You wouldn't want to get Christian Bale mad. The Batman star was filming on the set of his new movie Terminator Salvation when the Director of Photography, Shane Hurlbut kept walking around in the middle of a scene. Bale then went berzerk and launched an abusive tirade towards the poor DP. Listen to it (above) and you can also download the mp3 here.
Telegraph has a full transcript of his rant. Here's part of it (censored):
Christian Bale: Am I going to walk around and rip your ------- lights down, in the middle of a scene? Then why the ---- are you walking right through? Ah-da-da-dah, like this in the background. What the ---- is it with you? What don't you ------- understand? You got any ------- idea about, hey, it's ------- distracting having somebody walking up behind Bryce in the middle of the ------- scene? Give me a ------- answer! What don't you get about it?Wow! Bale can really blow his top alright. Never disturb an actor while he is shooting a scene especially when his name is Christian Bale. Remember that, all you aspiring DPs. Oh well, at least one person sees the lighter side of it. Music composer and producer RevoLucian thinks that Bale's crazy rant is worthy enough to be put into a song. Presenting his Christian Bale Remix, Bale Out!
Shane Hurlbut: I was looking at the light.
Bale: Ohhhhh, goooood for you. And how was it? I hope it was ------- good, because it's useless now, isn't it?
Surprisingly, it's pretty good. I bet it will climb up the dance charts in no time. Dance everyone, dance! Download the Bale Out mp3 here.
Update: Christian Bale admits he took it too far. He says, "I am embarrassed by it. I regret it. I ask everybody to sit down and ask themselves if they have ever had a bad day and lost their temper and really regretted it immensely."
