Apparently Christian Bale had a major rant on the set of Terminator Salvation when the director of photography accidentally interrupted his scene. You can listen to it here. Warning though - Its pretty intense and the language isn't pretty!

I think he's a fantastic actor but what a primadonna!
I wonder if he has heard this and what he thinks. I would be mortified.

There is a Mumsnetter (forget which one) whose DP works in the film industry; she said that at one prosthetic fitting (I think) her DP was not allowed to address CB directly but had to relay every request via a personal assistant.

Wow, he really is an egomaniac.

JackBauer · 04/02/2009 09:52

so I am no longer a fan of CB then!
and he was rubbish in dark knight.

For those with little ears around, here is a transcript!

MamaG · 04/02/2009 09:53

I'd still shag him

brimfull · 04/02/2009 09:56

I haven't a clue who he is tbh.

JackBauer · 04/02/2009 09:57

Well yes, MamaG, obviously I still would.
I just think he's a bit of a tosser now.
So would be forced to gag him first

PortAndLemon · 04/02/2009 10:25

It's possible you're giving this scenario too much detailed thought, JB...

Oh he is on my '5 allowed famous shags'. I LOVE his moputh. Well, his lips, not his potty mouth...

Still would though as long as he stopped talking long enough.

JackBauer · 04/02/2009 10:33

I give a lot more detailed thought to Jason Statham, I mean, CB isn't even on my list.

belgo · 04/02/2009 10:49

Wow. He's not very nice is he.

HeadFairy · 04/02/2009 18:25

Nice, he beats his mum up and he's a bully.

JackBauer · 04/02/2009 19:34

? Headfairy?

HeadFairy · 04/02/2009 19:49

I was always a bit about this story but it sounds increasingly likely having heard this rant. He sounds like a right bully.

JackBauer · 04/02/2009 19:55

Have just played DH that clip and the story. Is quite impressive for his PR people that this (him being a complete knob) has been kept under the radar.

southeastastra · 04/02/2009 20:12

i don't like his american accent

hehe i bet loads of actors are like that

HeadFairy · 04/02/2009 20:12

Until now.... perhaps like Tom Cruise he took the fatal decision of changing his publicity person. Often a flood of bad stories come out about a sleb when they change publicity people.

wintera · 04/02/2009 20:54

This sounds like a scene from The Wire!

Really have gone off him after hearing this. I have a real problem with actors who treat people like shit. Sounds like a fecking egomaniac! His accent is really odd too. He is British isn't he?

Yes, he's Welsh. But he's been in the US for aaaaaaaaaaaaaages.

HeadFairy · 04/02/2009 21:24

So has Catherine Zeta Jones but she doesn't sound like a NYC cab driver!

PortAndLemon · 04/02/2009 21:32

Maybe she does when berating directors of photography?

HeadFairy · 04/02/2009 21:33

LOL, I did have a friend who worked with her on Zorro and when she loses it (happens quite a lot apparently) she goes VERY Welsh

People from the film industry were defending him in our paper Unbeleivable ego...
