We’re all a bit image-conscious now, but the pressure put on celebrities to maintain their physique is insane. Many well-known actors and media personalities have undergone major weight changes, some through surgery and some the old-fashioned way, with dieting and exercise. These ten celebs dropped impossible-seeming poundage.
10. Christian Bale
To prepare for his role as a drug addict retired boxer in the 2004 movie The Machinist, Christian Bale lost a jaw-dropping sixty pounds. The 5’6 screenwriter had originally written the character as having his own dimensions, but six-foot Bale insisted on trying to hit the target 122lbs despite an offer to make it a higher number. After filming, he binge ate pizza and ice cream to put the weight back on for Batman: Begins, which started filming six weeks later.
