Actors are used to wearing elaborate costumes and makeup designs. It’s a part of the job, but sometimes, these costumes and makeups could lead to disasters.

This might not sound bad, but leather is warm and toasty. In one scene, Depp was required to run in his costume. Instead, the actor fainted from the heat, endangering his health.

Buddy Ebsen Couldn’t Handle The Makeup In ‘The Wizard Of Oz’

Iconic actor Buddy Ebsen landed the first gig as the Tinman in the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz. He was the obvious choice for the role, but unfortunately, movie makeup wasn’t as safe in the 1930s. The Tinman’s silver-colored makeup was aluminum-based. Ebsen developed a severe reaction and was hospitalized. He nearly died and was replaced by Jack Haley, who could handle the makeup.
