Batman star, Christian Bale, is known as a Hollywood heartthrob but his recent transformation has left fans' jaws on the floor.
Bale was recently spotted in public as buzz begins to grow around his new movie Backseat were he plays former American Vice President Dick Cheney alongside Hollywood funnyman Steve Carrell. The usually polished star stepped out with a shaved head, creased shirt and baggy trousers:

The image below is Dick Cheney, the man Bale is playing in Backseat. Is the resemblance uncanny?
Twitter users couldn't help but comment on how average Bale looks after undergoing his physical transformation but we can't help think that he's enjoying being incognito:

Also, fans seem to think he's a lot happier in himself...

But there's speculation over what his next role will be:

We have to give it Christian, his ability to transform his body shape is incredible. He's basically the chameleon of actors and is more than likely going to receive an Oscar nod:
