Unfortunately Jennifer Lawrence was unable to attend yesterday's Berlin Film Festival screening of American Hustle due to prior obligations to some movie about games that make you hungry, or something. Which meant that the dozens of photographers gathered on the red carpet had to make due with the film's leading men, Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale. The shutterbugs were likely a tad disappointed, because Lawrence is known for her outlandish red carpet antics, whether its discussing her eating habits, photobombing her famous friends, or just making a funny face.
Luckily for them, Christian Bale decided to pick up the slack.
As the photo above will attest, Bale decided to do his best J Lawr impression by crossing his eyes and sticking out his tongue. It's a kind of goofiness we're unaccustomed to seeing from the notoriously intense actor. Maybe Lawrence's childlike enthusiasm has finally rubbed off on Bale. Does this mean we can expect similar wackiness from Bale when he walks the biggest red carpet of them all on March 2? Is it possible that he outdoes even Lawrence herself? Will we get a photo of Lawrence and Bale together in all their goofy glory? We can't wait to find out.
