Christian Bale Gets Into Trouble With Police…In China

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooInspirationChristian BalePerezTV

We're just glad he wasn't badly hurt.

While in China for the premiere of his new movie The Flowers of War, Christian Bale traveled eight hours away from Beijing to meet Chinese human rights activist/lawyer Chen Guangcheng…and it did NOT go as planned.

Guangcheng is currently under house arrest, and he was imprisoned for over four years back in 2006 for "disrupting traffic and damaging property" while campaigning against "forced abortions and the treatment of villagers in China."

When Bale and his CNN camera crew approached Guangcheng's village, a guard told them to go away, and when they didn't immediately comply, Bale was "shoved violently by the dozen guards in olive green military coats." Scary!

Here's what CNN newsman Steven Jiang had to say about it as the incident took place:

"They're pushing Christian here and we're just trying to leave peacefully."

And here's what Bale had to say about it:

"I'm not being brave doing this. The local people are standing up to the authorities and going to visit Chen, and being beaten up for it and detained for it."

"This doesn't come naturally to me but this was just a situation where I thought, 'I can't look the other way. What I really wanted to do is shake the man's hand and say thank you, tell him what an inspiration he is."

Sorry to hear about this, Christian, but thanks for making such a strong effort to support this brave man! Very impressive!

    Err yeah whAt did theY think house arrest meant? Dramatic bitches camping it up for the cameras! The Chinese don't want what the yanks are peddling! Cheap shots all round. Christian Bale (Actor/activist) if you want to be a real activist, get your hands dirty instead of popping in to see someone real while you're promoting your latest flop. Loser, sellout!!!

    They were probably pissed off because he made them all look like chumps in The Dark Knight. Remember when Batman kidnaps the Chinese mob boss in Hong Kong, and brings him back to the US to face charges? Yeah, that was fucking awesome! Go Batman! :)
