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.

Good grief Christian!
What language. I have listened to how you treat people ,and let me say I will NEVER pay to see you in another movie.
You acted like a child and you should have been fired! The movie is going to be a miserable failure just because KARMA is a bit*H.

Wow, I've loved Christian for years so I am so shocked and disappointed he did that. Apparently the guy did say he was sorry at the beginning because Christian said something to the effect of "I don't care if you're sorry". That's quite a tirade and yeah it was probably a pain in the ass if some guy messed up the shot but it is NEVER ok to treat someone like that especially considering he isn't even the boss. Wow Christian, my respect for you just took a severe nose-dive.

Kudos to the audio department, at least someone on set was doing their job correctly (unfortunate for mister Bale)

This would be hilarious if it didn't actually happen to some poor guy on set. Christian, I have two words for you "Anger Management". Sheesh!

First off, it is completely obvious that this audio clip is "out of context". From what i can gather, this is not the first time this has happened with the individual, so maybe the first, second , and third time he had asked the lighting guy to be careful, and the fourth time he f-ed up, he lost it. Anyhow great rant, a little over done, but i still give it a b+. all of you who think hes a prick for this are a bunch of p*$$ies.

Bale is officially LOONEY. I will boycott ALL Bale movies from now on. He's never getting a dimeof mine again.

Who does the think he is? HE PRETENDS TO BE OTHER PEOPLE FOR A LIVING! How important can he be? What a complete moron. What an empty shell of a human being. What a vacuous egomaniac. And the same goes for any woman who would ever date or marry him knowing this about him.

What an absolute SHAME.

His apology should be just as public.
