FTA: "When Day-Lewis dresses up as a ghost for Halloween he has a doctor medically stop his heart first just to see what it's like to be dead. Day-Lewis once played "peek-a-boo" with his kid and had to be hospitalized for pouring a quart of bleach in his eyes to simulate the effect of not seeing."

This seems like the makings for a great new meme.

Also, no Jackie Chan? Really?

No Raging Bull?

What kind of loser puts a list like this together and doesn't even know about DeNiro?

People get hurt at work, film at 11.

FTA (Snow White and the Huntsman): Anyway - Charlize Theron actually dedicated herself enough to the role of whatever she played to tear a stomach muscle from projecting her voice i.e. screaming a shiat ton. She gave it her all for this role apparently, I think, I don't actually remember. But seriously, how do you tear a muscle with your voice?

I can definitely see how she could have done that, given the absurd, ridiculous, almost unintentionally comedic performance she delivered in that film.

"YOU WILL DO THIS FOR ME HUNTSMAN!"

That movie sucked, sooooo bad.

Nothing about McConaheywhersmashirt or Christian Bale starving themselves?

No Christian Bale for The Machinist?

Damn, that movie came out 9 years ago and still disturbs me thinking about it.
 
2013-05-03 09:12:38 AM  
No viggo from lotr? Give it Theron though, she didn't phone it in for that role. And I thought that Leo scene was the best one in the movie, it was just so authentic I remember thinking "that had to be real" in the theater

Author explicitly excludes him as transcending the list.

Fun fact: The singing in the rain scene used milk to make the rain show up better on film.

Yup.  And in Dawn of the Dead, when Sarah Polly was patching up Ving Rhames, she went too deep and sewed through the prosthetic and into his arm - he didn't say a thing.

I've yet to see the movie (though been meaning to watch it forever now), what I find equally amazing is after that role, he went the other way and weighed 220 lbs for his next role Batman Begins.

Listening to Kevin Smith talking about jason Mewes' drug problems, he said Bale nailed a junkie's behavior in The Fighter too

This list stinks of someone that's seen a couple of big-name classics and a bunch of recent schlock. Probably barely into his twenties (i.e. knows not a hole in the ground from his own ass)

I thought that character was goofy as hell, then they had the interview with the real guy after the movie...then I realized that bale played the man perfectly.
 
2013-05-03 09:32:51 AM  
I can't believe Bale isn't on this list. The Machinist was so messed up seeing him that way.  Jesus, what actor would do that for a role?

That is a cool list, some of those swings are amazing.  Just goes to show you with enough free time and money you can loose crazy amounts of weight quickly.

Also, how could they pick that pathetic example for Charlize Theron and not mention her transformation for Monster?

She looks so drastically different, I'm not sure if I found a picture of Charlize, or if that's actually Aileen Wuronos.

Video of that event.  He was also preparing to play Mel Brooks at the time.

How many bones do you need to break to get on this list?!

While researching a role for an upcoming film about the Boston Marathon bombings, Day-Lewis had arranged to have his legs amputated just below the knee.  He later decided that it wasn't true enough, so he created his own pressure cooker bomb and set it off at the Dublin Marathon, mangling his own limbs, as well as killing and maiming those around him.  His screen-test was a spot-on, stunningly accurate recreation of 'Picture 8.'

Toshiro Mifune laughs at your puny badasses. Except for Bale and Lewis. They can stay.

That "writer" needs to sacrifice for his art and see what it's like for current-day Mark Twain.  He needs to bury himself in the ground for a few years to really get into it.  No food or water either.  It needs to be authentic.

/Your blog sucks
//Hard!!!
 
2013-05-03 11:30:31 AM  
So being a dumb-ass on set and injuring yourself makes you badass?
 
2013-05-03 11:43:24 AM  
if being a dumbass at work and getting hurt is the criteria then I should be on this list.

Or his subsequent cycles of Vitamin S.

Nthing the Machinist.
 
2013-05-03 12:42:55 PM  
Bale in The Machinist, definitely. As far as literally sacrificing your body to make a movie, that entire list could have been Jackie Chan. Dude damn near killed himself many, many times. Those out takes during the skyscraper fight scene in Who Am I? (At least I think that's the one) make me shudder every single time. Just...wow.
 
2013-05-03 12:47:26 PM  
List fails without Jackie Chan for ... well pretty much any of his movies.

swaxhog: No Christian Bale for The Machinist?

Came here to say this.

Glad i was beaten to the punch. This list is complete fail. People don't realize The Machinist came AFTER Batman Begins. He was all bulked up for Batman, then lost more weight than anyone should have ever let him over an INSANELY short period of time for that flick. The man is dedicated.
 
2013-05-03 01:06:36 PM  
Also: Brandon Lee.
 
2013-05-03 01:22:37 PM  
List fails without Manos, The Hands of Fate. It's the first and only role of John Reynolds. The satyr "costume", which involved a wire armature for his legs to force an unnatural gait, destroys his knees. He becomes addicted to painkillers and, in despair, he kills himself.
 
2013-05-03 01:45:05 PM  
Can we make a rule in this thread where you're not allowed to reference someone not on the list without describing WHY you think they should be mentioned?

Marcus Aurelius: No Raging Bull?

What kind of loser puts a list like this together and doesn't even know about DeNiro?


Case in point, I don't know why DeNiro should be mentioned.  I am not privy to your insider knowledge.
 
2013-05-03 01:45:56 PM  
What about Dennis Quaid in Wyatt Earp?

Lol. Kinda hard to argue that one.
 
2013-05-03 01:59:25 PM

Insider knowledge? Raging Bull is considered one of the best films ever made, was nominated for 8 Oscars (and won 2, including Best Actor for DeNiro). It's not exactly an obscure little arthouse film.

/tl;dr version: DeNiro worked out like a fiend to portray a middleweight boxer, then gained 60 pounds in 4 months to play him as a middle-aged fat has-been.

Just watched Showdown in Little Tokyo last night.  A little dated but Tia made up for it.

No scratched cornea from Clockwork Orange?
 
2013-05-03 03:44:17 PM  
If the first six aren't Jackie Chan it's a bullshiat list.
