Age difference between Jennifer Lawrence and Christian Bale bothered him

Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence is best known for her extraordinary acting skills, easy going attitude and her incredible sense of humor. However, it seems like it didn't quite convince her American Hustle co-star, Christian Bale with whom she is being paired for the first time.

The actor recently revealed that he was sceptical about working with Lawrence who is quite younger to him. Bale also accepts that he wasn't sure if Lawrence was right for the role of his wife in the film, as he feels he is old enough to be her father! Bale, 40, opened up about sharing screen space with 23-year-old Lawrence and said, "I was really worried that she was going to be far too young for the character. I mean I'm almost old enough to be her Dad. I'm 40 and she's 22, I think, and I thought, 'What's that going to mean about Irv [his character] and everything?'" But Lawrence quite being herself convinced Bale that she was right for the role. Praising the talented actress, Bale added, "She's got such talent. She came in and we discussed [our relationship] and she created this wonderful character that you absolutely buy."
