Do Fake Noses Lead to Oscar Love? Foxcatcher Star Steve Carell Puts His Knowledge To the Test

Steve Carell takes a dark turn in Foxcatcher, the gritty true story of the murder of Olympic wrestling champion Dave Schultz. Working alongside Mark Ruffalo and Channing Tatum, prosthetics and makeup helped the actors become their real life characters. Historically, those who transform themselves tend to receive lots of love come award season. So how well does Carell know other famous (fake) noses in film?

While Carell’s prosthetic nose helped him embody John du Pont, other actors have been on the wrong side of an on screen makeup transformation. Check out some of the more distracting movie makeovers, below.

  • Leonardo DiCaprio

  • John Travolta

  • Roddy McDowell and Co.

  • Martin Lawrence

  • John Hurt

  • Dustin Hoffman

  • Eddie Murphy

  • Jeff Goldblum

  • Marlon Brando

  • Tom Cruise

Foxcatcher is in theaters now.
