Nowadays using computer generated imagery (CGI) and special effects is pretty much the norm. The final results may be epically realistic action scenes or mythical creatures coming to life — but things don't look quite as cool during the actual filming process. These goofy and hilarious behind-the-scenes photos are what actors really look like on set. 

"Deadpool"

It must be hard to act so serious when you look so ridiculous. 

"Superman Returns"

How do you get the job of wearing a green suit and controlling the Man of Steel's wires?! 

"Jurassic World"

You'll never be able to look at the raptors the same way again. 

"Iron Man 2"

They look more ready to be on an episode of "American Gladiators" than ready to save the world. 

"Guardians of the Galaxy"

Well, now we know that not all of Groot is CGI. 

"Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince"

It looks like Emma Watson is definitely trying to stifle a laugh during this scene. 

"The Revenant"

And the Oscar goes to...the man in the blue suit who played the bear!

"The Avengers"

It takes a lot of green screens to make a big, green Hulk. 

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes"

You must get a really good thigh workout playing an ape. 

"Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End"

This group of pirates couldn't even steal candy from a baby. 

"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug"

Benedict Cumberbatch knows that playing a dragon means go big or go home. 

"Green Lantern"

That suit is almost cooler than the one he wears in the film. 

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

Is this a film set or a shot featuring the latest army gear? 

"John Carter"

We didn't know it was possible for Willem Dafoe's face to look any crazier. 

"Life Of Pi"

The tiger looks a little blue...must be seasickness?

"The Twilight Saga: New Moon"

Good man in a suit, good. 

"Chappie"

He looks much more snuggly than hugging a robot.
