Shocking new photos of Christian Bale as Dick Cheney

The internet is going crazy over photos of Christian Bale with his drastic weight transformation.

The "Batman" actor gained and lost huge amounts of weight for films like "The Machinist" and "American Hustle," but he looked barely recognizable for his role as Dick Cheney in the upcoming biopic "Backseat."

The images were released at a press conference Sunday at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.

Photos showing the actor with a shaved head and a lot more weight have shocked the world.
