We have a feeling that Christian will NOT agree with this!
Last week while Christian Bale was in China for the premiere of his new movie The Flowers of War, he traveled eight hours from Beijing to meet Chinese human rights activist/lawyer Chen Guangcheng, but he was aggressively turned away by police (above).
Now, Chinese government spokesman Liu Weimin has spoken up about the incident, and he believes that Christian should feel embarrassed

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!
