But now, this Oscar-winning actor is letting his good-looks go to the dogs — including, sadly, his hairline.
So, who is it?
It’s Christian Bale!
Okay, fine. He’s just in character for his role in David O. Russell’s latest drama, about the FBI’s Abscam sting operation that led to the conviction of multiple US Congressmen in the ’70s.
The film, which reteams Bale with O. Russell for the first time since The Fighter, co-stars Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner.
The official synopsis as follows:
The Untitled David O. Russell Project is based on the true story of a notorious financial con artist (Bale) and his mistress/partner in crime (Adams), who were forced to work with an out of control federal agent (Cooper) to turn the tables on other con artists, mobsters, and politicians. At the epicenter of the entire tale, is the passionate and volatile leader of the New Jersey state assembly (Renner) who is also the local hero and mayor of impoverished Camden.
Bale, of course, is notorious for shape-shifting his body for a movie; he famously lost a crap-ton of weight for his roles in The Machinist and The Fighter, and also bulked up considerably to play Batman in the Dark Knight trilogy.
