If you love rom-coms as much as we do (hey, we’re all entitled to our guilty pleasures), you’ll probably be disappointed to hear that Christian Bale will never agree to take part in one.
When the actor was asked about it in a 2018 interview he gave to The Guardian, he seemed to be shocked by the thought anyone would ever think of casting him in a romantic comedy. We believe the words “insane” and “lost their minds” were used. Oh well, we’re still allowed to dream.
A Highschool Dropout
Oozing such impressive intelligence, it's hard to believe that someone like Christian Bale never made it through high school. The actor never ended up getting his high school diploma, as he was kicked out at the age of 16.
We're not really sure if that matters, though, since he didn't really seem to have needed that diploma to get ahead in life. Some people just 'have it' and Mr. Bale certainly has.
If you're not yet in love with Christian Bale, this will surely do it: it turns out that Bale used to train in ballet as a kid! Yes, ballet. Like, Billy Elliot style.
Can you imagine little Christian trying to achieve the perfect pirouette or doing a Pas de Bourrée? Because now we can't stop imagining it, and we're pretty sure we'll never be able to stop.
He's Never Watched "The Dark Knight"
Sounds absurd, we know! But it's true. The actor has confessed to having a really hard time watching his own movie, but it's not because he's hyper self-conscious or anything.
Being the sensitive man that he is, every time Bale even thinks of watching "The Dark Knight," he's reminded of the tragedy that happened in the Aurora theatre. No matter how hard he tries he just can't stop thinking about it.
Wake Up, Sleepyhead
Sometimes we're not even able to fall asleep in a bed properly, so we think it's mind-blowing that Christian Bale was able to fall asleep while shooting "Batman Begins" – but it's a true story! The actor actually snoozed during his first scene with Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine and missed the director calling "action."
He soon woke up, as Caine was poking him in the ribs. Some way to wake up, huh?
