From a child star, he has grown to a megastar winning Oscar awards. His flair for getting easily into the shoes of defined roles like Bruce Wayne in 'The Dark Knight' and John Connor in 'Terminator Salvation' or a bewildering array of roles like a crazy yuppy, a completely drugged and confused boxer or a chronic insomniac shot him to fame and stardom. Besides being ranked as one of the 100 sexiest men in movies, he has created his own signature and enigma being thoroughly male and not getting into romantic roles either on screen or off. He is one of the very few hollywood stars who is a one woman man and whose name doesn't appear much in gossip columns. He has also earned a name for committing completely to his role. This has seen him go on crash diets for the movie 'The Machinist' and crazy hairstyles in 'The Fighter' to extreme tanning for his role in 'American psycho'.   His salary for 'The Dark Knight' in 2008 was $10,000,000. His net worth is approximately $60 million. Christian Bale insists that all hollywood stars are not wealthy and that he was on the verge of financial ruin in 2003 and took up a film role just to keep his head above water. He disclosed this in a special interview with the magazine 'Details'. He shared ownership with a house in Manhattan Beach that was later sold.   Though Christian Bale is easily in the top ranking bracket with a fantastic salary, he seems to lead a quiet lifestyle with his wife, daughter and pets in California. Not letting the media into his private life, Chris seems to spend his time working hard on his roles and various organizations committed to social causes. Most of them are causes related to animals or children like Ark Trust, Greenpeace, World Wildlife Foundation, Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, Redwings Sanctuary and Happy Child Mission. Christian Bale is a very modest star who does not intend changing his lifestyle because he is a celebrity. He lives in a simple one-bedroom house, does not even have a cell phone, goes to the supermarket for shopping and owns an old black BMW 325i car which fans get irritated with. He is so uninterested in leading a lavish lifestyle, that he even turned down staying in a luxury villa while shooting for 'Public Enemies' says director Michael Mann.   A very talented and fanatically committed actor who learnt dancing and martial arts, Bale went to the point of losing nearly 63 kgs to enact the role in The Machinist perfectly. For this he was living on apples, lattes, salads and chewing gum. He picked up accents very easily and won over 4000 other auditions for Steven Spielberg's 'Empire of the sun when he was 13 years old and won a citation for the best performance. He is also a very good horseman, an avid reader and loves playing video games like Super Mario. A brilliant and very independent artist who has almost become a cult figure attracting even kids, ever since he started the Batman series. His fans call themselves 'Baleheads'. He is a one- woman man, married to Sibi Blazic and having a daughter Emmaline born on 27th March 2005. He is an animal activist who was a vegan for nearly 20 years. He lives with his family in California and being an animal lover has 2 dogs and 3 cats which were all strays.

Quotes

  • My hope is that people will be repulsed by the character's complete lack of ethics and obsession with consumerism - that's what I was saying about the difference between the character's message and the film's message.
  • I do like taking stuff seriously that a lot of people look at as nonsense. I enjoy the insanity of that. And I like the commitment that is needed for that.
  • I have this theory that, depending on your attitude, your life doesn't have to become this ridiculous charade that it seems so many people end up living.
  • I find what I do for a living really funny. I mean, acting is kind of a hilarious thing for a grown man to call a job.
  • I tend to think you're fearless when you recognize why you should be scared of things, but do them anyway.

Christian Bale Autos and Cars (1)

Christian Bale drives 1999 Mercedes C43 AMG

1999 Mercedes C43 AMG

The name Mercedes-Benz immediately conjures up a swanky luxury dream car, but the C43 is different in that as it is valued more for its performance. This silver colored beauty borne on 17" alloy wheels has the same classy looks as other Benz's except for the twin exhausts that are edged with chrome and bears the AMG insignia. The powerful 4.3L V8 engine produces 302 hp and a torque of 302 lb/ft. The black and silver cabin boasts of exclusive, warmed, sports seats that can accommodate four persons easily. Five speed automatic transmission with anti-lock brakes and ESP stability makes it more a drivers' car.

Christian Bale drove up for BAFTA in his newly acquired Benz C43, much to the relief of his fans who were used to seeing him in his old 1995 BMW 325i. Flamboyancy has never been one of his virtues and he doesn't care to spin around in the typical 'celeb cars' though he can afford a couple of them!
