The Truth: Is Marilyn Manson Scarier With Or Without Makeup

Must be a right ballache being Marilyn Manson! Every time he leaves the house he has to be adorned with a shit-ton of makeup.

But when he's not wearing it, as is his image, the 48-year old looks like a completely person.

I'm not sure how you would describe Marilyn Manson's style. Gothic hero meets KISS with a dash of Alice Cooper and David Bowie? Either way, it's rare to see him without enough makeup to make a 17-year-old girl trying to get into a nightclub seem au naturel.

He told the Fader magazine that he's always liked makeup. "My mom used to put her wigs and lipstick on me when I was little. I have one weird picture of me as a toddler with an unlit cigarette in my mouth, wearing her blonde wig and a diaper, sitting on the couch. Wonder how I ended up here."

He's had a bit of a break from his music career of late - which probably prompted the lack of make up. He's recently been working on his acting career, playing a white supremacist in Sons of Anarchy and a regular on a TV series called Salem. And that meant letting go of the white face paint and creepy contact lense.

In Sons Of Anarchy, he plays Ron Tully for six episodes in 2014 as a shot caller for The Aryan Brotherhood, incarcerated in jail.

Someone in the office mentioned that he looks a lot like Nicholas Cage - yeah I can see that! Maybe they're related?

And online people also think he looks like Alan Rickman, which I can also see.

You can watch the trailer for season three of Salem here.
