Being an actor is not easy, we see only the glamour side but actors have to do a lot more to justify their characters. They have to change their looks with every performance. Sometime actors use a lot of makeup in order to look like their characters, but other times they have to transform their physical body as well. Charlize Theron had to gain 50 lb for her leading part in Tully. And Chris Pratt had to lose a lot of weight and pump up his muscles for Guardians of the Galaxy.
As actors themselves know, it’s a job that needs incredible amounts of skill and dedication. It often goes far beyond slipping into character to deliver a few lines here and there.
