The plot will be circled around the Hollywood actor, whose transformations impress and scary, whose life is devoted to filming, whose roles are perfect to the last detail. World, meet Christian Bale!
What were things at the beginning? He proved to be a good actor in “Reign on Fire”, which was produced in 2002, presenting him to be strong and serious and demanding. His weight was around 184 pounds (83 kilos).
A thriller, full of action and emotions, is perfect for challenge-lovers. The main character is not afraid of difficulties, so that’s the reason he captures the people’ eye.
He could have boasted with the big muscles and the attractive body. But this was not for a long time. Let us see what the next year brought.
The second essential role, which was featured by psycho aspects and demanded the really hard changes was in “Machinist”, which was released in 2004. What a surprise it was to fans and critics to see him in that unordinary and art house way.
It seems he dropped a half of a body – the most frequent hearing, when people see Christian on the screen in this film. His weight was around 122 pounds, which is equal to 55 kilos, as he lost everything, which was not necessary for the role. The bones were seeable; the eyes were big and dark.
Afterwards, the actor found the health problems, which are connected with the destroyed metabolism. It’s all because he ate nothing. His special own diet includes a can of tune and one apple per day.
It took him several months for the recovery, making him the name of all-experienced actor, who can fulfill everything if only it is needed.
Don’t think it was over for him to change so much for the role. The year 2005 was unpredictable for the audience, as “The Batman begins” was introduced to public on the big screens.
Let’s see how he coped with the task. Here he pretends to be strong as previously, full of energy and power to defeat evil.
The preparation process included Christian working out hard in the gym, gaining muscles. As also there are some special computer and unreal effects presented, the movie is featured by the perfect play of the leading actors.
His weight was nearly 191 pounds (86 kilos), which was enough to bring confidence in oneself to the audience.
The years in between are mostly characterized by many on-screen productions, such as “The Prestige”, “Rescue Dawn”, Terminator Salvation” and other TV-running programs, which didn’t need a great change.
What the next steps were? 2010 is mostly associated with “The Fighter”, the best description for which is drama, thriller, action. The loss of weight was considerable, as it was noticed Christian’s weight was around 146 pounds (66 kilos). It, of course, cannot be compared to “The Machinist”, however t demanded much effort.
The look was also changed: except of being slim enough, his hairstyle seemed to be different as also the clothes line was under transformation.
What did the further years bring? In 2012 one important event occurred – the film “The Dark Knight Rises” was released, finding a huge success among fans and critics.

It demanded the physical turn, that’s why the actor was working on the body out in the gym, running much and so on. He also included in the food regime some proteins, which helped much in growing the mass.
Christian also put on some kilos, to make the more influential effect on public. His weight was correlated with the strong body, being around 191 pounds (86 kilos). Hopefully, there were no health concerns, as there were some during the extra slimming.
For movie “Vice“ (2018) Christian also did impossible, he transformed to Dick Cheney and you can be forgiven for not recognising him. Still this time the best Hollywood prosthetic and makeup artists helped him fully step into Cheney’s skin. They created more than 100 pieces of encapsulated silicone.
To sum up, it may be said that everything is in your hands. If you need a change – do it and don’t hesitate. If somebody needs a change, help him. Try to be unusual and strange, try to be yourself, because there is only one life you are given.
