Who’s Your Favorite Batman In Cinema?

Ben Affleck as Batman really doesn’t sound appealing, I know. But with "Batman vs. Superman" in post-production and guaranteed for release next year, it seems like a really good time to reflect on the Ghosts of Batmen Past, doesn’t it? Editor Jacob Swinney put together this compendium of Batman in Cinema, from Lewi…

Watch Conan Give Himself “American Hustle” Hair

Am I the only who didn't love "American Hustle"? [Nope! Oveeeeeraaaaaated. -- Amelia] Thankfully, Conan O'Brien gave me a reason to like the movie when he showed us his own take on its opening scene at the MTV Movie Awards.

You’ll Never Guess Martha Stewart’s Celebrity Crush

"I have lots of crushes, I love having crushes. But lately I think it's Christian Bale. I just watched 'American Psycho,' where he looks really good. And then I watched his new movie, 'American Hustle,' where he looks really bad. He had to get a potbelly for 'American Hustle,' so that would have been a…

10 Celeb Couples That Might Have Been

Drew Barrymore just got married for the third time -- to art dealer Will Kopelman -- and has a long dating history in Hollywood. But I was totally surprised to learn she once went on a date with Christian Bale (pre-"Dark Knight" and well-known rage issues). "We…

Christian Bale’s Ex-Assistant Pens Tell-All Book

Christian Bale's ex-assistant and publicist Harrison Cheung has published a tell-all book about the actor filled with all sorts of wack information, like how Bale allegedly once suggested they kill a fan who was bothering him at his home.

Oscar Theory #11: Whoever Wins The BAFTA Gets The Oscar

When it comes to the acting awards at the year's Oscars, it looks things could get very British. No, not because the world has gone mad over Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding. Because Brit Colin Firth looks like an almost shoe-in to win Best Actor for his performance in "The King's Speech,"…

The 2011 SAG Awards: The 7 Most Surprising Moments

The Screen Actors Guild Awards are best known for being, well, the awards show that happens between the Golden Globes and the Oscars. But, it has a good reputation for being a predictor of who will win at the latter, which is why we watch even though awards season can get overwhelming. Luckily,…

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 i…

You probs know him as "Batman," but his favorite crime fighters are lil ladies. Namely, Christian Bale hearts "The Powerpuff Girls." So do we! Sigh, that's just one more thing we have in common, hot stuff. Anyway, here he is demonstrating why he is a good contender for dad of the year, singing…

Christian Bale Joins The Fighting The Hot Club

Oh Christian Bale. I knew the famously temperamental actor had to go a bit fugs for his upcoming role in "The Fighter," but what's his excuse for this '90s mane-and-goatee combo? Patrick Bateman, I miss you.

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…

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…

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]…

Quick Pic: Lighten Up, Kelly!

Kelly Osbourne looked like a Debbie Downer at the "Terminator Salvation" premiere last night. Could her new hairdo be teaching her that blonds don't really have more fun? If there's anyone who could turn that frown upside down, it's gotta be the flick's butt-kicking stud of a star, Christian Bale. [Hollywood, 5/14/09]…

Quickies!: Salma Hayek Will End World Hunger, Christian Bale Was Just Having A Bad Day

Don't expect to see Salma Hayek in any movies anytime soon unless she's able to breastfeed because the actor is addicted. She recently breastfed a starving baby in Sierra Leone whose mother was unable to provide milk. We think it's cool that Hayek, who is a UNICEF activist, is willing to help in any way…

Celebrity Men Who Were Hot Until They Opened Their Mouths

As we all know, TMZ has treated us to the audio of the f-bomb tirade Christian Bale launched on a director of photography while filming "Terminator Salvation." We found Bale's rant to be rather unprofessional...and unbelievable. We didn't realize he could be such a douche bag, which got us thinking about…

The Hotness Awards: Hottest Actors

1. Christian Bale Why He Made The List: Yeah, so there's that pesky assault charge that's turning out to be a little overblown. The Dark Knight star is having a bit of a bad week -- until now. In our opinion (okay, mine -- Catherine still prefers Val Kilmer), Bale is the best Batman, but…

Christian Bale Accused Of Assault: Batman Don’t Make Us Quit You

So yeah. Batman. The Caped Crusader. The Dark Knight. In jail in London after being accused of assaulting his mother and sister.
