Christian Bale joked that he took a lot of cocaine to loose some weight for the big movie "The Fighter"

He took supplements so he can mantain his diet and it really worked for him!

“[I] was just running like crazy. I could run four hours on and I felt really healthy,” Bale said of his regimen on set.

“I think I probably would have tried to experience my own stories in the way my father did, the sort of travel, the randomness of life, educating himself through experiences,” he told Esquire magazine when asked what he would do if he wasn’t an actor.

“I think I get that partially through acting, but you have to make an effort to be in an unprotected environment because everyone thinks you’re a completely incapable idiot who couldn’t possibly brush his teeth without an assistant. You have to make an effort in order to be able to actually experience the country that you’re in.”

“Well, it’s embarrassing to be a star,” he added. “Most people look at you like, ‘That’s not a f***ing job, is it?’ And then on top of that, you learn very quickly that you’re just a tool — other people are manipulating everything you do and there’s nothing you can do.

“But I learned that there’s a certain character that can be built from embarrassing yourself endlessly. If you can sit happy with embarrassment, there’s not much else that can really get to you.”
