Nicole Kidman's last major role was Big Little Lies in which she played a stunningly beautiful wealthy mom in Monterey Bay, California. Now, you wouldn't even recognize her.

For her new action-adventure role in Destroyer, Kidman sports a fake tan; a wrinkled, gaunt face; and short, shaggy brown hair. She honestly looks like a completely different person. It's wild how hair and makeup can completely alter even the most famous, recognizable star's appearance.

In Destroyer, Kidman plays a police detective who chases down people from a former undercover assignment so she can make peace with them. It doesn't have a set release date yet, but it's expected to be out sometime next year.

Luckily, this new look isn't going to stick around since Big Little Lies just got confirmed for a second season, which will include Kidman as one of its stars. She's also probably going to be back to looking fly AF when she hits the Golden Globes red carpet for all the awards Big Little Lies is up for, including her own nomination for Best Actress in a Drama Series.

"The character Celeste is so precious to me and the recognition is deeply appreciated."
