Re: Christian Bale Loses it on Terminator set

The names "Batman! Dance" and "American Psycho sense" are really bizarre. Neither of the movies are mentioned in the transcript. Somewhere along the line, they just swap those for "Christian Bale."

Yeah, it seems like it.

Re: Christian Bale Loses it on Terminator set

The BBC mistakenly aired the complete & unedited unbleeped recording on their usually family-friendly Breakfast News this morning. The female presenter looked shocked at the mistake and immediately gave a grovelling apology but there will be many, many complaints I'm sure......

You can count on Colbert to make this ten times more fun:

Make sure to watch until the end.


The interview was pretty good too! That clip from the PP2 actually made it look interesting (though I love physical comedy).

Re: Christian Bale Loses it on Terminator set

I found it hilarious! He really went off on that poor bloke. BTW, he's now apologizing for his rant: http://news.yahoo.com/s/eonline/2009...ovies_eo/98799 -- RR

He doesn't say anything like that in the link.

Re: Christian Bale Loses it on Terminator set

Bale: 'I Acted Like A Punk'
"So many people have opinions on this, but none of them were there. Now, we're making Terminator... Sarah Connor is in an insane asylum. I play John Connor, Sarah Connor's son. Now, on the day that all of this happened, the scene that we were doing, I was trying to show a little of that in the blood craziness. You know what? It went very wrong and for reasons that myself, and Shane... and every crewmember who was in that hanger at Kirkland Air Space (in Washington) that day, they know the reasons, I got annoyed and then what happened, I made it ugly, and that was awful of me. I took it way too far and completely mixed up fact and fiction, I'm half John Connor, half Christian Bale and we've heard what happened."
But he is right: so many of us have opinions on it but the truth is none of us were there.

"I was trying to show a little of that in the blood craziness" isn't quite blaming the John Connor character.

But truthfully its inkeeping with how the character would act.

Re: Christian Bale Loses it on Terminator set

Ah, I think even that is reading too much into it. In Red Ranger's link, there's no question that he blames no one but himself.

He's fessing up, pure and simple. He has the good sense to be embarassed about his loss of control, which was way over the top, so good for him. I sympathize with Bale, as I used to have a pretty bad temper myself, but have mellowed out. Now, I'm just waiting for the ring tone! -- RR

Re: Christian Bale Loses it on Terminator set

Wow! That's pretty classic!

I fully admit that Christian was pretty over the top, and I think he did blow the whole thing out of proportion. But in all honesty there have been plenty of times in my own life when I've felt like blowing my own top over some stupid thing or other, so I can quite readily empathize with Bale all too well. The trouble is, in most people's regular everyday lives, we have to behave with a greater level of civility toward the people who piss us off. But we also have a tendency to give artists, performers and creative people a certain amount of leeway when it comes to...[*ahem*]...expressing themselves! So let's just cop to it: Many of you out there are probably secretly envious of somebody like Christian Bale for their license to just spew venom in such a free and uninhibited manner!

Hey, we all have bad days, right? And in all honesty, what kind of professional D.P. doesn't know enough not to walk into a shot when a performer's trying to put everything they've got into a performance?! "F--king amateur, man!" indeed! I mean, what the hell are we all getting so judgmental about, anyway?! Don't we have anything better to chat about than going on about some actor loudly chewing out some dumbass D.P.?? In all honesty, aren't there at least a hundred other things out there that are worth our attention??

Oh...yeah, that's right. I almost forgot where I was for a moment...
