Christian Charles Philip Bale (born 30 January 1974) is an English actor. He has starred in both blockbuster films and smaller projects from independent producers and art houses.
Bale first caught the public eye at the age of 13, when he was cast in the starring role of Steven Spielberg's Empire of the Sun (1987). Based on the original story by J. G. Ballard, Bale played an English boy who is separated from his parents and subsequently finds himself lost in a Japanese internment camp during World War II.
In 2000, he garnered critical acclaim for his portrayal of serial killer Patrick Bateman in American Psycho (2000). He is known for going to great lengths to portray characters in film, notably for the psychological thriller The Machinist (2004), where he lost 63 pounds (28,5 kg) to play the role of Trevor Reznik.
Bale went on to receive greater commercial recognition and acclaim for his performance as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012). He also portrayed Dicky Eklund in the biopic The Fighter (2010), for which he received critical acclaim and won several awards, including the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role. In 2013, he starred in the comedy-drama American Hustle, for which he received his second Academy Award nomination, his first in the Best Actor category, in addition to a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy.
On 29 January 2000, Bale married Sandra "Sibi" Blaži? (born 1970), a former model, make-up artist, and personal assistant to actress Winona Ryder; the couple have a daughter born in 2005 and a son born in August 2014.
Since 1992, the Bales have resided in Los Angeles, California. Like his late father, Bale actively supports environmental groups such as Greenpeace and the World Wildlife Fund. Christian, along with his wife Sibi, is on the Board of Trustees of the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund. Bale is also the stepson of feminist Gloria Steinem.
