YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHAT CHRISTIAN BALE DID TO LOOK LIKE DICK CHENEY

Here’s a body transformation that not even Robert DeNiro has ever attempted. Not only did Christian Bale pack on lots of pounds for his role as Vice President Dick Cheney in Backseat, but he went the extra mile by bleaching his eyebrows and sculpting his NECK. According to The Hollywood Reporter, after gaining weight, Bale felt his neck wasn’t thick enough so he hired a trainer to bulk up ONLY his neck muscles, working out in the gym. The movie has started filming (above) and we never would have recognized Bale.

CHRISTIAN BALE IS A WHOLE NEW PERSON

We’re betting Christian Bale, 43, can go just about anywhere these days without being recognized since he gained all that weight to play the most powerful Vice President in American history (who knew?) Dick Cheney. The bleached eyebrows also change his appearance. Cheney was probably flattered when he heard the handsome Bale was set to play him in “Backseat” – at least until all the discussion about weight gain. Above, Christian took his cute son Joseph to play in a Brentwood park.

CHRISTIAN BALE IS THE ONLY CHOICE TO PLAY STEVE JOBS

8589130474059-chribalecut

We agree with director David Fincher – only Christian Bale should play Steve Jobs in a biography of the complicated tech genius. Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) has researched and written the script. Fincher says the ONLY way he will direct the movie is if Bale plays the part, and the actor hasn’t even been approached yet. We can’t imagine him turning it down, in spite of the fact that Ashton Kutcher’s movie about Jobs was not successful. This new and dynamic combination of talent might make all the difference. Steve Jobs has not been forgotten.

WHO PLAYS FAT AND BALD BETTER – TOM CRUISE OR CHRISTIAN BALE?

tombalebald

Tom Cruise DID play a fat, balding Jewish studio executive named Les Grossman in Tropic Thunder long before Christian Bale assumed the role of the eerily similar Irving Rosenfeld in American Hustle. Five years ago, in fact. Tom’s character Les was exceedingly vulgar, and besides wearing a fat suit and bald cap, Cruise had chest hair glued under the gold chains revealed by his unbuttoned shirt. Christian actually GAINED the extra weight and shaved his own hair for the comb-over. He went the extra mile because he had the leading role in HIS movie and Cruise’s part was a cameo. But the transformation brought them both a lot of favorable attention so they made smart choices.

CHRISTIAN BALE ISN’T KIDDING ABOUT GETTING INTO CHARACTER

Having recently seen Christian Bale looking gaunt in “Out of the Furnace,” we were floored by this photo of him in his soon to be released movie “American Hustle.” In two months he ate enough cheeseburgers to gain forty pounds. That, and shaving off his hair into a greasy comb-over, turned him into a very unappealing 1970’s con-man. Ever since Robert De Niro gained all that weight to play Jake La Motta in “Raging Bull,” younger actors have been following in his footsteps, with visions of Oscars dancing in their heads. Somehow we can’t picture Brad Pitt ever doing that.

CURIOUS CITY DWELLERS BUTT INTO BATMAN MOVIE FILMING

We had to laugh when we heard this story about the filming of next Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises” with Christian Bale. According to Merle Ginsberg at The Hollywood Reporter, a huge location shoot was set up in downtown LA and residents are accustomed to shoots, so they rarely pay attention. But this scene featured the appearance of the futuristic Bat-copter that zigzagged through “Gotham City” rigged up on cables. The outrageous craft, flying low, attracted all kinds of attention and curious apartment dwellers stuck their heads out the window to gape. Producers realized it would be costly to remove all those heads in post-production and actually considered asking people to keep their heads inside! THAT notion didn’t fly, so the looky-loos will have to be deleted later. (Above, Batman in another hopped-up vehicle)

A STAR IS BORN: BEYONCE HAS MET HER MATCH IN CHRISTIAN BALE

We imagine Clint Eastwood wasn’t thrilled to hear about Beyonce’s pregnancy because he hoped to start filming their movie “A Star Is Born” in February. Odds are it will be delayed. Clint really wanted Leonardo DiCaprio to play the male lead but he passed on the part. Now we hear Eastwood has hired Christian Bale to play the celebrity husband who becomes emasculated as his wife’s popularity rises and his own eclipses. We’re thinking Bale will bring QUITE a different edge to the character. This will be the fourth remake of the movie – in the 1974 version, Elvis Presley was desperate to play the role opposite Barbra Streisand – he felt it would change his career. But Colonel Parker nixed the idea.

CHRISTIAN BALE IS PUTTING ON A HAPPY FACE

Terminator Salvation beaten at the boxoffice by Night at the Museum 2, but Christian’s costar in this movie stole the show just like Heath Ledger did in The Dark Knight. Realistically, Australian actor Sam Worthington doesn’t match the charisma of Heath, but he did manage to stand out next to Christian in Terminator and he’s getting lots of attention. Christian’s characters often seem to be terse and angry, while his costars reveal more personality. Bale’s popularity took a dive after that tantrum tape appeared online. Having Sam Worthington steal his thunder doesn’t help.

MAYBE CHRISTIAN BALE'S MOTHER AND SISTER WERE TELLING THE TRUTH

After hearing his rant all over the internet, isn’t it nice to see a photograph of Christian Bale before he developed that deadly temper? This is an undated photo (judging by the hair we’re guessing the 80’s) of Christian and his mother Jenny and his sister Louise in happier times. That’s before they had that fight in a London hotel room before the “Dark Knight” premier and his sister and mother told police that Christian “assaulted” them. Now his relatives have the last laugh because the people who doubted their story are starting to believe them.

CHRISTIAN BALE’S MOTHER COULD MAKE A KILLING

It looks like Christian Bale’s mother Jenny could end up with more money than she asked her wealthy son for! According to the British papers, Bale’s mother visited him at his London hotel before the Dark Knight premier and asked for $200,000 and her son balked. This supposedly ignited the argument that led to the dramatic police report. Christopher and his mother haven’t been close since his parents separated and he chose to live with his father in LA, while his mother stayed in England. Interestingly, his father later married one of our heroes, Gloria Steinem and died in 2003. Anyway, Jenny has been bombarded with big money offers to tell her story, so she could end up with EVEN MORE than she asked for!

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
