Top 15 Celebrities Body Transformations For A Movie Role That Stunned The World

By Milos Kitanovic, 19 November 2017


These actors went to great lengths to prepare for their roles in some of the Hollywood's most popular movies. So today, we are counting down our picks for the top 15 most impressive body transformations for a movie role.

1Christian Bale in "Batman Begins"

Let's start our list with one of the most dedicated actors out there, Christian Bale. The British actor is known for his transformations, but his biggest one happened when he bulked himself up to play Bruce Wayne in "Batman Begins" just months after he played the insomniac in "The Machinist" where he looked as skinny as the person can be.

2Chris Hemsworth in "Thor"

To play the god of thunder in "Thor," Hemsworth had to look the part. And if that was not impressive enough, he landed a role in the movie "Rush," where he had to drop a significant amount of weight to play Formula-1 World Champion James Hunt. Only to bulk up again for another "Thor" movie. His secret? Switching from a heavy weightlifting and eating as much as he possibly can to a non-stop cardio with a lower calorie intake.

3Ryan Reynolds in "Blade Trinity"


A Canadian actor has always been in good shape, but he really stepped up his game for his role in the "Blade Trinity" for which he gained 25 pounds of pure muscle, but not before dropping 10 pounds first. As for the diet, Ryan could eat whatever he wanted as long as he had a meal every 2 hours. That combined with the three-hours-a-day workouts was more than enough for Reynolds to land the role in this movie.

4Hillary Swank in "Million Dollar Baby"

The first lady on our list is none other than a two-times Oscar winner Hillary Swank. And we don't have to look further than these two Academy Award-winning performances to see how talented she really is. First, she portrayed a transgender boy in "Boys Don't Cry," but the real transformation happened when she gained almost 20 pounds of muscle to play a waitress-turned-boxer in "Million Dollar Baby."

5Brad Pitt as Achilles in "Troy"

Before all the superheroes hit the big screens, there was Brad Pitt's Achilles from the movie "Troy." To be honest, this wasn't a big transformation since Brad has always looked shredded (just look at him in "Fight Club"), but this fact doesn't make the change in appearance any less impressive.
