Behind the Movie Masks and Make-up

Apologies for not knowing who first compiled this extremely elaborate picture collection, but I first saw it on reddit, and figure you all would enjoy it.

Often we don’t appreciate enough the transformations in film created by make-up artists and costume designers. And sometimes we don’t even know who is underneath all that make-up, metal or plastic. This gallery shows some of the most famous icons in cinema, and their real-world alter egos. Some are obvious, but I wager some you’ve never seen before. Who knew Darth Vader was such a hunk?
