Christian Bale is shockingly thin! Bale has been a master of reinvention when it comes to transforming his body for his various movie roles, but the sight of the gaunt Welsh actor Monday afternoon on set of “The Fighter” raises suspicions as to the nature of his health.

Though Bale is playing boxer-turned trainer-turned-drug addict Dickie Eklund in the film, his hollowed features seem extreme for a man who bulked up to play the muscly caped crusader in last year’s Batman. Bale is a notorious method actor and lost a staggering 63 pounds for the film The Machinist only to regain it all back and then some for the first Batman installment.

Hope his metabolism and ultimately his health isn’t being adversely affected by the excessive weight fluctuation.
