It seems to become a ‘fashion' that when actors/actresses drastically change their look for the movie, they will get success. Nicole has modified her nose for The Hour . Charlize Theron has increased her weight and have herself an ugly custume in Monster . Now comes the upcoming Batman Christian Bale, who lost his weight drastically in the movie The Machinist . Actually I did not see much of his movie, but I love his performance in Equilibrium . And I'm quite pleased when they annouced him to be the next batman. But before the Batman, he has made a very great sacrifice for this movie:
The producers of the film claim that Christian Bale dropped from about 190 pounds in weight down to about 130 pounds in weight to make this film. They also claim that Bale actually wanted to drop down to 110 pounds, but that they would not let him go below 130 out of fear that his health could be in too much danger if he did. His diet consisted of one can of tuna and an apple per day. His 63 pound weight loss is said to be a record for any actor for a movie role.
Just look at The Making of The Machinist and you will see how skinny he was…….OMG~~
