Christian Bale (for ‘Vice)
Christian Bale has transformed for many roles in his career, none of his previous transformations have been quite like the one he did for Vice, the Adam McKay-directed biopic of former Vice President Dick Cheney. For this role, Bale added more than 40lbs to his usually athletic frame. But what made it different was how he did it.
“I had never before gone to a doctor or a nutritionist about gaining or losing weight for my roles,” Bale told Star2.com. “But eventually that caught up with me. So, finally for Vice, I decided that maybe somebody knows better than I do; so I went to somebody and they managed to get me up a good 40lbs. It’s never healthy to put on that amount of weight in a short amount of time, but I did it in the healthiest manner.”
