Check out Batman star's drastic transformation for upcoming movie 'Backseat'

Hollywood actor Christian Bale, who is known for making drastic physical transformations for his movies, has once again stunned everyone with his look for his upcoming movie 'Backseat'.

The actor, 43, who regularly undergoes dramatic weight transformations for roles, will play George W. Bush's second-in-command for the upcoming movie Backseat, reports The Independent.

Appearing at a Beverly Hills press conference for 'Hostiles', Bale sported a shaven head and was much bigger than before.

When asked how he managed to put on so much of weight, Bale, who was present at the Toronto Film Festival, said, "I've just been eating a lot of pies."

Bale's look to play Cheney is a far cry from the emaciated figure he had in 2004's 'The Machinist', when he weighed in at just 120 lbs. It was the first role where the actor drastically altered his body, and he has made a habit of it ever since.

He lost and added 30 lbs of muscle to play 'Batman' in 2005. He lost weight again for 'The Fighter' in 2010 and gained a lot of weight for 2013's 'American Hustle'.

The movie sees Bale reunite with 'The Big Short' director Adam McKay and actor Steve Carell, who will play Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

'Backseat' also stars Amy Adams as Lynne Cheney, while Sam Rockwell and Bill Pullman will play George W. Bush and Nelson Rockefeller.
