Christian Bale has gained weight for a new film.

The Dark Knight star Christian Bale has drastically put on and shed weight several times for his films in the past and he has done it once again. The actor was spotted looking chubbier than ever as he prepares for an upcoming movie.

The 43-year-old was clicked by the paparazzi while on an errand run in Los Angeles last week. He will play former US vice president Dick Cheney in an upcoming biopic by Adam McKay.

Not much of a resemblance, is there?

Christian was seen in a simple grey shirt with shorts, sporting a buzz cut and a clean shaven look.

Christian is well known for putting his body through extreme routines to gain weight or lose it for movie roles. The most drastic perhaps was when he lost 28kgs for his role as an insomniac in The Machinist. We was merely 54kgs during the shooting.
