to:

* Helen Slater cut off her hair for ''Film/TheLegendOfBillieJean''. She had elbow length blonde hair at the time and it was cropped almost completely short. Averted with Yeardley Smith, who refused to cut her hair off. Therefore she's wearing a wig in the short hair scenes - and an upturned collar hides the ponytail tucked into her jacket.
* Keira Knightley cut her hair short for ''{{Film/Domino}}'' and ''Film/BendItLikeBeckham''. Amusingly enough, both cases required her to wear extensions for the ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' movies she had to film immediately afterwards.
* Dan Stevens dyed his normally blond hair black for the film ''A Walk Among The Tombstones''.




to:

* Melissa Benoist is a natural brunette. She went partially blonde for ''{{Series/Supergirl2015}}''.
* ''Series/DowntonAbbey'':
** Michelle Dockery cut her hair into a bob for Season 5 when Lady Mary finally does so.
** Lily James is a natural brunette but was required to dye her hair blonde. She jokes that being blonde helped her get the part of [[{{Film/Cinderella2015}} Cinderella]]. She went back brunette for ''Film/PrideAndPrejudiceAndZombies''.
* Jennifer Ehle cut her hair short for the BBC version of ''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice'', to help it fit under the wig better. The wardrobe people said it actually made it more difficult, as little wisps of blonde hair kept escaping from under the wig - and it would have been easier to pin all the hair up if it had been long.

* Rob [=McElhenny=] (Mac) gained 50 lbs for the seventh season of ''It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,'' and lost most of the weight as the season progressed. He has explained that making his character get fat was part of the sitcom deconstruction that the show is aiming for.

** ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' had him shaving his head, going through long make-up process (complete with IcyBlueEyes lenses) and wearing a 75 pound armor which he described as "suffocating".
* One of the reasons Creator/RobertJohnBurke was cast to replace Creator/PeterWeller as Franchise/RoboCop in ''Film/RoboCop3'' was because Orion was starting to collapse and they wouldn't put up the cash for building whole new suits for Bruke to wear, so they modified the suits Weller wore in ''Film/RoboCop2'' for Burke to wear, which he said would be painful to wear for a short time.
* In ''Film/JurassicWorld'', Bryce Dallas Howard plays a character who [[CombatStilettos spends the entire movie on high heels]]. This includes trekking through a jungle and running from bloodthirsty dinosaurs. Howard [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqwU6SahymQ&feature=youtu.be "trained to run in heels like it was for the Olympics"]], with all the ankle-bursting difficulties this implies.

to:

* ''Film/{{Divergent}}'':
** For ''Divergent'', Creator/ShaileneWoodley had her dark brown hair lightened to blonde.
** In a rare case of another film affecting this one, Woodley had to cut her hair short for ''Film/TheFaultInOurStars'' and didn't have time to grow it again for ''The Divergent Series: Insurgent''. As Tris gets an ImportantHaircut in ''Insurgent'', she opted to cut her hair into a pixie rather than wear a wig to match the book (where the haircut is only to chin-length). By ''The Divergent Series: Allegiant'', the hair matches the books.

* Josh Hutcherson had to build quite a bit of muscle to play strong wrestler Peeta Mellark in ''Film/TheHungerGames'', though most of it ended up not showing on screen. For [[Film/TheHungerGamesMockingjayPart1 Mockingjay Part 1]] he did however not lose a ton of weight to portray the emanciated and tortured version of the character. Peeta's weight-loss was achieved through CGI.

* Creator/CharlizeTheron put on about thirty pounds, partially shaved and bleached her eyebrows, and had her actual hair thinned and damaged to play serial killer Aileen Wuornos in ''Monster''.
* Choi Min-Sik, as the protagonist Oh Dae-Su in ''Film/OldBoy'', gained and lost considerable amounts of weight (repeatedly) to simulate a man being held in captivity for 15 years. Oh Dae-Su also kept track of how many years he had been confined by literally tattooing tally marks onto his arm. Unable to pull off the special effects required to depict this, Choi actually applied some of the tattoos for real on camera...using a piece of hot wire.

* Creator/AnnaFaris is blonde, but dyed her hair black for the first two movies in the ''ScaryMovie'' franchise as a parody of Neve Campbell in the ''Franchise/{{Scream}}'' films. She gave up on it by the third, which is helped considering the main "inspiration" for that one, ''Film/TheRing'', also stars a blonde. She claims on [[ComedyCentral Canned Ham: Scary Movie]] that she told the casting people she was a natural brunette. No doubt she knew what happens to blondes in horror movies.

* Creator/ChrisHemsworth, to play Film/{{Thor}}, well... ''[[http://cache.gawkerassets.com/assets/images/8/2010/07/man-08046r.jpg DAMN.]]'' He gained so much muscle that he actually had to lose weight mere days before shooting because the Thor tights were cutting off circulation. After that, he lost weight to play James Hunt in ''Film/{{Rush|2013}}'' so he could fit in the cars. Then he had to gain it all back for ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''. Then, he had to lose weight to play an emaciated sailor in ''Film/InTheHeartOfTheSea''. Then he had to gain it all back again for ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''. He also grew out his hair for the Phase 2 films instead of wearing a wig.
