Yeah!!!!!!!! I LOVE Christian Bale! He's definitely a hottie. I'd totally do him.

Tara said...

I loved him in "Little Women" and the most recent "Batman", and I was flipping through the channels recently when I came across "Empire of the Sun" and realized he was the boy.

Dennis said...

Can I suggest a male and a female for the humpday hottie. Bring on the women........

egan said...

My, you have excellent taste in men. Again, another fine choice. My wife has t.h.o. for this guy and I can't blame her. I watched The New World last night and you could barely pick him out, he's that good at changing his appearance. He's got one of the best American accents out there.

Erica said...

Love your new profile photo! I have just purchased my own computer for home, so I will be able to blog some more soon and check your blog more often from now on!!

Beth said...

He scared the bejeebers out of me when he did "American Psycho."

And you do know he's Gloria Steinem's stepson, right? How cool is that!

Rachel said...

Playtah ~ I haven't seen him in most of those films but he was yumalicious in Batman.

Tara ~ I had no idea that he was in that movie until I researched him.

Dennis ~ You can suggest anything you want. Good luck on getting it :)

Egan ~ Thank You! What is t.h.o.?
If you see the machinist you won't recognize him. He lost 60 pounds for that and was skeletal.

Erica ~ Yay...I am glad that you have a computer at home now. Thanks for the compliment.

Beth ~ I can't watch scary movies. they give me nightmares. But I love Christian Bale enough that I might consider watching that one.
I didn't know that he was Gloria Steinem's step son. Thanks for that tidbit.

dmarks said...

Less controversial than Christine Baranski, for sure!

Churlita said...

I didn't know he was in Empire of the Sun either. Now, I feel a little more like a creepy old lady thinking he's hot...But I can get over that.

David in DC said...

I did not know he was the kid in Empire of the sun. That's great. I loved that kid.

American Psycho creeped me out as a book, so I never saw the movie.

He makes an awesome young Bruce Wayne/Batman.

Awww, this whole thing is making me miss A1 steak sauce.

David in DC said...

Maybe you can satisfy Dennis with an old picture of Renee Richards, or an even older one of Christine Jorgenson.

And there's always Jamie Liegh Curtis, if the rumors are true.

Babybull40 said...

He was also in another little movie called Reign of fire.. I knew then he would make something of himself.. he was awesome in Batman returns..definitely worth being a hottie..any day of the week..

l.b. said...

Oooohh Christian Bale! Good one, Rachel! I could not believe the way he looked in The Machinist. That was scary and not hot.

egan said...

I have seen The Machinist too. Man was he ever paper thin. It was borderline hard to watch him in that role. Titty Hard On. Enough said.

dmarks said...

So do tell us how "300" was. Oops. Sorry, that's off topic. I mean tell us about the movie 300 which didn't have Christian Bale in it :)

Rachel said...

dmarks ~ She wasn't the most controversial.

Churlita ~ He is definitely grown up now so no robbing the cradle guilt is necessary.

David In D.C. ~ Dennis harasses me all the time at work to post women. I told him today that if he complained one more time that I wouldn't post another woman for 2 months...

babybull40 ~ There are a lot of movies that he is in that I haven't seen. I have a list of them that I must rent ~ when I get a new DVD player. Mine went kaput.

l.b. ~ I have seen photos but I haven't seen the actual movie. The photos are really creepy.

egan ~ He lost over 60 pounds to play that role. That is a TON for someone who isn't heavy. Thanks for the explanation.

dmarks ~ 300 was FANTASTIC!!! It was soooo good. One thing that was pretty cool was that the blood that sprayed all over the place (it was gory) was in a cartoonish form and would disappear when it hit the ground like in a video game. I would totally recommend this movie to anyone who liked Gladiator or any kind of war movie. Also someone who likes video games would enjoy it as well.

looooooooooooooove him!

I love you, love you, love you, love you for putting Mr. Bale as your hump day hottie. He is -hands down- at the top of my lists of hot men.

Yay! Wonderful eye candy

Freckle Face Girl said...

Amen! -even though he is almost exactly a year younger than me & I prefer older guys. :)

Erica said...

Somehow he reminds me of Anon 1!!!!
