Oh hey look, it’s Christian Bale doing his Christian Bale “I have many weights but only one grim mode” thing. The picture above is a spy shot from the set of The Fighter, the movie that was once a Darren Aronofsky film but is now being directed by David O. Russell. Co-Starring Mark Wahlberg, the film features Bale as a Boston Irish boxer turned drug addict.
Bale has obviously lost a bunch of weight and has thinned his hair; the guy was looking gaunt when I interviewed him for Terminator Salvation, but this is ridiculous.
O. Russell and Bale on a set together? Jesus, I hope someone is rolling tape on that inevitable battle royale.
