While some actors seamlessly transition from their on-camera roles to their real lives, many look totally different from the characters that made them famous. Suddenly you're looking at a whole new person — take Daenerys Targaryen vs. Emilia Clarke for example, or Betty Suarez vs. America Ferrera. While her Game of Thrones character had waist-length blonde curls, Emilia Clarke typically wears her hair in a rich chocolate brown shade, and opts for glam red lipstick over bronze makeup.
Insider rounds up the actors who have undergone extreme workouts and diets to transform themselves for Oscar-nominated roles.
It's been over 20 years since the release of the Selena movie starring Jennifer Lopez, Now, the life of Selena Quintanilla is getting the TV show treatment. With part 2 of Selena: The Series premiering on Netflix May 4, it tells the story of Selena’s rise to fame from a little girl with a big voice in Texas to a hugely popular, Grammy-winning singer of Tejano music. The Netflix series is a family drama, featuring her parents, Abraham and Marcella Quintanilla, and her siblings and bandmates, A.B. and Suzette.
The resemblance is uncanny. Twenty-five years after her death, fans of Selena Quintanilla are getting a closer look at the Tex-Mex singer's life in Netflix's Selena: The Series. Similar to the 1997 biopic Selena, the “coming of age story” depicted in the new series follows the icon’s rise to stardom from the early years of her career to her murder in March 1995.

Rebecca Hall deserved better when she was cast as Maya Jensen, a Tony Stark one-night-stand whose scientific prowess helped give way to Extremis and Aldrich Killian’s plan to arm super-soldiers to take over the U.S. Not only is her presence in the movie an unnecessary hurtle for Iron Man to cross, but she makes matters worse most of the time.
