As Dark Knight fever sweeps the world, it's nice to see that star Christian Bale can scare the living shit out of people in real life. People he's known since birth. To the extent that they file police reports.
Sources close to the actor said he 'flew off the handle' at London's Dorchester hotel after Jenny Bale said 'some outrageous things'. However, a source close to the 34-year-old actor says Bale is confident he’s done nothing wrong, and blames his mother.
The source said: ‘Christian was stressed, but he didn’t lay a finger on anyone. Instead, he flew off the handle and cussed his mother. He just got very loud because his mother was saying some very outrageous things about him and his wife.’
‘Normally Christian would just call a friend and go out to a pub to cool off. But he was literally trapped into this confrontation with his mother and sister because there was an army of fans and paparazzi outside.’
The source also claimed Bale had been deeply affected by the death of co-star Heath Ledger.
I love how the report points out that Bale didn't physically harm the complaintants, which is obvious since nowhere does it state that Bale's mother and sister have been punched into a different dimension. Add this incident to yesterday's report of a Bale freak-out on the set of McG's Terminator 4 ("I will kick your ass!") and the awesome racially-charged Josh Brolin & Jeffrey Wright Vs. New Orleans Police melée and we are forced to conclude: Actors are metal. Actors Into Metal!
