This has to go down as another reason why Donald Trump creates the most ridiculous headlines.

Christian Bale recalled the time he met Donald Trump and says the US President thought he was his Batman character Bruce Wayne. (So is this what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?) Bale told Variety, "I met him, one time".

Christian Bale has said "everything hurts" after he gained weight to play United States politician Dick Cheney in the upcoming film Vice.

"I think he thought I was Bruce Wayne", Bale said, "because I was dressed as Bruce Wayne".

Speaking to the Press Association at the Vice premiere in Los Angeles, Bale said: "Everything hurts now, I've got to really start thinking about if I can manage this again and the answer is probably no".

The actor gained 40 lbs for the role, completely transforming him - but this time, Bale decided not to "wing it". It was quite entertaining, ' he stated.

He added: 'I had no idea at the time that he would think about running for president'.

The actor, 44, was asked if he had met the US President on the red carpet for his new political movie Vice - in which he stars as former Vice President Dick Cheney - on Tuesday night. Known for his dramatic weight gain and weight loss in the past for his roles, Bale chose to seek advice this time around to ensure he gained weight in a more healthy way.

Christian said: 'This is the first time I actually did go to a nutritionist cause I'm starting to feel my mortality.

Vice is set to be released in cinemas in Ireland on January 25.
