How Leonardo DiCaprio Transformed Into J. Edgar Hoover

Posted by & filed under The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

It’s common for actors gain or lose weight for roles, but the tight filming schedule for “J. Edgar” didn’t give Leonardo DiCaprio enough time to bulk up; instead, a team of makeup artists helped the actor transform into the portly J. Edgar Hoover.

“I really wanted to take a break and do the whole real physical transformation,” he admitted to Access Hollywood. “Of course, the film wouldn’t allow it. It was a massive amount of weight to put on in a very short amount of time. So thankfully, I had a lot of people around to help me in that transformation and I think it turned out pretty well.”
