By now, we've all heard the cringy-yet-delicious tantrum thrown by Christian Bale (aka the guy who played Patrick Bateman in the classic film American Psycho, but wasn't really acting, apparently). His flip-out occurred during shooting of Terminator Salvation a few months back, but the tape was released this week, much to the world's delight!
According to E! News:
"It's been a miserable week for me," Bale told hosts Kevin Ryder and Gene "Bean" Baxter. "Listen, I know I have a potty mouth; (a potty mouth??? More like a steaming pile of elephant dung-mouth) everybody knows this now."The thing that I really want to stress is I have no confusion whatsoever. I was out of order beyond belief. I was way out of order. I acted like a punk. I regret that."There is nobody that has heard that tape that's been hit harder by it than me. I make no excuses for it. It is inexcusable. I hope that that is absolutely clear."
As for what brought on the much-played rant, Bale said that the day's shooting was particularly intense and that "I put so much into what I do and care so much about it and sometimes the enthusiasm just goes awry."I'm embarrassed by it. 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."Not that he doesn't understand the public's insatiable desire to hear—and mock and remix—the audio."Feel free to make fun of me at my expense; I deserve it completely."
And mock we WILL. Oh. And DANCE.
