Insane Led Zeppelin tales that no one talks about

Led Zeppelin is arguably the first heavy rock band and one of the greatest bands of all time, period.

Actors who hated their iconic on-screen costumes

Part of the magic of being an actor is completely disappearing into a role.

From having to sit through eight torturous hours worth of makeup, to sweating dangerous amounts inside full body suits during long shoot days, many actors' most iconic roles also feature the costumes they hated most. Click through to see which costumes actors hated the most, and why exactly they were so tormented by them.
