Christian Bale Not Worried About Chinese Censorship

Christian Bale has said that he isn't worried about the Chinese censoring his new movie, The Flowers of War.

The movie is about the Japanese army's 1937 rampage through Nanjing.

Bale said:

"I just do what I do. What happens after I'm wrapped is always out of my hands. It doesn't matter which country that's in, which scenes get chosen, which scenes get cut, that has nothing to do with me."

True. We guess once everything is done, an actor can only hope they did their best and that everyone else doesn't screw anything up.

The film's dialogue is split between english and mandarin, and Bale even needed a translator to work with the director, Zhang.

Bale said:

"I have a great sense of adventure, and whatever adventure I can take out of moviemaking, I'm going to.

So I hope that not just with China but with internationally that we'll start to get much more mixing of nationalities and film cultures. And I think we're going to get some really interesting results from that."

We'll be interested to see if there is a huge difference between the Chinese and English versions of the film.

    He's a decent actor but another actor that has the worse personality and a horrid temper. He is a meanie. I know he is married but I get a gay vibe from him too.

    It will be interesting to see China's response, but even more interesting to see the response from Japan. The Japan occupation of China in the 30's and 40's was incredibly brutal, and something that the west knows little about. We all know about the holocaust, but what happened to the Chinese at the hands of the Japanese was equally horrible.

    What the Japanese did to the Chinese was absolutely atrocious, and I can't imagine why the Chinese would want to censor that. They tend to censor things in their favour, but this film will probably already do that for them, if it actually is a historically accurate film. I studied this event when I was at university, and the complete disregard the Japanese had for human life is completely unfathomable.

    Christian Bale is a good actor but is such a douche bag totally arrogant, he's so far up his own ass.
