well, look at it his way. the dude obviously walked into the shot and wasted valuable time and $ by doing so. maybe bale is a psycho jerk but that guy screwed up and got called out on it.

Christian Bale is probably the best actor of his generation, and I can easily forgive such a talented artist if his behaviour is a bit "special".

the guy definitely screwed up and i can certainly understand the frustration, but a 4 minute tirade laden with personal threats?!

i dunno that i've ever gone off about something for 4 straight minutes on another person with such ferocity and moreso in front of several hundred people!

Obviously thats the way you'd want to react but you really have no idea what you would do. This guy (the DP) isn't used to being treated like that by actors and sounded quite shocked. Unfortunately part of the nature of that type of work is people get on each other nerves and that sort of thing is somewhat common. Especially amongst actors who are naturally dramatic people. I don't think many people would give it back to Bale because he was clearly out of line and that would just create further problems no one wants to deal with. He dealt with it pretty well and avoided a physical altercation.

To be fair, you probably have never had the pressure of attempting to revitalize a franchise based largely (almost entirely) on your acting performance. I'm not condoning Bale's rant, because I thought it was a bit excessive, but the guy clearly has a lot of pressure on him and, if the scene which was ruined by the DP was one which Bale thought could have been used, getting upset is entirely understandable.

they likely cleared the set at some point, that's not to say you wouldn't be able to hear bale from a short distance by the sounds of things. you'd be surprised how often sh*t gets out of control on film sets, between the actors, director, dp, and producers/writers, the expression is often "too many captains" and you end up with some serious egos battling and checking each other. On that note, i've never seen anything like what this recording portrays. I for one would not let christian bale talk to me like that, I'd probably just cuss him out and walk, but there'd be a slight chance of me just knocking him on his ass. like someone else said, not "e-flexing", just wouldn't let anyone berate me like that. the old "you'll never work in this town again" thing is completely bogus, you can piss off a great many people and still find work. It's a smaller world than you might think but Christian Bale can't ruin anyone's career.

You cant be serious.

A bit excessive? Getting upset is understandable, but that was more than a bit excessive. That was ridiculous. He sounded like a mental patient.

He sounded like a spoilt little brat, who needs his own way with everything.
Christian Bale has shown himself to be a total d!ckhead.
