Being an actor looks really fun, doesn't it? You get to dress up and pretend to be other people for weeks and months on end? Yeah, mostly fun. Except when you're an actor and you have to go on a crazy diet to play a particular role in a movie. Not ideal.
Stylecaster.com has a list of 16 celebrities who shed lots of weight for a movie role and some of these are really crazy. Natalie Portman shed 20 lbs to play her Oscar-winning role of ballerina Nina in The Black Swan, Anne Hathaway went on an extreme diet to play Fontaine in Les Miserables last year, and Matthew McConaughey shed 47 (!!!) pounds in order to play an HIV-positive cowboy in the upcoming flick, Dallas Buyers Club. Whoa.
