Jennifer Lawrence Didn’t Want to Kiss Christian Bale in ‘American Hustle’ Because ‘He’s A Really Fat Guy’

Jennifer Lawrence‘s outspoken honesty is one of the things we love most about her — but she may have taken the candor a little too far this time, as her ‘American Hustle’ director recalls she didn’t want to kiss Christian Bale in the film because of his weight gain, he told Us Weekly.

“‘I finally get to make out with Christian Bale, and he’s a really fat guy,’” Director David O’ Russell recalled Lawrence saying on set. “‘He’s Fatman, not Batman.’”

To play con artist Irving Rosenfeld, Lawrence’s on-screen husband, Bale gained a significant amount of weight for the role — a sharp contrast to his sculpted body in the ‘Batman’ films.

While we get that she would have preferred Bale to be more in shape, it’s pretty surprising that J. Law would make such a statement, considering she is all about positive body image and recently even announced that it should be illegal to call people fat on television.
