Christian

Went Bale-istic

on T4 Set

7/22/2008 9:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0722_christian_bale_ex_tmz_03Christian Bale was one giant raw nerve days before he allegedly pushed his mother.

TMZ spies tell us Bale was on the set last Friday shooting "Terminator 4" at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico.

During a scene, Shane Hurlbut (seriously), director of cinematography, screwed up a shot -- at least in Christian's mind. We're told Bale went wild, screaming "I will kick your ass" along with some other choice remarks. Several hundred people -- including Military Police -- heard the outburst, which was described as "intense."

We're told Bale was "extremely tired and having a bad day."

Here is a little light over what really happened, and it is so, so sad because instead of helping him trough this times his family makes it even worse for him by going to the police!

“Batman star Christian Bale allegedly assaulted his mother and sister after becoming depressed over strains in his marriage and the death of close friend Heath Ledger, it was claimed last night.”
”
“A source close to Bale said the incident comes at a time when his marriage to Sandra ‘Sibi’ Blazic, a former model and make-up artist, is enduring difficulties.”

“The source also claimed Bale had been deeply affected by the death from a drugs overdose of Ledger, who plays The Joker in the Batman film The Dark Knight.”

‘Christian’s attitude is that this was his mother’s fault because she became very provocative in an argument they were having,’ the source said. ‘Things got out of control and he says now he wishes he just left the room.

‘The thing that happened here was that normally Christian would just call a friend and go out to a pub to cool off. But he was literally trapped into this confrontation with his mother and sister because there was an army of fans and paparazzi outside.

‘He was feeling the stress, but he didn’t lay a finger on anyone. Instead, he flew off the handle and cussed his mother. He just got very loud because his mother was saying some very outrageous things about him, his wife and his child.’

The source added: ‘His marriage is not perfect, but his relationship with his mother is in much more trouble.”

Here is the whole read:

So what are you saying TMZ? Did he tell his mom he was going to kick her ass and then pushed her?

Leave Christian alone, his mother and sister are probably jealous and want some limelight for themselves. He's probably supported them since he started in the business at the age of 12 or 13. He's had nothing but nice things to say about Heath and he's very humble. If you have nothing nice to say then say nothing. He's a great actor and will be around for a long,long time.

UGH    

Well lets see. You are a public figure. You are under a microscope for every move you make. Your personal life is all over cheap magazines (ie: People/US/etc) You are at the world premier of the largest grossing movie ever and your good friend / co-worker who helped make this the best movie ever has sadly passed away. Now: how would YOU be reacting? He's only human. Give the dude a break!
