This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
Well, HE doesn't!
At the premiere of Exodus at the Brooklyn Museum over the weekend, Christian was asked about that now infamous quote from WSJ magazine.
"I was scratching my head when I heard that. I said, ‘When on earth would I had said that?' I've got immense respect for him and I can't even begin to imagine the invasion of his privacy. Our lives don't even begin to compare. He's a true movie star. I'm just somebody who was lucky to get a job. So, yeah, it was possibly just a well-intentioned edit. But certainly, I never meant any disrespect whatsoever."
Did WSJ just make quotes up so their magazine would sell? Or is Christian Bale trying to cover his well-proportioned butt??
He certainly claims cluelessness pretty well!
