Acting is not everybody’s cup of tea as it takes so much unseen hard work that’s both physical and mental. They take on really tough roles and dedicate their lives to deliver fantastic acting. There’s so much they do and so many challenges they face in order to entertain us and contribute to great cinema, that we don’t give them enough credit for it. One such brilliant actor is Christian Bale. He has really outdone himself with every intense body transformation he undertakes. He’s one of the few actors who takes his roles very seriously and believes in method acting more than makeup and VFX. His recent transformation in ‘Vice‘ where he plays Dick Cheney was absolutely jaw-dropping. And here are some of the most mind-blowing transformations he’s taken on.

1. Vice (2018)

2. American Psycho (2000)

3. The Machinist (2011)

4. Rescue Dawn (2006)

5. Batman Begins (2005)

6. American Hustle (2013)

7. The Fighter (2010)

"If we're right, people lose homes. People lose jobs. People lose retirement savings, people lose pensions. You know what I hate about fucking banking? It reduces people to numbers. Here's a number – every 1% unemployment goes up, 40,000 people die, did you know that?" The Big Short, dir. Adam McKay, 2015. This film is based on a true story and that's the main reason why it's so shocking. If it wasn't a real story, the plot would be absurd. But it's real. It's true. It has happened, and is still affecting some people. This film is weird and funny and complicated and simple, it mixes financial terms with daily life, big bankers with common people. It's so strange and yet so important, and I suggest you all watch it, because it's our real, recent history, and we don't want it to happen again. "I have a feeling in a few years people are going to be doing what they always do when the economy tanks. They will be blaming immigrants and poor people." #TheBigShort #AdamMcKay #ChristianBale #RyanGosling #BradPitt #SteveCarell #FinnWittrock #JohnMagaro #JeremyStrong #RafeSpall #HamishLinklater #MargotRobbie #AnthonyBourdain #SelenaGomez #cinema #history #cinematography #film #movie #lovecinema
