Tell us how you REALLY feel, bb!
Christian Bale recently gave quite the interview to Esquire Magazine, which once again, proves to the world that the actor certainly has no problem calling it exactly how he sees it!
Here are some HIGHlights:
"Well, it's also just I'm bored shitless with myself."
"I have a very sissy job, where I go to work and get my hair done, and people do my makeup, and I go and say lines and people spoil me rotten. And everyone has that kind of curiosity of how far can you go, how far can you take it. I think it's always good testing yourself. With various things that could be incredibly unimpressive to other people, but there's some meaning to it within yourself — and also stupid, which many people called me during that time [laughs]."
"Well, it's embarrassing to be a star. Most people look at you like, 'That's not a fucking job, is it?' And then on top of that, you learn very quickly that you're just a tool — other people are manipulating everything you do, you're at the mercy of editors, and there's nothing you can do. But I learned that there's a certain character that can be built from embarrassing yourself endlessly. If you can sit happy with embarrassment, there's not much else that can really get to ya."
On his critics:
"I do love people ripping the shit out of me. I don't know what that's about, but I love it. The more crap you give me, the happier I get."
"I've enjoyed interviews so much when the writer has said to me, 'You know what? Not my thing. Didn't like it too much.' I find that endlessly entertaining."
Well, this is a lot tamer than his last 'outburst,' so we'll give him credit for that!
