For one to play a radical role in a movie, the actor/actress must be ready to make drastic changes in whatever is needed for the role.
This ranges from physical to emotional and mental, even sometimes, spiritually.
In the case of Vincent D’onofrio, he has to gain an extra 35kg to his weight in order to be able to efficiently play the troubled Lawrence in Stanley Kubrick’s “Born to Kill” (1987).
It is of note that it took the actor seven long months to get the “ideal body” for the film and, likewise, it took another nine months to get back to his previous weight.
