6Alex Skarsgard as Tarzan in "The Legend of Tarzan"

Even though "The Legend of Tarzan" was slammed by critics, we must admit that Alex Skarsgard's transformation for this movie was rather impressive. But according to his trainer, their goal wasn't a traditional gym body, because they wanted Tarzan to look more similar to his primate family. They even went as far as to build an obstacle course in actor's home.

7Henry Cavill in "Man of Steel"

There's no doubt that the role of Superman in "Man of Steel" launched Henry Cavill's career. But he didn't just transform his body; he also changed his whole attitude. Cavill went to great lengths to have the body of the superhero, and given the fact how amazing he looked in the movie, we have to say that his hard work definitely paid off.

8Will Smith in "Ali"


It took eight years for Will Smith to accept the part of the legendary boxer, Mohammad Ali. By his own admission, Smith wanted to be 100% certain that this was the role he was born to play. Once he accepted it, the actor dedicated himself entirely to this role. Not only did he learn all the boxing moves, but was also able to learn how to speak in Ali's unusual dialect.

9Bradley Cooper in "American Sniper"

Bradley Cooper isn't exactly an actor you would imagine as Chris Kyle, a former Navy SEAL veteran and sniper who was a 230-pound bear of the man. But Cooper proved he can transform himself as he added 40 pounds of muscles. And he did so by eating almost 6,000 calories every day.

10Chris Evans as Captain America

Chris Evans gained quite a bit of muscle for his role as Captain America. And he did so by hiring the same trainer who helped Daniel Craig bulk up for Bond. The workouts were brutal, but the actor was able to endure. There was some serious heavy lifting involved in the process, and not one bit of cardio, as the actor himself confirmed. Otherwise, he wouldn't be able to get so big for the role.
