This empty space is everyone on Fark failing to give a shiat, Failmitter.

Do you like Christian Bale? I didn't care for his early stuff. Too artsy, too intellectual. But American Psycho, that's where it all came together.

Who didn't "date" Drew Barrymore in the 80's and 90's? That chick must buy Valtrex by the truck load.

Seems like your cliched messed up right-brain guy (or is it left-brain, can't remember).

Also, sounds like sort of a douche. Fantastic actor though.

3. Bale would call up family and friends in the character of Patrick Bateman, greeting associates with "It'sssssssss Patrick!"

I like this.

"DiCaprio eventually bailed after Gloria Steinem urged him not to take the role, which she said could inspire copycat murders from within his teen fan base."

Who cares what he's like in reality, on the screen he's amazing.

Wasn't Gloria Steinem Bale's stepmother?

15: When he travels internationally he shows a passport with the picture I took.

He's an Aquarius. Aquarians are either barking mad, egocentrics like Bale or sweet, geekish eccentrics like Tom Hiddleston. They are never in the middle.

/at least they are never dull

According to the Wikipedia but I was wondering why DiCaprio would bother listening to her.

Came here to point that out.

Aren't most Christians assholes? Either way, I love his work. Who cares if he's a dick?

15. Still masturbates to Newsies.

Wow, I'm amazed they were able to come up with 14 things I don't care about. Very impressive.

From the article, Bale on being fired from "American Psycho": "Losing this role is like having a pencil shoved through my brain."

Okay, now we have a clear story arc running through "American Psycho" to "The Dark Knight": All of Christian Bale's movies involve pencils being shoved through brains.

I full expect his next movie to be a reboot of "Hellraiser" where he plays a demon named "Pencilhead".

Also from the article: "Better to be safe than sorry," he wrote. "A screwdriver thrust thru the eyeball into the brain prevents any screaming. Let me know how it goes."

Okay, so this really appears to be a thing with him, so I'm changing my prediction. His next movie will be called "People Being Stabbed In The Brain By People Who Have Been Stabbed In The Brain By Other People Who Have Been Stabbed In The Brain. Also, Everyone In The Audience Gets Stabbed In The Brain." Starring a pencil as "Number Two" and a screwdriver as "Phillips".

16. He's a really good dancer (watch Swing Kids) for such an uptight individual.

I agree with him lecturing rude little girls for approaching him. I don't think being famous means you have to give up the right to just be goddamn left alone in your private time, and there's something truly and deeply disrespectful and selfish about interrupting someone at dinner for a photo or autograph. Just squee from afar like a decent person would do.

Obviously a lot of famous people derive pleasure from being famous, and the random adoration of strangers excites them. But what fan would be stupid enough to mistake Christian Bale for a fame whore?

Yup. Sounds like a whole lot of "oooh I worked for Christian Bale and he hurt my feelings. I can't take it anymore!".
