Actors who needed to be digitally edited
Filmmakers today can bring just about anything realistically to life using state of the art digital effects. Whether it's exploding space stations or giant transforming robots, if you can imagine it — and spare a couple hundred million to fund it — the movie industry can put it up on the big screen. But even though it's great for bringing the most fantastical creations convincingly to theaters, this technology can also be used for decidedly more mundane purposes — like making an actor's body parts look bigger or erasing embarrassing tattoos so they don't appear in topless scenes. Between all the obviously spectacular computer-derived spectacle, the movie industry's top effects animators are often hard at work adding and subtracting elements that, although they may never be noticed by most filmgoers, can be just as important to the final product. Here's a look at some actors whose real-life features had to be digitally altered for the movies.
