9 Actors Who Went Too Far For Roles
Christian Bale: "The Machinist"
For his role in "The Machinist," Christian Bale decided to drop 63 pounds without so much as a suggestion to do so from the film's director. He got down to 120 pounds for the film, endangering his health. In retrospect, he says that he would never go that far for a role again. Not because he could have died, but because he doesn't want to be "that guy" that loses weight for all his movies. Good thinking, Christian. [Yahoo]
