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.

I don’t think he is so slim, maybe it is because his features are thiner as he lose weight but for me the guy looks fine. You are all just looking for something to say and that’s all.
Bale is just doing his job. For sure it will be great!

christian, what are you doing, baby?? he fluctuates too much for each movie, so unhealthy.
when he loses weight like this he looks like he’s 25 tho.

wow! there’s a lot of doctor’s and therapists on this site commenting on how bad it is for his health and for his family life. i hope you are also out there saving patients.

obviously, it is for a movie role people.

Bale is a great actor. The Machinist really sucked though, because the director had no idea what he was trying to do, as evident from directors commentary on the dvd (and the sucky, unwatchable movie). I sure hope that, since Bale is jepordizing his health by losing so much weight so quickly — for the second time, the director makes the effort to figure himself out before he starts shooting.

@deraj tsuj: no,he didn’t beat his mother! it was “verbal assault”

Losing weight to the extreme does not mean you’re a great actor. Im no doc but this is not healthy especially to one’s heart.

Now that’s what I call a METHod actor!

“Method” acting has nothing to do with starving oneself. It’s about drawing on one’s emotions and memories. If you don’t have the relevant emotions or memories, then you either imagine them or talk to someone who does, get the picture from them, and borrow them. Bale is way overrated as an actor; in Dark Knight he stunk…

Thank the goddess Brad turned down that role!

Hope he gains weight after this. He is still kinda hot though.

Christian Bale is one of our finest actors EVER!
He has been given a true GOD given talent!!!
From Empire of the Sun to Public Enemies, he is amazing!
His body of work is excellent, with such a huge variety of films
to entertain us with! He never ceases to amaze me!
I read somewhere that yes he is thin now, but fit as a fiddle to play a boxer…now they have thinned out his hair and he is starting to look more like Dicky Ecklund!
ALL Hail The Bale!!!

he’s thin, but it not like unhealthy, i like his Bruce Wayne physique though

I’m sure he’ll be great in The Fighter. But, then, I’d like to see the studios make a Batman 3 so we can see more of healthy, fit Bruce Wayne with that gorgeous full head of hair… I think I’ll go watch The Dark Knight again so I can remember how hot Bale can be!

Christian is a realtively clean and successful actor who should be commended for going to those depths that he does to communicate characters and help people x

Being skinny in the Machinist made a lot of sense to me, he was insomniac and paranoid so he might just have forgotten to eat. What he complained about was that the reviewers cared too much about his weight loss than the actual film.
And if he plays a drug addict let him be skinny, it’s part of the role. I couldn’t imagine Brad Pitt being so commited.


hook me up with his nutritionist! LOL!

You people are idiots. This man clearly still weighs in the 160-170 range. He’s not that thin here, and it is not unhealthy to be thin.

In many eastern cultures fasting is still common, and is often used as a way to cleanse the body of toxins.

The stupidity and fatness of the average American is mindblowing.

You’ve talked loud but clear! I agree with you 100%. To be fat is to be unhealthy and not to be slim. I think he looks great as he fits!


This is the 2nd time he’s lost an unhealthy amount of weight for a role, I think he takes these movie roles a bit too seriously

UFC fighters drop 15 to 20 pounds in one to two days to go into a fight. Diago Sanchez dropped from 172 to 155 in one day for a fight. Do you think he’s unhealthy? Check out how much the top olympic runners weight compared to thier height. Are they unhealthy? You people crack me up.

Transport you for added raring article. Where else could anyone get that benign of message in untold a perfect way of output? I get a manifestation close week, and I am on the see for such acceptance.

He is only skinny because of the movie. And i am sure he doesn’t do drugs, he would problably not do crack, he is a serious actor. Don’t complain on that he is skinny, that is for a movie, he must do that for the role.
