When Christian Bale showed up at The Golden Globes Sunday with long hair and a full beard, some people speculated The Fighter star’s new look was for a movie role. That’s not the case! Christian has revealed the reason he decided to grow his hair long and not shave.
“In truth, you know what this is? This is unemployment, this is all this is,” Christian told Access Hollywood. “I haven’t worked since The Fighter, and it’s nice to just not bother cutting your hair. When you’re [not] in a job that everything always has to be, you know, worked out for a character, I just sort of let it all hang out, but it’s unemployment, that’s all it is.”
Christian Bale took home the Golden Globe statue for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for his role as Dickie Eklund in The Fighter.
