[Christian Bale] kept on saying no to this role of John Connor, until the script got to a place where he could find something interesting.
Bale says he didn't do "a -- of a lot of research" into the back story of John Connor.
And he explains that "Terminator" is not high brow stuff and people do come to see the machines but adds, "the human story is something that is our job to flesh out."
Dear Mr. Bale:
Your film, Terminator 4, was directed by someone whose best film remains Charlie's Angels.
Shut the fuck up.
