Man, don't fuck with Christian Bale!

Recommended Posts


Listen to the audio! Man, does this guy have issues or what? Didn't he get in trouble for beatin' up his mom months ago or something?

That was a fucking brilliant melt down! He also obviously has little to no respect for McG as a director b/c he's obviously trying to calm him down and Bale is having none of it. Not sure why Bale doesn't realize they could just CGI the DP outta the scene either. Defintely serious anger issues. I don't see this guy ever on the convention circuit.


Fanboy: Excuse me Mr. Bale. Would you please sign my Batpod

Bale: What the fuck is your problem!

Fanboy: Sorry, I was jus...

Bale: NO! Don't be fucking sorry. I'm going to kick your fucking ass! Have you any fucking idea how distracting it is? This is the 2nd time you've walked by. Can't you see I'm trying to ignore your existence? You don't know what it's like to work with actors!

You know, that whole situation back with his mom or whatever threw up a red flag for me. I mean, duh, but I just tried to ignore it. Tried to put it outta my mind, but never completely could. I really like the guy, you know!? Now this happens and now I think he's just a pre-madona. Like he's just a pussy with a big mouth. Russell Crowe does the same kinda shit, but he still seems like a badass to me. Bale... not so much...


I'm actually hurt by this...

Transcript in case its removed.


“I want you off the f***ing set, you pr***,” Bale reportedly says at the start of the audio recording, which TMZ reported was sent by the film’s executives to their insurance company in case the actor didn’t finish filming the movie.


“I’m sorry,” Hurlbut reportedly replies.


“No, don’t just be sorry. Think for one f***king second,” Bale reportedly shouts. “What the f*** are you doing? Are you a professional or not?”


The man said to be Bale appears to grow angrier as Hurlbut replies to him in a calm tone, “Yes, I am.”


“No, no. Am I gonna f***ing rip your lights down in the middle of the scene? Then why the f***are you walking right through, ‘Duh-duh-duh-duh-duh,’ in the background,” the man said to be Bale, sing-songs. “What the f*** is it with you? What the f*** don’t you understand?”


As the audio continues on, a host of unknown parties chime in to cool the man down.


“Take a minute,” an unknown male on the set says.


“You got any f***ing idea about… Hey, it’s f***ing distracting having somebody walking up behind Bryce [Dallas Howard] in the middle of the f***ing scene,” Bale reportedly continues. “Give me a f***ing answer. What don’t you get about it?”


As Bale reportedly appears to grow angrier, he turns his attention to “Terminator: Salvation” director McG, who is known by his cast and crew as simply G.


“Look G,” Bale reportedly says, “You got f***ing something to say to this pr***?”


“I didn’t see it happen,” a voice believed to be that of McG responds coolly.


“Well, somebody should be f***ing watching him and keeping an eye on him,” Bale reportedly states.


Bale reportedly goes on to claim that the interruption is the second of its kind and is tough on him as an actor.


“I’m trying to do a f***ing scene here and I’m going, why the f*** is Shane walking in there. What’s he doing there? Do you understand my mind is not in the scene if you’re doing that,” Bale reportedly says.


“I absolutely apologize. I did not mean anything by it,” Hurlbut reportedly states.


Bale reportedly then warns Hurlbut to stay out of sight, before ordering the scene to begin again. An unknown party, however, suggests they instead, “take a minute.”


Later, when the man said to be Hurlbut attempts to explain why he wandered into Bale’s area of view on set, the actor appears to grow even angrier.


“I’m gonna f***ing kick your f***ing ass,” Bale reportedly says as a host of unknown parties attempt to calm him down


“I’m gonna, do you want me to go and trash your lights?” Bale reportedly continues with a raised voice. “Do you want me to go and trash them? Then why are you trashing my scene?”


“I’m not trying to trash your--,” Hurlbut reportedly begins to respond before being interrupted.


“You are trashing my scene. You do it one more f***ing time and I ain’t walking on the set if you’re still hired. I’m serious. I’m f***ing serious,” Bale reportedly states. “You’re a nice guy, you’re a nice guy, but that won’t f***ing cut it when you’re bulls******ng and f***ing around like this on set.”


“Seriously, you and me man, we’re f***ing done professionally,” Bale reportedly adds as the tape ends.

This is the best thing I've seen come out of Terminator Salvation yet! Well he's had his freakout, next comes the gay controversy, the freaky religion, and in five years time he's going to be jumping up and down like a five-year-old hopped up on cocaine on Oprah screaming "I'm in love with Katie Holmes!"

I mean, to be fair, this rant came at the end of a very long problem-plagued day of shooting, and it's likely he got interrupted during an intense scene (as I'm sure many Terminator scenes would be) and it's hard for many actors to turn that intensity off once they've gotten there. I'm not saying the guy didn't act like a prick, because he certainly did, I'm just saying he lost his temper after a bad day - something I think a lot of us can relate to.


Also, for the record, "strolling a-fuckin'-round in the background" is kinda amusing, as is the fact that the longer he stays angry, the more his accent slips in.

Firstly, I mirror DJ's sentiment. It's quite possible he's just at the end of his rope after a long day of dealing with unprofessional crap. Secondly, I tend to forgive geniuses for their insanity. You need to go to another place to be as good an actor as Bale, and you can't take all your marbles with you on your way there.

looks like panchy renewed his subscription to people magazine!


big who cares. its like when the joker offed himself, and people were talking like they knew the guy or cared about his plight. these are entertainers! you're most surprised when they're not douchey prima donnas!

if he can somehow channel something closer to kevin conroy by the next bats film, i dont rightly care if he has to kick 3 puppies for every 10 seconds of such a performance, personally.
