Robin Williams

Robin Williams When he donned the dress: “Mrs. Doubtfire” (1993) Why he did it: His ex got custody of the kids, and since Williams’ character was an actor anyway, it was no problem for him to turn himself into a comforting nanny (with the help of Harvey Fierstein) in order to spend more time with his children. Convincing? It was pretty good. Good enough to fool a man’s ex-wife? Eh… Costume feasibility: This one seems a little labor-intensive. Williams worked a powdery effect that seems difficult to pull off.
