So yeah. Batman. The Caped Crusader. The Dark Knight. In jail in London after being accused of assaulting his mother and sister. Bale turned himself in after the London screening of The Dark Knight — a deal he worked out in advance because officials said, “it would have been wrong to have wrecked the premiere over a complaint which we don’t yet know is founded in truth.” Uh, okay. Anyway, this is depressing. We love Christian Bale. His deceased dad was married to Gloria Steinem for heaven’s sake, how could he actually assault two women?! Bale hasn’t responded to the assault charges yet, but we’ll keep you posted. [Sun U.K.]
Update: Is it wrong that my heart did a little happy dance upon reading that Bale may have been arrested for verbal assault not physical? I mean, that’s less depressing right? [TMZ]
Update Again: Sue me, I am obsessed. So it seems like this whole thing maybe was blown out of proportion. Bale’s sister and mom say they didn’t call the police to the scene of the “incident”. His sister called it a “family situation” that is extremely “sensitive”. FYI, I totally just learned him mom was a circus clown. Clowns are scary. The Joker looked like a clown. I wonder if there is a connection. Whatever, I am just so glad it looks like Batman isn’t a woman beater. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
I am finally seeing The Dark Knight on Sunday night and will report back with a review on Monday, although I can guarantee that review is going to be five stars and glowing with raves and accolades because even the preview is, like, the best movie I have ever seen. Christian Bale has taken the character of Batman to totally new emotional depths, which says a lot, because superheros generally kind of bore me. That said, I could listen to him read the phone book out loud and probably would go into fits of ecstasy so… Also, Christian Bale is the kind of actor that men and women totally agree on — my brother is is a screenwriter and he writes every screenplay with Christian Bale in mind. It’s like Christian Bale is his male muse, while Christian Bale is my erotic muse. It’s really brought our family together. Keep reading »
Today would have been Heath Ledger’s 29th birthday (it’s also the 40th Anniversary of Martin Luther King’s death, lest you think we’ve forgotten what’s really important). While we’re still so sad that Heath left the world in such a tragic and unexpected way, we can’t wait to see his final contribution to the film industry in the upcoming Batman: Dark Knight. The Joker is suddenly one sexy bastard. [Just Jared] Keep reading »
