I'm going to throw in my opinion on this recent news of Christian Bale's tirade on set. If you've not heard about it I'd like to know the rents on the cave you're living in, because if I've heard about it then it must be bigger news than I think because I'm always the last to hear about this kind of crap because I'm seriously displaced from Hollywood drama - blissfully displaced I'll add.
Yet I've read a bit of Christian Bale hate about this so I followed the links and had a listen - go here to listen if you've not heard it....go on we'll have coffee and cookies. No worries - I'll save you one!
So he's pretty pissed, right. Here's what I think: He's absolutely justified to be pissed off. From what he says this isn't the first time the DP has wandered onset during filming. Where's the support from the director? "I didn't see anything..." Nice. What exactly were you looking at, then? It's no wonder Christian's popped a vessel; and the guys keep coming back with mumblings and laughing and it's obvious Christian is on the tension wire. He's into the job, he's trying to get the shoot done and wants the day over and he's working with muppets. Let's also take a minute to consider the fact they're working on yet another Terminator sequel. How hard must that be? I mean it's pretty much a joke before it's started. Terminator sequel? Again? Bryce? *sigh* Let's just get this shit over with so we can go home and drink the reality of this situation away for a couple weeks. Sounds to me like he's been working with clowns and finally let off some pent-up steam.
Now when I'd heard he went off on his own Mom, that was far more shocking but since his career didn't end with that revelation then I think he'll weather this fairly well. Just won't ask him to babysit anytime soon. Also, I love how the media blows up the arrest but never followed up in Sept 08' when Bale was to appear in court. Or not that I've seen. Not that I care, but you'd think, wouldn't you? For the full story? But no bigger better candidates come along and it's all forgotten.
I love the remix though and want it on my iPod.
Also, Sara Benincasa's Anne Hathaway rip was even better. The DP (no S, fuck off!) bit was my favourite.
OOPS! It seems when the BBC reported Bale's tantrum, they forgot to edit it first. Teehee.
