Christian Bale Weighs In

Christian Bale Weighs In

Christian Bale and his family head out of their home for the afternoon in Los Angeles on Sunday (September 27).

The 35-year-old Dark Knight actor appears to be gaining some of the weight back that he lost for his role in The Fighter. Christian recently finished shooting for his character, Dicky Eklund.

In The Fighter, Mark Wahlberg plays Micky Ward, a junior welterweight who became famous over three bouts with Arturo “Thunder” Gatti. His Rocky-like rise to fame was shepherded by his half-brother Dicky.

  • balelover

    yeah he is back…but his wife is always bad dressed…always dressed in black…blerghhhhhhh

  • Rs

    @balelover-CB always wears black as well. Clearly neither one is very materialistic and it’s refreshing to see.

  • crazy legs



  • Jenna

    Thank goodness he’s gaining some weight. And — almost more importantly — that his hair is growing back in full. The photos they had of him in character showed a receding hairline… I want Bruce Wayne back!!!

  • James

    Jared – Christian Bale is Welsh so why do you never call him a Welshman? You always call Gerard Butler a Scot and Robert Pattinson a Brit even though Robert has said himself that he likes to be called English not British.

  • tonie

    Looking good and I really like his hair buzzed.

  • Liege Lansoni

    Not on warmer days, the woman leaves to dress all in black, from head to toe. Does he not see the sickness of his wife of 10 years with the same hairstyle and same clothes? Think it’s great not to be materialistic, but to buy a machine, as it will buy, could buy another color! And the girl dressed in black and wearing a horrible. That is not to be materialistic, is to have the same bad taste!

  • carrie

    hello beautiful man! he looks great !
    did some one see the picture where he’s playing Jack Sparrow in a birthday party? great pix with a big smile!

    and about black chlothes,i believe they don’t care fashion: all they want is clean and comfortable chlothes for them.Their life only isn’t the fashion week

  • Darkest locks

    Wow, I’m impressed! He looked so scary bony in the pix for his character in The fighter. It was terrifiying. But here he looks okay. How do celebrities do that?!

  • Peach

    #6 – he was merely born in Wales – but he considers himself to be English. His parents were English and he moved away from Wales when he was very young.

    So JJ got it right this time….

  • Cris

    @balelover – They are normal people. Dress normally. I love the naturalness of them.They dress as they want. To be happy forever.

    @Rs – You’re right . “Clearly neither one is very materialistic and it’s refreshing to see”

  • Halo

  • lexy

    He looks great! He’s such a good actor.

  • mona

    Black is slimming and his wife has always been overweight so she wears it all the time for the same reason most people do.

  • JD

    I can’t believe how bad her hair always looks. Does she do her own highlights?

  • shane

    Bale’s a good actor, but I’ve seen brain surgeons who don’t take themselves as seriously as he does. Lighten up man!

  • cK_always

    @Darkest locks: It’s not just a celebrity thing. It’s intense dieting and exercising. Lots of hard work in other words. I’m sure we’d all bust our butts for a multi-million dollar paycheck though. :)

  • bones

    ugly in and out

  • Annabelle

    He’s back!!! And SO good looking!!! I think I just died and went to heaven…. *faints*

  • tonie

    @mona His wife is not overweight. She is normal size, not stick thin like most actresses. His daughter is adorable.


    @bones: Yeah,u are aren’t u???? Jealous much,huh huh huh UGMO???!!! I’ll bet ur 10 x’s uglier than a ghetto sewer rat,and 100% BITTER,hmmmm,such a pity,envy really isn’t ur color dear ^___^ BALEHEADS RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUULE!!!! \m/

  • maddox

    What he’s doing to his body is not healthy. He is aging so fast and he looks miserable all the time.

  • Peach

    Mona(#16) and JD (#17) – a little jealous are we????

  • Jokergurl

    Bale has lost weight more then Daniel Day Lewis for roles, he has to buff back up for Batman again, and the receding hairline, was shaved folks. Men if they are in good shape like Bale is, can easily go from buff to tautly muscled very quickly. Then again Bale sometimes goes overboard, anyone remember The Machinist YIKES! PAGING SKELETOR! Bale has said that it wasn’t the smartest thing to do. He’s dedicated to his craft and he’s damn good at his craft, no matter what he weighs.

  • cari

    Sibi is strikingly beautiful in person.

    No one is as devoted and protective of their family as he is.

    But why do you have to stake out his home?? HOW would that make YOU feel?

  • meh

    he looks so much healthier

  • katt

    i really don’t think he should do more of this dramatic weight lose or weight gain since he’s not getting any younger, it’s dangerous.
    I admired him for his craft, that he is being so professional and serious about a role, but one should really be careful, it’s quite health damaging from what I have read.


    Come on people! don´t mess with his wife, she is not a popular person or a star and she always looks great too because she is a beautiful woman! not fat at all! Bale you are the MAN!!!! I love you soooo much!

  • leto

    she is what?overweight?oh yeah right,go and get some glases.and she wears black,oh my godness,down with her.first two rules in showbizz:wear black and smile all time so its to boring for the paparazzis to follow who is smart and who is not???


    @Leto Absolutely with your words! I endorse them all!

  • Liset

    Hello Christian and Sibi and Emmeline. But is that really the kids name??
    True: Why should he be bothered at his home but people bother me and my daughter , take pictures, nose about the scene everywhere I go , eg. the beach, at home , at the shops. I do wonder. cos I’m not a film star or a famous.

  • Blueyes

    He looks great! They all do. His wife is not over weight she’s beautiful. Their daughter is just adorable. Great to see him getting buff again, missed that. Can’t wait to see Fighter sounds like a great movie for all involved.

  • Browneyes

    They are beautiful but he sure isn’t looking as good here as in his movies. These people gotta wear a lotta make-up to look like that. Look at Jonathan Rhys Meyers ugly, washed out in real life, gorgeous on camera caked in make-up . Make-up on men is hot especially on Ewan McGregor :p


    OMG! Bale doesn’t need any make up! he is so hot! looking good always!

  • Browneyes

    yeh love it when hes had a shave !! yum yum

  • sam

    Sibi is not particularly beautiful in person, but she’s not ugly either. She’s just an average looking girl who got very lucky after buzzing around the celebrity circuit long enough.

  • london

    His wife is not overweight??? I guess perhaps by your American Wal-Mart in Iowa standards she isn’t.

  • leto

    @london sorry but r u crazy?she is a healthy,goodlooking least more beautiful than these super-zero size-hurray- i -eat- a -tic tac- per -day-skeleton-woman on catwalks and some movies.(and no, i am not overweight.LOL)

  • Cupid

    Bale fluctuates in weight for different film parts and sometimes his wife ends up looking bigger than him. She’s not slim but I wouldn’t call her very overweight. She’s normal unless you’re talking about California and then of course she’s a whale, along with most of the population.

  • Browneyes

    Sibi has the kindest looking smile which makes me THINK she is the kindest person on the scene , maybe second to Christian B and a great mother. Give her chance you probably don’t know her , on a personal level anyway they are lowkey or they seem to be work focused ie. on Christian’s mega movies. BUt what I mean is they seem to do a lot of good within the realms of their “Hollywood” lifestyle. I’m always happy to see them and their beautiful child. It gives me the strength to pursue what I have to …….

  • Liset Lee

    I just watched Henry V. Ive been meaning to get a copy for ages. It is amazing what a great actor Christian has been even from such a young age. Great work by Renaissance films Plc/20.20 Vision .!!

  • Jokergurl

    @ sam, Sibi was Winona Ryder’s personal assistant, these two met on the set of Little Women, where Winona Ryder handpicked Christian to play the part of Theodore Lawrence. She wasn’t buzzing anywhere. They do make a lovely couple though.

  • ritu

    love u bale. you r the` knight` of my dreams.
