It’s always fun to see celebrity transformations, especially when they changed into a better person. For most celebrities, it’s pretty normal to see them change their look for a specific show or movie. Yet, there are those dramatic transformations, you’d definitely say: “Wow! That’s incredible!”
We’ve listed some of the most amazing transformations of celebrity men for the past years. See below.
We were all “Wowed” how Steve Rogers changed into Captain America. Although Chris Evans wasn’t as thin as Steve Rogers before, he definitely wasn’t hero-like. He started with roles like the popular jock Jake Wyler in Not Another Teen Movie. He used to wear baggy pants and sweaters. Yet, when he took on the role of the Marvel hero, he let his facial hair grow and now favored more fitted shirts to show off his muscles.
In 2017, he opened up about feeling conscious with how he looks, especially his fear of going bald. “The fear is this [role as Captain America] can span 10 years so I can be doing this character until I’m 40. I’m supposed to be like this superior human. He can’t be balding… how horrible would it be if this superior man has male pattern baldness.”
Then chubby actor Jonah Hill became a household name after his role as Seth in Superbad back in 2007. After consulting a nutritionist and trainer, he ramped up his fitness game and started losing weight. In 2017, he debuted his lean and athletic figure, showing some real solid muscles. He now has a more defined upper body and arms.
The 33-year-old actor can often be seen holding a healthy smoothie after hitting the gym. Of course, he cut out one simple thing from his diet. He said, “I went to a nutritionist and I said, ‘I’ll lose weight, I’ll eat healthier and whatever, but figure out how I can drink beer’.
“It’s so annoying because when I don’t drink beer, I get really really thin. Then when I drink beer, I get a little bigger.”
After a photo of James McAvoy in 2017 circulated on the internet, a lot of people were shocked at how he managed to get in good shape from being thin in 2006. Some people had even taken his 6,000 calorie diet out of context. In reality, he did eat a lot of food but was not tracking how much calories he’s taking in.
His training and diet were all done for his role in M. Night Shyamalan’s Split and Glass.
The British actor has had notable roles in films like Star Trek: Nemesis and Bronson. He was also known for his long hair. In 2011, he jacked up for his role in the film Warrior where he also needed to shave his head. April this year, he needed to shave his head again to play Al Capone in Fonzo.
Perhaps, one of his major transformations all throughout his career is when he played Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. In that film, he became one of the most physically dominating villains. He had to do four sessions of training and add over 30 pounds of mass and muscle.
In an interview, he revealed the struggle he had to go through. “I think you pay the price with any drastic physical changes. It was alright when I was younger… but I think as you get into your 40s you have to be more mindful of the rapid training, packing on a lot of weight and getting physical, and then not having enough time to keep training because you’re busy filming, so your body is swimming in two different directions at the same time… I haven’t damaged my body, but I’m certainly a bit achier than I used to be! I certainly have joints that click that probably shouldn’t click, you know what I mean? And carrying my children is a little bit harder than it used to be—but don’t tell them!”
He used to be this chubby goofy Andy Dwyer in the TV series Parks and Recreation. Yet, in the movie Guardians of the Galaxy, he amazed everyone when he appeared 60 pounds lighter than he was. He lost that weight in just 6 months by doing three or four hours of consistent workout. His hard training work included running, swimming, boxing, and even a triathlon.
Although he purposely gained weight for his character Parks and Recreation, he is now committed to staying in shape. He said, “It gave me a sense of absolute control.”
