Christian Bale Drops F-Bomb 36 Times

Christian Bale Drops F-Bomb 36 Times

Christian Bale dropped the F-bomb 36 times during his nearly 4-minute verbal lashing, according to Today show’s count.

The angry 35-year-old actor was exposed yesterday for screaming and shouting at Director of Photography Shane Hurlbut for ruining a scene by walking onto the set of Terminator Salvation.

“I want you off the set! You prick!” Bale yelled at Hurlbut. “No, don’t just be sorry! Think for one f—ing second! What the f— are you doing? Are you professional or not?”

Bruce Franklin, an assistant director and associate producer on the fourth Terminator film, tells E! News that Bale is a “consummate professional” and he was just having a bad day.

“If you are working in a very intense scene and someone takes you out of your groove…It was the most emotional scene in the movie,” said Franklin. “And for him to get stopped in the middle of it. He is very intensely involved in his character. He didn’t walk around like that all day long. It was just a moment and it passed.”

    well, thats ok then, for a moment i thought he was a foul mouthed impolite idiot. thanks for putting me right!

  • ycg

    why so angry? Problems at home?

  • Eve

    A little damage control here, right? He’s still a major A**HOLE in my book. Idiot, prick and a douche.

  • Eve

    I bet he abuses his wife, since I also think he’s a closeted, therefore frustrated gay man.

  • Vickie

    You people wish you had his talent. So he got a little pissed big deal. Got over it. It was a year ago.

  • Vickie

    His has so much talent, you people wish you where as talented. This was also a year ago why are we still talking about it?

  • hotbitch

    I would’ve cussed his ass out on the spot. Everyone is entitled to a bad day but he’s just a complete ASSHOLE. I don’t know who he thinks he doesn’t have the right to talk to people any way he sees fit. And did anyone notify him that he’s NOT as big a star as he might think?????? Now I can fully believe that he slapped his mom and sister around.

  • nat

    Do you guys remember when he abused his mother and sister last year? I refused to believe their allegations until now.

  • BECKY SMITH

    Wouldn’t you be .. let’s see now.. Bill O Reilly goes off on a rant ..so do a lot of other celebrities..Is there a reason why when the movie is almost finished to bring out a audio tape from last July.. Let’s go to all the sets and get all the rants from the director going off on a actor for
    not doing there scene right.. FROM THE INSURANCE COMPANY SO THAT HE DOESN”T WALK OFF THE MOVIE.. GEE WIZ..LAST YEAR..
    WHEN HE WAS PROMOTING BATMAN..BTW NEITHER IS HEATH LEDGER.. He just won the awards because he represents all the
    oxycondin addicts out there.. and a loser ..!! actor..

  • hhmm

    RIght damage control. A day late a dollar short.

    well, the first time someone blows up it’s the other person fault (family) but this jerk has a problem, i don’t care that he is an actor, he needs to learn how to talk to people, he’s crazy, he needs to be fired and giving anger mgmt. classes, this is not his first offence, stop making excuses for this jerk, he’s not all of that, get someone to replace him and bring him down a notch.

  • BECKY SMITH

    If the DA says that he was having a bad day that is all it was… so what
    is the big deal.. no he did not beat his wife ..If the person he was yelling
    at was o.k with it let the audio go.. or are we going to see another
    Alec Baldwin yelling at his daughter again.. remember that rant!

  • Squaraus

    Being honest, in my life I’ve never heard the f*** word so many times in only 4 minutes! It really got difficult for me to go over the second half of the tape. For what I can say, I think Bale is a sad man full of regrets and a looser-in-life: I’m sure he grew up thinkin’ the world is himself and the others are sh*t. But what I heard is something inhuman and obviously there’s no excuse for his behavoiur, even the eventual psychological commitment in that scene. They say he punched his mother and sister? OK, NOW I BELIEVE THAT. I’m so ashamed to think about all the money these small-inside-actors earn in their life. DISGUSTING.

  • laurie

    What a jerk.

  • um…

    American Psycho.
    All over again.

  • raquel

    #6. Could NOT agree with you more!

    The media doesn’t have anything else on their plate they need to milk this? Give me a break!!

  • Ha!

    Yelling at someone is not the equivalent of beating someone up. And he was never accused of punching his sister and mother – it was said that he physically removed them from his hotel room. Big difference.

    He might have gone on a bit too long yelling at this guy, but the worst that happened is what? The guy who f*cked up the scene they were working on TWICE was embarrassed? Big deal. Yes, he needs to stop dropping the F-bomb, but have none of you ever been mad and yelled at someone? We don’t know what happened before and after this little clip was taped.

  • raquel

    #4 & #5. You have nothing else to input but you think he’s gay? Idiot!

  • dundies

    well thats ok then, for a moment i thought he was just a foul mouthed impolite idot. thanks for putting me right

    LOLOLOL

  • Lillianne

    I guess a better actor would have been able to pick up and do over. I always figured he was a nutcake when he went all Karen Carpenter for that movie.

  • dundies

    UM if Bale was on True Beauty he would have been sent home LOL

  • raquel

    #19. From my friends in UK, I learned that both sis & mom were trying to get monies from him. It’s well known in UK that Chris doesn’t speak to his mother and sister but has helped them in the past. From all accounts Mom and sis started the argument knowing he’s got a temper, then wanted to ruin him in the press by going to police. Now I know why Chris stayed with his Dad in the US!

  • Meg

    Wow! Just think of all of those stress hormones raging through his system! The guy is going to stroke out if he doesn’t learn to control his anger. Everyone can get that mad if they let themselves, it is not hard to do and I am sure that he had a reason to be upset but he needs to learn skills to manage it or his life will not be a good one or a very long one. People are intimidated and afraid of his anger so his relationships will not be as full as they could be if he controlled himself. You can’t just explode and let your rage escalate higher and higher, you can even hear the spit well up, he is just boiling over with rage. Mr. Bale needs professional help or to at least care enough about his life and his family to read and learn about stress and anger management. He has to let go of his ego long enough to help himself though and to be able to admit to himself that he needs management skills and it’s not that everyone else is the cause of his problems with anger issues. I hope that he has since learned to help himself cope with being pissed off in a healthy manner for his sake and those who work and live with him. Wow.

  • raquel

    #22. We don’t know what ‘other’ actors do on set, because we don’t hear about it. Someone decided to post the video, that’s why we know about it now. Chris is an amazing actor — has been since he was a little boy in ‘Empire of the Sun’.

  • Eve

    #20.

    No, Batgirl. I said “I also think he’s a closeted and frustrated gay man”. If he was a happy, openly gay man he wouldn’t be the jerk he is now — with stupid fans like you who defend anything wrong he does.

    The guy is a douche, get the F*CK over it.

  • jain

    no wonder these people are so up them selves, and think they can follow different rules. There are plently of sycophants telling them it’s fine you are an artist. Problem is,, it doesn’t make it right. Talented or not.

  • Lillianne

    Wrong-O Raquel. If another actor embarrassed himself like that you can believe someone would post it on the internet, or at least it would be posted on tmz. He’s lowered himself to a class by himself.

    and ps there are lots of amazing actors

  • Eve

    “…Now I know why Chris stayed with his Dad in the US!” (#24).

    Wait a minute, “Chris”? Awww, that is so cute from you to say. I hope someday he yells at you in the same way he did with this guy — he’s know for being rude to his fans as well.

  • blah

    What a douchebag! First he abuses his mother and sister (which should have earned him a castration right there) and now this. I will definitely not be supporting this a-hole by seeing any of his movies. What a dick!

  • eliza

    There’s no excuse for this four minutes of verbal abuse. It’s not the first time his temper has made news, and it won’t be the last unless he gets help. It’s cheaper for movie people to excuse it and do PR damage control than it is to get rid of him and reshoot with someone else.. But it may affect what he’s offered in the future, no matter how good an actor he is. Get help, Christian.

  • taylor

    Too bad they felt the need to make all those excuses for him. Maybe a simple public apology from him for his verbal abuse would be better.

  • http://justjared SERA

    Two words. VERBALLY ABUSIVE.

    Wonder who else gets to enjoy that side of him, and how often. Let me guess.. It’s always someone “pushing his buttons.”

  • taylor

    To bad he doesn’t live out his name in the purest form — Christian.
    Christ followers are commanded to forgive, just like God has forgiven us!

  • taylor

    Too bad, I mean.

  • joss

    LOL as much as he sounded like a jerk, it was kinda funny

  • BECKY SMITH

  • Ha!

    Seriously, what is the motivation behind playing this tape, which was recorded over a year ago?

  • jay27fromuk

    Im one of the biggest Bale fans, and thinks hes the most gifted out there in the past 13 years, along with Ed Norton..

    BUT…. the guy has alot of pysch issues clearly. but that what makes him good.
    1. He got bullied at school for being an actor
    2. Moved around alots.
    3. What other actor loses near death amounts of weight for a film? ( machinist) ?

    HOWEVER….. you dont make someone feel that bad, ive listened to this 20 times now..he WAS going to actually punch this guy until he got stopped… YOu can put it down to a bad day, but all that hate is from somewhere else.! We all have our bad days…

    In my line of work …life or death… ive seen doctors and nurses drop a few bombs in a similar fashion, but HIS WAS ridiculous…..
    And i cant for a second belive its a one time thing……

    Later

  • Christian Bale

    Becky Smith, what don’t you F*CKING understand? Just Shut The F*CK up already! F*ckity F*ck!

  • uglysexy

    Haven’t heard a Harangue like that since Alec Baldwin Chewed out his
    Daughter on her Phonemail ;p
    But seriously…sometimes crew wanders around crackin freakin jokes
    and snickering….I saw James Woods stop a set and lecture them before
    for those sorts of Transgressions…But he was much more polite ;p

  • jaye

    This was not a one time incident. He has a history of anger problems even as a youth. As for his talent, yeah sure he has real talent. So much talent that most people forgot he was even in The Dark Knight. The man is on a lucky gravy train. He should be grateful that he has a career instead of going off on people because of a mistake. He’s just too full of himself .

  • Christian Bale

    But I can also F*CKING sing!

  • Eve

    Jaye, I think I love you. Man (or girl) I couldn’t agree more with you.

  • Lia

    WOW, no words. I wonder how Bale would feel if someone spoke to his wife or kid like that.

    This guy clearly has issues. And McG can’t even control his set or actors it seems

  • raquel

    #27. I’m a fan but not a blind, deaf or brain dead one. If he’s wrong, he’s wrong! If he yelled at me that way I’d rip his ‘dingalong’ off and I would expect an apology on the spot. The thing is he would NEVER yell at me that way, because if I were a crew member I would have known better than to mess up a scene and (1) cost time (2) cost money. Batgirl? You couldn’t call me something else? Never liked her.

  • BECKY SMITH

    McG can handle his crew and he knew that the audio tape was going..
    so he probably made the DA go and do that knowing that Christian
    would get angry… NOW WE KNOW THAT THE SET IS A PUBLIC DOMAIN THAT THE PUBLIC CAN HEAR ANY AUDIO TAPES AND WHATEVER THEY WANT..

  • tELL IT LIKE IT IS

    #39. I agree wih you 100%!!!
