Christian Bale Really Wanted To Do His Own Stunts In “The Fighter”

“I just got up there and I went, ‘I’m jumping’ … I’ve jumped from three-story buildings in my own life after bad parties and stuff. The insurance came around … and they were just begging me not to.”

Christian Bale says he was annoyed that he wasn’t allowed to do his own stunts in “The Fighter” because of insurance concerns. He does have a point. I mean, he did lose an insane amount of weight to play aging boxer/crackhead Dicky Eklund, which isn’t the healthiest thing ever. On the other hand, uh, when did he jump out of a third floor window?

Shun, Shag, Or Marry: Angry Actors Edition

A lot of women are attracted to powerful jerks, perhaps in hopes that they’ll be mean to everyone but them. But there’s a thin line between anger issues and outright abuse. And while some men take it out on the paparazzi and cops, others take it out on their wives and family. It’s about time these men know we won’t stand for it, which is why we will objectify them with a little game we like to call Shun, Shag, or Marry: Angry Actors Edition. Keep reading »

Tom Cruise Inspired Christian Bale In “American Psycho”?

Who can forget Christian Bale’s haunting portrayal of yuppie serial killer Patrick Bateman in “American Psycho”? I swear, after I saw that movie, I went out on a date with a hot Wall Street suit-and-tie who told me he was a Genesis fan. I bolted out of the restaurant, convinced that he was planning to dissect me and play with my blood. In a recent Blackbook interview, “American Psycho” director Mary Harron revealed Christian’s true inspiration for the role was … none other than our favorite Scientologist, Tom Cruise. She says, “We talked about how Martian-like Patrick Bateman was, how he was looking at the world like somebody from another planet, watching what people did and trying to work out the right way to behave. And then one day he called me and he had been watching Tom Cruise on ‘David Letterman,’ and he just had this very intense friendliness with nothing behind the eyes, and he was really taken with this energy.”

Thank you, Christian. I’ve had a sneaking suspicion for a while that Tom is really an alien. Hey, you don’t get to be a higher-up in The Church of Scientology for nothing. After the jump, some more celebrities that have used other stars as inspiration for roles. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Christian Bale: From Pac-Man To Batman

Before he was Patrick Bateman, or Batman, or that questionably unsexy temper tantrum throwing douche that we know and love, Christian Bale had a thing for Pac-Man shaped cereal. Luckily he was adorable back then, so posting this ’80s commercial probably won’t make him mad. [Copyranter] Keep reading »
