If you have Aamir Khan weighing 97 kgs to play an older Mahavir Phogat for the movie Dangal and then shape-shifting to a fitter 67 kgs younger one, Christian Bale made drastic body transformations mainstream in Hollywood much longer ago. Going lean and even horrifyingly weak for movies like American Psycho (2000) and the Machinist (2004) to getting us hooked on to his fit physique in the Batman trilogy, Bale has been one of the few actors who have been, undoubtedly, meticulous about getting into the skin of his characters. Now, as he preps for playing the role of Dick Cheney in the upcoming biopic ‘Backseat’, he has put on weight and gone bald.

Pictures of Bale smiling at and posing for the camera has left Internet users berserk, with many going to town coming up with funny captions for the pictures. Seemingly, the 43-year-old’s latest pictures seem to remind people of a lot of others, including the “the kind of guy who will give you unwanted advice when you’re playing a fruit machine,” “that bloke in the pub that clears the empty glasses even tho he doesn’t work there,” among others.
