Top 10 Actors Who Gained The Most Weight For A Role, All For The Oscar

Being an actor is not every day a game of hair with green bottoms and stuntmen under XXL wigs. Some take their job more to heart than others and will do anything to get into the character's soul; if a film involves gaining weight, crushing cockroaches or waxing their heads, chances are you will find one of the actors below.

1. Christian Bale for Vice and American Bluff

Hungern oder Futtern für eine Rolle gehört für Christian Bale zum Alltag. So sind die 20 Extrakilos, mit denen der Schauspieler 2019 im Kinofilm „Vice“ zu sehen sein wird, längst wieder Geschichte. Für seine Rollen geht Christian Bale (44) bekannterweise durch dick und dünn. So nahm...

Our ultimate champion is our Batman, the best Welshman I have ever named Christian Bale: 18 kilos of weight for the movie American Bluff and more recently 20 kilos for the movie Vice. The guy never stops and even less when it comes to losing twice as much for another role in the following week.

2. Jared Leto in Chapter 27

JARED LETO   (making of  ''CHAPTER 27'')

It's 2007: Jared Leto is handsome (like every other year), his rock band 30 Seconds to Mars is a hit, he starts pointing his nose at a few movies but often in a supporting role so good can do better. As a result, he decided to put the little dishes in the big ones and agreed to put on 30 kilos for the film Chapter 27. Too bad for him, the movie will make a big belly. No pun intended.

3. Viggo Mortensen in Green Book

In order to embody the true Tony Lip, Viggo Mortensen has chosen to penetrate body and soul, in the literal sense, into his character of a gluttonous Italian-American driver and a bit of a beauf on the edges. 20 kilos later, of which I think a lot of beer, the actor is unrecognizable, and charms the critics, which will earn him a nomination for the Oscar for best actor.

4. Vincent Cassel for L'ennemi public n°1

Mesrine : L'Ennemi public n°1

This man is still and always the fantasy of many people in the world (let's say it's a lot of people) with his French bad boy look that we love, so when it came to interpreting Mesrine, the 20 kilos and the beard quickly made the difference.

5. Charlize Theron in Monster

Charlize Theron |  Aileen (Canavar)

To play the role of a prostitute, Aileen Wuornos, Charlize had to gain 14 kg, a diet called harder better faster stronger made from chips and donuts to gain weight more quickly. The craziest thing is that three weeks after the shooting, she regained her figure as a Greek goddess. Become my Charlize bride.

6. Renée Zellweger for Bridget Jones

Bridget Jones's Diary (2001) - starring Renee Zellweger as Bridget Jones

Renée Zellweger, the nicest aka of all Bridget's, had to gain no less than 12 kilos for the eponymous film and to do so, she had a great time on pizzas, hamburgers and overall everything that is very fat and by extension delicious. After the shooting of the first part, she was called to play a dancer in "Chicago" and had to lose all those extra pounds. Champion.

7. Matthew McConaughey in Gold

GOLD — The renaissance of Matthew McConaughey takes a detour into the dark ages in Gold, a movie about greed, power and pride (familiar turf for the star) as Kenny Wells (Mc-Conaughey) strikes it rich mining for gold in Indonesia, and proves himself entirely unready for what happens next.

I grant you, this film didn't make too much noise but it doesn't prevent us from remembering that Matthew is an involved actor (but we already knew that with his massive weight loss in Dallas Buyers Club). In Gold, Matthew is my relatively bald and slightly less muscular faith than usual after gaining over 20 kilos to play a character pursued by the FBI after discovering gold in the Borneo jungle.

8. Sylverster Stallone for Copland


The transformation in question may not seem extraordinary and yet, for an actor with a curved muscle, gaining 19 kilos of fat must have been a shock. In order to play an overweight sheriff, our Sylvou crammed himself with giant pancakes in the weeks before the shooting.

9. Tom Hardy in Bronson

Why We Love Tom Hardy So Much

He had to do almost 2500 pumps a day for 5 weeks to gain 20 kilos, just like his delinquent character in the film. Small nature.

10. Robert de Niro in Raging Bull

Raging Bull 1980 Directed by Martin Scorsese Robert De Niro.

30 kg in 4 months, this is the miracle recipe for camping Jake LaMotta; the actor had to get up early in the morning before having a fat breakfast, just like all his other meals of the day. He also ate in all the 3-star French restaurants, where he tasted the most caloric dishes on the menu. #Trick!
