Gere looks barely recognizable as he adopts a grandpa look for his drama film, while Swift looks different wearing a dark-colored wig when filming Philip Noyce's sci-fi movie.
Richard Gere and Taylor Swift have undergone transformations for their new movies, "Franny" and "The Giver" respectively. The former is spotted getting a more drastic makeover, while the latter is seen concealing her natural honey-colored tresses under brunette wig.
Gere, 64, looked almost like Billy Connolly as he was sporting long grey locks and some facial hair. He was unrecognizable in an eccentric plaid blazer with a yellow pocket square and an eye-popping animal-print scarf. A walking stick and a pair of vintage glasses completed his grandpa look.
In the movie, the "Arbitrage" actor plays a hedonist who tries to befriend a young couple played by Dakota Fanning and Theo James. He shot his scene in Philadelphia, touring the town in a chauffeured Mercedes Benz convertible while holding up his stick and flailing his arms from the backseat.
Country/pop singer Swift, meanwhile, plays Jeff Bridges' on-screen daughter in the adaptation of a dystopian children's book of the same title by Lois Lowry. She, along with her castmates that included Alexander Skarsgard and Katie Holmes, filmed the movie in Cape Town, South Africa.
