29 Photos Explaining Why the Internet Went Crazy Over Maine Coons

What do we know about Maine Coons? First of all, they’re the biggest house cats. Second, they have a crazy amount of fur. Third, they are a little bit arrogant. Fourth, their ancient ancestors have some mysterious magic.

We at Bright Side are charmed by the greatness of Maine Coons and decided to share their magic with you. The babysitter cat surprised us the most!

1. Infinite fluffs

2. All Maine Coons love winter.

3. When these cats go for a walk, even dogs want to hide!

4. “Mom, guess who!”

5. Nobody likes to go to the vet, not even Maine Coons.

6. 9-week old Maine Coon kittens waiting for their vet check

By the age of 3-4 months, Main Coons are already as big as regular cats.

7. “Gizmo just can’t decide between the box or the lid! What a dilemma!”

8. “I think I have lions among my ancestors.”

9. “He was the tiniest one out of all his brothers and sisters when we picked him up…not so much anymore!”

10. “Get your cameras ready, the cat is going to yawn now!”

11. “What do you have there? Will you give it to me?”

12. “Cordelia the cat is a big girl!”

13. You don’t need a babysitter if you have a Main Coon.

This 3-year-old Main Coon is the longest cat on the planet. He loves babysitting. His owners are lucky: they have a babysitter and a bodyguard.

14. “My Maine Coon doesn’t lick/clean himself as much as he is supposed to, which caused him to get extremely knotted. I went to the vet with a large cat and left with a small lion.”

15. “Is she still following me?”

16. Keeping balanced is something they’re good at.

17. “Hey, I’m not doing any harm, I promise!”

18. “I am the King.”

19. “Look me in the eye, human!”

20. The cat looks like a mountain in the middle of nowhere.

21. Maine Coons were meant to take part in photoshoots.

22. My human Otto and me

23. Her Majesty is on her throne.

24. “Every time I ask Terry to keep calm for a photo, he makes this face.”

25. When visiting the vet: “I’ll behave, I promise!”

26. When you’re always with your Main Coon:

27. The Main Coon, Lord has only one eye, but the real pirate still enjoys his life.

28. If you have a Main Coon, the wind won’t stop you from taking a photo.

15 Actors Behind Famous Movie Characters That Are Hard to Recognize

In the movie industry, actors often look much different on film than they do in real life. They cut and dye their hair, gain or lose weight, and spend many hours with makeup artists every day to transform into someone else. The magic of Hollywood is that actors look so convincing in their roles that we forget that these people we see on the screen don’t actually exist in real life. And sometimes it may leave us in shock when we find out how actors who played our favorite characters look in person.

Here at Bright Side, we’ve collected some of the most impressive actor transformations from some of your favorite films.

1. Nebula (Guardians of the Galaxy films) — Karen Gillan

For the role of this villain, Nebula, Karen Gillan shaved her head and had to spend many hours with makeup artists every day of shooting to get transformed into the character. What’s interesting is that no CGI (computer-generated imagery) was used to turn her into Nebula — professional makeup artists did all the work!

2. Mystique (X-Men films) — Rebecca Romijn

Rebecca Romijn is not only an actress but also a professional model. Her makeup for the role of Mystique covered 60% of her body and took a crazy 9 hours for makeup artists to apply everything. Rebecca’s look for the movie was also kept in secret so she had to sit in a dark room during the breaks.

3. Emperor Haban Limaï (Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets) — Aymeline Valade

French model Aymeline Valade has a specific, sophisticated appearance. No wonder she performed in the role of such a beautiful planet race. It’s unbelievable how unrecognizable she is in the movie.

4. Tia Dalma (Pirates of the Caribbean films) — Naomie Harris

We suspect that all the Pirates of the Caribbean fans remember the charismatic voodoo-practicing Tia Dalma. And it’s absolutely incredible how different Naomie Harris, who played her in the movie, looks in person. And what’s even more amazing is her performance — Tia Dalma is a very specific character, a natural witch with notable body language. She’s a perfectly rounded out character and completely different from the actress.

5. Gimli (The Lord of the Rings films) — John Rhys-Davies

Now we know that if you want to look different, you just need to grow a beard and dye it red! But it’s also the actor’s talent and charisma that helped the all-smiling John to become the combative Gimli.

6. Enchantress (Suicide Squad) — Cara Delevingne

Famous model and actress Cara Delevingne played the main antagonist in the well-known Suicide Squad. Her mysterious look of the Enchantress is very eye-catching, but she definitely looks very different from her true self. To get into character, Cara wandered naked through the woods near her home in England and howled at the moon to feel one with nature. Sounds crazy, but it worked pretty well.

7. Darth Maul (Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace) — Ray Park

Honestly, we had no idea that such simple face paint could make a person unrecognizable. The secret is that paint can visually change facial shapes, and hide or highlight something — and the power of it is right in front of you!

8. Jaylah (Star Trek: Beyond) — Sofia Boutella

French actress Sofia Boutella is also not easily recognized with white hair, wider eyes and lack of brows in her role of Jaylah. Not only does she look different, but she also acts differently from the other characters we know her as.

9. Joker (The Dark Knight) — Heath Ledger

Heath seems to be one of the luckiest actors — his makeup job took less than one hour, and he claimed that it always felt like he wasn’t wearing it at all. But not only did he look like Joker, but he also behaved like him, and the makeup is partly to thank for this. For example, Joker’s habit of licking his lips was developed by the actor to prevent his makeup from coming off his face.

10. Griphook (Harry Potter films) — Warwick Davis

It’s absolutely impossible to recognize Warwick Davis in his role of Goblin Griphook in the Harry Potter franchise. His makeup, as it usually does, consisted of several different pieces and its application took anywhere from 2.5 to 4 hours every day starting at 4 AM.

11. Marlene McFly (Back to The Future: Part II) — Michael J. Fox

Marty McFly wasn’t the only character Michael played in the trilogy. Another character is Marty’s daughter, Marlene from the second movie. We always thought she looked kind of weird and now we know why!

12. Lisbeth Salander (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) — Rooney Mara

Rooney Mara had to make many changes in herself for her most famous role of Lisbeth. She lost some weight, cut and dyed her hair, got many piercings and became a completely different person.

13. Imperator Furiosa (Mad Max: Fury Road) — Charlize Theron

We don’t know what exactly makes Charlize so unrecognizable — a shaved head, dirt, old clothes or her left arm made by CGI — probably everything in total! But she’s definitely different and absolutely stunning in her role of Furiosa.

14. Auggie (Wonder) — Jacob Tremblay

It’s hard to recognize the smiling and absolutely healthy Jacob behind the unconfident and closed-off Auggie who suffered from Treacher Collins syndrome. To get into character, Jacob and his family visited kids with the same syndrome Auggie had. To look the way he had to, he spent an hour and a half with makeup artists. As a result, his performance was very touching and heartwarming.

15. LaVona (I, Tonya) — Allison Janney

Allison Janney played the role of the harsh mother of famous ice-skater, Tonya Harding and her transformation is very impressive! Janney’s performance was approved both by audiences and critics, and she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in the film which only took her 8 days to film.

12 Well-Known Men Who Used to Be Women

According to a study that was published in 2017, there are over one million transgender people in the US alone, with 50% of them being young adults. These people had been walking in the wrong shoes for so long and decided that it was time to change that. Re-assigning their gender was just the first step to find their true selves and start their new lives.

Bright Side would like to show you how 12 women completely changed their lives when they decided to become men and get the body that feels like home to them.

1. Aydian Dowling

Aydian is the first transgender man to have ever been featured on the cover of Gay Times magazine. Before that, he was part of a campaign that was trying to get him on the cover of Men’s Health and he even appeared on Ellen to maximize his chances, but unfortunately he didn’t succeed. He said that the first time someone saw him as a man was the most defining day of his life. That happened while he was waiting in line and a woman behind the counter referred to him as “sir,” which made him feel, for the first time, that he was being seen as the person he always wanted to be.

2. Jaimie Wilson

Jamie was 18-years-old when he decided to start transitioning from female to male. When he announced his decision to his family and friends, almost all of them abandoned him and thought that he was “too feminine” to be a man. They were shocked to hear the news since, as they said, he didn’t “show any signs” all these years, referring to his feminine look. Even today, many people accuse him of trying too hard to look like a man. He isn’t sad anymore about the people that left him, since he’s found new friends in the LGBTQ community and his true identity.

3. Elijah Stephens

This man was the first in New Jersey to acquire a man’s reproductive organ. This allows him to experience the entire sensation of having a penis. The doctors used skin from Elijah’s forearm in an operation that lasted 14 hours. The procedure was successful and, after a while, Elijah learned how to live with and go through his everyday life with his new organ. The best part is that Elijah has had his longtime girlfriend along with him since the first day he started transitioning, and together they’ve overcome all the hurdles.

4. Ian Harvie

Ian Harvie is a stand-up comedian who became famous for his role on the popular TV series Transparent and Mistresses. Hollywood categorizes him in the transgender area and he has become a powerful voice for the community’s needs and problems. When he was young, his mom would put him in dresses on formal occasions, but he would change back into his boy clothes when they would get back home. Ian first came out as homosexual to his family when he was 19, but still felt a weight on his shoulders. This weight was lifted when he transitioned and started his new journey in life. He is now advocating for the transgender community and doing stand-up all over the US.

5. Laith Ashley

Laith is one of very few transgender models with a tremendous career. He was even the first trans man to be a member of the Pit Crew on RuPaul’s Drag Race. He says that he always liked to spend more time with the boys and used to rip his dresses up and rip the bows off of his girly underwear. He didn’t start his transition until he was almost 25 and after it was complete he saw his modeling career skyrocket. However, there have been cases where people have declined to work with him or represent him right after they learned that he was a transgender man. It’s also very hard to find work as an actor since producers won’t cast him either as a man or a transgender man, simply because they want faces that are visibly transgender and not as masculine as Laith is.

6. Lucas Silveira

Lucas Silveira is the front man of a Canadian rock & roll band and the first transgender man to be voted Canada’s Sexiest Man Alive. His transition journey began when he ended his 6-year relationship with his then girlfriend. He spent many years feeling unhappy with his life and thinking that transitioning was impossible so he should just learn to live as a woman. After his breakup, he decided that it was time to chase after his true identity, something that affected his band, but only in the beginning. Even today, some people still refer to him as “her” and he tries to be very patient, thinking that they are just ignorant or uncomfortable.

7. Ryan Sallans

Ryan Sallans is a published author and a carpenter who decided to start his journey to become a male back in 2005. Since that day, Ryan has been a recognized advocate and spokesperson for the transgender community and has spoken at over 70 universities across the United States. His mission is to educate people around the globe about trans people and prove to them that no matter how afraid you are, you can accomplish anything you want if that’s your destiny.

8. Shane Ortega

Shane Ortega first served in the US army as a female and then as a transgender man in Afghanistan. His mother is a lesbian and he grew up in an environment surrounded by the LGBTQ community and its values. Even though he knew the military’s restrictions on homosexuals and transgenders, he didn’t hold back and served his country. He is now an advocate for the LGBTQ members of the military and fights to try to lift the ban regarding them joining the armed forces.

9. Ryan Cassata

Ryan Cassata is an American musician who had a double mastectomy at the age of 18. However, he had already identified as a man from the age of 13. He has never taken testosterone — as most trans men do — and he says that one of the biggest issues in his everyday life is walking in public restrooms, where he sometimes gets verbally or even physically attacked. He has appeared on famous TV shows, including Larry King Live, and is constantly trying to help people who are now going through this transition.

10. Leo Sheng

Leo Sheng started his transition back in 2014, when he also had his first major surgery. He has been sharing his journey on Instagram in order to try and teach people about what transitioning means and what it takes. It took him a long time until he could post anything from his childhood or early teen years, due to the feminine clothing and persona he had. At first, he pretended like that time never existed in his life. His goal is to lift the stigma off the transgender community and make people realize that trans people are just like everyone else.

11. Elliot Fletcher

Elliot Fletcher is one of the most successful young trans male actors in Hollywood, having played in series like Faking It, The Fosters and Shameless. He also participated in the first sexual scene between a cisgender and a transgender person on TV and his goal is to be the first transgender superhero. He always identified as a man and he tried to end his life twice during his school years, simply because he couldn’t live as a woman. Everyone would always refer to him as a woman and he preferred being dead to living this way. Then, at the age of 17, he came out to his parents as transgender and asked his teachers to refer to him as “him” and not “her.” Now, he is happier than ever with the way he looks and surrounds himself only with people who love and understand him.

12. Chris Mosier

Chris Mosier is a triathlete who was a catalyst in changing the guidelines for the participation of transgender athletes in international games. He is the first athlete to be included on the US team and was also the first to participate in a Nike advertisement. He used to date a lot of guys back in his college days, but one day he met a woman that later became his wife. He had trouble identifying as a lesbian and always thought that he was heterosexual. The reason for that was that he didn’t identify as a woman. He also felt disappointed with his body and was never okay with his breasts, until he started transitioning back in 2010. His wife not only supported him through the journey, but he also achieved more records in his career competing against male athletes during this time.

How strong do you think someone must be to go through a change like this and face all the difficulties that come with it? Please tell us what you think down in the comment section.

12 Child Actors From Harry Potter Whose Lives Have Changed Since Filming

The filming of Harry Potter lasted for 10 years. Child actors who are almost 30 now devoted a third of their lives to this franchise, but not all of them continued their acting careers — some of them became photographers, musicians, and even jockeys. What do the people who played Luna, Neville, Seamus, and other characters do now? Let’s find out!

Bright Side wanted to know if the lives of the actors from this franchise have changed since the films. We’re sure that you’ll learn many interesting facts while reading this article.

12. Joshua Herdman (Gregory Goyle)

Josh Herdman played one of Draco Malfoy’s friends, Gregory Goyle. We hardly recognize this young villain who studied at Slytherin: he’s a mixed martial arts fighter now.

11. Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood)

The role of weird Luna was a form of treatment for Evanna Lynch. At the age of 11, she was hospitalized due to anorexia. She wrote a letter to J.K. Rowling and told her of her problem, and mentioned that she’d always wanted to play a part in Harry Potter. The writer answered her and they began writing to each other. 3 years later, Rowling invited the girl to attend an audition. Evanna managed to shine brighter than 15,000 applicants and got the role even though she wasn’t experienced at acting. After the Harry Potter films, she acted in 5 more movies. Her latest work was a role in My Name Is Emily. Now, Lynch is taking part in Dancing With the Stars.

10. Harry Melling (Dudley Dursley)

Though Harry Melling is the grandson of an actor, he’d never acted in movies before his role as Harry’s nasty cousin. At age 18, Melling lost so much weight that he’d changed beyond recognition. So to take part in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, he had to wear a suit that made him look plumper. The film was a crucial period in Melling’s life: he graduated from a theatrical school and The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Today, he acts in theatres and takes part in movies and TV series. Most recently he acted in The Lost City of Z and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.

9. Devon Murray (Seamus Finnigan)

Devon Murray is originally from Ireland and had never heard about Harry Potter before he got his role. He’s been acting in movies since he was 6 (he was in Yesterday’s Children, so he didn’t even have to audition). Murray also loves horseback riding: he takes part in competitions and has 6 horses. Devon says that the role of Seamus Finnigan didn’t make him famous in Ireland.

8. Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley)

Bonnie Wright decided to go to the audition thanks to her brother — he said she looked like Ginny. After Harry Potter, she starred in 13 films and established her own film company where she works as a screenwriter, film director, and film producer. Additionally, Bonnie is a vegetarian involved in charitable activities.

7. James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley)

James and Oliver Phelps had never acted in films before Harry Potter but they really loved the books about the kid wizard which is why their mom took them to the audition right after she heard about it. The twins had to pass 6 audition stages before they finally got the roles. Today, they act in movies (they took part in the third season of Kingdom), play golf, and do charity.

6. Stanislav Yanevski (Viktor Krum)

Stanislav Yanevski from Bulgaria got the role of a student from Durmstrang, the Northern wizarding school, though there were around 600 more actors that wanted the role. Stanislav also acted in several films. His latest work was a role in Resistance in 2011.

5. Sean Biggerstaff (Oliver Wood)

In the Harry Potter films, Sean played Oliver Wood, the captain of the Gryffindor Quidditch team. Alan Rickman worked with Sean in the film The Winter Guest, so he recommended the boy for the role. Today, Biggerstaff continues to build his acting career.

4. Luke Youngblood (Lee Jordan)

Luke played Lee Jordan, an enthusiastic member of Gryffindor whose main role was to keep the audience up to speed on how the teams were doing during the school Quidditch matches. At age 32, he’s already starred in 10 TV series (like Glee and Lie to Me) and now plays one of the main parts in Galavant. He also does work in theatre and sings.

3. Hugh Mitchell (Colin Creevey)

The role of this small Harry Potter fan was the first for Hugh. Later, he took part in 16 films and series. Today, he’s a composer, singer, and photographer.

2. Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom)

The small Matthew Lewis managed to persuade his mom to take him to the audition where they had to wait in a line for 5 hours. The actor was as unlucky as his character during the shoot: he had to wear fake teeth, plastic pads behind his ears, and a suit that made him fatter. And once, Helena Bonham Carter accidentally perforated his eardrum, and he couldn’t hear for a few days. Now Matthew continues his acting career and played a part in Me Before You. He also got married to Angela Jones, an event planner at Universal Studios.

1. Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy)

In the film, Draco was Harry’s enemy, but in real life, Tom Felton was a friend of Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint. Emma Watson even confessed that he was her first love. Unfortunately, it wasn’t mutual. Before taking part in Harry Potter, Tom played parts in movies and sang in the choir. As of now, he has 2 music albums and plays in films — you can see him in Origin, a science fiction series.

21 Things Whose Size Came as a Total Surprise

When we look at photographs, we sometimes don’t have any idea of the true size of certain things. In order to understand our world better, we should see these objects in comparison with others. The things we considered small may turn out to be really huge.

23 Photographers Who Know How to Trick Our Eyes

We enjoy looking at photos online but we often don’t notice things happening in them. For example, we may not realize that there’s a line of tourists behind a cool landscape photo, that an engagement ring is actually on top of a phone, or that a kiwi is actually someone’s dog

24 Things That Drive Us Crazy Even More Than Public Transport

Annoying things are everywhere: a sock of a passenger next to you invades your personal space, a product that you bought turns out to be twice as small as you expected, and so on. We all probably have these moments that we’d like to forget.

Bright Side is sure that there are situations and people we’d better avoid in order to keep a good emotional balance in our lives.

There’s always a guy who thinks that all the weights in the gym belong to him.

When you really want to post a new pic on Instagram:

“This guy is watching Netflix in the movie theater without headphones. We asked the staff to do something about it. So they came after 40 minutes and told him to mute it, but he doesn’t care.”

A lamp in a kids’ room

They probably didn’t train the new staff.

When your pocket catches on the door handle:

Perfectionists, keep out!

“These shoes are $500 and the design makes them look dirty.”

This driver took up 4 parking spaces.

“This sock is clearly in my space. Please help!”

How could they make such a silly mistake?

Hungry and fooled

“This makes me mad.”

This drink holder could spoil your evening.

“So this is why my laptop wouldn’t charge.”

“I decided to try use less plastic so I ordered 4 re-usable straws, this is the amount of packaging they came in…”

When you try to peel an egg and end up removing all the white:

The IT guys thought that this was okay.

“I paid 3 times.”

When the fabric gets stuck inside your zipper:

This epic 2¢ discount

It’s so annoying when you almost believed in good luck, but it was just an ad.

Useful pocket

When you buy a pack of gum and mascara and get a paper scarf:

Bonus: IKEA be like…

how we create videos for millions of viewers

All jobs

There are things that we strive to do every day — get up on the right side of the bed, communicate with positive people, laugh a lot, learn something new, and create — create — create.

We try our best to fill your days with these things. However, you probably didn’t know that not only is 5-Minute Crafts a source of educational articles, funny comic strips, and exciting stories but it is also a bunch of other projects we do to try to make our world work a little better every day.

Today we want you to see what our creative processes look like from the inside and invite you into our studios where videos that inspire millions of people are made.

When we say “millions,” we mean it.

Tap the image to inspire millions!

In case you didn’t know it: YouTube gives a silver button for 100,000 subscribers, a golden button for 1 million subscribers, and a diamond button for 10 million subscribers. Today we currently have 34 silver buttons, 11 golden buttons, and 2 diamond buttons.

We are trying to inspire as many people as we can and that’s why we make videos about sports, magic, dieting, health, and quizzes. We also make our own cartoons and kids’ shows that are available in 10 languages and viewed in every corner of the world.

5-Minute Crafts is the largest project about DIY (do it yourself) in the world and it inspires 48,000,000 subscribers on Facebook and 32,000,000 subscribers on YouTube.

In 2017, 5-Minute Crafts and the main English channel Bright Side received the VideoAces award. This reward is the highest accolade we could receive for the most viewed media on the entire web.

All this content is created by people with golden hands, golden heads, and other “precious” parts of the body.

Here’s what working on projects for 5-Minute Crafts looks like sometimes.

We are not professional actors.

But we do our best to stay confident and learn to work in various roles.

And we are not directors with many years of experience.

We are professionals completely devoted to our work, as well as, people who love beautiful photos and exciting videos.

We are dreamers who are ready to do anything to execute our ideas.

Our mantra goes like this, “Do what you and millions of viewers like.” We come up with our own ideas and turn the best of them into reality. When we are making a video, it’s we who decide how to do it better, when to do it, and where to do it. There are no frames — all we need is a creative spark and a like-minded team.

We learn together with you.

We love kids and we try to not forget what being a kid is like.

Kids are frequent visitors to our studio. Who else if not a kid can help to make a cool video, give an honest and objective assessment, or help any adult remember the best moments of their childhood?

We believe that being ordinary is not interesting.

We are not afraid to look silly, awkward, or funny because we live to make people smile more, especially toward each other.

We read every comment that you leave.

Tap the image to read comments.

We feel happy when you like everything and feel sad when you scold us.

We believe in magic and try to be magicians by ourselves.

This is what one of the places where the masterpieces are created looks like and it’s where the magic happens. Creative chaos is a normal thing here, but this isn’t true for the equipment in our studio because everything that we need for making a good video is always in its place and ready when we need it.

And this is our warehouse, in the depths of which you can find any artifact that you need.

Tap the image to find an artifact.

There’s an abundance of things that have been collected here with so many years of work. We usually find something, get amazed by it, and then accurately label it and put it away in case we need it in the future!

We always have a place for new people.

But we have to confess that not all of our employees are ordinary people.

This is Valera. He simply appeared one day and just stayed with us. He’s “dying” to paint the town red and uplifts everyone’s mood daily. Valera is always ready to listen to each of us, give us the support we need, and even a hug in a difficult moment. Be like Valera!

All in all, our mission is to bring more positive things to life and inspire people all around the world.
