Among Hollywood's most popular celebrities , Welsh-born Christian Bale is perhaps the most unlikely superstar. In a career spanning 22 years, he has mainly specialized in making small independent films featuring performances that challenge both his considerable acting chops as well as his amazing physical discipline.
But as the blockbuster success of the newest Batman film, The Dark Knight, has amply demonstrated, Mr. Bale has now taken his place in the very top tier of filmdom's pantheon, becoming a full-fledged mega-celeb with all the attendant baggage and craziness that woeful term implies.
I suppose we ought to be grateful that it's taken him this long because, as we all know, once that mega-star status is reached, we seldom get much more in the way of skin (vide Brad Pitt, for example).
Happily, Christian has never been reticent in the past about delivering the goods, both frontal and rear. Of the latter, films like Metroland, Royal Deceit and Captain Corelli's Mandolin are all excellent examples, but it is in the film version of Brett Easton Ellis's book American Psycho (2000) that Christian's newly pumped bod is put on full (and loving) display, as this startling scene with its long frontal shots makes oh so clear:
