be an extreme case, plenty of leading men and ladies have undergone drastic transformations just for the prospect of a little golden statue.
Dont get us wrong, we love what we do, but not enough to put our health at risk. Fortunately for a lucky few, all that hard work chomping on donuts (Matt Damon we’re looking at you) pays off come award season, but more often then not, these bold celebs walk away empty handed and 50 pounds heavier or lighter, or just plain weird looking.
Take a look at our choices for the most drastic movie role transformations and ask yourself, would I do that for my craft? We think not! On second thought, maybe we would for a cool $10 mil.
