    We've all had tough days at the office. But some actors, dedicated to giving it their all, took their work a few steps too far. Though these critically-acclaimed, often award-winning performances are a delight to watch, the experience of preparing for and recovering from these roles did a number on the actors involved, and left a lasting impression — not always for the positive. Here are several actors who went the extra mile for their craft…

    Isabelle Adjani - Possession | 0:21
    Adrien Brody - The Pianist | 0:50
    Colin Firth - The King's Speech | 1:39
    Hugh Laurie - House | 2:36
    Bob Hoskins - Who Framed Roger Rabbit | 3:33
    Heath Ledger - The Dark Knight | 4:12
    Charlie Hunnam - American TV & Movies | 4:58
    Janet Leigh – Psycho | 6:03

    I must dislike - if some role changed actor's life that would be Anthony Perkins in Psicho that is why she didn't feel comfortable after filming with him.

    What about Daniel Day Lewis? Possibly the best actor ever! He IS the personality he portrays in movies. I have never doubted he was a quadriplegic in “My Left Foot,” nor his Native American portrayal in “Last of the Mohicans,” or “There Will Be Blood.” He’s an amazing actor and I understand he never left character no matter what the role
