Black Widow suit, The Avengers – Scarlett Johansson (2012)
Feel a bit sorry for the actors performing female superheroes, like they don’t always have it easy. And during the press tour for The Avengers, Scarlett Johansson informed Collider of her insanely-tight screen costume, “It’s like 800 degrees in my outfit … and it’s a unitard, and I have nothing underneath it.
This seems, perhaps, that Johansson was afraid of her Black Widow attire from the beginning. Spoken on Inside the Actors Studio in 2017, she said about the suit, I mean, who decides to get into anything like that? You always say, ‘Oh God, really? Couldn’t it have, like, I don’t know, any type of a peplum skirt or something?
Gold bikini, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi – Carrie Fisher (1983)
The entire Star Wars franchise is packed with incredible outfits, but maybe none is more popular than the gold bikini Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia wears in Return of the Jedi.
Fisher admitted to some trepidation about the dress, though, saying on a 2016 episode of Fresh Air that when George Lucas introduced her the outfit, “[she] thought he was joking, and it made [her very nervous.”
I chopped his neck off with the chain that I killed him with. I always relished it, because I hated wearing that dress and sitting there rigid straight, and I couldn’t wait to kill him.
Purple latex, X-Men: Apocalypse – Olivia Munn (2016)
Before she was cast into movie series, Olivia Munn was a great admirer of her X-Men character Psylocke. And the actress tried more than a mask to render the superhero. In 2016, she told Collider, “She isn’t this promiscuous slutty girl just because she’s been dressed like this.”
Before she got in the dress, though, the latex was still broken even she has lubricant all over her. After the film was released, the look was panned – although the comic books adhered more or less. The ensemble was deemed both dumb and way too glamorous in a film featuring some pretty serious scenes.
Batsuit, Batman and Robin – George Clooney (1997)
Batman & Robin’s all has been a funny disaster. But the batsuit was certainly worse if the script and comedic scene were incorrect. George Clooney wasn’t able to get it off easily and had to pee in it. Even, it featured something which on the superhero costumes usually not seen: nipples.
And the Bat-nipples are mocked again years later. But Joel Schumacher, director, stood by his decision. Documentary 2005 Shadows of the Bat: The Dark Knight Cinematic Saga he said, “The bodies for the suits — they are inspired by Greek statues that have perfect bodies. It never transpired to me that I wouldn’t put nipples on the men’s suits because I didn’t know that the male nipple was controversial.
Pink dress, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – Emma Watson (2005)
During the Yule Ball scenes of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Emma Watson’s Hermione wore a pink dress. But while this was a perfectly suitable dress, fans of the series weren’t pleased. You see, in the source material, Hermione’s Yule Ball gown is purple-blue. Some also found a pink variant out of character.
The designer of the costumes for the movies said to Cosmopolitan, however. “[Hermione] was a tough girl”. She was a girl with boys [who just hung out]. And she’s in pink now and she’s on the Yule ball. People see her as a child – and a very beautiful girl which was not already.
Pants, Labyrinth – David Bowie (1986)
There was a pressing issue for many adults who saw Labyrinth when it first came out: did David Bowie wear a codpiece in the movie or not? But after a blogger analysed the problem carefully, it appears that the star in that department actually did not need help.
Yet, while the makers of Labyrinth got into hot water to make the bulge of Bowie so visible, they seem to be reluctant. Designer Brian Froud in a 2016 interview with Empire referred to “Perv Pants” as the music icon attire, and added, ” Oh, my God! How were we going to get away?!
Catwoman costume, Catwoman – Halle Berry (2004)
Critics disliked not just the Catwoman film in 2004, but also Halle Berry’s odd strappy catsuit seemed to be uncharismatic. For example, IGN said, “The costume alone couldn’t produce a bad movie but it definitely makes it the old college attempt.” Reno News & Review went further and suggested that Berry “burn the stupid costume for all to see.”
And while Berry did not go too far, the poorly judged flick, she still hates. In 2005, she managed to win a Razzie Award for her film “Worst Actress,” revealing that she would like to thank Warner Bros for the first time. Thank you so much for having me in a s**t film. “Me-ow.”
Mankini, Borat – Sacha Baron Cohen (2006)
Not every film dress is often a literal crime, but Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat’s notorious mankini may be. You see, six Czech guys, who posed on the doubtful swimming clothes in the capital of the country, were arrested in 2017 for “minor hooliganism.” The real location of Kazakhstan, of course, from which the fictional Borat hails.
In fact, Sacha Baron Cohen offered assistance to men, writing on Facebook: “To my fellow Czechs who have been detained: give me your information and demonstration that it was you, and I’ll pay your fine.” Yet, because of the mixture of feelings between the people of Kazakhstan and Cohen, you probably should avoid ever wearing a Mankini for laughter in the region.
Skimpy costume, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – Karen Gillan (2017)
Some were not impressed with the first photos of the Jumanji sequel in 2016. Although all male actors, including Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart and Jack Black, had their clothes on the videos, Karen Gillan played an outfit which at best looked much too tiny for her. Gillan, however, noticed what was going on and promised a payoff.
The characters seen in the pictures turned out to be the video game people the key characteristics of the film take on. “It seems ridiculous that the woman gets dressed like that and then the men are covered,” Gillan told the Evening Standard in 2017, “but this is exactly the trope we put in the 90s videos. She’s supposed to be like Croft. Like Croft. That’s the point – this absurd male fantasy.
Barely-there costume, Zardoz – Sean Connery (1974)
Sean Connery wanted to try something else – very different after he had hung the trendy James Bond tuxedo for the better. He was explicitly playing Zed’s role in the weird Zardoz sci-fi film, and Zed’s costume was just some red shine to cover up his modesty and boots.
Surprisingly, Connery didn’t seem to mind. When Vulture asked the ensemble’s producer, John Boorman, in 2014, he simply told the well-known bad-tempered star, “This is what you’ve got. You will wear that. “And” no argument “is supposed to have been there.
