These Actors Had A Real Problem With Their Iconic On-Set Wardrobes

A good costume can make or break a character. While it’s important to get all the details just right, it would also be nice if the actors could be as comfortable as possible under all those layers. It’s not always the Risky Business uniform of pajamas and sunglasses — sometimes actors get stuck with iconic costumes they absolutely despise.

Whether it’s that tight bodysuit or pounds of prosthetics, these memorable looks can leave an actor eager to burn a garment after shooting. Here are some of the most memorable and most unmanageable looks. Spoiler – there’s a lot of unbreathable latex involved.

Playing Natasha Romanoff, better known as Black Widow, gave Scarlett Johansson a taste of the Russian espionage turned superhero life in the Avengers series. Unfortunately, that also included copious amounts of boot sweat.

“It was so hot, I would wring out my socks at the end of the day” Johansson remarks. It also got so hot in the wetsuit that Johansson reportedly hallucinated on set. Who knew unbreathable latex was a natural bug repellent?
