Well, did you hear the one about the mouth going off on set? Christian Bale absolutely lost it while filming a scene recently. The clip can be heard in all its stomach-churning glory here. Warning: very bad language, and while I’m usually pretty immune to the occasional (even frequent) F-bomb, this is distressing because he’s dropping them on a pretty defenceless guy. Even if he screwed up, this is majorly ridiculous.
Apparently it’s not the first time either. I’ve long been a fan of Bale’s, obviously the best Batman ever (which maybe isn’t saying too much), but he’s also great in Reign of Fire (and ripped), and I even appreciate his crazy role in American Psycho. My respect for an actor doesn’t transcend his role as a real-life human being. This guy is a freakin’ American Psycho.
And I don’t think I’ll support him anymore. (Which sucks cause I was just about to buy the new Batman – now I know why it hasn’t happened yet). Grow up Christian. Get help if you need it. Until then, here’s hoping directors have the cajones to keep you off their sets.
