Christian Bale Meltdown

Audio tape just surfaced of Bale having an over-the-top shit fit because some unfortunate DP accidentally walked into the shot. The irony is as Bale is screaming about unprofessionalism and the DP being an amateur he's unprofessionally wasting precious time by ranting on & on & on. Jackass.

This is comedy Gold. Andy Kaufman at his finest couldn't beat this. Wait, you mean it's real? Well, that's pretty weird.

More and more it seems like Bale is a gigantic dick head.

I mean, Russell Crowe is looking at him and going, "What an asshole."

Re: Christian Bale Meltdown

As I said in the thread on this in Sci-Fi/Fantasy this isn't the first time he had an outburst on the Terminator set. Around the time when TDK was released her flipped out on a production assistant and went as far as demanding that the Assistant be fired or he'd walk off the set. But all the stories about it were quickly pushed under the rug and ignored.

Oops. The above audio is the edited version. Here's Bale getting all "I'm gonna kick your ass." Absolutely brilliant to humilate a DP and by extension his crew like that.

It happens all the time on movie sets.
And Bale has actually always been somewhat open about the fact that he can be like this.

Admitting that you can be an asshole doesn't make it okay when you are one.

What I wonder is where was McG during all this? This is his set. The director is the highest voice of authority during filming. So what was he doing? Sitting there wondering "Gee, maybe I should say something?"

McG can be heard in the clip...well, the link in the Sci/Fi Fant thread, anyway...admitting he didn't see what happened and trying to diffuse the situation and calm Bale down. Bale is responding to McG when he says, "No! I don't wanna' take a walk!"

Re: Christian Bale Meltdown

Is this actually a new event? From what I can tell this seems to just be a delayed-release tape of the previous incident.

Why are there two threads for this? Is this one for the Little Women/Empire of the Sun/Captain Corelli's Mandolin/The New World/Rescue Dawn crowd, and the other one's for the Batman Begins/Equilibrium/Terminator Salvation/Reign of Fire/The Prestige crowd?

There's a thread in two seperate forums. Not all that uncommon around events that concern actors/people who's work spans various areas.

He's an actor in various films -hence the thread here- and an actor in the Batman movies and the upcomming Terminator movie -hence his thread over in Skiffy.

Not unusual.
