12 Actors Who Seemingly Mastered the Art of Shape-Shifting Both in Real Life and On-Screen

These actors have played characters we love, some for many years. We tend to think of them as their characters, but when we see them in their everyday life, they look completely different. They’re like chameleons and transform so much that they sometimes look unrecognizable.

Bright Side has gathered pictures of these celebs, and we are in shock by the variety of looks they pull off.

Lady Gaga is known for her fashion and artistry. She isn’t shy about experimenting with her looks. She once said, “My fashion is my most prized possession for 2 reasons: 1) Because it is a visualization of all the hard work I’ve put in to get where I am today; 2) Because it is a legend in the encyclopedia of my life.” She changes her stage and performing style a lot and looks very different in her various looks.

Who are your favorite shape-shifting actors? Can you think of any other celebs who look completely different in real life?
