Christian Bale's daughter teased him


Christian Bale's daughter teased him for putting on weight. The Oscar-winning actor, who previously lost 60 pounds (27 kg) to appear emaciated in The Machinist in 2004, gained 43 pounds (19,5 kg) to play a con artist in American Hustle and admitted his daughter, Emmeline (8), found it "amusing".

'I literally ate anything that came my way.'

He told, "She found it funny, [me] having a big old gut and a bald head. She would slap it and tease me. She had lots of fun and found it amusing."

But Christian, who also bulked up for Batman Begins and slimmed down for The Fighter, insisted his wife, Sibi Blazic, is always very supportive of his physical transformations for film roles.

He said, "She's seen me in many different, hideous guises, and she tolerates me no matter how I look. I'm grateful to have a very patient and loving wife."

The 39-year-old British star gorged on junk food to gain weight and is still trying to slim down since he finished filming the movie in May.

He said, "I ate lots of doughnuts, a whole lot of cheeseburgers and whatever I could get my hands on. I literally ate anything that came my way. I was about 185 [84 kg] and went up to 228 [103 kg]. I'm still working it off."
