Jennifer Lawrence Called Christian Bale "Fatman" — Read Her Whole Comment HERE!

jennifer lawrence christian bale fatman american hustle

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:

"I finally get to make out with Christian Bale and he's a really fat guy. … He's Fatman, not Batman."

Saying something like this is even more a bummer coming from someone who champions a realistic look at bodies in Hollywood, instead of the fat-shaming, skinny-rewarding system that's in place.

While it's undeniably true that Christian had to gain weight to look overweight for the role, and that it was super different than being buff Batman, it was a pretty unnecessary comment! Sure, she may have been joking, but it's still a bit shocking coming from her!

Just imagine had this statement been said the other way around!

While worse things have been said, we really can't help feel a bit disappointed in her. We're sure she'll redeem herself, though!

    This isn't even a direct quote. The source is US Weekly (very reliable source wow yeah) and apparently ”they heard the director saying that he remembered Jennifer Lawrence saying while they were filming…” like come on.

    FYI, Christian Bale has referred to himself as ”Fatman” during the promotion of the movie and it apparently became a running joke bewteen the cast and crew, so yeah…

    oh God it was just a joke. You are so f***ed up. I hope you burn in hell for making up such stories.

    Not a fan of Jennifer Lawrence (the most over-rated actress to ever walk the face of the Earth) but she was obviously joking.
    And it was much less hurtful than what those two stupid hostesses said to Matt Damon.
    That was in real poor taste.
    And I was glad when he rubbed it in their faces.

    Seriously?! You sure are trying to get a lot of people into useless feuds lately, its kind out of control. This site is quickly getting back that off-putting vibe it use to have when you use to "out" people for no-good reason…

    Can't blame her, she has been used to Bradley, fuck, isn't he perfect? (perfect toned lean muscles, right amoun of hair on the chest, amazing hands…….), Christian is just a bully sex meat compared. I dont think there is anything wrong with what she said because it was not Christian's usual level of fitness, and that's what she said, her comments were not at all offensive, I am sure even Christian laughed about it (back when he was a pig!)

    Hey… how about the fact that The Joker always called Batman 'Fatman' in comics? She likes to use obscure references like that (you know, her "I beat Meryl!" thing? etc?).



  13. 13

    Oh man this is good. She said something that was a joke between the co-stars. Guess people aren't allowed to make jokes anymore. I think she's a little overrated but if this is the worse thing that she has said then I think she's doing okay.
    Also, you've said things that are 100x worse so don't even act like you are so shocked and it hurt your innocent ears to hear it.

    apparently I'm the only one that doesn't like this actress.

    Omg get over it…Why do gay men take shit so seriously and to the heart? Really? She was speaking of a co-star who clearly is NOT upset over her calling him that, so why the hell should you care? Hey, guys, are you all gonna go out and have eating disorders now that Jennifer Lawrence called Christian Bale fat? Nope, didn't think so. She's just a silly type of girl and how she said it wasn't offensive at all..

    Re: Catty – Because you clearly don't know a sincere person when you see one.

    Re: Catty – Go get some level of fame and let haters hate on you. Okay? Good.

    Is she the same actress who said that the word FAT should be banned? She sounds like a hypocrite, even if she was joking. I read somewhere that she gets highly offended about fat jokes about herself. I wonder if she thinks that it is wrong to call a woman fat, but not a man.
