At least this wasn't as bad as Christian Bale's Terminator: Salvation rant!
During an interview with the Australian edition of Empire Magazine, Bale got pret-ty heated while discussing criticism he's received for his "trademark weight loss" in The Fighter, as well as other films.
Here's what Bale had to say about it:
"To be honest, I find it laughable that it's considered to be some f****** gimmick - it's so patronizing. For God's sake, do people not understand what a pain it is to do? It's as though it's some comment about, 'Oh it's easy for him, because he's done it a bunch of times.' It's not easy, it's not fun - it's horrible."
"I would never pick to do that, but it's a part that I like and he's a welterweight and he's a crackhead. I don't know about you, but I've never seen a welterweight with any fat on him - or a crackhead. So it's just what you end up having to do.
"Somebody told me that somebody wrote something about my "trademark weight loss". I'd just like to p*** on that guy's shoes."
Okay, so urinating on footwear is not the MOST pleasant image, but we agree that it's kind of lame to criticize Bale for losing weight for films.
Bale's appearance DEF made him a more believable crackhead in The Fighter. Our biggest concern would be how such drastic changes in weight might affect his health.
