Christian Bale Walks a Thin Line

7/14/2009 2:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Christian Bale is now frail.

media_removed_250.jpg
The 35-year-old -- who famously dropped 63 lbs for his role in "The Machinist" and then quickly bulked up for "Batman Begins" -- was spotted in Boston on Monday, once again working the heroin chic gaunt look to play drug addicted boxer Dicky Eklund in his latest film.

Hopefully an apple a day keeps the cinematographer away ... from walking into his scene.

While he looks like an emaciated drug addict... they should put him in MJ makeup and shoot The Story Of MJ-- His Final Days...
Good use of Bale's starvation diet.

He also got really skinny for the 2006 movie "Rescue Dawn." I wonder if he will suffer any health consequences from all of the weight changes and starvation diets.

All bow to the great actor.
Dennis Quaid did a better job losing for Doc Holliday role and wasn't an ass #&*# while doing it.

As a Lowell native, I cannot wait for The Fighter to be released. Micky Ward's story needs to be told. RIP Arturo Gatti!

Isn't that really bad for a person's heart? Gaining and losing weight like that?

I'm no doctor.... but I do read TMZ!

He is losing the weight and had his hair thinned for the role in this movie. I saw Public Enemies last weekend and I think he did a better job that Depp. I am becoming a fan of this guy,
