I have to say that I am okay with this, and I am not a fan of his. Way to go, Mr Bale.
And, best of luck, Jayden. Keep fighting kid.
plus one Subby.

Even though he's known as the asshole on that audio clip, Bale has proven himself time and time again to be a good guy.

Change your name, 'Christian,' then I'll be impressed.

Hopefully you're joking, but if you're not then you should be aware that the little boy looks fat, especially his face, due to the cancer treatments.

I think flying him to a cancer hospital might help more.

RTA. He has been getting treatment for his cancer and is currently in remission.

It's early, apparently my remark was not perceived as fatuous as it was meant to be.

I may be partial to the guy but when he does something like this it does not taste like a publicity stunt at all. Some will tell all media and bring 800 paparazzis for something like this.

Yeah, but who will stand up for the kid when NOBAMA's Death Squads come for him? Also, Israel.

Is the kid a Jew? If he's not, Israel doesn't give a shiat.

Every single time this guy is in the news he's doing something amazing. I know he had a family quarrel that TMZ and the like blew up but this guy is a class act across the board.

I really discounted CB for years as just another actor but he really is a pretty special person. Good for him.
 
2012-09-09 08:25:07 AM  
...and boy are his arms tired!
 
2012-09-09 08:31:39 AM  
He probably did it just so he could scream at the kid in person.

Yeah, he either mellowed out, or hired a better publicist.

That first sentence would have been better if it ended with "...in the Batcopter", but it'll have to do for now.

The world needs more of this from each and every one of us.

Rightfully so. Patrick Bateman is awesome, and Disney hasn't been awesome in decades.

Hasn't the kid suffered enough?

I still take that with a grain of salt. He was in the middle of a shot, long day and who knows what his mindset was at the time. I've been in the midst of a mad rush of people, working in a stress building environment and have probably chewed out employees for effing up.

What he didn't do was pull a Crowe and do it over and over.

Am I the only person who actually sympathized somewhat with Bale when he blew up on that clueless knucklehead? If nothing else, it's awesome because we got this out of the whole episode (clicky-pop, make sure your speakers are up... although you might not want to play it at work).

Anyways, well done to Mr. Bale for showing enormous kindness to this kid.

Yes you are, it was unprofessional. Whatever you are, be professional

Why would you? Why did you even write that sentence?

Hey, even the surrogate from arrested development ended up punching out gob..

I'm not sure I sympathized with him, but I didn't let it tilt my view of the guy all that much. People have shiatty days at work, and sometimes they farking lose it. Would most of us be fired for such an outburst? Yep, but most of us have probably wanted to have one, yet most of us aren't mega-popular actors who can't be fired. Bale apologized afterwards, and it wasn't a nopology either if I recall correctly.

That is the one sentence that leapt out at me as well. Baffling behavior.

If he's going out and doing things for cancer patients, shooting victims, etc, he's entitled to yell and scream in that audio clip. It balances things out.
 
2012-09-09 02:05:15 PM  
Unfortunately, in the middle of the flight to Disneyland, there was a layover in Japan that was totally unnecessary and just slowed the whole thing down.

I'm guessing the kid is on prednisone for complications from the bone marrow transplant. Prednisone can cause puffiness in the face.

There's nothing that POS prick could do to rehab himself as far as I'm concerned.

Prednisone did that to him. My ex had permanent puffy cheeks after beating leukemia.

This. Also, when that happened, there were a few other people who came out and said the guy he was yelling at was known for being a dickwad on set. If Bale constantly did that kind of thing, then yeah he's an a-hole. The last two stories I've read about him was him showing up for this and the victims of the shooting, all without media in tow. People only found out about it when they started posting pics to their Facebook accounts. He seems like a decent guy.
