Angelina Jolie won an Oscar for her portrayal of sociopath Lisa in Girl Interrupted. Jolie ditched the face paint to play a strung-out psycho and laughed all the way to the Oscar stage.
Charlize Theron got all chubby and ugh-lee (to the point of being unrecognizable) for her role in Monster. When you're as stunning as Theron, it takes a lot of guts to step in front of the camera without any makeup on. The risk was worth it — Theron's courage helped her score an Oscar.
Usually, Hilary Swank's facial features make the rest of the female population want to walk around with a bag over our heads. In Boys Don't Cry, not only did Swank go bare-faced, she cut off all her hair and altered her body to look like a man. Swank did cry a lot in the movie, but she smiled from ear to ear when she won her Oscar.
On the red carpet, Nicole Kidman is flawless. The opposite was true when she played Virginia Woolf in The Hours. Mrs. Urban looked downright dreadful, but she won an Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role.
Rachel called and she wants her hair, makeup and impeccable wardrobe from the Gap back, please. This is not your older sister's Aniston. She is plain-faced and greasy-haired in her new movie Cake, and already she is creating a lot of Oscar buzz. We'll have to wait and see if Aniston gets to join this list for good.
Aniston's makeup-free Cake look is generating Oscar excitement, but Reese Witherspoon may give her a run for her money. Don't look now, but the impossibly cute and perky Witherspoon is rocking a naked face in her new movie Wild. So, Reese, are you ready to win another Oscar?
