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.

    of course i was referring to amazing blake!!

  • Bessie_mae

    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.

    of course i’m referring to amazing beautiful blake

  • null

    Wow. Maggie looks great. She normally looks a bit dowdy, but here she looks fresh and pretty.

  • chantal

    Bessie_mae, FYI Blake lively is such a talented actress, and she looks very good there! thankyou jared! and pelase never stop uploading pictures of blake and of blake n penn! ther are adorable

  • QQQQ

    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?

  • why so serious?

    How come Bruce Wayne looks poor
    and not well fed?

  • zen

    The Batman and Jokeback’s spotlight are overthrown because the public and media are going gooogoo gaaagaaa more on Brad Pitt and Angelina’s babies.

  • vanya

    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!

    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.

  • tatiana

    Dispite LC not being talented, at least she can rock a dress on the redcarpet.

    WTF is that hideous Blake Lively wearing? Strange silk jumpsuit? Her pose and face makes her look constipated.

  • angel hair

    what the hell were those two doing there? RUINED IT.

  • anon

    ^ clearly B listers trying to get media coverage despite no talent that’s what.

    get over these losers JJ.

  • galloway

    Wasn’t Morgan Freeman there as well? This is only the first of several premieres I believe…LA and London still to go.

  • toni

    R.I.P ,dear Heath,you should be there at the premiere of TDK.Your Joker is brilliant and unforgettable!
    So much potential,so little time….What a shame!! :(

  • Justin

    #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.

  • lala

    I LOVE BLAKE LIVELYY! shes betta den that ugly leighton girl

  • anonymous

    Justin (67)

    I won’t comment on her looks, but her acting leaves much to be desired.

  • chase

    Maggie is fug.Blake is more prettier and has more to offer.

  • Angela

    I agree with #67 and #69 and don’t think much of Blake at all.

  • Sandra

    does anyone know who the designer of lauren’s dress is?
    it’s amazing … i wanna have it!!!!

  • nikomilinko
  • Helena

    God, who invited Lauren Conrad? I wish she’d go AWAY.

  • Regina

    They call this honouring Heath Ledger? By inviting by skánk from a crappy reality TV show? Maggie Gyllenhaal and Blake Lively look good, though.

  • Ingrid

    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.

  • rory

    oh, Maggie looks amazing! but who’s the girl with Emile?

  • rory

    and Jared, it’s Emile Hirsch not Emilie! lol :D

  • stefanie

    Maggie’s not pretty, but that dress is beautiful.
    Thumb’s up.

  • Bitch

    CB looks younger than usual at this premiere. Probably trying to attract a teenage audience.

  • stefanie

    Yo None #32: I saw him too. I was just walking up the street and trying to get pass all the crowds. I saw him signing stuff from a bunch of kids. He is a real star. I was walking past that huge row of photogs taking pictures.

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

    But it was really cool at the premiere.

  • fresh

    I agree—Blake and Lauren need to stay home. They shouldnt be there. Go see a movie with the regular folk cuz you are not A list.

  • Kikx

    Sorry to all the “fans” but I also don’t see the appeal of Blake. She’s so plain. Anyhoo Jared, why did you post pictures of all the losers that were there instead of the real actors?

  • bla blah

    I agree—Blake and Lauren need to stay home. They shouldnt be there. Go see a movie with the regular folk cuz you are not A list.
    Ditto. LC is gonna a has been 10 years from now anyways. She doesn’t have any talent. And all she’s famous for is being in a reality show.

  • TOM

    blake livey is simply amazing and hot!!!!!!

  • kiki

    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.

  • angie


  • dee

    teh dress that lauren conrad has on khloe’ kardashian just had it for her bday party!!!!

  • Holly

    Maggie is the worst leading lady for the bats. Hope she dies in the movie.

  • gretel

    i just love blake she is so amazing and so beautiful, thankyou jared!

  • if it works for them

    Christian Bale is a good actor. He seems very modest and down to earth, not to mention he is good looking too.

  • lisa

    Does anyone know who is that girl with Emile Hirsch? She is gorgeous, and he is hot!

  • Jesse

    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.


    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.

  • lindsay

    i just saw the movie, and all i can say is: A M A Z I N G!!!

  • Sammy

    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.
