There's been a fair few good looking bad guys in Hollywood over the years, but traditionally, the antagonist is ugly as sin. They can make their villains as aesthetically unpleasing or as downright frightening as they choose, and some of them have really pushed the boat out in recent years. But what about the actors beneath the makeup and prosthetics? The following movie villains might be designed to disgust, but they're all gorgeous in real life.
The 6'3” actress and model rose to fame playing Brienne of Tarth on Game of Thrones, flying the flag for taller women. "Occasionally I get messages from women saying that I've brought them some joy, and that's unbelievably thrilling," Christie told the news reporters.
The Red Queen, which fell right into Bonham Carter's comfort zone said "I loved playing her originally because of her look," she told Den of Geek during the promotion of 2016's Alice Through the Looking Glass. "I always like camouflaging myself, basically. She's just such a strong character. It's always liberating to play someone who has basically stopped growing up. She was just brilliantly written. It was a gift."
Theron portrayed Wuornos in 2003's Monster (directed by future Wonder Woman helmer Patty Jenkins), giving a performance that the Academy deemed worthy of a Best Actress statuette. She thanked a lot of people in her acceptance speech, but perhaps chief among them was the film's talented makeup artist, Toni G. "She's got this beautiful face, but she's a very brave woman, because you've got to have the weight in order for the jowls to look right," Toni G said to reporters.
Standing at a whopping 6'10”, Prince was the perfect build to play a hideous predator, though in real life he's not only good-looking, he's apparently a great guy, too. "Olivia Munn said to me, 'There's no way you can play the Predator, you're too nice,'" the athletic actor recalled.
