If you’re going to be an actor, you have to play other people convincingly. But to truly be considered one of the greats, you’ve got to have a knack for vanishing into them completely. And that’s where makeup artists and hair stylists can really come in clutch.
The latest celebrity to essentially disappear before our very eyes is Aussie actress Nicole Kidman, who could not look less like herself in the new trailer for her movie Destroyer (unless, perhaps, she teleported to a dystopia, took a vat of dirt, and plunged herself into it. Then she’d look like she does below).
We’re warning you now, she’s tough to recognize.
In the trailer, Kidman leaves her refined Aussie lady look behind and becomes LAPD detective Erin Bell, who is decidedly less polished and more tortured than the actress IRL.

“I’ve spent my whole life scrambling, jealous, hungry, scared. I wanna find something decent, something good,” Kidman-as-Bell tells her daughter. “You can be better than me.”
Consider the countdown to the movie’s Dec. 25 release on.
