Actors who hated their iconic on-screen costumes

Part of the magic of being an actor is completely disappearing into a role. Sometimes, however, that magic act relies heavily on a physical transformation as opposed to merely adopting new behaviorisms. Physical transformations like getting buff can have the added bonus of, well, being buff, but costumes are where things get a little annoying. And by "a little," we mean a lot. From having to sit through eight torturous hours worth of makeup, to sweating dangerous amounts inside full body suits during long shoot days, many actors' most iconic roles also feature the costumes they hated most. Click through to see which costumes actors hated the most, and why exactly they were so tormented by them.

Bodybuilders who became successful actors

Can you imagine a small, skinny Hercules or Hulk? Indeed, some roles have specific physical requirements that not all actors possess. And while nowadays it's easier than ever for actors to transform their bodies to play specific roles, this has not always been the case. Thankfully, we had bodybuilders with acting skills who transitioned into Hollywood and gave those characters the bodies they deserved. But for Dave Bautista, his body might be getting in the way. The former bodybuilder and WWE star said he wants to star in a rom-com but thinks his physique might be stopping him from cracking the genre. “I know I’m not your typical rom-com lead,” the 'Knock at the Cabin' actor told Page Six. “I’m a little rough around the edges. But I always, you know, I look in the mirror and I say, I ask myself, ‘Am I that unattractive? Is there something that unappealing about me that excludes me from these parts?'” Bautista added, “I don’t know. It’s just never come my way. I’ve never had an offer to do a rom-com. I still have high hopes. I’ll just keep searching.” Now that he has put it out into the headlines, don't be surprised if we see a movie about a former wrestler turned soft-hearted romantic who struggles to find love. Browse through the following gallery and check out the bodybuilders who became successful actors.

Famous figures accused of sexual misconduct

The era of #MeToo has brought waves of fresh sexual misconduct allegations against some prominent and powerful figures. It might seem like all of these accusations are new, but the fact is that victims are only just starting to feel more comfortable in sharing their experiences, and these acts of sexual misconduct and abuse have been going on for many, many years. The difference is that, now, people are paying attention. The disgraced R&B singer R. Kelly was arrested in 2019 after decades of abusing women and young girls and was put on trial in New York in 2021. He was convicted and sentenced, but still had more crimes to answer for. He appeared in court in Chicago for a second trial in August of 2022 and was found guilty once again, convicted on three counts of producing illicit material of minors and three counts of enticing minors for sex, each of which carries a potential sentence of more than 10 years. But a Chicago prosecutor said on January 30 that she’s dropping sexual abuse charges against Kelly despite his prior federal convictions which will already guarantee the disgraced R&B star will be locked up for decades. Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx announced the decision a day prior to a hearing related to state charges accusing him of sexually abusing four people, three of whom were minors. “While today’s cases are no longer being pursued, we believe justice has been served," Foxx said. The public is still learning how to deal with figures accused of sexual crimes and those who protect them, but by putting these stories in the spotlight, a discussion can be had about the power structures that enable these patterns, the faults our society has had in the past in dealing with them, and the steps we can take to do better. Read through this gallery to discover other defamed faces who have been accused of sexual misconduct.
