* The actresses playing the maids in ''Series/DowntonAbbey'' were dressed down considerably to look plainer and less glamorous than the aristocrats.

* Creator/RikMayall frequently covered up his PrettyBoy / {{Bishonen}} good looks with grotesque costumes, make-up, and pulling faces for several of his roles in ''Series/TheYoungOnes,'' ''Series/TheComicStripPresents'' and ''Series/Bottom''. Fellow comedian Andy de la Tour even commented "Rik was a very beautiful man, but in every character he played, he made himself ugly."

* The normally very beautiful Lena Headey sports some very nasty looking facial scars, cracked lips and bad teeth in ''Film/{{Dredd}}'' while playing former prostitute turned drug baron Mama.

* Ana Maria Orozco, the original Betty in ''Series/YoSoyBettyLaFea'', especially when compared with her [[UglyBetty Anglo counterpart]] who was HollywoodHomely at worst. The Colombian producers went the whole nine yards on transforming Orozco: no makeup, bad haircut, the ugliest glasses possible, orthodontics... they even hired an expert to choose specifically the most unflattering colors and styles to dress her, then the writers incorporated that knowledge on the script to justify and explain her eventual makeover and her business plan.

* Some well-applied zombie makeup was enough to make the incredibly handsome JamieBamber look utterly horrible during a guest stint on ''Series/GhostWhisperer''. There's also his appearance on Series/{{House}}, where he starts out looking like his usual gorgeous self, but his looks worsen as his condition does--yellowing skin, bulging eyes, etc--until finally, the site of him laying on a bed wearing nothing but boxer shorts is completely undercut by the fact ''his skin is peeling off''. Quite jarring considering that he's usually MrFanservice in whatever he's starring in.

* Kate [=McKinnon=] is likewise a very beautiful lady. In ''{{Film/Ghostbusters2016}}'' she's dressed down with MessyHair, constantly seen in overalls and portrayed as something of an oddball.

* Creator/MerylStreep as the Witch in ''Film/IntoTheWoods''. Like Thompson above, she said it took more makeup to make her look beautiful later in the film than to make her look ugly for the majority of her screentime.

* Creator/CharlizeTheron as Aileen Wuornos in ''Film/{{Monster}}''. The actress [[DyeingForYourArt gained between 25 and 30 pounds]], shaved her eyebrows, and wore prosthetic teeth. As such, she looked completely unrecognizable in character and got the Best Actress Oscar in a walk.

* For her recurring role as Estelle in ''{{Series/Friends}}'' June Gable wore an unflattering wig, too much jewellery and UncannyValleyMakeUp. She also affected a voice to suggest the agent had been a chain-smoker for years.
