To become a character externally, celebrities are forced to spend hours and hours putting on makeup. For some roles, that is enough. But others require more serious physical changes.
Some actors are so persistent that they work hard on themselves to fit the role perfectly. This can be done through body transformations. Actors have a job that requires them to become someone else, through voice, makeup, and just talented performances. But sometimes they have to transform themselves for a role by literally transforming their bodies to be much thinner or fatter than it used to be.
