Christian Bale’s portrayal of Trevor Reznik, a factory worker riddled with psychological problems in the 2005 thriller The Machinist, gets more attention than all of his roles combined.

He used this extremely calorie-sparse diet to ditch the weight from his previous role in 2000’s American Psycho.
Now, the spartan diet serves little more than a reminder of the effect of a low-calorie diet to the degree that it can cause a lot of stress on the body. In fact, Bale’s method of ‘binge-eating and weightlifting’ for 2015’s Batman Begins sounds much more approachable.
