Is Christian Bale avoiding the sun to prepare for the role of Dracula in an upcoming movie? That’s the claim in one of this week’s new tabloids. Find out the truth below!

According to the National Enquirer, the method actor will be starring in a reboot of the iconic horror franchise and wants to make his skin as pale as possible to play a vampire. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “Christian is already fair-skinned, but he’s been avoiding the California sun to get that unnatural skin tone like Dracula’s.”

The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “This is a guy who will do anything to make the character look real to his audience and to himself. Everyone’s praying he doesn’t start drinking blood like a real vampire.” The “source” continues, “But no one would be surprised if he did take a swig of the stuff to make the scenes look real.”

Only, there’s one major issue with the tabloid’s story: Bale isn’t attached to star in a Dracula reboot. Regardless of the actor’s lack of involvement in any vampire projects, Gossip Cop still checked in with a reliable source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us the story isn’t true. We’re told the actor isn’t avoiding sunlight to take on a character he isn’t playing.
