CHRISTAN BALE DOESN’T PLAN OR STRATEGISE ABOUT HIS CA­REER

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Academy Award-win­ning ac­tor Chris­tian Bale, who is known for un­der­go­ing phys­i­cal trans­for­ma­tions for his per­for­mances, says he likes chaos.

He has de­liv­ered de­mand­ing per­for­mances — whether it was his skele­tal frame in The Ma­chin­ist (2004) or the bulked up built in The Dark Knight Rises (2012), the men­tally ex­haust­ing role of a sadis­tic psy­chopath and a de­ranged se­rial killer in Amer­i­can Psy­cho (2000) or as Dick Cheney in Vice (2018), where he has bulked up and tried pros­thet­ics.

Asked if there is any­thing else he aspires to do, Bale said, “I have never had a plan or a strat­egy. I like chaos. So, I wait to see what hap­pens next.”

Bale scored a Best Ac­tor in a Mo­tion Picture, Mu­si­cal or Com­edy vic­tory at Golden Globes 2019 for his performance as for­mer US vice pres­i­dent Dick Cheney in Vice. He is also nom­i­nated in BAFTA for the same.
