Hardy put on 30 lbs of muscle to play Bane. He had muscles on his muscles.

I think he would have looked a lot cooler without the beer belly. Just don't tell him I said that.
His traps are Huge

how can that be healthy? Constantly building up, then losing muscles. I know it's completely supervised by professionals but still...
User avatar #89 to #7 - jinjo (03/30/2013) [-]
It's acually very bad for you, ***** with your metabolism and what not, but so long as he keeps eating well and staying in shape it shouldn't be a problem from here on out.

It also depends on the person, Jared Leto from 30 seconds from Mars had to gain weight for his role as Jon Lennon's killer, and he says he feels like he's still affected physically from it.

There's this thing called special effects
User avatar #16 to #7 - defeats (03/30/2013) [-]
It's not really healthy, and there's only so many times you can do it. It causes the body (and most importantly your heart) a great deal of stress.

If i remember right there were some health issues for his role in the machinist
User avatar #10 to #7 - beerterror (03/30/2013) [-]
Fighters are widely known to shift their weights just before the fight to gain additional stamina and to fight with lighter opponents, e.g. Palhares loses about 20 kg in half a month? It sure isn't healthy, and definitely isn't easy, but people do it.
#14 to #10 - thomasampeir (03/30/2013) [-]
That is mostly water weight. This allows fighters to quickly rehydrate and retain their power as much as possible. Christian Bale obviously cuts down on muscle (e.g. take very few calories). I am not saying it is healthy but it not nearly puts as much stress on his body as MMA fighters/Boxers do with their big water cuts.
#13 to #10 - Tommovdv (03/30/2013) [-]
I know about fighters cutting weight for fights, Fighters in the 180 pound devision usually walk around at 200 pounds. But from 180 down to 125 and then back to 200 pounds. Even for fighters that seems to be a bit over the top.

stop bitching around interwebz and actually do something,i would recommend swimming, running and healthy food,i lost 17 kg in 3 months (from 89 to 72) and i call ******** on any health issues. i managed to do this while suffering from a bad case of Scheuermann's disease(google it).Good luck

It's pretty simpel actually, along with natural selection our bodies have developed something refered to as "Body Restore System" (If i remember correctly that isn't the real word for it but w/e) Basically what it does is restoring lost muscle tissue. A great xample would be if you went to the gym for 5 years, you could imagine getting huge, a beautiful body, then an incident happen, lets say you're hit by a car, and you have to be hositalized for 5 years. You would be back to how you looked from the beginning, but it won't take as long as before to regain the lost tissue, ofcouse 5 years are alot but i believe less than half a year of lifting would bring you back to the way you looked before the inscident.

Christian Bale simply uses this method along with eating correctly to grow/shrink for the roles he takes.

Sorry for dyslexic message but i don't feel like reading it through, i believe enough in myself to think that i didn't **** it up..

Steroids, a personal trainer and chef and the opportunity to just lift and shape his body for six months without interruption.
User avatar #40 to #37 - trollchildxy (03/30/2013) [-]
#46 to #40 - iamphoenix (03/30/2013) [-]
No. They used a bit of CGI and staging to make Bane's traps look bigger, but they didn't use any to make Christian Bale swole.
User avatar #47 to #46 - trollchildxy (03/30/2013) [-]
I was just going off of what you said, I personally don't think that Bale would be a man for steroids so I said something equally perhaps more-so ridiculous. And I know, I thought Bane was a badass until i read more about the film T.T
#50 to #47 - iamphoenix (03/30/2013) [-]
A lot more people use steroids than you might think. Although I generally assume somebody is natural at first unless it's blatantly obvious, it wouldn't surprise me if he did use some tren. Tom Hardy did get xbawkshueg traps for TDR, but not as big as they were in the film.
User avatar #51 to #50 - trollchildxy (03/30/2013) [-]
Yeah, man was still pretty monstrous but when you see on set pictures you can tell the touch-ups they did. Granted that just makes the film experience even more badass.

Im now interested to see how filming the hobbit went, because I know that, for example, the Fellowship was filmed with minimal CGI and still looked badass. I wonder if they followed that trend towards camera angles to alter "Height Expectations" in The Hobbit or not. I.E. Did they use a computer to make Bilbo look smaller than the others, or clever camera angling again. TO GOOGLE!....
#53 to #51 - iamphoenix (03/30/2013) [-]
It's a bit of CGI and camera work. They did that a lot with the hobbits and actor placement in Fellowship. Frodo would be standing fifteen feet behind Gandalf when they were supposed to be close together, or the camera would be pointed downwards to make one appear taller/shorter than they really were.
User avatar #54 to #53 - trollchildxy (03/30/2013) [-]
Yeah, Saw some clips of on-set shoots and they did some really awesome things. Perspective is an interesting thing to ponder.
User avatar #44 to #40 - cinematicbrix (03/30/2013) [-]
I hope you understand that CGI is not usable in real life.

maybe not steroids, but most likely suplements and a lot of dedication to the gym

In Warcraft III, the attack upgrades for basic melee units for the scourge had those icons. When he's skinny it's the first upgrade, when he's swole it's the third iteration.
User avatar #61 to #38 - FlameBreaker (03/30/2013) [-]
You're very close. That icon is the icon for Armlet in DotA, and when you toggle it on, it has the glowing effect, and gives you strength but drains hp and when you turn it off, it looks like the other one.
#74 to #61 - iamphoenix (03/30/2013) [-]
Warcraft III is where the icon comes from. It's the icon for the unholy strength upgrade. DotA was originally a custom Warcraft map.
User avatar #116 to #74 - FlameBreaker (03/30/2013) [-]
Yeah, I know that. That's why I said you were close. I was just saying that the joke is the fact that he toggles the Armlet on and off, which is a tactic used because it gives you a surge of hp each time you do.
User avatar #17 - biomedic (03/30/2013) [-]
starving yourself for long enough causes your body to use its own muscles as a source of protein, meaning you loose muscle mass quickly. building up would be the difficult part.
#42 to #17 - anon (03/30/2013) [-]
Not when you were built before thanks to muscle memory.
#27 to #17 - vkd (03/30/2013) [-]
you have muscle memory, once you put on that amount on tension on the muscle it remembers just as a guy with a skilled talent. so when you lift again your body knows the tension from before and builds up extremely quickly because you have been there before.

once you have been there, you can easily get there again.

you can build up lost muscle after a year with no workouts in a 1-3 months

I watched this film when I was little, and didn't understand much of it back then. That's why I found this picture very nostalgic. I'll definitely watch it again. Thanks a lot.
