CHRISTIAN Bale is set for another dramatic transformation!
The Oscar-winning Fighter star is currently in intense training ahead of May and the start of filming on Chris Nolan’s Dark Knight Rises.
“Christian prepares for every role as if it will be his last,” says a source close to the actor.
“But with Bruce Wayne and Batman he feels this is his last chance to really nail the role. He’s pouring over comic books and he’s started the kind of diet and exercise regime that is more in line with an Olympic athlete than an actor. He’s going to be in the best shape of his life by the time he gets the Bat suit on again.”
Bale recently admitted he wants to “piss on the shoes” of a critic who wrote about his “trademark weight loss” acting.
“To be honest, I find it laughable that it’s considered to be some f-cking gimmick — it’s so patronizing,” he said.
“For God’s sake, do people not understand what a pain it is to do? It’s as though it’s some comment about, ‘Oh it’s easy for him, because he’s done it a bunch of times’.
“It’s not easy, it’s not fun — it’s horrible. I would never pick to do that, but it’s a part that I like and he’s a welterweight and he’s a crackhead.
“I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen a welterweight with any fat on him — or a crackhead. So it’s just what you end up having to do. Somebody told me that somebody wrote something about my ”trademark weight loss’. I’d just like to piss on that guy’s shoes.”
