So you think it's easy being an actor? Wait until you read about the things these movie stars had to go through to be perfect for their roles. From hours and hours of make overs to getting piercings, these celebs have done a lot to prove they are worthy for their spot in the movie.

1. Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique for X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past. For her role as the blue mutant, Jen had to endure 7 hours of almost being naked on set while she was being airbrushed with the color blue. She also had to lose a few pounds for the role, so she can look fit and toned for the cameras.

2. Nicholas Hoult as Beast for X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Days of Future Past. It was the same for Jen's co-star Nicholas. He also had to go through the same painful transformation for his character. A head dress was placed on him before the makeup process begins to make another blue mutant out of him.

3. Anne Hathaway as Fantine for Les Miserables. Anne hasn't really spoken about the specifics of her Fantine diet, the diet she had to go through to portray the poverty-stricken prostitute in the movie. To lose 25 pounds for the character, the star had to only eat 2 thin squares of dried oatmeal paste every day according to reports!

4. Elizabeth Banks as Effie Trinket for The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. To play the bubbly and over-the-top publicist of Katniss and Peeta, Elizabeth had to go through several hours of hair and makeup make overs. But it's all worth it, don't you think, because she's now the face of Capitol Couture, the fashion and style of the Capitol.

5. Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Most of you probably remember Rooney as the quick-witted and sweet ex-girlfriend of Jesse Eisenberg's Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network. Yup, that's her. Rooney completely transformed herself for this movie by losing weight, cutting her hair, bleaching her eyebrows, getting piercings, and learning how to smoke. Phew!

A Simple Learner Who's a Great Pretender

Maybe I'm just a learner, not a weirdo. A learner that knows how to listen and pretend. A simple learner who's a great pretender. Pretending to be slightly dumb enough not to be judged and criticized by those who do not appreciate my existence. We surround ourselves with people who's levels are either beyond or below our intellectual behavior, because as for reality, people may use you either for their success or your downfall. Since then, people tend to judge someone who has an intellect with things they shouldn't be. Making them a criticizer, and most of all, calling them weird.

Honestly, I'm one of this "weirdo" who actually loves to learn things, and for the record, I'm bullied and stressed out for making myself not to learn more and go with the flow to dumbness I had. Have you ever feel being assigned to some task where you know every process to make it easier and faster to finish but turns out to hesitate to voice out because some of your mates put themselves in charge. There are times where I know what to do, what to say, or how to react, but kept myself silent and pretend not to know anything that may help us. Maybe it's a good thing to just go with their ideas and learn from their perspectives, but sometimes you can't control it and says something, and once again called to be a weirdo and let you finish the work by yourself.

It's annoying that you only know one process yet they gave you the whole work and let you finish it by yourself because they insist that "MAGALING KA DIBA?". It's not your fault being an intellectual person, knowing such things that may help you to pursue your dreams, and have the basic knowledge about something. You don't need to know everything, just the basics. And as for those people who do not appreciate your existence, let them be and continue what's the best for you. In some cases, you'll be annoyed by this but most of the time you'll be thankful for it. Not for now but maybe later. Just be yourself either a weirdo, a great pretender, or a simple learner, and always remember to lower your voice and behavior because no one loves that.

Just be a great pretender not to hear any runts and be a good learner that appreciates everything. It's out of nowhere thoughts of mine, but simply I leave you this my favorite life quotation; "Don't introduce yourself, Let your success introduce you"
