According to Metro on Jan. 12, Jennifer Lawrence seemed to be disappointed in having to kiss the overweight Christian Bale in "American Hustle". Bale, who is best known for his role in "The Dark Knight" films, had to put on weight for the role of his character in the David O. Russell film. His role was that of a starving artist by the name of Irving Rosenfeld.
"I finally get to make out with Christian Bale and he’s a really fat guy".
Lawrence's character, Rosyland Rosenfeld, played the wife of Bale's character didn't impress Russell with said remark. Then she added, "He’s Fatman, not Batman".
Russell who actually seemed to be me more familiar with Bale's personality, actually commends the celebrity with his ability to even charm the ladies with the comb over and more belly. The director mentioned that "it comes from confidence and the heart".
Bale had played the Batman character in the last three "Dark Knight" films and stars along with Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Jeremy Renner, and Bradley Cooper in "American Hustle" now showing in theaters.
