Cameron Diaz

Shiny and blonde.

Still super pretty, (obvs- it's Cameron D) but now channeling the whole dodgy 90's yearbook thing.

Charlize Theron

Cheekbones that dreams are made of.


Charlize Theron In Monster

And then BAM that's why we love her. Charlize rendered herself unrecognisable to portray serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster and totally picked up an Oscar for her performance.

The Baby In Twilight

Bella and Edward's offspring was weirdly CGI'ed. But...

The Original Twilight Baby They Were Going To Use

...It could have been a LOT, LOT WORSE. This mechanical baby was originally set to play Renesemee but was dropped because the cast found her too creepy. Seriously, watch this video - you'll understand why. We're just concerned about where the hell that mechanical baby is now. Haunting our dreams most probably.

Fit right?


Gael Garcia Bernal In Bad Education

And still weirdly tickled our fancy when he played a crossdresser in Pedro Almadovar's Bad Education.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwynnie of the long, lithe limbs and macrobiotic lifestyle.

Make-up free and gender confuzzled.

Nicole Kidman

Willowy and red-lipped.

To a knock-out representation of Viginia Woolf.

Egads! Prepare to be afraid, very very afraid. Marilyn Manson, him of the rock music, subject of dark urban legends and romancer of Hollywood's hottest alt ladies has appeared without his trademark make-up in a new episode of his favourite TV show, Eastbound & Down.

The show, which focuses on washed-up baseball player Kenny Powers, features Marylin as a geeky waiter clad in a (gasp!) polo shirt and shorts with a shaggy mousey-brown mophead. The effects are somewhat unsettling, so used are we to seeing Marylin painted white with a set of piercing blue contacts and black lips. Just take a peek at the video below to see him in all his clean-skinned glory.

However, he's not the only celebrity to make a dazzling transformation to appear on screen. Click through the gallery above to see our favourites.
