When it comes to celebrity transformations, Christian Bale takes the cake (and pie). The actor, who has famously gained and lost drastic amounts of weight for various roles over the years, most recently gained 40 pounds to portray former Vice President Dick Cheney in the upcoming film “Backseat.”
It’s easy to assume that an actor who has been tasked with putting on weight for a film does so purely by eating junk food and ceasing exercise. In fact, various actors have admitted to just that. Bale told reporters at the Toronto International Film Festival in September that he’d been “eating a lot of pies.” When Aaron Eckhart gained 40 pounds for his role in 2016′s “Bleed for This,” he told HuffPost he consumed lots of pepperoni pizza.
