Christian Bale has been around, someone who is best known for his portrayal of “Batman” or Bruce Wayne. Beyond that, the Academy Award-winning actor has had several other flicks – some of which he took on as early as a child.

For those who may not know, Bale also had appearances in films such as “Newsies,” “Swing Kids” and “Empire of the Sun.” However, it is his appearance in the “Dark Knight” trilogy that stands out, something that is best associated with him.

It was with the “Dark Knight” where Bale’s stock shot up. He became an in-demand actor. Among the other films, he starred in include “American Hustle,” “The Big Short” and “Vice.”

But his most recent one, perhaps one that most will remember is taking on the villain role of Gorr on “Thor: Love and Thunder.” Aside from that, he will be re-teaming up with David O. Russel on “Amsterdam.”

One can only guess what would be next for the 48-year-old actor. But when asked in an interview with GQ, Bale mentioned he would not mind retiring from acting for him to take on other things outside show business.

"More than content: f***ing ecstatic. I've always been bent on "When's this gonna end? This has to end." I like doing things that have nothing to do with film. And I find myself very happily not playing dress-up, not pretending to be somebody else for long lengths of time," the veteran actor said.

While it is not imminent, a reason behind Bale considering retirement is his approach to accepting roles. There are somewhere he would need to lose weight.

This happened when he did “The Machinist,” where he needed to lose 110 lbs. But after that, he needed to bulk up again to fit into the muscular nature of Batman on “Batman Begins.”

Regardless, Bale has done more than enough in the world of acting. Considering retirement is one thing but pushing through with it is another.
