Dedicated actors often make great sacrifices to immerse themselves in the character. One of the most difficult transformations is gaining weight for a particular role. SSPDaily has prepared information about five celebrities who have taken on this challenge.

Renee Zellweger

To transform into the iconic British loner Bridget Jones, the actress underwent significant changes in her appearance. The graceful star willingly gained 13 kg for both the first and second films. Her dedication to the character brought critical acclaim and further cemented her place in Hollywood.

Charlize Theron

Known for her chameleon-like abilities, Charlize Theron underwent a remarkable physical transformation for her role as a mother of three in Tully. The American actress added a staggering 22 kg to her figure. However, this experience had a negative impact on her mental health. Theron said she struggled with depression during and after filming. Despite all the difficulties, her skills have been widely recognized around the world.

Matt Damon

In preparation for his role as Mark Whitacre in the 2009 film The Informant, director Steven Soderbergh asked Damon to gain 18 kg. His willingness to make such changes demonstrates his great dedication to acting.

Ryan Gosling

In 2009, Ryan Gosling decided to gain 27 kg for his role in the movie The Lovely Bones. However, his decision to do so without consulting director Peter Jackson had unpredictable consequences. After Gosling arrived on set, Jackson decided to replace him, leaving the actor out of work. Eventually, Mark Wahlberg was invited to play the role of Jack Salmon.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Everyone knows that Gwyneth Paltrow leads a healthy lifestyle. However, she broke her routine to play an alcoholic in the movie Hard Eight. Instead of wearing a special costume, the actress decided to gain 9 kg. Although she coped well with the weight gain, Paltrow compared this challenging experience to a nightmare.
