Christian Bale Departs Michael Mann’s Enzo Ferrari Biopic

15 January 2016 2:54 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Throughout his career, Christian Bale has turned yo-yo dieting into an art form. Literally. While many actors may shy away from piling on the pounds, bulking up or starving themselves within an inch of death, for Bale that type of method acting only proved his dedication to the craft. It’s been a bit barmy watching him balloon and then suddenly – Pop! – back to his regular size, and it looks as if he hasn’t got the energy to chow down on anymore deep fried pizzas. The actor has left Michael Mann’s Enzo Ferrari biopic due to this very issue.

Deadline reported the news, citing “health concerns” as the main contributing factor toward his departure. Coming straight off The Big Short, where he’s pretty much normal size, Bale would have had to hit the carbs with a shovel to reach his target weight to play the iconic Italian racing car driver. »
