Christian Bale is, um, passionate

Christian Bale is somewhere

A few months ago, Christian Bale reportedly went off on a director of photography who accidentally walked through his scene and ruined his take. Bale, being the level headed man that he is, bitched, yelled and threatened to kick his ass. Luckily, a brave soul recorded the tirade for insurance purposes and now everyone gets to hear how big of an asshole Bale is. TMZ explains that this was on the set of Terminator Salvation and that Christian Bale threatened to quit if the DP wasn’t fired.

While I’m sure the DP walking in distracted and invariably ruined Bale’s take, I’m pretty sure this 10 minute diatribe didn’t help.

My favorite part is when Bale doesn’t want to take a minute break and utters a Bill O’Reily-esque, “Let’s go again!”  Listen here or below.

Who knew actors were such whiny assholes. Jesus. Calm down you big baby. This is Terminator Salvation, not Citizen Kane.

Here’s Shane’s, the DP’s, website.

It’s amazing how all of a sudden, several months after the fact, this audio clip mysteriously shows up during the peak of his career. And of cours, everyone and their mother are hating him, boycotting, and calling him all sort of choice words for it. Get over it, people. He’s human. True he made a mistake. A non professional one, but albeit a mistake. So did the DP. And in the audio clip, this wasn’t the first time the DP made this mistake, so I guess he wasn’t all that professional either. CB is an actor, and despite what everyone… Read more »

Give me a break! He’s not all that big in movies to be acting like a jerk! I’ve seen most “passionate actors” as some “understanding” morons call them behave like jerks because they’ve never received a serious a** kicking. I’m certain one day this douche is going to mess with the wrong guy who doesn’t give a hoot about his film cred and give him such an a** whupping that he’ll sh** his pants – I’m certain after that Mr Bale will be his normal, cowardly self again and go back to beating women like he did with his mom… Read more »

Look at you apologizing for this Prima Donna. “He’s human.” Guess what? Humans get fucked over all the time. He’s acting like a child in this clip. A big spoiled baby…I’ll take my ball and go home if you don’t kiss my ass. What was the DP going to do after the fact? go back in time maybe? Fucking actors got it bad. This is the reason I dont hate paps like Perez and TMZ, give these spoiled mega-millionaires a little grief. Fuck em.

So I guess you guys are gonna be boycotting Terminator Salvation in protest, huh? Unlikely.

Don’t make me listen to this clip. I really like Christian Bale and I don’t want to think he’s an asshole. I will enjoy his movies less.

OK, I listened to it. I’m gonna say he was having a bad day for some other reason or his family is suing him or something, and he just went off. Plus, with all the effort and money put into shooting these things, and the fact that your entire reputation is dependent on delivering a line perfectly, I can imagine it would be pretty annoying to have some guy blow a take just by being careless. I pretty much went ballistic on an inexperienced weenie at my company the other day. Anyway, that’s my opinion and I’m stickin’ to it.

Yeah, he is an ***hole in this tape. Maybe he was having a bad day :) lol. God he really needs some anger management classes.

I have to say it makes no difference to me if he is the biggest ***hole in the world. If I like the movies he makes I will go see them, if I don’t like the movie then I don’t. I really don’t understand how people that get so upset about what someone is like personally. I don’t have to like him as a person to like him as an actor.

I’m sick of hearing about a**holes and how they need ‘anger management’ classes. When I was his age, we had our own brand of management class for douches like this …. it was a serious a** kicking! Administered properly, it has amazing results on cowards who beat up weaklings …. I think this moron seems to believe his screen personas, wait till he messes with the wrong guy – won’t be long before this pu**y wets himself ….

That’s right Lisa…a person’s character makes no difference as long as they can satisfy the lust in your heart. You are right on! You go girl! You are smarter than all the posters here combined!

Well, I must say that although he was being ruder than necessary, it seems that it wasn’t the first time this had happened? If it were the first time and the guy apologized then yeah, Bale should have just let it go but being a reoccurring issue it is somewhat understandable.

I can see why his mother had him arrested. At the time all of my sympathy was for him, but after hearing this, I can only imagine what he said to his mother and his sister.

I feel sorry for his wife. he has a temper and explodes all the time, so he must explode at her too. Anyways, what a f#$%king [email protected]$hole! Who tf does he think he is?

He goes on for 3 minutes! Totally unacceptable and abusive behavoir, in my opinion, they should fire him for that.

This is why I don’t see movies anymore, having worked in the Hollywood system. Everyone, on every level, acts as though they are creating a vaccine to cure cancer. This brings back a number of horrible memories. In response to the comment about him “being just human” I have had a lot of people make mistakes that I have been working with and I have NEVER treated them like flotsam. There’s no excuse for being a jerk, no matter how famous or how much pressure you are under. He’s still a talented actor, he’s just also a big fat jerk… Read more »

What an a-hole!!! I wouldn’t expect anyone at my work to speak to me like that if I made one, two or 12 mistakes. I may get fired but never would I let someone speak to me like that. Some of you posters are bit crazy with the whole “he was having a bad day”. So what if he had a bad, that doesn’t give him the right to talk like that to another person. I think it would have been great to hear the DP start kicking his a$$ right on set, he deserved it.

I agree with Whatever, I mean he’s only human what he did was a bit mean but they’re only harsh words people have bad days stress they shouldn’t make that a big deal though

All of that shish was not necessary because if he worked in the real world at an average job like the rest of us then this would not be acceptable at ALL! Grow up Christian!

seriously its not like its tough to make audio edits. And is it seriously more likely that someone would have a fucking tape recorder out rather than a cell phone/video camera? If the world can’t find something to trash people with they create it. I for one am not buying it. At least until I see more proof

Fuck that DP. If he was getting all in my scene I’d fuck him up. Bale was trying to be cool and reason with the fucker and he kept smart mouthing him. As an actor, you put all your energy into the scene and some fucker just gets in it. It’s not like you can just do it over again. The next take might not be the same. You just can’t get into the right frame of mind when you know some fuckhead is disrepecting your work and might walk in the scene again. It’s bad enough he did it… Read more »
