Christian Bale

"American Psycho"
Christian Bale was born in Pembrokeshire, Wales. He started in the theater as a child and following the artistic talent of his mother. At the age of 8 (1983), he appeared briefly in an advertisement for the cereal "Pac Man."

At the very young age of 13, he debuted in the film by Steven Spielberg "Empire of the Sun", passing a cast of more than 4000. He was praised by critics.

In 1989 he worked in the movie Henry V and the following year at Treasure Island.
"The Machinist"
In 2000, he played a role in the movie "Shaft: The Return" and "American Psycho." In this second film, Bale plays the role of a fantastic physicist who seems to elevate to the status of sex symbol, but he is a versatile actor. Four years later, his role in "The Machinist" was a physical and mental challenge when faced with one of the most difficult roles of his career so far. He lost a lot of weight. He overcame the challenge with great satisfaction from both the critics and the public.
"Batman Begins"
His great opportunity to become an actor of contribution arrived with the role in "Batman Begins" (2005) for which he had to regain lost weight and also achieve high fitness and martial arts mastery.

In 2006 he played the movie "The Prestige" with Hugh Jackman and Michael Caine, directed by Christopher Nolan. In 2007 he participated in "Rescue Dawn", "I'm Not There" and "3:10 to Yuma." In 2008 he returned to the role of Batman in The Dark Knight ", which had very good impressions and broke box office records in the United States achieving more than 500 million dollars. His recent work has been in Tape "Terminator Salvation", where he played John Connor and "Public Enemies", as Melvin Purvis, an FBI agent.
Bale is a winner of an "Oscar" and "Golden Globe" for best Supporting Actor in his role in the movie "The Fighter", and in April he will begin filming for Nolan's next film, "Batman: The Dark Knight Rises".

I liked the performance of Bale when I saw the movie "Batman Begins", then "Batman: The Dark Knight", which made me see more films as "American Psycho", "The Machinist" and "The Fighter" where (for me) He does a great job.
