Christian Bale's Big Night

Christian Bale's Big Night

Christian Bale is flanked by Lauren Conrad (The Hills) and Blake Lively (Gossip Girl) at the premiere of The Dark Knight at AMC Loews Lincoln Center in New York City on Monday.

Emilie Hirsch and Maggie Gyllenhaal was also on hand for the festivities. (pictured inside)

75-year-old legend and co-star Michael Caine recently commented about his thoughts on who the best Batman actor of all-time, saying, “I think Christian is the best actor ever to play Batman. He’s also very lucky. He’s got the best writer and director ever for Batman, Christopher Nolan. That’s why I agreed to do it. I’d seen Memento and Insomnia so was a big fan of Christopher. Then I read Batman Begins and thought the script was brilliant.

    You would think more A-listers would be there. I mean Lauren Conrad? That girl is NOT talent – she is a waste of space. And Blake Lively? Seriously – where are the REAL actors???

    Hey Tas, you don’t have to be like this, I think she is ugly, so what? Why that offends YOU?

    LC Is an attention non-talented *****. Bring in the real actors like Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman, not famous for being in a reality show *****.

    Paige Says:

    Lauren and Blake, that’s the best they could do for the premier. The one isn’t even in the film biz, she’s just on some cheesy MTV “reality” show *rolls eyes*

    The big twist of this movie is that Maggie is the Joker!!!!

    Bale looks unhappy — probably because he has a hard time separating from his character.

I JUST LOVE HER, AND SHE HAS A LOT A LOT OF FANS. HERE WHERE I LIVE SO SO SO MANY PEOPLE LOVE BLAKE FOR A REASON!.. SHE IS ALSO DESCRIBED BY PAPARAZZI AS BEING “THE BEST” SO KIND TO PEOPLE..
    I THINK IT’S RUDE THAT PPL WHO DISLIKE HER AND/OR LAUREN, MAKE BAD COMMENTS ABOUT THEM! PLEASE JUST KEEP THEM TO YOURSELVES..
    US WHO LOVE BLAKE LOVE SEEING PICTURES OF HER.. AND PENN!..
    BTW.. PENN WAS THERE, I SAW ANOTHER PICTURE OF BLAKE AND HE IS BY HER SIDE!! LOVE THEM!

    I can’t believe Lauren Conrad was there. At least Blake is an actress on a very popular show. LC is freaking reality show contestant. I agree with whoever said she is a waste of space (at least at the premeire)

    none Says:

    I SAW HIM!!!!!!!! We all went crazy at the premiere. Sadly, he walked right past us, talked mostly to the reporters. All of us were screaming for him to turn around, at one point we started up a chant: “Christian, Christian” and the fanboys started up “Batman, Batman” so it all got jumbled, lol. But he never turned around (my heart broke). He was looking so fine.

    And there WERE real stars, I missed Blake and Lauren, but we also saw Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Aaron Eckhart, Michael Caine, Danny Devito, Josh Hartnett, and more.

    Sasha Says:

    I couldn’t give a rat’s ass about the b list twits at the premiere, how embarrassing for him, given he’s a serious actor given the projects he has taken on and the way he carries himself in private, public and interviews. I bet “reality”stars and nubile teenage girls in lousy night time soap opera television shows make him cringe. No wonder he looks like he’s going to get sick. He was fantastic in Rescue Dawn.
    BTW, glad to see he married a real gal. I wish them the best and many more great performances by Mr. Bale.

    Oh my god, people, just because someone thinks another person is ugly, doen’t mean that she/he is jelous. I’m oblied to think that Blake is beautiful? That ridiculous, you may find her the most beautiful girl in the planet.
    I don’t think so, get over it.

    OLivia Says:

    take a chill pill,Bale. He looks old and always miserable and angry.

    Im anti surgery but I sure recommend Maggie to have one on her ugly face. I will puke & laugh on her romantic scenes with Eckhart and Bale.

    Okay, jj, you are cool and everything, but why the hell did you choose to post these two non-talents beside Christian and put them in a post where they really don’t belong? I know this is a gossip site but at least keep it relative. LC and that Blake Lively girl have NOTHING to do with the Dark Knight or Christian Bale. I mean you could have just left it at Christian Bale, you didn’t have to tack on those two beside him for the sake of it. Like what the heck.

    C.Bale looks pissed as usual because like Batman 89 its the Joker who gets all the glory and attention and possibly many awards while he gets zero.

    His love interest looks like the joker in drag. Can you blame the guy for not smiling?

    Who’s the nut who keeps saying Bale is looking old and insulting Maggie. It’s probably that Katie Holmes nutjob with a million user accounts. Bale looks like a MAN! Botox-free and gorgeous. Maggie looks stunning. She actually looks human and non-Stepford-like. Thank the Good Lord, Maggie took over for that no-talent, zombie bride, Katie Holmes. Thank you, Warner Brothers for firing her!

    Anon Says:

    Emile Hirsh, Naomi Watts, Liev Schrieber, Danny DeVito, (The Penguin in the old Batman movies), were all there. Emil and Naomi were close to Heath. Heath became friends with Liev when Liev started dating Naomi. Heath used to date her and they remained best of friends. Heath’s family was there also, but went in the back way with Naomi and Liev. I think there will be more people at the LA premiere.

    Justin Says:

    #27 Blake isn’t ugly, but she’s far from a knockout. She fills a niche on a show and can act, it’s not her looks that made her famous. As for being nominated for “hottie” of the year.. big effing deal. It’s probably some MTV award type thing, chosen by a bunch of simpletons who go by popularity and not much else.

    There were other stars there tonight, but for some reason, Jared hasn’t posted them. Blake’s co stars Penn Badgley (aka her bf), Ed Westwick, Danny DeVito, Ethan Hawke, Emile Hirsch and Josh Hartnett,

    Who cares anyway, it’s not a parade of stars, it’s a premiere to honour Heath Ledger’s performance.

    Of course, he was shorter than I thought. All these actors are shorter than you think.

    But it was really cool at the premiere.

    For all of you saying LC has no talent, she has gotten pretty far in this business. Talent comes in different forms. Just because she isn’t an actor or singer doesn’t mean she has no talent.

    Bottom Line……. Blake and Lauren got to go to the premiere and do red carpet while the rest of you sit at your computer and trash them. I would have to say that you haters are sad people.

    LC is a reality show contestant? In order for that to be true, she would have to be on a show which contains a competition. “the hills” is filmed documentary style, like laguna was. Get your facts straight before slagging her off. She’s gorgeous and has every right to be there. If that was Linda Evangelista noone would be saying “She’s a supermodel, whys she there?” Maybe LC wanted to go and was invited. She’s still famous and draws a certain buzz. Its unfortunate that her presence there offends you.

    SIMONETTE ALANES Says:

    All the trash talking, hateful comments on Maggie Gyllenhaal are from one psychotic fan of katie Holmes. She has been posting hundreds of libelous comments on Maggie under different nicknames, here on Just Jared and on other blogs. She hates Maggie because she is the one which has been chosen by Christopher Nolan to play Rachel Dawes when Katie Holmes was canned.

    Her real name is Simonette Alanes. She is 34 years old, unmarried, and living with her parents (her mother name’s is Kohinoor Alanes) in Arletta, California. She is a phillippino immigrant and has never worked. She spends her whole days on the Internet and she is living at her parent’s expenses and stealing their credit cards regularly in order to buy stuff, magazines about Katie Holmes, her idol. Katie Holmes is her whole life. Simonette Alanes thinks that they fired Katie from The Dark Knight in order to hire Maggie … which is true, actually. And she has murderous thoughts and intentions when she thinks of Maggie.

    Sammy Says:

    Wow. Lauren Conrad is actually a pretty nice girl. Girls and maybe some guys only watch her show because our lives are boring and their’s is obviously more exciting than ours. That’s the way my sister put it. Yes. Her family was rich and she got famous off of Laguna Beach, but MTV made it that way. She didn’t ask for it. She just made all her dreams come true. Lauren isn’t a waste of time. She’ll be the next girl with the cheap fashion lines everywhere to be possibly seen.

    Blake Lively has done very little things but now she has played a huge part in the celebrity world because she is now on the show Gossip Girl. If you take big steps, you can become famous too. These girls and guys didn’t become famous overnight. They actually worked for it.

    So if you got nasty rumors or comments to spread, just knock it off and keep it to yourself. Because what if your famous one day? People will say the exact same things as you.
