Thanks for that Karen! I couldn't believe that was Christian Bale!

I've heard Christian Bale is getting lots of buzz for playing Dick Cheney in VICE I've always been a big fan of his and admired his unique ability to physically/emotionally transform for strikingly different roles in such short spaces of time. I think Best Actor win is long overdue for him. It feels criminal that he wasn't nominated for American Psycho (I think it was a simple case of The Academy disrespecting the horror genre. )

^^ Have you seen Christian as Dick? He's unrecognizable! Almost like Gary Oldman was as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.

I've seen pictures

Incredible transformation. Amazing how Christian commits to roles by fully embodying these people in both an emotional and physical way.

Although, I often worry about his health with all these weight gains/losses of his

^^ I agree about the strain his drastic weight changes can cause, but I think they have professionals to help them lower or higher their weight, muscle mass, so it's done in the safest way they can.

There should be some type of special award created for Christian in relation to his body transformations for movies It's just so unique, how far he's willing to take it.

^^ The Bale award for physical transformation!

Johnny Depp is the top pick for that one for me. Yes Christian has changed his weight a lot but Depp has had so many looks, he's unrecognizable in some!

My two favorite Actors of all time, other than Al Pacino.

Johnny deserved an Oscar nod for EDWARD SCISSORHANDS. It annoys me that people in recent years have been nominated for a lot less than the variety he put into that role.

if he can survive it'll be great. he goes so extreme. The Machinist would have been just as good if he didn't almost kill himself.

Would it, though? I totally agree that he pushes the boundaries to worrisome levels, but I think the realism of his extremely thin body shape in that movie really gave it the shock factor that it needed.

I agree. Some are getting nods for acting when I think, what was so special about that?

He was so scary skinny, the first time I saw it I honestly wondered if there had been any CGI done on him.
