If you're new, Subscribe! → http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Looper We've all had tough days at the office. But some actors, dedicated to giving it their all, took their work a few steps too far. Though these critically-acclaimed, often award-winning performances are a delight to watch, the experience of preparing for and recovering from these roles did a number on the actors involved, and left a lasting impression — not always for the positive. Here are several actors who went the extra mile for their craft… Isabelle Adjani - Possession | 0:21 Adrien Brody - The Pianist | 0:50 Colin Firth - The King's Speech | 1:39 Hugh Laurie - House | 2:36 Bob Hoskins - Who Framed Roger Rabbit | 3:33 Heath Ledger - The Dark Knight | 4:12 Charlie Hunnam - American TV & Movies | 4:58 Janet Leigh – Psycho | 6:03 James Cromwell - Babe | 6:33 Christopher McDonald - Happy Gilmore | 7:31 Read more here → http://www.looper.com/68370/actors-never-role/ Film and TV Theories https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOzaghBOlEsf1EjjXEqYZ3cr1Va9eP68j 12 Film Theories That Change Everything https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpwRA9KQnWU&list=PLOzaghBOlEsf1EjjXEqYZ3cr1Va9eP68j&index=18 7 Marvel Characters Who Won't Survive Phase 3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txeT2Do6kl8&list=PLOzaghBOlEsf1EjjXEqYZ3cr1Va9eP68j&index=12 5 More Film Theories That Change Everything https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RbPCCSbxXM&list=PLOzaghBOlEsf1EjjXEqYZ3cr1Va9eP68j&index=17 How The Walking Dead Could End https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYixr55HA10&list=PLOzaghBOlEsf1EjjXEqYZ3cr1Va9eP68j&index=13 5 Fan Theories That Totally Change TV Shows https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qP4SaMgBFYo&list=PLOzaghBOlEsf1EjjXEqYZ3cr1Va9eP68j&index=2 5 Movies That Strangely Predicted Real-Life Deaths https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuAacTFzL00&list=PLOzaghBOlEsf1EjjXEqYZ3cr1Va9eP68j&index=10 Website → http://www.looper.com/ Like us → https://facebook.com/loopermoviestv/ Follow us → https://twitter.com/looper Instagram → https://instagram.com/looperhq/ Looper is the go-to source for the movies, TV shows and video games we all love.

You all forgot Jackie Chan who did most of his stunts himself. Some stunts led to pretty bad injuries . At one point he even had to have brain surgery because he slammed his head while doing a stunt from a tree

Probably the biggest life changing film for an actor, in this case two actors, was the 1966 film Born Free. Its two main actors, Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna played George and Joy Adamson, a couple that raised a lion cub called Elsa. The tale so affected the stars, that they went on to be instrumental in forming the world wide renown charity, the Born Free Foundation.

That Joker was absolutely diabolical. I watched the original Batman series as a kid, but the Ledger Joker was no joke. More psychotic than Hannibal Lecter.

Cannibal Nectar (29 days ago)
I love how these super rich people think that pretending to be someone fucked up makes them actually fucked up, like are they so weak that it can affect them that bad or is it just everyone around them believing their bullshit and making it real that way. These actors seem like such broken people that are nobodies, they only have the personality we put on them, and they soak it up to get to be someone? Strange people they all seem to be a step outside of reality at all times. Maybe that’s what makes them great actors tho, they have no true self anymore and don’t live in a fixed reality like us, they have to make up new ones constantly.

What about Daniel Day Lewis? Possibly the best actor ever! He IS the personality he portrays in movies. I have never doubted he was a quadriplegic in “My Left Foot,” nor his Native American portrayal in “Last of the Mohicans,” or “There Will Be Blood.” He’s an amazing actor and I understand he never left character no matter what the role

After that movie, for decades now, I've been buying only CLEAR plastic shower curtains. They're really shower curtain LINERS. So, I can see through them as if there's no shower curtain at all.

I like how Charlie Hunnam's toll was his accent lol. If you live somewhere long enough, you pick up the accent without necessarily losing your original. I was born and raised in Illinois for 7 years but spent the majority of my life in California but I've had people recognize minor Midwestern dialects in my speech.

I notice him limping on different legs from time to time as a matter of fact both of The Times that I watched the show he was limping on a different leg then what I had seen in the advert for the show so I never watched it because of that. I went online to see if it was a trope something that the character just did from time to time and there was nothing there about it but I watched it with my own eyes. I'm in the health fields I notice stuff like that.

I ❤ love this. I have morbid curosity for this kinda stuff. Im sure alot of actresses & actors that didn't make this that should have. Alotta of them devle so deep into the roles they are playing that lose themselves. There comes a point while they're filming a move Where they don't know where the character ends & they begin.

who thinks Charlie Hunnam and Heath ledger looks are identical?
Art Carvajal Jr. (1 month ago)
Fascinating video, but what intrigues me the most is; do actors who play positive roles involving bravery, strength, love, confidence, success etc. come away with those positive traits in real life? And could the average person use acting as a means of gaining positive traits and transforming themselves? I've heard this called The As If Principle.

Caradine the one that played the role in Kung Fu the 70s series, he should have been in this , he started thinking he was actually Qui Chane Kang , he would show up on talk shows with no shoes on , I’m pretty sure years latter he admitted that he had to quit the show because the role was taking over his mind , I think Keanu Reeves had a little left over from that one movie he played a stoner in , in the rest of the movies he’s done since I can see the Stoner sneaking out and it looks like he has to push him back in .
