The future Sexiest Man Alive was trying to work the ladies back in 2005's 'Just Friends' with those silicone jowels. Unsurprisingly, that jawline fared much better in Ryan's rise to fame, sans quadruple chins.
Alyssa spoofed herself and showed off some big dance moves in the comedy, "Date Night".
Julia said that her main problem when playing a larger lady for "America's Sweethearts" was that "It's hard to find a good support bra when you're that big."
The musical actor donned a fat suit (and wig and dress and heels) for his all-singing, all-dancing role of Edna Turnblad, the admonishing mum of Tracy, in 2007's "Hairspray".

A bit of a cult hit, Tom Cruise's weighty role in the action-farce Tropic Thunder raised a few eyebrows from audience goers normally used to seeing a chisel-faced leading man on their big screen. Cruise's movie transformations have continued with another almost unrecognisable stint in musical film "Rock of Ages".
Neil Patrick Harris

In 'Shallow Hal' Gwyneth taught us that inner beauty is what counts. But she also said this: ""It was very strange the first time I put it on. I laughed and I cried. It was very intense. I went into public with it on, down in the lobby of the hotel where I tried it on, and people wouldn't even look at me, wouldn't make eye contact with me at all. I felt no sexual energy from men [on the set]."
The former golden girl 'suited up' for 2008's stinker of a film, "Homeland Security."
She definitely lost weight for her gruelling role in "Black Swan", but putting on the pounds was a lot easier. Especially when all petite little Mila had to do was slip into a silicone suit for an episode of "That 70's Show!"
The supermodel made her groudbreaking foray into investigative journalism, going undercover as a morbidly obese woman for 15 hours, and reporting her experiences to the world: "There's no excuse for rudeness. There's no excuse for ugliness. And there's no excuse for nastiness and that's what I experienced."
Vanessa Minnillo This beautiful lady went undercover in a fat suit on the streets of NYC for "Entertainmen Tonight", and described her experience as really uncomfortable. "It’s almost like an accepted form of discrimination because [people] can laugh at me, and that hurts,” she said.

Eddie Murphy may as well permanently sew himself into a fat suit. From the Nutty Professor to Norbit, if you rent an Eddie Murphy movie, expect a line for "Fat Suit Artist" in the credits.
Another crossdressing performance that requires the silicone suit, the 'Big Momma's House' films, in the sense of Hollywood acting and films as being considered 'art', are dead weight.
Mike Myers The comedic actor paraded around in enormous man-boobs in this foam-latex suit for "Austin Powers: The Spy who shagged me", and said of his experience wearing the suit: "After a couple of days of sweating in it — and I sweated a lot — I smelled like an 800-pound sewage filter system."
