Mon Confiado is a master at changing his physical appearance to perfectly portray his roles in movies. But take note: there’s hardly any CGI or special effects makeup involved here; it’s all Mon’s personal efforts to match the way he looks to that of his character.

On Instagram, Mon showed off a couple of his physical transformations—one where he is a muscular boxer, and another where he is a pot-bellied man with crooked teeth. With both characters looking so drastically different, you wouldn’t have known it’s the same person at first glance!
