Christian Bale Rant

Bale Went Ballistic

2/2/2009 8:11 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

WARNING: THIS AUDIO CONTAINS GRAPHIC LANGUAGE

You may remember that Christian Bale went nuts on the set of "Terminator Salvation" a few months back, threatening to stop production and beat some serious ass.

The incident was audiotaped, and it's amazing. It happened on the set after a director of photography accidentally ruined a scene by walking onto the set. Bale lost it, screaming, yelling and threatening to quit if the bosses didn't fire the dude.

Film execs sent the tape to the insurance company that insured the film in case Bale bailed.

Oh wow. I don't know what to say. Except, so Gene, he's an artist...so it gives him the right to treat other people like crap who make mistakes? That's bull. I've never seen a Christian Bale flick and now I never want to. He's a jerk.

What I don't understand is that Christian Bale is English and he was not speaking with his accent. Something does not seem right.

Talk about unprofessional! He should never be cast in another film again. Why would ANY crew people ever respect him again? He htinks he is the single most important person on that set and he IS NOT! This horribly self-absorbed human being should be ashamed of himself and should be embarrassed to ever show his face in public.

Scenes are filmed over and over and over again for editing purposes. It doesn't matter if that take was ruined. That behavior is inexcusable. That is not professional at all.

this man deserves an oscar for "best performance from a grown man impersonating a child who just had his binki taken from his mouth." bravo! meanwhile back in realityville, the rest of the population went back to work, thankful that their bosses were nothing like this actor - oops, performance.

What a total PRICK Christian is for yelling like that at that guy. I'm sure on a movie set where multiple people are doing different things all at one time, mistakes are bound to happen. And yes, even the best of people can make the same mistake more than once. If they guy was screwing up that bad, he should have just gone to his boss instead of humiliating him and screaming at him in front of everyone.
