If there was one thing Guardians of the Galaxy co-stars Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and Karen Gillian have in common, it’d be the early call times and long and brutal hours they spent in hair and makeup to morph into their green, grey and blue-skinned roles, Gamora, Drax and Nebula, on the Marvel movie set. While Zoe, admittedly, had a much harder time coming to terms with the daily prolonged process (and very much prefers the motion capture suit suit and “putting a few green dots” on her face like she did for Avatar, she says), her WWE Wrestling co-star, Dave took to it like a fish to water – even if it meant he had to stand throughout his extreme makeover.

With three characters undergoing drastic – and physical – makeovers for their roles and a handful others put together with the help of unflattering green suits and CGI effects, abnormalcy (read: non-human looking characters) is definitely the new black in Guardians.

Read on as Zoe and Dave lets in on their makeup woes for their movie roles, and check out other actors who underwent radical makeovers for their movie roles!
