The Film Fatale

Scroll to Info & Navigation

The producers of The Machinist claim that Christian Bale dropped from about 173 pounds in weight down to about 110 pounds to make this film. They also claim that Bale actually wanted to drop down to 100 pounds, but that they would not let him go below 120 out of fear that his health could be in too much danger if he did. His diet consisted of one can of tuna and an apple per day. He also took up smoking to help curb his appetite. His 63-pound weight loss is said to be a record for any actor for a movie role. Oddly enough, Bale claimed that he actually enjoyed losing so much weight, oftentimes finding himself in a euphoric state due to the extreme condition he subjected himself to (x).
