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…

Looper - Janet Leigh never won an Academy award. She was nominated for Psycho and even won the Golden Globe but didn't win(imo she should have) but she never won an academy award. Get your facts straight.
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.
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
The movie psycho did have that shower scene as a kid it messed me up . Im 42 now and to this day I still open the curtain to look at the door.
It was much worse when I was a child...
Shouldve never been sneaky and watched that movie sure do regret that..
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.
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 .
You know this world? This sad, doomed little world? It needs you. It needs every last Winchester it can get, and I will not let you die. I wont let any of you die. And I wont let you sacrifice yourselves, you mean too much to me! To everything! Yeah, you made a deal. You made a stupid deal, and I broke it. Youre welcome.
Castiel is an angel. He manifests on Earth inside his vessel, Jimmy Novak. He is the only angel that is shown to have been resurrected after having been killed, and he has been resurrected more than once.
Many angels laid siege to Hell to rescue Dean, but it was Castiel who ultimately pulled Dean out. According to Castiel, he did so "Because God commanded it." His hand print was burned into Deans left shoulder. Castiel is amongst a group of angels who manifest on Earth to stop the breaking of the the 66 Seals which will release Lucifer and start the Apocalypse. Over time he develops an empathy for the Winchesters, in particular Dean. When he learns that Michael actually intends for Lucifer to be released so he can kill him, Castiel tries to warn Dean, but is punished. Ultimately he breaks allegiance with Heaven to side with humanity.
With Lucifer free, and Castiel cut off from Heavens power, he decides to try and find the long absent God. When he learns God is not interested in intervening to stop the Apocalypse, he is devastated. He works to support the efforts of Sam, Dean and Bobby in stopping the battle between Michael and Lucifer.
After Sams sacrifice to defeat Lucifer, Castiel tries to rescue him from Lucifers Cage, but fails to retrieve Sams soul. In an attempt to prevent Raphael from restarting the Apocalypse, Castiel is tempted into an alliance with Crowley. The demon offers to help find Purgatory which can provide them both with great power. His efforts mean Castiel becomes increasingly distanced from the Winchesters as he hides his efforts from them, to the extent of breaking Sams mind in order to hinder their pursuit of him.
After taking in the souls of Purgatory, Castiel kills Raphael. He claims that he is no longer an angel, but the new "God." After smiting many people he considered to be doing evil in Gods name, he blacks out and loses control of his vessel, and his powers, to Leviathans possessing him. Conceding to Dean and Sams wishes, Castiel attempts to return all the souls and entities inside him to Purgatory.
After the souls leave Castiel, he apologizes to Dean, and pledges to find some way of redeeming himself. His plans are cut short when the Leviathans, who managed to hold on, take over his vessel. As the vessel rapidly deteriorates, the Leviathans march it into a reservoir, where it disappears beneath the water, releasing them.
Castiel is later found wandering naked in the woods near the water with no memory of who he is by Daphne Allen, who claims that God led her to him. She takes him home, he takes on the name Emmanuel Allen, and they marry. He discovers he has a gift for healing.
While searching for a way to help Sam, whose psychosis is killing him, Dean hears about Emmanuel from another hunter, and is shocked to discover it is Castiel. Castiel eventually regains his memories, and is horrified at what he did. He tries to heal Sam, but unable to do so, he chooses to take Sams madness into his own mind.
