Due to his part in The Machinist (2004), Christian Bale was vastly underweight (about 120 pounds on his six foot frame) when he was under consideration for the part. After being cast, he was told to become as "big as you could be" by Christopher Nolan. Bale underwent a six month dietary and exercise regimen, and ending up weighing about 220 pounds (about forty pounds above his normal weight).

Bale described the experience as an unbearable physical ordeal.
