“He’s Fatman, not Batman”: Jennifer Lawrence Was Terribly Disappointed after Making out With Christian Bale in this $251M Oscar Nominated Film

Back in 2013, Christian Bale and Jennifer Lawrence once starred in a crime/drama movie titled American Hustle. The movie, directed by David O. Russell was very well received and the cast also had a fun time behind-the-scenes of the movie.

With Christian Bale known for his variety of physiques, the Silver Linings Playbook actress was in for a surprise as her make-out scene did not go the way she expected. During a scene in which Bale was not exactly skinny and muscular and yet, Lawrence had expected him to be in his Batman physique!

Christian Bale, has a muscular physique in The Dark Knight trilogy and is known for increasing and decreasing weight as per necessity. In American Hustle, the actor was asked to gain weight for his role of Irving Rosenfeld. This, however, was not known by Jennifer Lawrence as she was quite excited about a makeout scene with The Dark Knight actor.

In an interview, director David O. Russell revealed that Jennifer Lawrence jokingly stated that she had expected Christian Bale to be Batman and not Fatman!

“I finally get to make out with Christian Bale, and he’s a really fat guy. He’s Fatman, not Batman.”

David O. Russell was however impressed with Bale’s ability to essentially shape-shift his body.


“The shocking thing is that Christian can charm ladies even with the comb-over and the belly because it comes from confidence and heart.”

The movie was praised by many and Lawrence got a knack for making such movies for the future. Her upcoming movie titled No Hard Feelings is also one such example of the actress’ penchant for unique movies.
