Christian Bale Completely Loses It On Set

(Above: Director, McG, and actor, Christian Bale, from Terminator IV)

The gossip website TMZ just broke this story today about actor Christian Bale who went ballistic on the set of Director McG's Terminator IV when the D.P. apparently walked onto a shot (or possibly the rehearsal of a shot) onset. I'm gonna post this one and let the audio speak for itself. Click below to listen...


Was Christian Bale in the wrong here?
Was the D.P. at fault?

Should the director have stepped in?

Will this hurt his career?

Is this really enough context to form a judgment?
How would you handle this situation on your set?

Is it ever okay to talk to anyone this way on set?

I wanna know what you think. I believe this is a real Hollywood learning opportunity.

Leave your comments below, better yet, call in or hit the chat room live tomorrow (Weds.) night at 9pm to discuss more at the top of The Double Down Film Show. Tomorrow's special guest will be casting director, Sig De Miguel.

It's never OK to treat someone like that. Why do Hollywood actors take themselves so seriously?
