Actors are total chameleons when it comes to their on-screen characters, whether it’s getting buff and tough for a superhero movie or lose weight, they show that they are fully committed at all times.

Between shoots, some of them give up and try to make the most of life, just like us. The most intimidating character actors play on-screen can also become the cutest person in a matter of months.

We know that it’s totally normal for our bodies to undergo changes and we fully embrace them – check out how some of our favorite actors chose to do the exact same thing and became a cuter version of themselves.

Hugh Jackman posted the photo to the right on Twitter with the caption “When people say ‘you don’t look like 50’, a part of you believes that … until you find yourself sleeping.” Hugh shows us once again that we should never take ourselves too seriously and never forget to have fun along the way.

Which celebrity has gone through the biggest transformation? Do you prefer them as tough guys or do you prefer the cute version?
