Christian Bale Didn’t Just Get Fat

Christian Bale has been dedicated and disciplined in controlling his weight for film roles, famously losing 65 pounds and eating only an apple and a can of tuna a day for The Machinist, bulking up his muscle mass for American Psycho and the Dark Knight films, and sporting a pot belly in American Hustle.

The actor looks almost unrecognisable at the moment, as he gains weight to play Vice President Dick Cheney upcoming biopic Backseat.

Asked about how he’d done it at Toronto International Film Festival this week, he smiled: “I’ve just been eating a lot of pies.”
