When it comes to movies, nothing is impossible. Women transform into aliens, fashion models play music stars, men become beasts, and really attractive actors and actresses turn into the creepiest creatures on the silver screen. We often can’t look past the outer layer of horrifying makeup mixed with some serious CGI and other special effects, but the more interesting it is to look back on some of the most iconic horror movie roles and figure out who was hiding beneath all those sharp teeth, unsettling smiles, and piles of dirt. Here are 10 creepy actors and actresses who are actually pretty attractive in real life.
Bill Skarsgard, It
The new rendition of It is killing it in the box office, while Bill Skarsgard is killing the rest of the world with his handsome looks. It’s almost impossible to recognize him under those layers of freakish makeup and that devilish clown smile, but there’s no denying the fact – that’s one of the hottest ‘creepy actors’ we’ve ever seen! Quick fact: Bill Skarsgard has developed this disturbing smile of his when he was just a little boy, so he used it to run around scaring people, including his younger brother, Valter.
Daveigh Chase, The Ring
The analog age of video tapes is long gone, so a ghost story about a cursed videotape doesn’t sound as scary today as it was back in 2002. Nevertheless, Samara Morgan from The Ring is one of the most iconic horror characters of all time, rocking long black hair and a dirty white robe that’s became an inspiration for numerous Halloween looks all over the world. Daveigh, on the other hand, is a pretty young woman that looks nothing like the monster she once portrayed on screen.
Naomi Grossman, American Horror Story
Who could have thought that Pepper from AHS: Asylum and AHS: Freak Show is an incredibly attractive woman in real life? American Horror Story is famous for its freaky characters, with gorgeous and handsome people playing some borderline disturbing roles, but Naomi Grossman had to go even further and change her whole appearance for the role in the show. Despite her disturbing looks, Pepper is one of the least dangerous characters on the show and is quite harmless, compared to the others.
Delphine Chanéac, Splice
Splice is one of those underrated sci-fi movies that haven’t hit the box office hard, but still deserves a few mentions when it comes to humans, cloning, and alien life forms. Dren, played by Delphine Chaneac, is a part human, part animal creature that has developed some kind of conscience, therefore, deserves a better treatment than it got in the movie. The creature itself is more disturbing than beautiful, which we can’t say about gorgeous Delphine Chaneac. This woman is pure beauty!
