The actresses who portrayed the five big mouthed, big-haired sisters in “The Fighter” attend the EW pre-SAG party and dress up for the SAG awards. Are they ready to move onto Wisteria Lane?
Christian Bale was clearly still in his “The Fighter” character, Dicky Eklund, backstage at the Critics Choice Awards on Friday (Jan. 14). But hey, why not. His astonishing portrayal of the Lowell, Massachussets fighter/crack addict just got him a Best Supporting Actor award. And he may get another award for the role at the Golden Globes on Sunday (Jan. 16).
A very jovial and animated Christian revealed that Dicky’s secret to a good punch is “Everything comes from the ass!” Asked if playing crack-addicted Dicky was akin to prepping for the role of an emaciated insomniac in “The Machinist”, he said, “It’s Dicky, man. He’s unlike any other character. The physical stuff, that’s just the beginning. That’s just a way to get into it . . . he’s something else, I love him to bits. We’re good friends now.”
Oh, and he also told everyone to go to dickyeklund.com for good fight training. Just be sure to bring your ass.
