5 Movie Costume And Makeup Mishaps That Were A Little Too Close For Comfort

Published

on

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. Artisans are people and people make mistakes. But for these five actors, their movie costumes and makeup nearly killed them. They’ll never forget these productions.

Johnny Depp In ‘Edward Scissorhands’

Johnny Depp was required to wear a full-body leather costume for his role as the title character in his famous 1990 movie Edward Scissorhands. 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.

Kate Winslet In ‘Titanic”

Titanic was once the highest-grossing movie of all time. Fans connected to the ill-fated lovers Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet). Unfortunately, filming wasn’t easy for Winslet, who was required to run down a narrow hallway as a wave of water crashed into her, knocking her into a locked gate. Winslet’s coat got caught in the gate, pulling her underwater. Luckily, she broke free just in time.

Jennifer Lawrence In ‘X-Men: First Class’

Jennifer Lawrence didn’t enjoy her extremely blue mutant makeup in her 2011 Marvel film, X-Men: First Class. According to the actress, the makeup temporarily damaged her skin, causing boils, rashes, and blisters that took a while to heal. Lawrence loves performing in the movies, but she could do without the heavy goo.

Boris Karloff In ‘Frankenstein’

Boris Karloff portrayed the famous Monster in the 1931 adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Karloff’s image is recognizable: the lumbering bolts in his neck and his ghastly pale skin. But this iconic makeup came at a dangerous price. Karloff’s makeup was lead-based–a severe danger to the actor’s health. During production, he was frequently exhausted and lost 25 pounds.

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.
