Where Is Christian Bale Now? His Height, Wife & Net Worth

There is possibly no better actor in Hollywood that can go through major body transformation for an acting role, as Christian Bale has managed to do in his career. He has famously done so for the roles of Bruce Wayne / Batman in Christopher Nolan’s superhero films; Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012), and for the role of Dick Cheney in Adam Mckay’s Vice (2018). Join us as we take a look at the life, career, earnings, and a lot of all other things concerning the multiple award-winning Wales-born actor.

Biography & Age

Christian Bale was born Christian Charles Philip Bale, the only son of four children to Jenny (née James) and David Bale, on the 30th of January 1974 in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales. His mother worked as a Circus Performer while his father was an entrepreneur, commercial pilot, and talent manager.

From a very young age, as his family moved from Wales to different cities across England, and then Portugal, Bale had grown a huge interest in acting. At the age of 8, he landed his first acting gig in a commercial for a fabric softener. The following year, he played a child rock star in a Pac-Man cereal commercial before going on to make his stage acting debut in 1984 alongside Rowan Atkinson in the London West End production of The Nerd. Two years after that show, Bale made his film acting debut in the television film Anastasia: The Mystery of Anna (1986), where he played Tsarevich Alexei Nikolaevich of Russia. He subsequently appeared in films like Mio in the Land of Faraway (1987), Empire of the Sun (1987), Henry V (1989), and Treasure Island (1990), all of which his performances in earned him rave reviews.

At around the age of 16, while attending Bournemouth School, Bale’s parents divorced. Because of this, he and his father moved to Los Angeles, California, while his mother and sisters stayed back in the southern coastal English town of Bournemouth. While stateside, Bale continued to hone his craft, appearing in musical films like Newsies (1992) and Swing Kids (1993) as well as in the Disney animation Pocahontas (1995) where he voiced the character of Thomas, as he went on to become one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood.

Christian Bale is happily married to actress, Sandra Blazic. Mrs. Bale, popularly known as Sibi, was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois by parents of Serbian origin. The 5 feet 11 inches (1.8 m) tall actress attended the University of Southern California where she acquired a Bachelor of Science degree in Business before going on to work as a model and make-up artist.

Bale, who had outrightly spoken about his intentions of not wanting to get married since everyone in his family had gone through a divorce, met his future wife while she was working as a personal assistant to Bale’s friend, actress Winona Ryder. The two soon fell head over heels in love with each other before choosing to elope to Las Vegas, Nevada, in January 2000. Together, they have two children: a daughter named Emmaline, who was born in 2005, and a son named Joseph who was born in 2014.

What is Christian Bale’s Net Worth?

According to the Celebrity Net Worth website, Christian Bale has an estimated net worth of $80 million. This should not come as a surprise as the Oscar and Golden Globe award-winning actor has starred in numerous popular films, some of which include  American Psycho (2000), The Machinist (2004), and the Batman trilogy, one of which is amongst the top 10 highest-grossing films in the world.

His Height, Weight & Body Measurements

Fans of Christian Bale have described his height as deceptively tall. This is because even though he stands at an impressive 6 feet 0 inches (183 cm), he always appears to be shorter. The athletic body built actor, whose hair and eye are colored dark brown, weighs about 82 kg (181 lbs) and has body measurements of Chest – 46 inches, Arms / Biceps – 16 inches, and Waist – 31 inches.

Where Is He Now?

Christian Bale is still very much involved in acting even though he has achieved considerable success. In recent times, the British actor, who has since become a naturalized U.S. citizen after having made Los Angeles, California his home since 1992, has appeared in films like The Big Short (2015), Knight of Cups (2015), The Promise (2016), and Hostiles (2017). In 2018, he went through major body transformation in order to play the role of former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney in the biographical film Vice (2018).
