Hollywood isn’t always about looking great. Although most celebrities know how to clean up for the red carpet, it takes a whole lot more creativity and preparation to get ugly for a big movie role. Being able to commit a strict weight loss or taking on a dramatic make-under has landed these ten celebrities on list of the best ugly appearances:

1. Renée Zellweger

This Hollywood sexpot didn’t hesitate to pile on the pounds to play the title character in Bridget Jones’s Diary.

When she first landed the role, she was excited about the prospect of eating whatever she wanted.

After a few weeks of indulging she said that she started to fell unwell, but she stuck to the plan and followed through.

The result was a success and her portrayal of the adorably accident-prone Bridget Jones is well-loved.

She has now gone through the process twice for the filming of Bridget Jones Diary and Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. Gaining the weight was the easy part, but Renee also managed to slim down to her usual tiny frame almost immediately after filming. She loved getting back to her fitness routine but she said that it was exhausting trying to work off all the extra pounds.

Renee has become known her natural glow and polished style on the red carpet. She traded her put-together look for the Bridget Jones’s frumpy fashion and dishevelled hair styles. Her overall look brought the lovable character to life in both films. Zellweger turned Bridget Jones into an engaging personality who is both relatable and comical.

Although there are rumours in Hollywood of yet another installment, Zellweger has yet to confirm that she has been cast for a third sequel of the popular film franchise.
