Christian Bale’s Terminator Salvation rant – stay off the fucking set man!

ANYONE who follows film in any way knows how intense Christian Bale can be.

He takes method to a whole new level, like when he lost all that weight for the Machinist, or bulked up for Batman.

But on the set of Terminator Salvation he outdoes himself when some poor bastard had the temerity to get into his eyeline on set while he was doing his job.

Listen to it here.

It’s not just the sheer intensity of the bollocking, it’s the length of it – he is unhappy and lets the Director of Photography know it again and again.

I love the moment his voice breaks at the start, how his accent veers from American to British, and when he says that we’re done professionally. Brilliant!

The lesson being, don’t get in his eyeline.

    He’s got every reason to be angry. Some person moving around could ruin the movie about the giant robots destroying the Earth. The McG directed T4 could be a mess, a mess I tells ya. Could to see the director’s got a good grasp of the set there as well.

Tell me what you think
