For all of the Batman Begins fans out
there, and there should be a bunch, Christian Bale did a little sit-down
and discussed his roles in not only Batman
Begins and The
Batman Begins Interview
was able to catch up to Christian Bale and get him to say a few words about
going skinny, then becoming overweight, and then becoming in-shape again.
Bale also mentions a few words about the upcoming epic The New World,
and what it takes for him to prepare for a role. Here is a snippet from
Q: What weight are you right now?
Christian Bale: I've got no idea. I'm going to be doing
a Werner Herzog movie and I kind of have to lose a bit of weight for that.
Just a little but, so I'm just starting to diet now. I'm usually about 185.
Q: Speaking of weight, you said when you lost a lot of weight for
The Machinist you were very serene and calm. Once you started eating food
you got a little more antagonistic. How was your mood on this film when
you started bulking up?
Bale: You do get a lot of nervous energy. I think putting
weight on, unfortunately I had to put it on pretty fast, and it's not very
healthy doing that. That was when I felt bad. I did actually start to feel
I was putting my body under too much pressure because I put on 100 pounds
in five months. You get big mood swings, but not such a bad thing when you're
playing this darker version of Batman.
Bale goes on to talk about other projects [past
and present], and the possibility of a Batman vs Superman movie.
