What Does The Cast Of 'Orange Is The New Black' Look Like In Real Life? Crazy Eyes Is Crazy Pretty
They're almost here, they're almost here, they're almost here. And by "they're" we mean the fabulous cast of Netflix's Orange is the New Black . We've gone almost an entire year without the inmates we love and the officers we love to hate from Litchfield Prison, but they're finally ready to bring laughter and fear back into our lives. And although we're anxiously waiting to find out what happened to Piper and Pennsatucky, we're also pretty jazzed just to see what antics Crazy Eyes, Nicky, Red, and the others are going to get themselves into this season. Plus, we just miss those ugly brown and orange outfits.
However, those ill-fitting outfits often make us forget that the women and men who play their OITNB counterparts don't always go for the prison-chic look in real life. In fact, they pretty much never go for that look because they're all gorgeous people who'd rather not look like they live in an all-women's prison facility. As much as we love them for their overly-shaped black eyebrows, their scraggly hair, or their "crazy eyes," when they're not filming their insanely popular television show, they go for makeup and clothing that is more fitting of the badass actresses and actors that they are.
Take a look at what some of the actors of OITNB look like on and off the set:
1. Danielle Brooks as Taystee:
Danielle Brooks in real life:
Although, we bet she could still pull off wearing Piper's hair in real life...
2. Taryn Manning as Pennsatucky:

Manning might win for biggest transformation, because those Pennsatucky teeth are seriously the worst.
3. Emma Myles as Leanne:

Obviously she can handle that fierce red hair.
8. Natasha Lyonne as Nicky:

She is seriously stunning.
10. Pablo Schreiber as Pornstache:
