Former Batman actor, Christian Bale, is portraying the character of US politician Dick Cheney.
According to Variety, the star shaved his head, bleached his eyebrows and put on 18kg to achieve a resemblance to Cheney.
In an interview with CBS, Bale said that this was the first time he considered his health while undergoing an extreme transformation for a movie role.
“It was the first time in my life that I realized I had to do this in a smart way. I’ve lost weight, I’ve gained weight, [but] I never went to a nutritionist in my life,” he said in December.
“It was the first time that I said, ‘You know what? I better really do this the right way.’”
“In the past for losing weight I went, ‘Ah, I’ll just smoke and drink whiskey and eat everything,’ and it worked! But I’m in my mid-40s now and I just thought, ‘Probably just eating cream puffs nonstop is not gonna be so good for my ticker,’” he said.

Bale has shocked fans on multiple occasions with the intense physical transformations he undergoes.
In 2004, the actor dieted for four months to play a man with crippling insomnia, bringing his weight down to just 54kg.
The star then had just six months to bulk up for his role in Batman Begins.
Vice is scheduled for US release on Christmas Day and will feature other A-listers, including Amy Adams, Steve Carell, Tyler Perry and Sam Rockwell.
