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].

    Christian and Heath were NOT friends just because they were in a movie together.

    This makes him so ugly. No wonder he looks 50 not 35 because he is an angry sad soul. He treats the DP,producer and even director McG with no respect and professionalism. Many work places have stress moments but hostile violent people are not to be tolerated.

    Geez, so his tempers are common. He had a spat with his relatives last year. Now we finally learn he lost it again. What kind of show is Kitschy McG trying to put on? He can’t even get professional people on board.

    Since this got released publicly, I guess it means that the people on the set were “done professionally” with Bale’s tirades and were happy to let the world know what a tool Bale is to work with. Gives us another perspective on what the incident with his sister and mother might have been about in London last year. Dude’s got serious anger issues.

    For those sticking up for the temperamental actor, it was not Bale’s place to correct that crew member. It was the director’s. The director is in charge on the set and if he felt there was a problem with the crew he would take care of it. This is nothing more than a typically overpaid egocentric actor going off and pitching a hissy. What he needs is a director who puts his spoiled a$$ in line instead of a crew that tries to sooth his psycho behavior.

    Bale has had too many of these incidents. Seems like he’s gotten cocky since the success of the Batman films. The guy is playing pretend for money, not doing brain surgery. Seems a little too self-important when what he does isn’t saving the world. Maybe he’s mistaken his pretend hero portrayals for the real thing.

    If the Director of Cinematography is walking into a shot, one would suppose that from his POV, the shot was hosed already. The men behind the camera have ONE job, and that is to make the actors *look* good. Where Mr. Bale gets off screaming like a spoiled child is beyond me, when from a technical standpoint there very WELL may have been a problem with the lighting. If the actor wants to waste time and effort going through a scene that isn’t being shot correctly from the beginning, fine, but let that extra cost come out of HIS pocket. Yes, having to do something over or being interrupted is frustrating but it wasn’t a live performance in front of an audience so this outburst was inexcusable and unprofessional. I have much sympathy for the crew that had to endure such a screaming tirade.

    Some people here are trying to tell us in a condescending way that it was OK for Bale to go ballistic because the DP walked on the set. Sure the DP may have screwed up but it was completely unprofessional for Bale to talk to another human being that way. No excuse whatsoever. He sounded like OJ Simpson on the 911 tapes. Bale sounds like a monster. I also want to know why the Director didn’t stand up to Bale and tell him to pipe down. That DP should have spoken up. But that’s how prima donnas are made- no one stands up to them

    To all the ones out there that think he had this outburst because he was so torn up over Health Leader’s death, you have another thing coming. First of all, Christian didn’t even like Heath that much, and second of all, this happened in July around the time that The Dark Knight was being released. It’s a known fact that Christian was MAD AT THE FACT that Heath was getting all the attention and Christian was basically overlooked. Hardly anyone even recognised that he played in the movie…it was all about Heath and his “wonderful and amazing” acting skills..no one said SQUAT about Christian Bale’s performance. Why..because Heath dominated the set and even in death he dominated the Premeire of The Dark Knight. Christian is a seriously sick person. Something people don’t know about him, is when he was a kid on the set of Empire of the Sun, he was caught “burning kittens” by pouring kerosene on them and setting them on fire. He was said to laugh hysterically as the kittens ran around screeching. The money of the film is what kept that out of the media..they didn’t want anything messing up the reputation of the CHILD STAR that would become the violent Christian Bale of today.

    The guy was a stupid klutz to be wandering around during the scene and I don’t blame Bale in the least for being furious. I think the producers should fire him pronto and apologize to Bale for his actions. He was stupid and unprofessional.

    I think that Bale is extremly talented and professional actor. Ok, maybe he overreacted a little, but come on, that dude should do his work properly. Not hanging around while shooting!

    I bet, you would be mad as well. He deserved Bale anger it 100%!!!

    Don’t write Christian a Diva, you know nothing about him…

    I was a fan of him and his work..
    but him as a person..
    seriously.
    I don’t get how he could think so highly of himself to be able to yell the **** out of that guy.
    Maybe, he could have yelled at him, even with curse words and be ‘get out of the ******* scene’ but to carry on..
    how immature.
    Christian, you probably won’t be reading this..but grow up. You’re not 17 any more. You have a young kid, and honestly, what the hell you psycho!

    Nic Says:

    The DP wasn’t “wandering” on set, he wasn’t NOT doing job, he just made a MISTAKE to walk in on a scene to check the lightings because its his JOB to make sure the actors look good. And to those who say its A-OK for Bale to scream his ****** head off because he’s tired…overworked…had super long hours… Guess what geniuses he’s not the only one doing that. All Bale has to go is put on some make up and act when the director shouts action. The real manual, hard work is done by the people BEHIND the scenes and they are paid 1/100 of his salary so don’t tell me he has the right to verbally abuse someone because he’s “tired”.

    Gb Says:

    I always thought that Bale was kinda creepy.

    I see three douches.
    DP: messing up the scene,
    Bale: going ballistic
    McG: not taking charge.

    One day Bale is going to meet his match. It will be an interesting day.

    I doubt McG will ever work with Bale again

    DONDON Says:

    What a f%*king jerk! YOU’RE AN ACTOR DUDE, not a f**king brain surgeon!! It’s not life or death! I swear, if I were that lighting guy, I would have lost my job right after I’d laid his ass out!!!

    He may have been right to be upset, but I don’t think it’s ever right to speak to another human being that way.
