In a world where fashion is often viewed as disposable, there are some celebrities who are setting an example by wearing their favorite outfits multiple times. They don’t care about public opinion and make their favorite clothes work for them instead of letting them collect dust in the closet.We gathered 9 celebrities who gave their favorite outfits a new life and looked amazing at big red-carpet events.
It is a celebrity’s job to attract attention, and they often do it with the help of stunning red carpet outfits. Sometimes, they go for gorgeous and stylish dresses, or on the contrary, choose something weird and extravagant. But occasionally, they decide to focus everyone’s attention on their shoes, and we’ve found instances where it was their unusual footwear that stole the show.
When we enjoy the outfits of stars on the red carpet, we have no idea how much effort went into creating them. The preparation for such important events can take several weeks or even months. Celebrities have entire teams of professionals, like stylists, hairdressers, makeup artists, and even seamstresses. And in order to make sure everything goes smoothly, celebrities and their assistants use all sorts of different tricks.
There are actors who are called typecast actors because they play the same type of character all the time. Katherine Heigl, Zooey Deschanel, or Michelle Rodriguez, for example, have experienced this problem firsthand. However, there are actresses who can play dozens of different characters, from villains to sweethearts, and be totally convincing in all of them. So, let’s find out who these actresses are.
The Harry Potter franchise is one of the most lucrative in the world. Deathly Hallows — Part 2 is among the 50 highest-grossing films of all time. In November 2022, it was revealed that HBO has plans to reboot the saga as a series. But creating movies is not an easy task. And to prove the point, we have collected the stories about the actors’ adventures when filming the movies. And in the bonus part, we’re going to tell you why the role of Hagrid was so important to Robbie Coltrane.
A study revealed that over 50% of Americans have had a crush on a co-worker. And actors aren’t exempt from catching feelings for someone they work with. They’ve spoken out about how it made them feel shy or awkward on set, or how they managed to laugh about it years later. Let’s dive into the stories of some unrequited celebrity crushes.
Science can name several reasons why pregnancy can strongly affect working women. However, these challenges were a piece of cake for the supermoms in Hollywood. Most of the iconic roles played by our favorite actresses were filmed while they were carrying their own bundle of joy, and we may not have even noticed.
Menopause is a time of change when it comes to a woman’s mood, hormones, brain, and body. It occurs 12 months after the last period, and usually starts when you reach your fifties. It can be overwhelming, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad thing.Celebrities, like Phyllis Logan, stay positive through it all and deal with the transition in a healthy fashion. Research shows that it’s also important to spend time with friends and participate in activities that you enjoy.
The number of women having their first child at an older age is growing. For example, in 2013, in European countries, it was 28.8 years old, and in 2018, it was 29. And the number one reason is the development of science. Not a long time ago, the world-famous model, Naomi Campbell, became a mom for the first time at the age of 50. She thanks scientific progress for such an opportunity.
When you think that it is too late to start something — either your age is wrong or you don’t have enough energy — it’s worth recalling one simple saying: “Better late than never.” It’s always amazing and charming when you find your style.
Most of us think celebrities are so unreachable and perfect that we even forget they’re humans like us. If we cross paths with them, we remember it for the rest of our lives. Who would’ve ever thought we would see them in a shopping mall or a café when, just recently, we watched them on the big screen or listened to their songs on the radio?
The Harry Potter series has captured the hearts of generations of children and adults alike. For one, the series is full of strong and exciting female characters that have inspired girls to be brave and to love themselves. And the behind-the-scenes facts about the cast show us the magic that goes into making our favorite movies, and the ways that things could have been different but ended up just right. We at Bright Side also love the Harry Potter franchise, so we’re sharing these facts about some of the cast members that might surprise you.
The Harry Potter saga became one of the most successful cinematic events in history. The world created by the writer J.K. Rowling managed to come to life on the big screen thanks to the hard work of dozens of people. They made sure to respect Rowling’s vision as much as possible. Especially when creating the costumes, that were key to highlighting the personality of each character and gave that magical touch to the world that has fascinated young and old.
Most celebrities have to do things to attract attention to themselves. One way to do this is to wear unusual items. In trying to look stylish and unique, they sometimes choose awesome outfits, but other times, they’re more crazy than anything else. And very often, it’s the details that make the entire look unforgettable, like the shoes.
The fans of Harry Potter books often complain that many important scenes weren’t in the films. But nobody talks about the scenes that weren’t in the book or the script. They appeared in the film thanks to the actors’ improvisation skills.
Playing cartoon characters must be a tough job, especially when it comes to characters that millions of people fell in love with when they were little kids. Luckily, there are talented actors and actresses who were born to bring fairytales to life. Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Helena Bonham Carter as Fairy Godmother, Emma Watson as Belle, and other celebs in this article helped us live through our favorite stories once again, and we can’t thank them enough.
In 2022, Harry Potter fans were jubilant because the documentary film Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts was released. Our favorite actors reunited to celebrate the first Harry Potter film. And viewers got an opportunity to travel back in time and learn some backstage secrets.
Some actors seem to play the same role in every movie. This happens to Katherine Heigl, Zooey Deschanel, and Michelle Rodriguez. And it’s hard to say why. Perhaps they are so good at their specific type of characters that moviemakers don’t want to try them out in anything else. However, there are actresses who can transform into dozens of different characters — desperate villains and real cuties.
People often have very opposite opinions about actors in book adaptations. Some don’t like it when the movie character looks different from the book description, and others, thanks to talented actors and actresses decide to read the book. Today, almost all popular novels have 2 or more movie adaptations, so we can compare several “versions” of the same character.
Not every woman is ready to sacrifice her beauty, even for a short while. And if this woman is an actress, it’s a sign of her professionalism. It’s not an easy task to hide your looks behind glasses and a thick layer of makeup, but some movie stars handle it admirably.
Many factors come into play when producers are casting actors for a big hit like Harry Potter. These choices are often so well-made that the viewer creates a powerful relationship with the character. This powerful relationship makes it hard to dissociate the image of the actor and their on-screen role. For instance, can you imagine a Harry Potter played by someone other than Daniel Radcliffe, or a Hermione not played by Emma Watson? Well, even though many of us think that these actors were “born” to play these roles, it is possible that on several occasions the producers did not agree at first and they may have even chosen someone else. It’s hard to believe, but true.
Costumes help make movie characters come alive and be more believable. Actors and actresses always look forward to the first time they put on a costume and take on their roles. But stars aren’t always comfortable wearing these getups. In this case, they’re forced to spend weeks, and even months, in tight, clunky clothes, spending hours in the dressing room.
Even though all movies are scripted, actors use all the tricks in the book to sell us on their on-screen love stories. What is the best way to make a scene as genuine as possible? Improvise, of course! It can be intimidating to take your co-star by surprise and lay an unexpected kiss on them, but in almost all cases, the reward justifies the risk.
The most known (and feared) villains are often played by actors that are so professional and smart when it comes to acting, that we forget that there’s a true person behind the evil face. Some of them, when they were younger, actually had a pretty sweet and harmless look. It shows just how talented they are, and also the radical change in their look that they had to undergo in order to play a part in a film.
Sometimes, a movie doesn’t have to win an Oscar for Best Costume Design to become memorable. Very often, the costumes of characters are planned really meticulously, but there are times when something really mysterious about their clothes appears accidentally.
In a world where women have always aspired to look a certain way, that is in accordance with Hollywood beauty standards, Helena has always ignored the rules and was solely guided by her own taste. Many people only know Helena Bonham Carter as the actress who constantly plays the roles of strange women. But there are many moments in her biography that are even more admirable than her roles in films. Once, for example, Helena’s merits were noted by the British Queen, Elizabeth II.
As a rule, the Oscar award for the best costume design goes to the artists who manage to accurately recreate a costume in accordance with its historical time period. But only one movie team gets a reward, while 5 teams are nominated. And everyone knows the movie that won the Oscar, but few people remember the nominees. However, these films are also worth spending a couple of evenings watching. The costumes in these movies are not only pleasant to look at, but they often hide a secret meaning.
The ability to completely transform into a character is a coveted skill for an actor. However, many famous actors have certain types of characters that they often portray. But sometimes, all they need is one out-of-the-ordinary role to push them out of their comfort zone.
The last Harry Potter movie was released back in 2011. After that, some of the stars of the magic franchise kind of paused their career. For example, we almost haven’t’ seen new movies with James and Oliver Phelps (the Weasley twins), Bonnie Wright (Ginny), and Stanislav Ianevski (Viktor Krum). Other “wizards” try themselves in unusual roles and show us the versatility of their talent.
