The best compliment that an actor can receive is that the audience didn't recognise him. Sometimes this sentiment may be expressed because the actor delivers a stunning performance, other times it happens because of his sheer physical transformation.

Some of the greatest performances you can think of are the ones where the actor pushed himself beyond recognition. Daniel Day-Lewis may go method, but Eddie Murphy put on the make-up.

Which very conveniently brings us to the other half of this stellar duo: The make-up artist. These guys are the real unsung heroes of the movie industry, developing an age-old craft for the era of HD.

All those times actors moaned about having to sit in the dreaded make-up chair for 8 hours, and then promptly forgot about it the second some awards attention was thrown their way.

So here is a quiz for the true movie buff. Not only do you have to guess the actor, you have to identify them through another movie they've starred in. Sounds simple enough? Then go ahead, make your day.
