    Be careful of this guy though. He already was in trouble for beating his mom. He is also the one who beat up his boyfriend and put him in the hospital. The boyfriend was paid nicely to keep his mouth shut.

    God, I just love it when people take a story they heard something about ages ago and invent a 'truth' from it. He did not beat his mother.

    Assault in the UK (where the incident occurred) does not mean hitting - it can mean a number of things.

    It seems that Bale flipped out at his mother (in this nasty, aggressive way that he seems to have, that I do not condone) and...

    All quotes from FOXNews.com - Report: Christian Bale Confronted Mother After She Insulted Wife - Celebrity Gossip | Entertainment News | Arts And Entertainment

    I have no idea where the notion that he "beat up his boyfriend and put him in the hospital" came from. I thought Bale had a wife, not a boyfriend, and I can't find any evidence of that story in a quick Google - perhaps you could cite a source for that one.​

    Bale is straight, so no boyfriend lol

    But on the subject at hand I have to say I am a bit disappointed in him loosing his cool this way. It just seems so unprofessional and stupid and in any other work place the boss would have fired his ass for getting so riled up.

    Well, actually, now I think about it - I cited faux news so that's fair enough! :wink:

    Well - many other, maybe not any other. Depends how good you are at your job too.

    But yeah, I find this kind of behaviour disappointing too. I think Bale is a great actor, I don't always like his movies but his performances are solid and then some. He's also far from being the only performer who behaves like that. They don't call it an artistic temperament for nothing, you know.

    It happens on just about every set. He was about to film an important scene when the lighting director walked on the set and caused him to lose it. Everyone that was there said it was over before it started. So silly.

    There does appear to be another side to this.

    Source

    If the above is true then I can empathize with Bale. There are few things more frustrating than repeatedly asking someone not to do something, repeatedly explaining why it shouldn't be done and having them continually doing it anyway.

    Frazzled doesn't begin to describe it.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who can relate.

    If this did happen it's the directors job to correct the guy. Bale is a bully and he knows that as the star of the movie people can not talk back to him.

    Bale has obvious anger and rage issues. It was reported that two days later he had the incident with his mother and sister that led to trouble with the police.

    When things like this happen that he feels the need to belittle and threaten people and their jobs it's usually about something else wrong in his life.

    I'm SO thrilled that this tape came out. The guy being yelled at couldn't get revenge on the set, but so many people must hate Bale that they were able to get the audio of his meltdown.

    He's an actor, not a brain surgeon. “My dear boy, why don't you try acting? It's so much easier" (Laurence Olivier on the set of 'Marathon Man', to Dustin Hoffman, who had announced that he'd gone 3 days without sleep in order to 'become' his character.)

    I firmly agree with the last poster. Good actor or not, pure rage comes through, not to mention a fairly sophomoric vocabulary. What kind of person who has any control of himself descends so quickly and endlessly into the Anglo-Saxon? If you must vent, at least do so articulately.

    How shameful. I hope actors like him pay the big price for their childish displays.

    I have to agree, too, honestly. The depth that actors can reach during shooting can get more intense than most of us will know. Martin Sheen, for example, mourned his father's passing in Blind Ambition after not being able to attend his funeral.

    I've come close to losing my head in music rehearsals, too.
