Christian Bale is no stranger to changing his body for a role. The actor once lost sixty pounds for the movie The Machinist, he pumped it up for Batman Begins, and lost weight again for The Fighter. Well, he is at it again, but this time Christian gained forty-three pounds for his role as conman Irving Rosenfeld in American Hustle. He opened up to People magazine about how he gained the weight, saying "I ate lots of doughnuts, a whole lot of cheeseburgers and whatever I could get my hands on. I literally ate everything that came my way."
