In Defence Of Christian Bale

OK, by now i would imagine that just about everyone has had a listen to, and a good giggle at Christian Bale's apparent "rant" on the set of Terminator Salvation. if you have somehow missed it, you can download the - and note this - unedited version by clicking here. and hats off to the genius who came up with the "remix dance" version of it which you can download by clicking here.

now, jokes and laughs aside, it's difficult not to sympathize with Christian Bale in this incident. a film scene takes hours, if not days, to set up, and of course costs a few million dollars to make. an apparent professional wandering into the middle of it isn't very wise at all; one loses lighting, set-up and so on. when an actor fluffs his or her lines, they can at least pretty much start again - not so the case when the actual set is disturbed.

also, people seem to have missed out on Mr Bale acknowledging that the intruder is a "nice guy". i think the tirade was to make sure the guy, or anyone else, did it again. there are certain "luvvies" out there that would have ensured that the guy was fired and never worked again.

happy listening!!!!

be excellent to each other, and respect film sets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
