Christian Bale has dropped out of his upcoming film Enzo Ferrari due to health concerns.
“Christian has reluctantly has withdrawn because of health concerns related to the weight gain in order to resemble Ferrari,” the 41-year-old actor’s rep tells us. “Christian made radical transformations in the past for roles such as The Machinist and American Hustle and began the weight gain process for Ferrari he felt necessary, but couldn’t safely be ready in time for Spring, 2016.”
Christian was set to play Enzo Ferrari, the famed car maker. Although he has gained and lost weight for numerous roles over the span of his career, looks like he couldn’t lose the weight in time for this one!
The film is still moving forward and is looking to recast the role.
