Christian Bale Looks Crack Cocaine Addicted

Christian Bale Looks Crack Cocaine Addicted

Christian Bale looks to have lost a significant amount of weight and thinned his hair for his character in the new movie, The Fighter.

The 35-year-old British actor shot new scenes on Monday afternoon (July 13) in Los Angeles. In the movie, Christian plays “welterweight boxer turned trainer turned drug addict” Dickie Eklund (welterweight is heavier than lightweight but lighter than middleweight).

FYI: Christian is a notorious method actor, who lost a staggering 63 pounds for the 2004 film The Machinist.

Dear God… He looks nigh unrecognizable…. And unhealthy. =(

I think hes an Aussi…not british

I am very happy for him because he is doing now what he loves best! Acting and working! Good luck Christian! you look fine even on that fit! Love you man!

Hey, it’s me again. Just chiming in to say that I agree with Gloria. I think he’s back to doing the character acting he loves best and that we haven’t seen since 3:10 to Yuma and Rescue Dawn in 2007. I like a blockbuster just as much as the next person, but there’s only so much you can do in one. He is at his best when he can really sink his teeth into a meaty role. Can’t wait to see his performance.

@Rayanne:

what’s his number?

They may be planks, them british actors but at least they can actually act. Not like most of the ****** faketors in HW these days.

I’m Bale-Bating!

He looks like a brunette Hayden Christensen..?

GREAT ACTOR !

he’s very talented!

I found a great site “”"”"B l a c k W h i t e C o n n e c t DoT c O m “”"”"” It ‘s where you have the opportunity dreaming about dating a charming beauties and even hot celebs and make it true!

That can’t be healthy.

I have never been able to understand the fascination with this guy – he is not that good of an actor.

That is noithing compared to The Machinist where you can see his ribs and spinal cord as he bends down.
I wish he would think of his daughter. Life is too short to be messing with your body like this. Talented guy but mad to do this. He still won’t get an Oscar because people think he’s an aggressive twat.

I recall watching ‘The Machinist’ with utter horror at Christian Bale’s weight loss for the part he played. I would hate to see him get that thin again for a movie. Like someone else said his emaciated body was very distracting while watching ‘The Machinist’.

it’s totally CRAZY to lose this amount of weight for a movie role. And the fact that he has done is more than once doesn’t prove that he’s a method actor. If anyone knows anything about METHOD acting you do not need to put your body through dangerous health hazards for a role.

as a method actor to play a murderer does one need to actually KILL another or if you are a method actor do you actually need to shoot heroin or smoke crack to portray an addict….NO.

He’s endangering his health for sensationalism. He’s not a serious actor he’s an egomaniac.

losing that much weight can not be good for the heart of body and he’s had to do it for another movie in the past. I hope it doesn’t take a toll on him.

omg he looks great,. the americans are so averagely fat that they claim that(CB)’s sickly thin. many orientals are thinner than that and are way healthier and fit than those who say brandon fraser’s pregnant belly looked OK. so, relax,

i can’t stand him as an actor but he’ll probably win some award for this

While I think he takes it to extremes you have to praise the mans dedication to his roles. I believe he is a great actor. There are a lot of actors\actresses in hollywood that would benefit from his influence (and I’m only referring to his acting here!). Its good to see that he takes his job seriously, though I really hope he has medical guidance to what he’s doing to his body.

Maybe he is on drugs.

Woa, I imagine his performance in this will be brilliant. His committment to his more serious acting roles are brilliant.

On the apple diet again….

Can’t wait to see this movie. He makes the movies worthwhile because he is actually acting, as opposed to everyone else out there just showing up and doing the same character.

Hard to see him looking so rough though.

Thanks Christian, for your dedication…

He’s going to ruin his health in the long run if he keeps taking his body to these unnatural ‘extremes.’ You can’t subject yourself to this kind of self-inflicted physical abuse over and over again and not eventually pay a price for it.
