Actresses are known for undergoing dramatic transformations before playing a certain role. That is their way to get ready and to perfectly portray the person they are playing. Some of them need to gain or lose weight, others need to dye or cut their hair. Throughout the years we witnessed a lot of transformations that are very admirable. Take a look at the video to see the leading actresses who sacrificed their long hair for a role.
Just recently the popular supermodel Cara Delevingne announced that she plans to concentrate on her acting career. She surprised everyone when she debuted a shaved head for her upcoming movie “Live in a Year”. She still rocks a blond buzz cut and stuns every single time she appears somewhere. Cara started a huge trend, with celebrities such as Katy Perry following her short haircut.
Another huge surprise was the picture of Kate Hudson with an extremely short cut. Kate was spotted by paparazzi with a shaved head. The actress revealed that she had to cut her signature golden curls for the needs of her upcoming movie. The mega-popular singer Sia will also star in the same film.
Aside from these fresh hair transformations, many other iconic actresses have undergone the same changes for a certain role. For example, Cate Blanchett had to get a buzz cut for the movie “Heaven” back in 2002. Angelina Jolie also rocked a buzz cut in the movie “Gia”. She portrayed the famous supermodel from the 70s and 80s Gia Carangi. Hilary Swank threw an epic performance in “Boys Don’t Cry” in 1991. She played a trans man named Brandon Teena, and the movie was based on a real-life story. This brought Hilary an Oscar award. Other great actresses that drastically cut their hair for a role are Kristen Stewart, Tilda Swinton, Demi Moore, Natalie Portman, Charlize Theron, Karen Gillian, Anne Hathaway and more.
The villain Maleficent has never been so glamorous before! Many of you might be looking forward to the new Disney film “Maleficent” featuring Angelina Jolie in the leading role. There is already one more thing to be excited about, since MAC is announced to create a special Jolie-inspired Disney makeup collection in spring 2014. In the film, Toni G created the perfectly evil looks of Jolie, while the special effects were left to the professional work of Rick Baker – a former MAC collaborator. Jolie’s image as a sinister hero is really successfully worked out here, and makeup is one of the primary factors having contributed to the creation of it. Thus, as it has already been with Cruella De Vil and Snow White’s Evil Queen, a whole makeup collection is planned to be created thoroughly based on this character, too.
The MAC Maleficent makeup collection is said to be composed of 11 units, intended for face makeup, eyes, and nails. The thing that is especially significant about this collection, is that in spite of being based on a negative character-inspired theme, it will provide you with really useful and femininity accentuating touches, which on the other hand demonstrate the successfully created similar accents in the film, too. So it’s not all about creating a negative and evil character but about gifting that character with some extremely feminine and mystique traits, as well. This motive can be found in case of other Disney film villains, too. So what else if not a makeup collection might best describe these principles!
We can’t state anything for sure about the drives and directions the new MAC Disney spring 2014 makeup line will take but we know one thing about the movie part certainly. If you are impatient to see it on big screens, than the lucky date for you is going to be in May 2014. And we are really impatient to learn more about what MAC thinks about this, too!
