Amazing Dedication: Christian Bale Killed Self For Frankenstein Role


YOU may have noticed that Christian Bale looks unrecognisable as Frankenstein’s monster in the forthcoming Maggie Gyllenhaal-directed movie, and you’d be 100% correct as the method actor revealed he had killed himself early last year especially for the role.

The now lifeless meat-lump revealed via Ouija board that he is currently on the other side while his corpse is on press tour across the world, being transported in a specially designed freezer so as not to decay.

“I really wanted to get into the role so started dismembering myself for the part, making sure to tie all those arteries before eventually getting my agent to chop off my head and remaining right arm,” Bale said discussing the process, which is set to gain him an Oscar nomination next year, “as an actor you’ve got to really dive into your role if you want to succeed in this business, so I bought a one-way ticket to Deadsville – try beat that one, Joaquin!”

With an all-star cast for ‘The Bride’, co-stars Penélope Cruz, Peter Sarsgaard and Annette Bening said working with Bale’s lifeless corpse which was now poorly stitched together for the role was an absolute honour.

“The banter we had on set just putting Christian into different funny positions really made this film a joy to work on,” said Penélope Cruz, who was rumoured to have been spotted dining out with Bale’s torso during filming.

“Even though he’s dead and now rotting away he’s still very sexy,” Cruz later told Variety magazine.
