Christian Bale: Holy Start Date, Batman Fans!

Christian Bale: Holy Start Date, Batman Fans!

Christian Bale looks to have lost even more weight for his role as boxer/trainer/drug addict Dicky Eklund in the new movie, The Fighter, on Monday (July 27) in Boston, Mass.

Over the weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con convention, Gary Oldman, aka Commissioner Gordon, let it slip that Christian would be throwing the rubber Batsuit on again next year to begin shooting the sequel to the blockbuster hit The Dark Knight.

“We start shooting next year,” Gary spilled . “Which means the movie won’t come out for another two years. But you didn’t hear it from me!”

Man he sure went for the full on hard core transformation.

# 2

jeez how can he do that to himself. That takes alot of dedication to your work

# 3

I really don’t like him after the incident in which he went all psycho with the sound guy, but I must admit that he is a great actor.
What he is doing to his health with losing all this way for his parts is not good.

# 4

aww.. only a week late jared. too bad as soon as you posted this new its after gary oldman recanted his statement. oldman basically told ‘ain’t it cool news’ that he had diarrhea mouth and warner brothers whopped his ass over it. lmaooo.. he said it could be 2 or 3 years before people hear anything about a new batman project.
.
props for trying.

He’s such a good actor. I love him for that.

He’s such a amazing actor. I applaud him for taking his roles so seriously, and always being so dedicated. He’s lost weight for a role before, and he’s being monitored by doctors. He’s pretty slim in these pictures, but he doesn’t look like he has taken it too far. He just looks really small.

Gary Oldman said his words were misinterpreted.. that’s not true he just said that it could start filming next year, or the year after that

He looks vary sickly! It’s frightening…

Very scary…………. This takes a hell lot of dedication to your work as someone pointed it out……Great actor but I never thought he is that sexy normally

creepy, he doesn’t look good

The health consequence of suddenly gaining or suddenly losing a lot of weight is bad. he is a serious actor what can i say.

he tries too hard but he’s not a good actor and he is killing himself

he lost way way more weight for the machinest this is nothig. I am sure hes doing it with the supervision of docs just as he did for the other rol. great actor so dedicated

The hair and makeup for this movie are doing a great job. Yes, Bale did lose some weight, but a lot of the illusion of him looking so bad is the changed hair (skull cap or real hair shaved I don’t know), bad skin tone due to makeup and oversized clothes that make him apear even thinner. He seems to kind of have his characters posture as well-he doesn’t usually walk like that in candid pictures.

Dedication or obsession ?! Obviously Bale thinks that it is worthwhile to basically starve himself for a movie…

He looks like hell.

He ain’t hot and he’s a druggie.

he’s doing this just for a role?
not worth it.

He needs to hurry up and finish this movie so he can eat something. He looks sick and drugged out. This is not a good look for him

This is unhealthy and not a good example to set for up and coming actors. The risk to health is not worth it, I don’t care how good you want to appear to be.

He’s in costume and makeup… relax.
