Check out these Hollywood celebrities who studied crazy acts for their films

One criticism of actors playing different characters that anyone might have is that occasionally they don’t seem to know what they’re doing, which of course, is sort of hard to let go of since it does take away from the movie. But one must keep in mind that they are ACTORS, and it’s easy to assume that they won’t accomplish everything to the satisfaction of individuals who genuinely possess these skills unless they already possessed those skills prior to taking on the part or learned them after the role.
