Christian Bale & Drew Barrymore Dated Once as Teens

Christian Bale & Drew Barrymore Dated Once as Teens

Christian Bale takes the cover of GQ Australia‘s June/July 2012 issue, on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 38-year-old Dark Knight Rises star had to share:

On playing Batman: “I have been deeply honored to inhabit this character. It was a massive undertaking. Physically, emotionally, every way. But suddenly we were in the final throes. I sat down and asked for a little space. I stared at the cowl for a good long moment and thought, ‘Man, this one really took on a life of its own.’”

On going out with Drew Barrymore when he was 13: “We went to see some bloody awful horror film, and that was the end of it. She never called again.”

On family life: “Think about how strange and unfortunate it would be for my daughter if I couldn’t just be a dad. You shouldn’t make your children suffer because of choices you make… I get no greater joy than when I’m looking at my daughter and her friends when they’re laughing their asses off. Movies are great but when I look back, it’s the time with my family I’m going to remember. That’s the source of character.”

On his critics: “It’s not that I don’t care what people think, it’s just that it doesn’t serve anyone to get too caught up in that, especially in my line of work. To me, it’s all about having a belief in what you’re doing. That’s how you live an extraordinary life. It’s, ‘How are you going to do things differently than anyone else has done it?’”

    His best performance was in American Psycho. Solid actor.

  • Mikaela

    He’s a public figure and still doesn’t let hollywood inside his home, I admire that he protects and seeks whats best for his family not only for himself. Many celebs who complain that their life is under the publi eye should take his words in advice. People will always try to get in your life it’s up to you keep them out.
