On the surface, the life of an actor appears to be a glamorous one. You get to live where the weather’s always beautiful in beautiful houses with beautiful people. Not bad! It’s not all just handed to you, though. There is an uglier side to being an actor, one that only lasts a little while and you get handsomely paid for, but still, especially in relation to the rest of their lives, it’s pretty ugly. This comparatively less-attractive side of the craft, of course, being getting into character. There seems to be no limit to where an actor will go physically or emotionally to become one with their character.

Wow. Some of these are even crazier than shelling out $13 for a movie ticket.
