Man, I wouldn’t want to work with THAT guy!

So Christian Bale is a douche, aye?


I’m sure you’ve all heard that Bale wigged out on the set of Terminator: Salvation, right? (You can hear the full wig out here. The original TMZ posting is here.)

It’s no secret that actors can be assholes sometimes. Remember Russell Crowe throwing that telephone at a hotel employee? Or how about Lily Tomlin’s explosion(s) on the set of “I ❤ Huckabees”? (Oh, and here’s another of Tomlin.)

Whatever. Shit happens, right? As long as these movies fucking rock and the actors give it 110%, I could care less if they’re pricks in real life. “Gladiator” was so badass that I wouldn’t care if Crowe beat my ass with a telephone….or hell, even a crowbar. Who cares what they’re like in real life. I think people that refuse to watch Tom Cruise movies because he jumped on Oprah’s couch and became a looney Scientologist are just as stupid as the actors themselves.

That said, however – I am glad that we have things like YouTube and other amazing (Disclaimer – I’m not calling TMZ “amazing”) Internet sites that can expose these jerks for who they really are. It doesn’t bother me that Bale freaked out. It doesn’t bother (or surprise me, for that matter) that Bale appears to be an asshole. I just feel really, really bad for the guy he was yelling at. Bale’s all lecturing him on professionalism and then proceeds to berate this dude in front of an entire set of cast and crew (oh, and THE WORLD)!? So the guy was a little distracting while you were shooting! B-O-O-H-O-O. Couldn’t this have been settled with a nice little sit down? Perhaps a brief chat at the catering table?

DUDE. BALE. You’re the only one with something to lose here! Cuz those same people that are boycotting freaky-deaky-Cruise won’t hesitate to pull that same BS on you.

I’ll probably go see “Terminator: Salvation” when it comes out, but I’m not quite certain if it’ll entertain me more than hearing Bale make a complete asshole out of himself for the entire world to see. Congratulations, Chris. YOU DID IT!

  1. That Industrial Dance Remix of his rant is just priceless.
