Christian "quick-change artist" Bale

I just came across this picture of "American Psycho" showing Christian Bale with a quite muscular body. And I wondered how he managed to get so slim for "The Machinist" which came out 4 years later?

I remember him saying "I believe in taking care of myself, in a
balanced diet, in a rigorous exercise routine. In the
morning, if my face is a little puffy, I'll put on an ice
pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand
now." And 4 years later he looks like close-to-death.


Seems like these were just some words in the script or he quickly changed his opinion about body and health. Do you know how he got so slim?

The MACHINIST was a crazy movie -- Christian Bale is a mad man.

How did he get so slim? I remember he said in an interview that he only ate an apple a day.

Image -- a few years after the Machinist, he did BATMAN BEGINS.

The quote you gave about how he takes care of his body is the character's line from American Psycho, not from Bale himself.

The apple a day is correct, but I believe he also had a can of tuna. He said he wouldn't do that to his body again, but he got awfully thin for Rescue Dawn.

Right after finishing The Machinist, he started bulking up for Batman Begins, which started filming just a few months later.

A machinist is a person who uses machine tools to make or modify parts, primarily metal parts, a process known as machining.
