Have I mentioned lately that Christian Bale is a fucking self-important nutball?

Christian Bale has hit back at "patronizing" suggestions he picks movies that require him to lose weight, insisting it is "horrible" to drastically alter his body for extreme roles.

"To be honest, I find it laughable that it's considered some f**king gimmick -- it's so patronizing. For God's sake, do people not understand what a pain it is to do? It's as though it's some comment about, 'Oh, it's easy for him, because he's done it a bunch of times.' It's not easy, it's not fun -- it's horrible.

"I would never pick to do that, but (playing Eklund was) a part that I like and he's a welterweight and he's a crack head. I don't know about you, but I've never seen a welterweight with any fat on him - or a crack head. So it's just what you end up having to do. Somebody told me that somebody wrote something about my 'trademark weight loss'. I'd just like to p**s on that guy's shoes."

You just know that a guy who is that crazy committed to his 'art' would be a real peach to be around in normal life. How can anyone life up to the high opinion he has of himself. I saw it since 'Empire of the Sun'. Thank god Batman wears a mask so I could take myself out thinking it was him for awhile. It was the only way to enjoy those movies. Can't stand him. His acting style is all ticks and walking around with his mouth open. I hope he strokes out preparing for another of these extreme roles.
