Angry Christian Bale Screams and Shouts

Angry Christian Bale Screams and Shouts

While filming Terminator Salvation a few months back, Christian Bale went ballistic when Director of Photography Shane Hurlbut ruined a scene by walking onto the set.

The 35-year-old actor threatened to stop production if the producers didn’t fire Hurlbut. TMZ reports that film execs sent the tape to the insurance company that insured the film in case Bale bailed.

“You’re a nice guy but that doesn’t cut it when you’re bulls—ing and f—ing around on set!” yelled Bale during his almost 4-minute rant.

***WARNING: NSFW LANGUAGE***

For all the screaming and yelling, listen here [mp3].

    @19 the director needs to take a pill ‘care’ pill …what about consideration of intense actors and their needs? how about being extra considerate and showing respect and getting feedback from others? the director of ‘photography’ should know his place and he is not the star nor will he be carrying the film. He can be fired but we need Christian Bale

    I dont agree with the behavior of bale…
    but theres a lot of factor..

    stress maybe he was tired and there are so things that someone sometimes can control…
    maybe the guy crosses more than one time as i heard…

    he is right… he was trashing his scene

  • Kiko

    it takes a certain level of emtions to get ready for these sences.. and when you get to that point.. you are ready to go on with the scene and you have someone that is suppose to be professional that screws up by walking by over and over..i’d get pissed off too..it is hard to get back in the same mind frame that he was in for the scene

  • terry

    It’s a good think that Mr. Bale doesn’t work in the real world where “distractions” happen. May want to reconsider that first name – Christian.

  • Bullshit

    The person Bale was ranting at was DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY (cinematographer). The second most important person on the set after the director. Not just a lightin person! freaking idiots!

    HOW IS IT THAT THESE ANTICS THAT ACTORS PULL ON SET IS HARDLY EVER SHOWN?? I AM SURE THERE IS FAR MORE OF THIS GOING ON.

    I THINK BALE’S STARDOM IS GOING TO BE SHORT-LIVED. HOW DO U GO AROUND LIKE THIS NOT UNDERSTANDING THAT PEOPLE WILL BE SHOOTING AND RECORDING YOUR EVERY MOVE?

    I’M NOT FAMOUS AND EVEN I KNOW THAT NEIGHBORS OR FRIENDS OR ANYONE COULD BE LISTENING OR WATCHING THINGS THAT I DO IN PUBLIC OR THINGS THAT EVEN GO ON IN MY HOME. THERE’S NEVER ANY PRIVACY. MY FATHER RAISED ME TO CONDUCT MYSELF IN A PROPER MANNER AND TO LOOK DECENT WHEN IN PUBLIC BECAUSE HE INSTILLED IN ME THE DEFINITION OF KEEPING UP A GOOD REPUTATION , ESPECIALLY FOR YOUR FAMILY’S SAKE. IT’S ABOUT YOUR DIGNITY.

    Well looks like the only mainstream actor I like now is Johnny Depp. It“s just that I know what its like to be the guy on the other end, and let me tell you…..you feel so stupid and low. NO ONE deserves to feel like that. It would be very hard for me to forgive him after this. In fact I probably would just walk. Anyways I completely agree with jessalyn. Actors are just actors. They are not doing anything life changing. They are not contributing to the direct betterment of someone like say a person involved in healthcare. I think his behavior is typical of a lot of actors and people in Hollywood. So this is just not a Christian Bale thing. This is a a Hollywood thing…..this the I think I`m better than you thing. I never thought Bale would go into that realm. But he has disappointed me like every other stupid actor out there. It`s not just him…………that`s why I barely watch movies anymore………I can`t stand actors. Screw you Hollywood.

  • Nigel

    13 and WHAAAA….I got news for you. Actors are ACTORS! They`re not saving lives, they`re not putting they`re a** on the line. Doctors and nurses sometimes have to work huge shifts…..it`s part of the f***ing job descriptions. They do not get paid nearly as much as these stupid Hollywood freaks. Boo f***ing hoo…..I have to work another 2 hrs, because someone ruined my set. All you people who sided with him are idiots. Maybe I`m just bitter cuz I used to be a Bale fan, but seriously, if you think this is hard work, please go work in a hospital.

  • Ricky

    He’s yelling at the D.P. (Director of Photography). I worked in the industry for 33 years. It happens. The DP is always looking to improve the lighting. It makes the actors look good as well as the stage.

    Actors remember this. You are only as good as your last job. Ever hear of the “Black List” (Erik Estrada – Val Kilmer – Don Johnson)

  • alex

    Bale is an assh___. Regardless of whether the lights guy should’ve been there (probably just trying to do his much low paying job), Bale had no right to 1. humiliate him and 2. in front of all his peers. I’m not watching Bale’s movies anymore, no matter how good they are. Directors will soon realize that they have to hire good actors that are ALSO good people.

  • chris

    wise up, nobody deserves to be treated like that, regardless the circumstances. Yes the lighting guy did walk in and bale was in the “zone” and yes bale could have got a little angry over it but there’s no way that anyone can say that what bale did was called for. You could bet bale feels like complete shit about it now.

  • theguy

    i know he deserved that,he is a fucking prick lol
    he was pissed
    ya know wat fuck shane an fuck bruse chris u rock!!

    If Quentin Tarantino ever made a movie about moviemaking, this scene and Bale’s rant would be in it, word for word, for sure :D

  • nzleen

    um wasnt the lighting guy just “looking at the lights” ??
    so isnt that like his job? coz like movies need perfect lighting n all that??
    but atleast a really good song came outta this haha
    haha he went so freakn mental. what an ass

  • PLATOBOY

    I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THE VIDEO….

  • lynchhung

    They spend millions of dollars on these scenes so the guy needs a good ass chewing, however christian bale may have taken it a bit too far.

  • dunamai

    @common sense: Calling the director of photography the “lighting guy” ??? OMG You don’t know anything about how films are made…
