Brunette And Raggedy, Blake Lively Is Unrecognizable In Her New Film Role
January 17, 2018
Sometimes, actors are required to alter their appearances for roles in movies. These alterations may be purely prosthetic or may require actual physical transformations. For actor Christian Bale, the latter was the case.
To play the role of Irving Rosenfield in American Hustle, Bale had to put on a lot of extra weight. He says in total he grew by about 43 pounds, peaking at 228 pounds, all to fit into the role. And achieving this was no small feat.
Bale had to stuff himself with a lot of junk food. His diet consisted majorly of high-fat foods. Cheeseburgers (with lots of cheese), doughnuts, and soda were big on his diet. He also had to shave his head and learn a slouch.
