Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton get buddy-buddy for an official Academy Members Screening of Exodus: Gods and Kings hosted by The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences on Monday (December 8) in New York City.
The 40-year-old actor appeared on Good Morning America earlier in the day to promote the movie.
“I was scratching my head when I heard that,” Christian explained to E! News after the quote was published. “I said, ‘When on earth would I had said that?’ I’ve got immense respect for him and I can’t even begin to imagine the invasion of his privacy. Our lives don’t even begin to compare. He’s a true movie star. I’m just somebody who was lucky to get a job.
“So, yeah, it was possibly just a well-intentioned edit,” Christian added. “But certainly, I never meant any disrespect whatsoever.”
