These Actors Played The Role Of Opposite Sex In Movies. #8 Is Awesome!

We all certainly appreciate actors for their work and character. We also would want to get noticed as the best "fan-follower" by commenting and hitting 'like' on all their pictures and statuses they post on Facebook and Instagram. We never forget to follow their tweets and often wish to have the stylish dresses and haircuts they wear in the movies. But a part of our brain considers acting, the most lavish and highly paid job, and it kinda makes me jealous. It seems easy. However, the other side of us who is aware of what our actors go through to entertain the colossal audience will ultimately beat the feeling of jealousy. The stunt, exercises, body modifications, makeup, the chemistry and, the superb acting is not at all a child's play. They do loads of hard work and practice, to satisfy each and every person who spends to watch them onscreen. They are truly our heroes. Kudos to them!

This time, we are going to surprise you with the incredible thing actors have done in their movies. They pushed their limits and came out of their comfort zones in order to innovate new ways to entertain us. The male actors acted as actresses and the actresses as actors, but they seem too lost in their role that it's quite tough for people to identify them. They appeared completely different, after changing attire and wearing some makeup. Indeed, the work of makeup artist is appreciable who made them look totally unrecognizable but it's not all about the makeup, the talent behind it gave their role a life. It truly shows that they love their work so much that they would go to any height to give the best and satisfactory performances in their acts.

Just scroll down and see the amazing celebrities.
