Christian Bale is sporting a new look these days, and while he's the kind of actor who will lose massive amounts of weight for a role--think "The Machinist", for which he lost 63 pounds--that doesn't mean we're used to his sudden changes.
Bale was spotted coming through LAX with his family recently and was almost unrecognizable with his shaved head and heavier physique. The actor has been filming scenes for the upcoming film "American Hustle", which also stars Amy Adams and Robert De Niro.
The 39-year old has undergone several bodily changes over the years and will do pretty much anything necessary for the role, including gaining and losing weight rapidly and putting on lean muscle for films like "The Dark Knight". He's never speculated much on the health consequences for the extremes he goes to, however, saying of his weight loss for "The Machinist", "I had what could be called a kind of stupid feeling of invincibility, like, 'Oh I can do it. I can manage it.' "
