Hey there's white trash family freeloaders in Britain too!

I knew this was all a ploy for the family to get some of that Dark Knight cash. I'm with Mr. Bale here. Family ignores him then comes running when the bank rolls in.

How depressing. While I generally enjoy trashy entertainment news, I feel bad about this one. It's kind of sad. I feel like you do when you hear the neighbors arguing about their kid's behavioral problems - mildly intrigued, but more embarrassed than anything else.

Can't some starlet do something stupid, or someone forget to wear panties as they leave a limo, or some hunk get caught in a three-way with two hot models to divert attention from this familial trainwreck? For the good of us all?
 
2008-07-24 07:40:28 AM
While in general I think that family should help each other out, the fact that the sister and mom filed assault charges (which they knew would negatively affect his career) indicates that there were probably some very unpleasant family dynamics even before the request for $.

'Win' and 'THIS' in one comment. Good job.

It's pretty tacky to ask someone for that kind of scratch. I mean, OK, your brother is loaded, you might hint around that a couple thousand would really help out. But to put the touch on someone for $200k? I can be one heck of a mooch, but that's just rude.
 
2008-07-24 07:41:59 AM
They didn't earn it, so it isn't theirs by any right. He should only give them the money if he truly wants to, and no reason other than that. I don't care if he had billions of pounds sterling, if he earned it then it's freakin his.

Money and family don't mix, nor should anyone try to mix them. If you wouldn't do the same deal with a total stranger (of course, with them presenting the same kind of information pertinent to the loan as your family) then don't do it with family.

What I find odd about Christian Bale is that he doesn't try to capitalize on his looks. He was RIPPED in American Psycho but says he finds working out "boring" and only does it for roles. Rest of the time he looks like an average joe. Same with the scruffy beard and buzz cut.

In stark contrast to Bale's multimillionaire Hollywood lifestyle, Jenny Bale lives in a modest £275,000, detached house in Southbourne, Dorset.

£275,000 = $546,000+ for a "modest" house? Is Dorset in the SF Bay area?

This is in line with what I was thinking from the start.

A $650,000 house is not "modest" where i come from. You are doing pretty good if that is what your place costs.

His sister, the poor soul, house is only worth $480,000
Yesterday neither Jenny nor Sharon Bale - who lives very near her mother in a £240,000 semi-detached home - were willing to comment.

Sounds like extortion and he called their bluff.

Given that their step-mom is Gloria Steinem, this doesn't surprise me.

All sex is rape and any time a man doesn't give you exactly what you want without complaint, he's abusing you.

That is BS marketing. Nobody wants to admit to being obsessed with their body, and he is probably a little less in shpoe when he isn't in a role, but I am sure he is always on some type of workout program.

He didn't want to be a good Christian. When I heard about this, I was surprised. HE didn't seem like the kind of guy who would do this.

I have no problem with him telling his parents to fark off, but I don't know if they ignored him. They did get him started in empire of the son when he was a kid. If child ascting is good or bad is a whole other can of worms, but they did get him his start.

I dunno, if I had as much money as he does, I'd probably have already set my family up well without them asking. It may be a little douchey to ask, but unless this is just the most recent of a number of times they've asked for money, he's a little bit of a douche himself.

We have no idea what sort of relationship he has with his mother and sister. If they are confronting him at a hotel, refusing to leave until he gets there and begging money off of him - I'm doubting that the relationship is cozy.

Just because they are family, doesn't mean they are entitled to his money.

Dammit, I bought into the original story. I didn't get all excited but I did mention it to my wife that he got physical with his mom and sister and was arrested. Good for him, the article did not say much about his sister. How old are her kids, where's the dad and is he supporting his kids to what tune? Oh and as someone who was once married to a glamorous 10.5 woman once, the family can sure come heavy on her when things aren't all fine and dandy. It seems like her good looks, flat belly, perky breasts and slender physique brought out the worst in my fat and old and gray and frigid aunts.

Why? What did they do to earn it?

Besides, given that they immediately went for attempting to ruin his career as retribution for denying them money, they probably weren't very close anyway. Why should he give money to people he doesn't even like?

Aside from whatever fantasy view you have of Steinem's gender politics, she married Bale's father, putting her on the opposite side of the family division seen here.

Yeah, sounds like his mom is a hysterical, psycho hose-beast. She should be arrested for filing a false report.

Lessee, ambush me, trap me, then try and twist my arm for some cash and follow up by talking smack about my wife?

You can bet your ass there's going to be some raised voices.

The average price for a detached house in Dorset is $750k, so, yes, hers is comparatively modest.
