Found on themakeupgallery.com was a few images on just how makeup artists were able to turn the beautiful Charlize Theron into the Monster, Aileen Wuornos, for her upcoming feature film Monster.
Click here to check out the images from the site:
“One of the first known female serial killers, Aileen Wuornos was convicted of murdering six men and was executed by lethal injection at a Florida State Prison on October 9, 2002. She initially claimed the killings were in self-defense after she was assaulted by customers, but later admitted she had intended to rob and kill the men.
In Monster the beautiful Charlize Theron agreed to a remarkable transformation to portray Wuornos. She gained weight and wore her hair long and greasy: the makeup design also required her eyebrows to be plucked out, dark contact lenses, crooked yellow teeth and a ruined-look to her complexion. Toni G, key makeup artist, created her look and Art Sakamoto made her bad teeth.
Toni G was quoted in an interview:
She’s got this beautiful face, but sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a very brave woman, because youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got to have the weight in order for the jowls to look right … And she let me mutilate her eyebrows, which changes the whole look of her eyes. It’s an hour-long process just to get the skin discolorations and all. You could never do something like that with an actress who isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t totally willing to go for it.”
