Christian Bale: Seriously Talented

Christian Bale, in my opinion, is simply a brilliant actor. He was born in the United Kingdom in 1974, and is married with a daughter. He has acted in big budget films, but it’s predominantly his arthouse and independent releases I prefer. He is notoriously intense on set, and is said to practice method acting, where an actor stays in character even when not filming, for the duration of the shoot. His meltdown during the filming of Terminator Salvation went viral when it was remixed and posted on the internet. He later apologised for verbally abusing the crew member. Christian's first big role was when he starred in Steven Spielberg’s Empire of the Sun, when he was only 13.  This year he won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Dicky Eklund in The Fighter.

  1. Christian Bale really does get into character. When I watched The Machinist, I was super shocked at how he starved his body!
