* Almost all the women in the movie version of ''Literature/{{Push}}''. Music/MariahCarey (Precious' social worker, pictured above) is the most obvious example, but the lead actress Gabourey Sidibe was also made to look larger using unflattering clothes.

* Nicholas Hoult in ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad''. To quote [[http://io9.com/do-you-realize-mad-max-fury-road-is-a-miracle-1707000166 one article]]: "Hire one of Hollywood�s youngest, most attractive stars, then shave his head, paint him bone white, and have him play a character with disgusting chapped lips for the entire movie."

* Creator/JohnnyDepp had his head shaved (''by Creator/HunterSThompson'') and wore huge glasses in Creator/TerryGilliam's ''{{Literature/Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas}}''. BenicioDelToro just put up a lot of weight and a leatherman's moustache. They both looked quite unspectacular in result. But it was the brilliant acting that made them truly offputting.

* Creator/JudeLaw played a slimy, gaunt, brown-toothed, heavily balding photographer/assassin in ''Film/RoadToPerdition'' with [[spoiler: disfiguring facial scars in the end]]. Like in ''Literature/AnnaKarenina'' he made himself balding, grew a big beard, and gave hims spectacles and wrinkles to make himself look older and unattractive. And in ''Film/{{Contagion}}'' he has snaggle-teeth to point out that he's the bad guy.

* James Franco donned various prosthetics and put on a wig for his role as Creator/TommyWiseau in ''Film/TheDisasterArtist''. Nonetheless, he still looks far better than [[LooksLikeCesare the real Tommy]].

* Creator/BlakeLively, a very glamorous blonde, in ''Film/TheTown''. She plays a trashy alcoholic who layers the make-up on and looks constantly spaced out. Critics were shocked.

* Creator/BlakeLively, a very glamorous blonde, in ''Film/TheTown''. She plays a trashy alcoholic who layers the make-up on and looks constantly spaced out. Critics were shocked. She also did this in ''The Rhythm Section'', disguising herself as a homeless woman and adopting various other disguises. It became a RunningGag during production of the film for tabloids to report "Blake Lively looks unrecognisable..." In ''Film/TheShallows'' her character also ends up with a nasty gash along her legs, sunburn all over her body and other unsightly blemishes brought on by spending the day trapped at sea.



* Some well-applied zombie makeup was enough to make the incredibly handsome Creator/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.

* 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."

* Creator/AmySedaris is another comedian who is attractive in real life, yet prefers playing unattractive characters. The Creator/DavidSedaris essay "Shiner Like A Diamond" noted how she is easily the most attractive member of the family, yet all her life she enjoyed hiding it under wigs and prosthetics. She has said in interviews as well that she's never comfortable doing straight-up sexy, she can't help but add some sort of goofy element to it.
** Don't forget her "fatty suit".

* ''Film/StellaMaris'':
** Creator/MaryPickford played one of the earliest examples in the 1918 film ''Stella Maris''. She played the titular Stella in her normal look but [[ActingForTwo also played]] the plain and homely Unity Blake as well. Unity is the least attractive girl at her orphanage while Mary Pickford was known for her cherub cute looks.
** Marcia Manon played TheAlcoholic Louise. She had MessyHair and looked like she was in a permanent stupor.
