The truth is that it is difficult to believe that this is the same Christian Bale as that of ‘ Batman ‘ . With a few extra pounds (to say the least) and a shaved head, we see him very prepared for his new role in the movie ‘ Backseat ‘.
Bale will represent former Vice President Dick Cheney, who was George Bush’s second-in-command , and for that he has gained weight on the basis of an American Thanksgiving classic . “I can only say that I have eaten many pies until now,” he told Variety . He was seen for the first time this week, at a press conference in Los Angeles.
But this is not the first time that Christian Bale has to make jerebeques with his body to adapt it to paper. In total contrast to its current appearance, it thinned to skeletal levels for its 2004 appearance in ‘ El Maquinista ‘. After regaining the 32 kilos he had lost and went to give everything in the gym for ‘Batman’: he got back to his weight and gain 14 kilos of muscle in just one year . Then he lost weight again for ‘ The Fighter ‘ in 2010 and had to take beer belly for ‘ The Big American Scam ‘ three years later.
It is not so easy
It seems incredible that he is the same person in all these photographs. This, although it is admirable, is not highly recommended for health. There is no doubt that Christian Bale is an actor dedicated to his roles, but at 43, he has already admitted that he can not force his body like he did before . “I still have not lost all the weight I took for ‘The Big American Scam’, and it’s been 6 months now, I know that when I was in my twenties it would have been a matter of 2 months and that’s it,” he told USA Today .
Hopefully the health of our beloved actor does not get worse with so much change, and that he starts to consider a bit of control in this aspect. At the moment we can not complain, as it continues to give us papelazos for our cinephile delight , and surely in ‘Backseat’ will follow the same line. This awaited film will be released in 2018, but a specific date is not yet known. We will continue informing!
