For every minute of the film — and not very successful — is the work of a huge team! Directors, cameramen, script writers, makeup artists, set designers, sound engineers... This is only a small part of the crew, and they all tried to make you, the audience, have something to watch in the evening with chips or popcorn.
But most of all labor to create films, of course, put the actors. To look at the screen most likely, they literally have to live a life of character, to feel what he feels, so that the audience believed him. Sometimes the roles are more or less simple, and at times — quite the contrary...
The story of the creation of the character of Boyd Swan from the movie "Fury" is a perfect example of what sometimes you have to go to the actors to achieve authenticity. Before you play a young American tanker involved in the occupation of Germany in 1945, actor Shia LaBeouf has deleted healthy front teeth, not washed for a few months, made a knife cuts on the face and even abandoned Judaism, adopting Christianity!

Role in the film "Alive", in the words of Leonardo DiCaprio, has become one of the most difficult in his career. First, it was necessary to act in the 25-degree and sometimes 40 degrees below zero. Second, the actor is an avid vegetarian — had to eat raw bison liver! DiCaprio jokes that during the filming really learned how to survive and now can even build a fire in the wild. Not surprisingly, the "Survivors" Leo brought his first Academy award.
We can say that the role of the Polish-Jewish musician władysław szpilman in "the Pianist," has brought Adrien Brody worldwide fame. Of course, the actor has appeared in the movie, but his character memorable to the audience. And all because a man has put a lot of effort possible to get into the character. In preparation for the filming of Brody lost 13 pounds, learned to perform on piano works by frédéric Chopin and even got rid of all his possessions, to better understand the sense of loss.
To play businessman Oh Dae-su in the film "Oldboy", the South Korean actor Choi Min As I had to lose about 10 pounds and a few months intensely in the gym to achieve the desired shape. Most of the stunts in the film the man acted alone. But perhaps the most difficult moment was the scene with eating live squid...
Yes, in Korea do eat live squid, but usually they are pre-cut into slices and seasoned gravy. Oh Dae-su has also had the clam entirely and do it four times! It's the number of takes it took to get a good shot.
Director Stanley Kubrick tried to do everything to the actors of the movie "the Shining" during the filming was in the right mental state — nervous, anxious and very stressed. To this end, he constantly touched performers of the main roles, found fault with every little thing and once almost brought Shelley Duvall (Wendy Torrence) to a nervous breakdown. The actress still remembers shooting in this film as the most challenging experience in your life. She admits that while "nearly went crazy."
A similar story happened with actress Janet Leigh when she played in the legendary Alfred Hitchcock film "Psycho." Shower scene, where she allegedly killing the mother of Norman Bates, has been tough on her. After proven stress and nervous tension, Janet Leigh was traumatized and could not take home tub. The woman admitted that he felt useless fear several times, checked the locks, looked in the window, turned around, and the remaining one, all the time watched the door.

The actress held at the choreographic machine first 2-3 hours daily, and then all eight hours. The already slender Portman village on a very strict diet and almost brought himself to anorexia. Fortunately, the works of the girls appreciated — she received the Oscar as best actress of the year.
Prior to her role in the movie Les Miserables Anne Hathaway played mostly beauties, so get used to the image of the obscenely skinny bald prostitute girl in principle, it was difficult. To achieve credibility on the screen, the actress actually cut the hair, went on a diet 500 calories a day, losing weight in 20 days to 6.5 pounds. But the real trouble started then! According to Hathaway, she literally cried my whole heart for filming. After the project, the actress felt empty and broken, and yet has not been able to return to normal life.
