    The producers of the film claim that Christian Bale dropped from about 173 pounds (78,4kg) in weight down to about 110 pounds (49,8kg) in weight to make this film. They also claim that Bale actually wanted to drop down to 100 pounds, but that they would not let him go below 120 out of fear that his health could be in too much danger if he did. His diet consisted of one can of tuna and an apple per day. His 63-pound (28,5kg) weight loss is said to be a record for any actor for a movie role.



    He regained the weight in time for his role in Batman Begins (2005).

    GH: "I gained about 30 pounds (13,6kg) for the role. I spent a lot of time in the gym, which I really didn’t like, so as we got closer to the film, I would use that anger I had about working out as part of the character. I wouldn’t go to the gym, but I’d tear up the set."

    The 27-year-old is estimated to have lost close to 40 lbs. (18,1kg) since last December, according to the Daily Mail.

    'It's not fun,' he said of his efforts. 'I wouldn't say it's the most fun endeavor I've ever took on in my life—but its important. And I'm enjoying it. If I eat something unhealthy now, I kind of feel a little weird and my body hurts.'

    23. Beyoncé Knowles
    Dreamgirls (2006)

    To play the super-svelte Deena Jones - modeled on naturally thin Diana Ross – for the film "Dreamgirls," Knowles lost 20 pounds (9,0kg), an idea that, she told reporters at the Cannes Film Festival premiere, was her own.

    "At the beginning [of filming], I was my normal weight," she said. "I actually gained a little bit, but then I lost 20 pounds when I went from young Deena to old Deena. I wanted it to be something more than just make-up and hair. I wanted to see the change."



    24. Taylor Lautner
    New Moon (2009)
    After months of speculation and rumors, director Chris Weitz and the novel's author, Stephenie Meyer, confirmed on her official website that Taylor Lautner would be reprising his role as Jacob Black. It was doubted as the filmmakers feared he would not be able to become fit enough in time. However, he was given the go-ahead after gaining 26 pounds (11,7kg) of muscle.

    27. Edward Norton
    American History X (1998)

    To portray a skinhead in the movie "American History X," Norton put on 35 pounds (15,8kg) of muscle on his normally slender frame.

    He has said he upped his protein intake to gain muscle. In an interview with Total Film, he said he spent about two and a half months getting into shape because he felt the character called for it.

    "I think he's a character who's armored himself against the pain he's experienced in his life with his rage," he said. "I wanted him to have physically manifested that sort of armoring as well. When you talk to those kids, that's what those tattoos and muscles are all about. In a lot of ways, it's about creating a shield or a psychic empowerment device to deal with the feeling of being marginal and insecure."


    28. Gary Oldman
    Sid & Nancy (1986)

    Oldman lost weight to play the emaciated Vicious by eating nothing but "steamed fish and lots of melon," but was briefly hospitalized when he lost too much weight.

    Will Smith trained for six hours a day in order to get himself a genuine boxer’s body, and put on a staggering 35lb (15.8kg) in order to get in line with Muhammad Ali’s 220lb (99.7kg).



    31. Sylvester Stallone
    Cop Land (1997)
    Stallone gained 40 pounds (18,1kg) to add realism to his portrayal of the police officer. He also was only paid SAG minimum wages. By the time that reshoots were required, he had lost the weight again.
