Christian Bale was surrounded by females from an early age, but we’re not referring to him being a charismatic babe magnet. Bale actually has not one, not two, but three sisters! So he absorbed quite a lot of feminine energy growing up.
His sister Sharon is in computers, but the other two are artsy types like Christian: Erin is a musician, and Louise is a director and actress. Sounds like our kind of family.
An Avid Sleeper
We think sleep is one of the purest forms of pleasure life has to offer, and we were glad to realize Christian Bale agrees. Honestly, what can be better than a good night's sleep or a refreshing afternoon nap? (The answer is: virtually nothing).
Bale once said that if he could, he would sleep for 12 hours every night. We can relate, as we do it ourselves every now and then.
A Seasoned Traveler
As Bale's mom was a circus performer, the entire family was on the road a lot when he was younger. This meant that as a child, he was constantly moving from one place to another along with the circus his mom worked for, meeting new people and experiencing different sceneries.
We think all those travels as a kid must have helped make Christian the interesting personality he is today.
Other than having an actress sister and a circus-performing mother, Bale has some acting skills in his genes that go even further back.
It turns out that Bale's grandpa used to be a children's entertainer and a stand-up comedian back in the day! That's like, eons ago, but we still think it's super cool. Guess the acting bug really does run in the family, huh?
A US Citizen
People who hear Christian Bale speak English in a flawless American accent might find this hard to believe, but the Hollywood actor only became an official US citizen in 2014!
He applied for American citizenship back in 2010, but it took a while for the naturalization process to be completed. Anyway, it's all good now, and Christian is a true American.
