Bale, 45, won the Golden Globe for Best Actor and is nominated for an Oscar for his role as the ex-veep, for which he accumulated 60 pounds.

"Like a bull frog," Bale joked. "Or sometimes they have described it as a walrus."
He added: "I built my neck, so I felt I could take anything … I felt like a bulldozer all day."
Bale, who previously dropped to 120 pounds for "The Machinist" in 2004 and gained 30 pounds of muscle for "Batman Begins" a year later, said that playing Cheney was "charming … seemed almost impossible."

In December, Bale told Variety about his weight gain for the part: "You're losing all discipline and devouring yourself like a madman." I need to stop it, it's not healthy for your body. "I'm in my mid-40s, it's going to start reaching me if I do not start to be a little aware of my mortality."

"Almost always I have enjoyed the transformation, mental and physical, sometimes it can be a great help to look in the mirror and not see yourself, in terms of being able to eliminate you from any type of character," he added. I'm glad I did, but I think it should be in the past now. "
