Christian Bale Photos

I'm Batman!
I'm Batman!

Ahh, Christian Bale. Not only are you one damn fine looking man with a huge acting talent, you lead some kind of charmed life -- getting to play characters that tons of people already love. He's Batman! And Bruce Wayne. Oh, he's such a perfect Bruce Wayne, I think. And I'm looking forward so much to seeing him play John Connor in Terminator 4.

There's so much goodness here it almost makes me forget his terrible singing in Newsies... almost ;)

Okay, onto the pretty pictures, starting with some of my favorite black & white shots. So pretty!

5 stars for MY FAVE PIC!

I love the facial hair on him when he wears it. I think it complements his features well and masks some of the sharp angles. Plus, it just sort of makes him look devilish, mmmmm.

Velvet Goldmine Era

Velvet Goldmine, so wonderful for so many reasons -- Christina Bale, Ewan McGregor, Jonathyn Rhys Meyers. Yummy. In the movie, Christian is probably the most drab person in it (but still adorable in a totally awkward geeky sort of way). I'm not sure that all of these were taken around then, but whoever planned the photos was certainly aware of the movie :)

Eeee! So young! It's baby Christian!

Christian Bale promo shots

Judging by the facial hair, I think most of these shots were taken during the press junket he did while promoting 3:10 to Yuma, which is now one of my favorite movies. You can check out my 3:10 to Yuma review if you haven't seen it yet.

These are some of my favorite pics of Christian Bale, especially the first one with the gorgeous big smile.

Christian Bale's body

Okay, we have some important things to consider here. Just how muscular should Christian Bale be to look his best?

I know some love the super ripped look in American Psycho, but that never appealed to me at all. Then there is the beefy look in Batman, which is okay, but doesn't quite trip my trigger.

Personally I think that because Bale tends to be naturally on the lean side, he looks better with a leaner, athletic appearance. My ideal is somewhere between how he looks in Equilibrium and Harsh Realm.

But the convincing is in the photo proof, so let's get to the pictures! And yes, I am conveniently forgetting all about The Machinest (*shudders*).

Equilibrium is one of my favorite Christian Bale movies even though it is hokey as hell. But how can you resist Christian Bale with a puppy? You can't! It is impossible.

Wow, I never heard his real accent before. I thought he'd lost that English accent....ohmigod, drooooool. Though I must admit, I love his American accent. He makes it sound sexy somehow.... I will be linking to this soon!! Yumm!!!!

I like this hub, because you give some quality text content as well and it is not only a photo farm as so many hubs on hub pages. I do like your personal comments!

Isabella, I love his accent! And he has a very deep voice, which is kinda funny when you listen to him from years ago because it just does not go with his youthful looks, but now it works. I like his American accent too.

Solarshingles, thanks! I do try and put some work into them rather than just throwing up a bunch of photos. And I think it usually pays off with the search engines so it's worth the effort! Thanks for noticing *g*

Cool hub, and I agree with Solarshingles, not a tacky skin-fest. Bale is one of the best actors around. The way Lon Chaney sculpted his face to portray different monsters, Bale sculpts his body to fit different characters. This, combined with his intense talent, make him an intimidating force.

It's always nice to have good looks matched with actual talent, and Bale has both in spades.

Stop adding to my man-crush embitca.   I am so in love with good acting and he never disappoints.  My ALL-TIME FAVORITE Christian Bale movie is (drumroll please)

EMPIRE OF THE SUN.  He was just a kid and he's already trading lines with Malkovich.   Stephen Spielberg plucked him from obscurity. 

Also love his take on "Hip To Be Square" in AMERICAN PSYCHO

DJ, I hate to say it but I've never seen Empire of the Sun. I gotta ask though, have you seen NEWSIES? That might disappoint you a little :)

American Psycho is awesome and so was Hip to Be Square. Hahhaha! I love that!

Never saw newsies. When an actor is forced by his agent or otherwise to be in a bad movie, I just avoid it. That's why I never saw Pay It Forward. Out of respect to Kevin Spacey's great career.

If you happen by a hub called 100 Greatest movies of the 80s you'll find EMPIRE in my personal TOP 10 for the decade. It's not dated at all. You'll thank me too because you can get a glimpse of what could be when you watch him as a kid.

Even the enemies in the movie are moved by his spirit.

p.s. Hottest avatar around. Is it you?

Easily the hottest Hollywood actor, and I completely agree - he looks better with some facial hair. He does play insane characters really well (like in American Psycho, the Machinist, even Laurel Canyon)
