    Well I think he's a true professional. It must take a lot of skill to dress up and say a few lines every few minuets that are written down for him. :rotfl:

    Wouldn't it have been funny if, at the part when he sounded like he was heading towards the lighting guy to fight with him, that the other fella had knocked the **** out of him.:clap:

    i really used to like Christian Bale and i liked him in Batman but he seems to be the main guy in a lot of new reboot franchises including Terminator.

    There's also talk of him being in the new Metal Gear Solid film.

    Just too much Bale for me

    Oh dear, I didn't realise actors who got paid millions of dollars were subjected to so much stress. Shameful Mr Bale, shameful.

    Oh great, the one actor I have always had respect for (The Machinist/American Psycho et al) and he seems to display the same prima donna tendencies as the rest of them.
    God damn you Internet <shakes fist>

    Don't see a problem with it myself, why does he have to be nice person to be a good actor ? Frank Sinatra was a pretty good singer by all accounts but he was'nt always sunshine and smiles.

    I bet the lighting dude doesn't do it again lol

    Although if the lighting bloke had anything about him he would have knocked Bale the **** out !

    Never rate him anyway. I'd have laughed in his face had he spoken to me this way..

    Think it was the Director of Photography, not a lighting guy.

    More odd is Bale's accent. What the hell is wrong with him? Is to too ashamed to be British? I have seen him in interviews where he only speaks in an american accent.
    Well, he still doesn't sound american. What a prat.

    A lot of artists I admire are rather flawed characters and I think it's best to keep artisitic achivements and somebody's personality or private life apart. This is a society obsessed with gossip and everybody seems very keen to judge and opine on people they don't really know much about. I don't know what's going on in Chritian Bales life and what lead to this and it doesn't really interest me either. I think he's a fantastic actor and this won't change anything for me in that regard.

    I dunno' with that accent it sounded like he had either just wanted to stay in character for the next take, or it was a joke. It sounded acted to me.

    Threatening a guy with violence and loss of employment, and having the clout to do the latter because he walked on to the set is harsh. Telling him his a ****ing idiot… fair enough. I agree he is a quality actor and this in no way is going to stop me wanting to watch his movies. Just puts him in the list of talented but ultimately up their own arse actors.

    amen to that, ive lost my rag a few times at work thankfully the next day i apologised and forgot about it, difference with this is it was caught on film and now everyone assumes he's an A1 prick.... he's entitled to off days like the rest of us in my opinion.

    Bale was furious at Shane Hurlbut, the director of photography for "Terminator Salvation"

    Hurl Butt sounds like a pun! :D

    I like Aint-it-cool-news's take on it. They've done a big report on why they're not reporting on it and then go on to tell us the 'real' story because Harry Knowles says:

    "I know this because I happen to be somewhere where someone that was there that day and for the shoot is."

    If you can make sense of that, let me know.

    And goes on to explain that:

    "The scene in question, was a very emotional and tough scene between Christian Bale and Bryce Howard. A scene that required soul bearing and a deep level of immersive concentration. .....Bale was in the midst of a painful scene with Bryce, what was described to me as being the emotional center of the film and his character for the film."

    Completely forgetting that this is a Terminator film being directed by McG, the man who gave us Fastlane, Charlies Angels 1 & 2 and Pussycat Dolls: The Search for the Next Doll :rotfl:

    I'd be sacked if I swore anywhere near this level at work.
