Actors Who Were Never The Same After A Role

79343 ratings | 15482769 views
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.

What other actors should've made this list?
caitlinjane92 (6 days ago)
Farrah Fawcett when she starred in the controversial 1986 drama "Extremities." From what I heard, though the movie helped her escape from being typecast as a "dumb blonde" as she had been when doing "Charlie's Angels," doing that film messed her up psychologically and she unfortunately got typecast again in movies and TV shows she did afterwards, but this time as a "troubled/disturbed woman." I've seen the movie more than once and I can't help but get the feeling that she may have indeed been sexually assaulted at some point in her personal life and she was just reliving that trauma while doing the movie. Sadly, we'll never know for sure since she died of cancer at the age of 60 ten years ago.

Fred MacMurray. theres a story he used to tell about after his role in the apartment, a woman confronted him & slapped him saying she knew him as a wholesome guy & took her granddaughter to this dark film. after that he said he wouldnt do roles like that anymore. following the apartment, he made 8 more films before his death, most of which are disney films.

Tupac should definitely be on this list. He was never the same after his role in "Juice". He, himself, said that that role stuck with him, changed him into who he was. Without Tupac playing a gangster in that movie and then mentally BECOMING one, the life, and death, of Tupac would have been completely different. Think about that shit, my friend.

Never heard of Charlie Hunnum. Christian Bale should definitely be on this list. There are likely other actors and actresses who were affected by a role but have never spoken about it.

skippytroll (1 month ago)
nope. is all bullshit. so many psycho traumas, just to make a list. so sad to try and make the one real lost soul to justify the rest. I lost myself in the role. But, who was there after their death to give their voice to say "I lost myself". No one. They were so into the role. Yet, no one actually heard them say that. We can just say they put themselves into it. Well, so we can say no one said they didn't say that, so if no one didn't hear them say they didn't do that, then we can say they did, cause no one can disprove it. So, carry on, make it as ya fake it ya lying cunts.

When you update your list make sure you make Brie Larson your number pick for her role in Captain Marvel and how it ruined her career of being casted for any role because people refused to pay for any movie she was in after that lol lol lol.

Charlie is a hack...lmfaooo met him last summer filming scenes near my house for Jungleland at Libads Tavern i was an extra in the scenes. He is no big name actor and will go nowhere in movies just a B list TV guy with SOA

Why is acting and performing such an important factor in or society. It has to be more than a motivational factor. Like a pillar or something
Mon1caLionheart (1 month ago)
I heavily expected Charlie Hunnam’s appearance on the list was gonna be about how hard a time he had letting go of the Jax Teller in himself after 8 years. He said it took him more than an year "This is the first experience I've had where a character just will NOT die. He was alive and well inside me and has unfinished business...and in an act of desperation I found myself online at 4 am. There are a thousand books to help with character development but not one on how to kill the fucker when you're done."

Very few actors who achieve FAME can handle it look at the lives of Elvis, Michael Jackson, now Jim Carrey its really sad perhaps they don’t stay grounded because nobody tells them “NO”. Even the “Divas” act ridiculous such as Miriah and Madonna look at Cher what has her life accomplished she looks pathetic yet so talented. It’s a shame because like I tell my kids these celebrities are getting paid to entertain us period; celebrities are suppose to take us away for 2 hours of our lives: not to speak of politics especially the celebrities who are so out of touch with reality. Just my opinion of course

One of Charlie Hunnams first rolled was undeclared. It's hilarious and he doesnt look the same AT ALL. Also Macauley Culkin and Party Monster. He visited Michael Alig in prison and then kind of demised into drug addiction. Obviously he had other issues that contributed but that was the actual trigger was working on that movie playing a hardcore addict.

With todays computer technology. No one should have to suffer physical changes to do a film. Nor, should they ever had to. Nor, made to sexually give all as they do. Corrupt judge allowed such miss treatment of actors and actresses.
