Imagine if your day job consisted exclusively of acting out emotional situations in front of uninterested crew members so that millions of people could subsequently assess your performance. This is why some actors will go to great efforts to remain in character. We’ve already discussed some of the weirdest things actors have done to prepare for renowned parts, but there’s simply so much insanity in this story that we had to return to it. So we at Animated Times decided to let people know who these celebrities are that did some strange things for Famous Roles.

10. Kate Winslet:


We’ve discussed how Kate Winslet went to great efforts to play Hanna Schmitz in The Reader, which earned her the Academy Award for Best Actress. But that pales in comparison to what she did for her breakthrough role. As difficult as it is to believe, Winselt was a relative unknown when she basically chased filmmaker James Cameron to urge him to cast her as Rose in Titanic. Then she discovered his personal phone number and contacted him while he was travelling on the motorway to lobby for the part, and she delivered him a bouquet of roses with the inscription “From your Rose.” Of course, she afterwards promised, like many other actors, that she would never work with Cameron again since he is also crazy.

9. Johnny Depp:


Johnny Depp is a lot of things, one of which is “bizarre lunatic.” We’ve previously discussed how he prepared for his character in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by doing dangerous things, but did you know he modelled his portrayal in Edward Scissorhands on his childhood dog? To be honest, we can see a little bit of it. He’s made other odd decisions in his career, such as impersonating Michael Jackson as Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and modelling his speaking patterns and movement as Captain Jack Sparrow after Keith Richards.

8. Shia LaBeouf:


While Shia LaBeouf is an underestimated actor, one of the least unexpected things about him is that he goes to excruciating measures to get into a character. We’ve already addressed several amusing situations, but we’d like to go into more depth about the time he videotaped himself on acid and then forced his buddies to watch the video. According to the actor, it dawned on him while rehearsing for The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman that he had never experienced LSD before. So, because he was portraying a character who had acid trips, he did the only logical thing and tried acid for real. Then he recorded it and emailed it to his co-stars for comments and recommendations. Because it is, without a doubt, how acting works.

7. Jared Leto:


The worst type of over-the-top method acting is unquestionably the kind that a) makes you appear like a jerk and b) is for a bad picture. We’ve previously told you about Jared Leto’s Joker-prep for Suicide Squad, in which the actor notoriously tortured his coworkers for the purpose of a half-written, pandering narrative. But there’s a lot more. Along with making everyone on set refer to him as “Joker,” the actor alleges he delivered his coworkers “used condoms,” an act that never helps any working relationship. Director David Ayer subsequently explained that the condoms were “used” in the sense of being “taken out of the box,” making him the irritated father of Leto’s edgelord adolescent.

6. Angelina Jolie:


In the current world, Gia Carangi battled with drug addiction and solitude, making it difficult to totally understand her depiction. Angelina Jolie decided to meet the objective halfway, thinking that the part (to which she felt emotionally attached) would help her “purge her demons.” To completely embody her character’s loneliness, she severed links with her friends and even refused to talk to her then-husband, Jonny Lee Miller, telling him, “I’m alone; I’m dying; I’m homosexual; I’m not going to see you for weeks.” extremely intense, but also questionable, given that they separated shortly after the release of this film.

5. Margot Robbie:


Before you ask, no, Margot Robbie did not have to do all of the complex ice skating moves for I, Tonya, but rather had her face replaced by a double for much of the film. After all, throwing your leading lady over rock-hard ice while wearing knife shoes is not a good idea. It’s not a good idea for anyone to do that. With that stated, Robbie made an attempt to skate as much as she was permitted, frequently appearing in 30-40 seconds of each routine. And she did it by really learning to skate – practising five days a week for four hours a day. That equates to twenty hard hours each week!

4. Robert Pattinson:


No offence, but this future Batman already appears to be the sort of shady scruff who would sleep in his clothes in a filthy cellar. However, when it came time to portray a scumbag bank robber in Good Time, the actor did just that, spending two months as a shut-in living in a basement flat. Along with living like a sewer dweller, Robert Pattinson never opened his curtains, never changed his bedding, and slept in his clothes, maintaining such weird hours that he managed to frighten his neighbours. At least, that’s what he believes. It’s conceivable they were just scared of vampires.

3. Tom Cruise:


A solid rule of thumb is that if Tom Cruise wears strange-looking hair in a movie, he’s probably up for an Oscar. Along with reminding us that Cruise is a good actor, Collateral is one of the few times he plays a terrible person. It’s also one of the coolest role-playing exercises on this list. In order to play a skilled murderer convincingly, the actor not only got weapons training, but also practised going unnoticed in public. He accomplished this by simply going out in disguise, typically as a delivery guy, and hoping no one would notice he was an international sensation. Fortunately for him, it worked!

2. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson:


A film like 2014’s Hercules does not need frightening levels of actor devotion in order to recoup its $100 million dollar budget. If anything, it simply has to be silly and entertaining enough to have a successful opening weekend. It didn’t take long for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to pass out from screaming. And yet… that’s exactly what happened in a scenario in which the titular figure tries to break free from his shackles. According to the actor, he demanded actual metal shackles to represent his fight. Yes, it was! Because he also blacked out each of the eight times he performed the scenario.

1. Nicolas Cage:


Society has long abandoned any attempt to comprehend the dizzying array of acting and inflection options locked away within Nicolas Cage’s mind. As proven by practically everything he has ever done, he is the chaotic-neutral of performers. And, on the commercial front, there’s Ghost Rider. The actor insisted on wearing full makeup on set while playing a character whose entire head was replaced by CGI. To fully immerse himself in the persona, he wanted to appear “like an Afro-Caribbean figure called Baron Samedi.” To be clear, this was done at no one’s desire.
