Christian Bale is known for losing weight for films roles. But this time, the Batman hunk has packed on a few lbs. to play a '70s con man turned FBI guy in his next movie.
The Oscar winner, 39, was seen with greasy hair and a protruding belly on the Massachusetts set of the untitled film – quite a sight next to his gorgeous costar Amy Adams.
It's a far cry from Bale's more chiseled days as the Caped Crusader, and even farther from his roles in The Fighter and The Machinist, for which he lost dramatic amounts of weight.

The countdown to the Academy Awards has officially begun, and so has the buzz around what the nominees will be wearing.
Nominated actresses shared their gown plans with reporters at a Beverly Hills luncheon in their honor Monday.
Though Jennifer Lawrence joked, "I'm going to wear sweatpants," it turns out just the opposite is true. "Last time was comfort. This year, I'm like, 'Suck it up, wear a corset,'" she said. "I am going to go for fashion this time."

Matt Damon more than made up for his decade of being bumped from Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Declaring "I am in command of this ship," Damon not only hijacked the show Thursday night, but he brought along a little big-name help.
Ben Affleck, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman, Demi Moore, Amy Adams, Sally Field, Robert De Niro, Don Cheadle, John Krasinski and Oprah Winfrey all played a part.
Andy Garcia sat in as sidekick. Sheryl Crow led the band.
And where was Kimmel? Oh, he was there, all right: gagged and tied on the back of the set, as Damon took over.

This year's Oscars may not take place until Feb. 24, but the ceremony's host, Seth MacFarlane, already started earning his salary Thursday morning – by joining Emma Stone to announce the nominees for the 85th annual Academy Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' headquarters in Beverly Hills.
And the name that kept coming up: Lincoln, which reaped the lion's share number of nominations, 12, including those for Best Picture, Best Director Steven Spielberg, Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis and Supporting Actress Sally Field.
Other highly recognized films were Life of Pi, with 11 nominations; Les Misérables, with nine; and Argo, with seven, though, surprisingly, not one for its director Ben Affleck.

Sure, the presidential election season may be long over, but the spirit of democracy is still in full-swing in Hollywood, where some familiar faces are campaigning for the industry version of a spot in the White House: a gold Oscar statuette.
You'll have to wait until February to see which of your favorite scene-stealers will take home honors at the 85th Academy Awards. Until then, the industry's top contenders arrived in head-to-toe red carpet form Saturday at the Academy's Governors Awards, which serves as an unofficial venue for potential nominees to convince Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences members to rock the vote (in their favor, of course).
