Christian Bale Went Ballistic On Set of T-4 (Terminator Salvation)!

Feb 2, 2009 | Posted by: TheNewsMan | Full story: www.tmz.com

You may remember that Christian Bale went nuts on the set of "Terminator Salvation" a few months back, threatening to stop production and beat some serious ass.

The incident was audiotaped, and it's amazing. It happened on the set after a director of photography accidentally ruined a scene by walking onto the set. Bale lost it, screaming, yelling and threatening to quit if the bosses didn't fire the dude.

Film execs sent the tape to the insurance company that insured the film in case Bale bailed. Click (or copy) this link to listen: http://www.aolcdn.com/tmz_audio/020209_christianbale.mp3

Just yesterday he was the apple of your eye, Of course Bale is an ass. It's called being a sheep.

I bet you always hated him.

In light of Bale's recent outbursts, it sounds like he requires treatment for depression, and anger management as well.

Still, he is a human being and imperfect like us all, he just happens to be under the microscope.

A terrific actor; I just hope he seeks professional help sooner rather than later before he physically hurts himself or someone else.

I think the best part was, "no, you don't understand what it's like to work with actors!"

If the guy had known he most likely would have been quite happy to clean backed up sewer lines for a living. Where I work Mr. Bale would have been face-to-face with the ground after the first f-u, great actor or not.

I think they should have fired his ass! He is not that great of an actor and to say the least not worth the drama he is promoting.

Come do a film in Texas Welsh-Boy...I will personally walk right over and plant a boot in your arse. What an unprofessional, adoloscent actor. Some people just don't get how irrelevant they really are in the grand skeem of things. You are an actor...nothing more. Just like I am a musician... I will not be seeing this film. Maybe I'll wait a couple of years after it is released on video. Maybe...

I saw Dark Knight. Now, does someone want to tell me what is so great about his acting. Come on, I don't think a terminator movie is a "Oscar" getter. I have a feeling he won't be working much any more, except in porn.

I thought his role in American Psycho was sheer genius. Now I realize he was just being himself.

I agree with Sotadude. Before Dark Knight opened, he had a fight with his mom and sister in Britain and the cops were called. Of course the next day, mom and sis retracted their story. Could he have been pissed at all the attention Heath was receiving as the Joker while his name was barely mentioned?

Now, Heath was recently nominated for an Oscar (posthumously) and SURPRISE! Bale goes on the attack again. Coincidence? I think not.

Uber-Ego's often have issues with self control. Bale is no exception.

I heard quite a bit of the audio yesterday on Corey and Jay,..with the swear bits "Bleeped" out of course. Bale sounded like a whiney spoiled little shit who's gotten away with this type of behaviour for so long. And he just wouldn't STFU and move on, just kept yapping. I feel sorry for the Director of Photography, who had to just keep taking it at the expense of his job. If i was the DP on a major picture set, i'd know i can always work on another picture somewhere else, and i'd have bitch-slapped the little prick right there and then! You hear me Bale? Come find me, i'll do the job that should've been done.

That was WAY over the line! I'm sure if anyone yelled at him like that he wouldn't have to sit there and take it like the crew guy was forced to. What a JERK!
