Christian Bale

Christian Bale
Actor Christian Bale made his critically acclaimed film debut in Steven Spielberg's "Empire of the Sun."

His breakout role came in 2000 with "American Psycho." Bale played a yuppie serial killer.

Bale is known for his ability to completely transform his body for a role. He lost about 60 pounds to play the lead role in 2004's "The Machinist," and then immediately bulked up for 2005's "Batman Begins."

Off-screen, Bale has become known for his temper. In 2008, he faced assault allegations from his mother and sister. The charges were dropped. Then in 2009, an audio clip from the set of "Terminator Salvation" surfaced, featuring a profanity-laced outburst from Bale.
