Believe it or not, yes, that person on the left is Christian Bale.

The "Dark Knight Rises" star showed off his surprising new look at LAX over the weekend -- where he was seen sporting a completely bald head, reddish facial hair and a few extra pounds. 

If he wasn't with his wife Sibi and the couple's daughter, we almost wouldn't have recognized him!

It appears the actor went bald for his role in "American Hustle," where he was seen with a comb-over on set. Our best guess: He buzzed it and then wears a hair piece over his bald dome for the flick.

What do you think of the new look? It's definitely different.
