The amazing talent of actors and actresses will lead you to believe they ARE the role they’re playing. Make-up and costume add to the effect to transform the talent into someone completely different on-screen. The magic of Hollywood magically creates an effect that is real to each and every one of us. What we have here is an amazing list of behind the scenes photos that is going to alter your perception of that reality. Seeing these actors and actresses in a different light really adds to the level of respect I have for their talents and helps me gain appreciation for their abilities to make us believe they are something that they’re not.

With so many fantastic movies out there, it’s hard to think of the actors as actual real people. They’re just like you and me. They laugh, play with kids, make jokes, take breaks and eat. I hope these 50 photos helped you to see the actors in a different light and gain a little appreciation for the talent and time put into some of your favorite movies.
