Bale Goes Fucking Nuts!!!! ***UPDATED***

I guess now we know his poor mother was telling the truth?

UPDATE

After a week of people like me drawing attention to his shortcomings, unprecedented press coverage and especially Steven Colbert himself using Steve Martin to launch his own spoof-attack parody; Christian Bale has had enough and now apologised:

“It’s been a miserable week for me. I was out of order beyond belief, I was way out of order. I am embarrassed by it and I regret it. And I ask everybody to sit down and ask themselves, ‘Have they ever had a bad day and have they ever lost their temper and really regretted it immensely?”

I hear the guy in charge of the light on the site, kept moving the damn lights around and set Bale off.

vaughan said...

it was the Director of Photography actually...second only to the Director in importance on any set...except this one it seems!

Cubaboy said...

This is good, but not quite as good as Twink's "Zip Up Your Mickey" rant, which beg's the question, what is the best/most cringeworthy celebrity melt down/rant of all time. My vote goes to Twink as it showed what a really nasty piece of work she is behind all the fucking arse licking she does in public. We all knew Bale was a fucking lunatic well before this, he was in a Japanese prisioner of war camp as a child for Godsake!!

Constance said...

what are any of you talking about, anyway? I see a photo but no explanation. Am I supposed to guess?

Colonel Creedon said...

@ Civvy: "The guy in charge of the lights"? You was never one for grandiose titles were you. I'm just glad as the Director Of Special Operations for UNETIDA I've not been reduced to "Marine who shoots at aliens."

@ Vaughan: What? Do you mean Andrew was more important on your sets than I was???

@ Cubaboy: My favourite is Ed Harris in an outtake from "The Rock" where he remains in character as Brigadier General Francis X. Hummel, USMC and chews out a member of the production staff for smoking. But it would be difficult to say which is the best celebrity rant.

@ Constance: There's a link under the picture - it's in a different colour to the rest of the text like all my other links :p

"Next on BBC Radio 4 , Book at Bedtime, Christian Bale reads from the Little Book of Calm!"

Civilian Overseer said...

takes eoDirectory of Phohtography actually..., Ooohw, How very "handbags at Dawn" of you! Guy who takes exception to the oddest things

The fecker was moving a light on set, unless he was a complete moron, I reckon he must have been the guy responsible for moving the the lights. So the "guy in charge of the light on the site" is a pretty accurate description of him Wouldn't you say? Incompetent Commander who gets his men needlessly killed

Now let's see if the appropriate people respond to the above descriptions.

Constance said...

Okay, look. I didn't click on the link because I thought it referred to the thing with Bale's mom. Been there, read that.

Bale sounds like an overly dramatic idiot. What kind of a weird accent is that, anyway?

Marnie (can't be arsed with Pint of any more) said...

Hey Constance, His accent is welsh, but like most people the US accent infects it...eventually.

That rant is bad, but i've seen the Colonel do worse all i have to say Colonel are the initials E D :-P

Constance said...

Oh! Thanks Marnie!

Around here, E.D. means "Erectile Dysfunction" Is that what the rant was about? Was it? E.D.?

Hmm... Marnie is an anagram of "Marine"... are you secretly the Colonel's C.O.?

Civilian Overseer said...

Marnie eh?, don't know if I approve of this name change. Time will tell

Connie, No, No, I think that you'll find that E.D. stands for ED, as in the incredible talking horse Mr. ED., the Fmr.Lt.Col has been a pony fancier for years.

Bruce Russell said...

So Bale goes to dark places in his work, and doesn't always come all the way out? We've known about this for years, ever since he sliced up those prostitutes while making American Psycho. Hadn't heard of that one? That's because it's a true story that I made up. Or did I . . . .

Colonel Creedon said...

Post has been updated and Bale has now apologised. All is forgiven and we can go back to loving his movies and going to see Terminator 4 - Yay!

Civilian Overseer said...

Free publicity and no harm done, Lord Baal I mean, Bale must have a Sith Lord as an agent.

Marnie said...

I'll couldn't do it to you Col. tempting though it is. :-) No ED is a person't initials.....up to col to tell you who... and Marnie is my name... Pint of refers to my surname... and I'm definitely NOT a marine, but CEO of the Colonel....interesting prospect... leave it with me, i'll see how many hoops i can get him to jump through. ;-}

Constance said...

dammit Marnie, I had him on the ropes and you just let him off the hook. Oh well.

I could never ask him to explain who E.D. is. If she causes him to be so upset, it must have been a woman he was deeply in love with but who broke his heart... I'd hate to ask and have him relive that heartbreak all over again.

Good luck with the hoops. Remember to use treats and kind words and they will behave very well.

Civilian Overseer said...

Marnie Murphy?..., Marnie Murph!..., why thats just some rhyming cockney away from... Papa Smurph!

Constance said...

Civvy, you're almost there.

sMurphette!

Civilian Overseer said...

Connie, I concur, Smurphette was a hottie.

Constance said...

So, you had..."feelings" for Smurphette, did you?

Civilian Overseer said...

Connie, Feelings be damned, Urges more like. Hey she was the only female smurph! ;)

Colonel Creedon said...

No she wasn't!!!! You forget Sasette her younger sister. She had freckles and was a redhead. A far more likeable character than that blonde tramp Smurfette.

Civilian Overseer said...

Fmr.Lt.Col, what's wrong with Blonde Tramps?, they've been very good to me in the past, I will not have a single word said against them.

Constance said...

I don't know what's funniest:

* Civilian Overseer declaring his youthful lusting after Smurfette

or...

* Creedon's strangely intimate knowledge of the Smurf community

or...

* Creedon's defense of Sassette, the superior redheaded Smurf

or...

...you know what, I think I can leave it at that.
