Mark Wahlberg is worried about Christian Bale’s health. The two are starring in a movie called The Fighter and it required Bale to lose 30 pounds. However, that isn’t what concerns Mark…it’s the way that Bale goes about his life right now!
More pictures of Christian after the skip…
Christian has taken off weight and put it on for other roles. Losing and gaining weight quickly is hard on the body and Mark has taken notice. From the Aurora Sentinel:
Friends of actor Christian Bale – such as his current co-star Mark Wahlberg – are worried that Bale’s infamous penchant for losing and gaining tremendous amounts of weight in order to conform to his idea of what a character should look like, is downright dangerous.
Bale is on another losing streak, having dropped about 30 pounds to play a drug addict in “The Fighter.” He’s eating nothing but melons, some other fruits and water. He looks like death. You remember that Bale lost even more, becoming positively corpse-like for his role as the insomniac in “The Machinist.” Then he bulks up again – hours straining in the gym – for one of the Batman movies. Then down again.
It is rumored that Bale is only drinking water and eating fruit. Plus, he’s working out to burn extra calories to keep the weight off. Scary. How soon is this movie done filming so Christian can get a steak?
