I've heard he's actually pretty cool and the director of the movie was being somewhat of a jackass himself


Yeh, supposedly he is a really nice and down to earth guy. He hates the spotlight and the Hollywood lifestyle.

I just find him very unlikeable. That worked very well for the character in American Psycho


I thought he was hilariously likeable in American Psycho

Yeah like visiting victims of the shooting in Aurora kind of douchebag. I"m sure he's the only actor to ever have a freakout on set. Just so happened it was recorded and played for the masses.


Yeah, exactly. By all other accounts, he's a good dude. Keeps to himself, is a married man of 13 years, and clearly loves what he does and working with other talented actors. I'd have freaked out on the set of Terminator Salvation, too, because I would have known, as I'm sure he did, that movie would be a steaming pile of ass. He must have been replaying in his mind over and over again: "Just remember the huge check you got. Just remember the huge check you got."

was the freakout not douchey? and this:

She thinks he’s tedious, arrogant and a disgrace to the acting profession… Christian’s need for perfection and to be the center of attention is causing the shoot to drag on forever.

Whatever though, judging an actors movies based off their personality in real life is stupid anyway.


im not judging his acting based on his real personality. i simply said "he's a huge douchebag irl, apparently" with two points

Christian Bale: Am I going to walk around and rip your ------- lights down, in the middle of a scene? Then why the ---- are you walking right through? Ah-da-da-dah, like this in the background. What the ---- is it with you? What don't you ------- understand? You got any ------- idea about, hey, it's ------- distracting having somebody walking up behind Bryce in the middle of the ------- scene? Give me a ------- answer! What don't you get about it?

Shane Hurlbut: I was looking at the light.

Bale: Ohhhhh, goooood for you. And how was it? I hope it was ------- good, because it's useless now, isn't it?

Hurlbut: OK.

Bale: ----- sake man, you're amateur. McG, you got ------- something to say to this prick?

Director Joseph 'McG' McGinty Nichol: I didn't see it happen.

Bale: Well, somebody should be ------- watching and keeping an eye on him.

McG: Fair enough.

Bale: It's the second time that he doesn't give a ---- about what is going on in front of the camera, all right? I'm trying to ------- do a scene here, and I am going "Why the ---- is Shane walking in there? What is he doing there?" Do you understand my mind is not in the scene if you're doing that?

Hurlbut: I absolutely apologise. I'm sorry, I did not mean anything by it.

Bale: Stay off the ------- set man. For ----- sake. Alright, let's go again.

McG: Let's just take a minute.

Bale: Let's not take a ------- minute, let's go again.

Bale: I'm going to ------- kick your ------- arse if you don't shut up for a second! All right?

Unknown voices: Christian, Christian. It's cool.

Bale: I'm going to go... Do you want me to ------- go trash your lights?
Do you want me to ------- trash 'em? Then why are you trashing my scene?

Hurlbut: I'm not trying to trash your scene.

Bale: You are trashing my scene!

Hurlbut: Christian, I was only...

Bale: You do it one more ------- time and I ain't walking on this set if you're still hired. I'm ------- serious. You're a nice guy. You're a nice guy, but that don't ------- cut it when you're ------- around like this on set.



pretty arrogant if you ask me

If that's the worse thing he's ever done, he's in the top 15% of humans.

The 2nd director of photography kept walking into the shot while they were filming a scene. Which apparently kept happening more than once. It was a very intense scene from what I understand and he kept having to stop because the guy kept interrupting.

Sounds more angry than arrogant to me. I'd be pissed to if someone repeatedly made my job harder for me.

re: Christian Bale, going forward


from the transcript, it was the second time.

id be mad too, but to keep insulting him and refuse to accept the apologies is pretty boorish.

i cant say the guy's a douchebag because i dont know him. im just saying that it sure seems that way based off of this and portman's comments. just doesnt seem like a level headed guy, professionally.

may be a totally different story outside of the industry. all of the negative stuff seems to happen during shooting

I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree.

As far as Natalie's comments. She's had things to say about other actors and their methods. Sounds like she might have some on set issues herself.
