Christian Bale's barely believable transformation into Dick Cheney has become an unstoppable meme

“He looks like the kind of guy who will give you unwanted advice when you’re playing a fruit machine.”

THROUGHOUT HIS CAREER, Christian Bale has been well-known for his radical (and potentially dangerous) body transformations for roles – like when he dropped four stone for his part in The Machinist.

His latest transformation was revealed this week when photos from the set of a new Dick Cheney biopic called Backseat – where Bale plays the former US Vice President – came out.

The images were discovered by Lights, Camera, Podcast on Twitter and people can’t believe it’s actually Christian Bale

Specifically, this pose has turned into an unstoppable meme

There’s just something about that facial expression

At a press conference this week, Bale explained how he managed to transform so completely:

I’ve just been eating a lot of pies.

They need to re-shoot The Dark Knight immediately

He looks like anyone but Christian Bale

Maybe he’s not playing Dick Cheney after all? Everyone has a theory

At some stage soon, someone is going to have to sit down and explain to him that Hollywood are pretty good with prosthetics

This might not be necessary any more, Christian.
