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.

Bale,
You have anger management issues. You need help and it makes the accusations about your violent behavior toward your mother and sister more believable.
If I were producing your film I would file a report, demand drug testing for possible roid rage among other things and terminate your contract.
You lack self-control, empathy and a chin.
If your director had any balls he would have rapped the scene and told everyone to clear the set. Your just an actor and you have no respect for the profession.
Last but not least, your acting blows, seriously, it pretty much sucks.

he had a right to be mad but no right to freak out like that. this is the same guy who got arrested for threatening his own mother & sister.

I don't see what the big deal is... I'm sure he just said what most people say behind other people's backs at ANY job. Come on, you now you've ranted about some dumbass at work before. I thought it was pretty damn awesome.

I remember when Dark Knight came out there was a thing where he got arrested for assaulting his mother or something. At the time I didn't believe it, I thought the mom was looking for some cash. But now I kinda believe it. He was totally gonna kick that guys ass just because the guy walked somewhere he wasn't supposed to be. On a movie set the producers and the directors are the bosses, the actors are just hired help. High paid help, but he's still an employee like the DP. If I was at work and one of my co-workers threatened to kick my ass because I ate their yogurt or something, you would say I shouldn't have ate their yogurt but they were still out of line. Bale was way out of line. I always thought he was one of the nice ones, but he's just as douchey as the rest.

OMG, I don't know who I feel more sorry for,,Christian Bale or the poor guy on the receiving end of that rant. I mean to react in that way to something that (for normal people) is annoying at best, is kinda sad actually. Even with all of his megabucks, talent, and good (ish) looks, IT MUST SUCK TO BE CHRISTIAN BALE!!
