British-born boy toy Christian Bale began his career as a child actor, starring in the 1987 Steven Spielberg flick Empire of the Sun before putting on a floppy hat for the 1992 Disney musical Newsies. Seven years later, Christian was all grown up and made us grow out with his performance as hard-bodied and frequently shirtless serial killer Patrick Bateman in American Psycho. He even gives us a look at his bite-able bare butt. When he says, “Don’t just look at it, eat it!” we’re happy to comply.
Bale played yet another wealthy and privileged murderer in the 2000 crime drama Shaft. Unfortunately Christian’s shaft remains out of view. In 2004’s Machinist, he traded in his lean physique for an emaciated one when he starved himself and lost 63 pounds for the part. Hey, Christian, those aren’t the kind of bones we want to see from you!
Luckily he packed on the muscle again for his career-defining role as Batman in the Christopher Nolan trilogy of Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008), and the Dark Knight Rises (2012). Only a joker wouldn't want to see more of Bale!
