Colin Farrell is the iconic villain in the movie, 'The Batman' opposite Robert Pattinson. He plays the Penguin, a character previously portrayed by Danny DeVito. Farrell made an appearance on 'The Kelly Clarkson Show' to discuss the movie and she was completely blown away when she saw a photo of the 45-year-old actor in full costume. "Wait, WHAT?" she exclaimed, "I didn't see that picture, oh my god. I just heard that you were Penguin. What the hell?" She also congratulated the makeup artist on their incredible work, declaring, "That person deserves to win awards." 

Clarkson's not wrong! Farrell is truly unrecognizable with full facial prosthetics, slicked-back hair with a receding hairline, and a body that's more or less shaped like a large penguin. He revealed that the full transformation took four hours at the start, but the team eventually managed to bring that down to two...

Jessica Chastain is taking on the role of the famous televangelist Tammy Faye in the biopic, 'The Eyes of Tammy Faye.' Faye was famous for the incredibly heavy makeup she wore at all times. Chastain, who rarely wears heavy makeup and takes good care of her skin, says thinks she has done permanent damage to her face with this role: "it's heavy. And when you're wearing it all day every day -- the weight of it on your body, it stretches your skin out." Chastain also expressed how difficult it was to act with so much makeup on her face, as it completely changed her ability to make facial expressions!
