We always knew proofreading mattered!
When Christian Bale signed on to be in The Machinist, he wasn't supposed to get THAT skinny!
In fact, the 6'2" actor did it all because of a little editorial oversight.
Co-star Michael Ironside recently explained what happened, saying:
Batman, a hero in the movies AND real life!
Christian Bale's amazing random-acts-of-kindness (remember this and this??) have a new member: taking a photo with writing all over his face to support a man with cancer.
The phrase reads “Dan’s Our Man,” and while this gesture might seem odd,
We'll love Jennifer Lawrence until the end of time, but sometimes the people we love will say some unsavory things in their lifetime.
Jennifer Lawrence is now one of those people.
Specifically, she was talking about Christian Bale and the weight he had to gain for American Hustle (which won a Golden Globe last night!), and having to make out with him in that heavier state.
Here's what she said:
Christian Bale uses his weight to get into roles so often that we might start thinking that's his true talent instead of the whole acting thing — but then we remember he's Christian Bale and that he's SUPER RAD at acting and we stop questioning him!
Seriously though, if you talk about tailoring weight to roles, Christian is the first actor to pop in your head! He lost SIXTY pounds for the Machinist, got ripped for Batman, then dropped it all again for the Fighter.
For American Hustle he GAINED 43 pounds! And here's how he did it:
Matthew McConaughey has undergone one of those crazy weight loss plans for a role that only so many actors have ever done.
Christian Bale and, most recently, Anne Hathaway come to mind.
It's just crazy to see a guy who was so muscular and already had so little fat, drop a whopping 38-pounds!!
Even though he's looking dangerously skinny nowadays, he says that he's still healthy!
Now THIS is how you stay calm, cool, and collected on set!
Check out this pic of actress Freida Pinto busting out the yoga moves in between takes!
She's currently filming her new moving called Knight of Cups, which is due out next year.
That window is framing her perfectly!! So gorgeous!
And did we mention Christian Bale is in the movie too??
Not too bad, Freida!
