Crazy Talents: 10 actors who played flawlessly flawlessly

Reliably playing madness is a sign of genuine acting talent, which is why actors for the role of heroes with mental disabilities win the Oscars and other film awards.

We represent 10 actors who played excellently in the movies of people whom we used to call madmen.

Christian Bale – American Psycho
In 2000, Christian Bale was not yet asked through each film to gain or lose weight again, and the actor demonstrated his talent in other ways. For example, in the dramatic thriller American Psycho, he played a representative of high society, who walks around secular parties in an expensive costume during the day and transforms into a maniac at night, who keeps the whole city in fear.

Angelina Jolie – “Interrupted Life”
Despite the fact that Winona Ryder had the main role in “Interrupted Life”, it was Jolie’s game that was remembered by the audience much more. For the role of a patient in a psychiatric hospital, the actress received her only Oscar so far.

The biographical drama of Ron Howard was based on real events from the life of the brilliant mathematician John Nash, suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. Although the film was criticized for some inaccuracy in the facts transferred to the screen, the film really liked the audience and critics, won four Oscars and became one of the best in Russell Crowe’s career.

A cult American thriller of the 90s, the plot of which is based on a writer who finds himself in a very difficult situation. On the one hand, he was saved by a woman who, fortunately, was an avid fan of his work. On the other – this woman was not so harmless.

For her role in Misery, Katie Bates received an Oscar as Best Actress.

Leonardo DiCaprio – Island of the Damned
The mesmerizing thriller of Martin Scorsese, in which his favorite Leonardo DiCaprio played a detective investigating the disappearance of a woman in a mental hospital. Only at the end of the picture will the true essence of the main character be revealed, whose mind played a cruel joke with him.

Jennifer Jason Lee – The Lone White Woman
Jennifer Jason Lee is characterized by the roles of women whose personalities deviate from the norm. In this dramatic thriller of the 90s, her heroine makes friends with a woman by declaration, gradually turning into herself.

Anthony Hopkins – Silence of the Lambs
Hannibal Lecter became one of the main movie villains of the XX century. Despite the fact that this character was played by several actors in different films, it was Anthony Hopkins who was and remains the best personified of this crazy role, which earned him the Academy Award.

Isabelle Adjani – “Obsessed”
Isabelle Adjani is one of the best French actresses of the 20th century who outplayed the most complex and multifaceted characters, including women suffering from mental disorders. Difficult to understand, “Obsessed” by Andrzej уulawski brought the actress first the Cannes Film Festival Silver Award, and then the César Award.

Jack Nicholson – The Shining
Like Adjani in his cinema, for many years Jack Nicholson was an ideal actor who played temperament, madness, craziness with special ease and depth at the same time. In “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” he played a patient pretending to be abnormal, but in “The Shining” by Stanley Kubrick, based on the novel by Stephen King, his hero would have goose bumps from all who watched the film.

Kevin Spacey – Seven
You can be a frightening hero not only in hysteria and schizophrenic seizure. This is proved by the equanimous hero of Kevin Spacey in an orange prison robe in the thriller “Seven”, because of which everything turned around.

Reliably playing madness is a sign of genuine acting talent, which is why actors for the role of heroes with mental disabilities win the Oscars and other film awards.
