Young at heart! Christian Bale, 39, zooms around on a scooter

He may be close to 40 years of age.
But Christian Bale proved he was still young at heart on Saturday.
The actor, 39, did his best to keep up with his wife Sibi Blazic, 42, and their agile eight-year-old daughter Emmeline as they travelled down the Boston street on scooters.

The actor has been busy filming David O. Russell's yet-to-be titled movie in the Massachusetts capital and was enjoying a weekend off.
Christian was bundled up in a casual grey sweat jacket, baggy black cargo trousers and trainers for his outing.
He may have hoped to hide his identity beneath a black baseball cap and dark sunglasses, but his  singular nose and the shape of his bearded face clearly gave him away.

His good-natured spouse was in a smiling mood as she held onto the handlebars.
Sibi, who met the star while she was working as Winona Ryder's assistant and married him in January 2000, was a natural on her scooter. 
The brunette was warmly attired in a black coat, blue jeans, scarf and trainers for the outgoing family venture.

Most impressive was Emmeline, who just celebrated her birthday last month.
Emmeline wore a padded black jacket over black leggings and black ankle boots, and she had a protective helmet covering her head.
Christian seemed to struggle to keep up with his own child possibly due to the weight he's put on for his current role.

The star has virtually transformed himself into a paunchy balding man for the 1970s era drama that also stars Amy Adams.
Fortunately Sibi is very tolerant of Christian's diverse role playing.
'I have a very strong wife,' Christian has said proudly of Sibi. 'She's incredibly strong and feisty, she does not take any nonsense, and I love it!'
