85th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals

Part of being a successful actor is being able to make viewers believe that you are exactly who you say you are. As a result, the best actors are those who are able to completely submerge themselves in their roles.  While all actors have different methods of getting into character, some are willing to do almost anything to become the characters they portray on-screen.  Whether it be losing or gaining weight, living in insulation, or sacrificing personal hygiene, some will stop at nothing.  In the industry, this technique is often referred to as method acting, but to those outside of the industry, it is just plain crazy.  Here are 10 actors who went to extremes for movie roles.
