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.”

The rowdy underwear-clad crowd shouted things like “We’re getting naked!” which isn’t something you’d really want to hear (or see) from a stranger before 10 a.m. on a weekday. Maybe this is just our opinion, though? Would you stand around in your bra and panties in a public place if it meant getting a free outfit? [DailyCandy Twitter, CBS NY] Keep reading »
