Christian Bale Doing What Christian Bale Does Best.

Tell us how you REALLY feel, bb!

Ha!

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:

On acting:

"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]."

On fame:

"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!

LOLz!

Thoughts??

  2. 2

    I like him. =)



  3. 3

    he sounds like a douche…but at the same time he sounds like a really interesting guy.



  4. 4

    I worship Christian Bale.



  5. 5

    For some reason, I was wildly turned on reading this. People just toss the word "fierce" around right now, it is so irretrievably tacky and it sucks because this is fierceness right here. He's so ruthless and reckless and big and smart but completely irrational and out control in the sexiest of ways. Holy geeze, I'd love to get sleazy with him. Don't knock him, he's just expressing himself. All that and a hot bod to boot? I'm not complaining, I've seen him full frontal, he's a total Adonis!

    LOL I thought Christian Bale was good at being an angry asshole xD



  7. 7

    wow. refreshing. this makes me like him even more than i already did! god he is hot. he tells it like it is.

    CC



  8. 8

    why…did…i like him after that? that was refreshing.



  9. 9

    Christian Bale can say and do anything he wants. He has more talent in his little finger than 99.9% of these so called actors…love, love, love him…I worship at his manly alter!

    What a great, honest interview. Oh and… DOUBLES!!

    as i'm the reading the interview, i keep imagining Christian Bale using his Patrick Bateman character from American Psycho, giving this interview…super weird.

    "I have all the characteristics of a human being: blood, flesh, skin, hair; but not a single, clear, identifiable emotion, except for greed and disgust. Something horrible is happening inside of me and I don't know why. My nightly bloodlust has overflown into my days. I feel lethal, on the verge of frenzy. I think my mask of sanity is about to slip. " -Patrick Bateman

    Wow, that interview was quite refreshing. Sometimes it's so irritating listening to these actors ramble on about "their craft" and how they feel about the character they're playing. Geez people, you make a butt load of money to stand where you're told, recite the words someone else wrote and you deliver the lines the way someone else tells you to deliver them so I wish they would stop making it out to be more than it is. Actors have it SO much easier than those in the music industry. Timberlake was smart enough to figure that out!! Kinda makes you laugh your a** off at the Sharon Stones and Gwyneth Paltros, doesn't it?



  13. 13

    i wish he would just shut up



  14. 14

    It's refreshing for a celeb to not take acting seriously. Actors play make believe for a living and get their a#ses kissed…and get paid millions for it. It's all pretty silly if you think about it. Also, I love him.

    Re: lala44 – you're about the only one…………this man is incredible………

    here's the problem. Reading Christian Bale interviews just show that he despises his fans. He's so full of himself and self-loathing that I really wonder why he's been stuck in Patrick Bateman mode all this time. He's p*ssing and sh*tting on his fans and laughing all the way to the bank. Anyone who is fortunate enough to have a career making movies needs to realize that he sorta needs to appreciate his audience, n'est pas?



  17. 17

    I love him like he is I mean he is such a great guy and an excellent actor, i would love to work with him :)



  18. 18

    I would love to fuck him!

    I just love this guy. He's got an awesome attitude. He doesn't take Hollywood too seriously, like most famous people do. He speaks his mind in interviews instead of giving the usual bullshit answers we've heard a million times from other actors. And he's incredibly hot.



  20. 20

    Ok!! Christian! I like you in Most/Some of the movies you have been in and I have watched (except Batman) but if being an Actor is SOOOOO Wussy for YOU; then don't bother doing the job! You got your money and we "regular" people DO NOT want to spend ONE MORE PENNY to support your choice of employment! HMMMM….Let me state a TRUTH>>>Michael Keaton IS BATMAN!!!! You are too old to be so pompus!
