Christian Bale's tested his body limit again for 'Backseat'
Hollywood actor Christian Bale, who is known for testing the limits on his body making radical transformations for his movies, has once again amazed everyone with his new look for his upcoming movie 'Backseat'. The actor, 43, will play Dick Cheney, the former vice president and George W. Bush's second-in-command in the upcoming biopic, reports The Independent.
During a press conference for 'Hostiles' at Toronto Film Festival, Bale sported a shaven head and a much bigger physic than before. When asked how he managed to put on so much weight, he replied: "I've just been eating a lot of pies."
This, however, isn’t the first time that Bale has transformed his body into a character. In 2000, he lost 27 kilos to play Patrick Bateman in American Psycho. For The Machinist in 2004, he dropped almost 30 kilos more and weighed just 54 kg. The body transformation was so shocking that the film hardly needed any other tool to promote the film. Body sculpting soon became a habit and Bale bulked up to 100 kilos to play Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins in 2005.
In 2010 for The Fighter where Bale played a crack addict, he lost 14kg but for American Hustle in 2013 he gained it all back and 18 more kilos to his character.Now the actor will be seen pushing his weight around once again. His weight is taking the front seat for this Backseat.
