Talking to Digital Spy recently, The Dark Knight Rises star has made it clear that there's one thing in particular you should never do...piss off Christian Bale! I think he proved that on the set of Terminator: Salvation, and I'm guessing Hardy must have listened to the audio recording on YouTube! In all seriousness though, this is an extremely lighthearted interview, so check it out below and be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place.

"Christian Bale Is Not The Kind Of Guy You Want To Piss Off"

Specially if you're part of the crew and accidentally gets on the scene.
PaulRom - 9/21/2011, 12:00 PM
I can see it now. Bane's holding Batman up about to break him, and Bats is screaming "WHAT DA [frick] ARE YOU DOING!" or "NO! NO!!!".
TheWolfman - 9/21/2011, 12:01 PM
Yeah, that set up between Bane and Batman is going to be brutal...

Haha I can imagine Christian going to Tom on set saying something to this effect:

"Oh good bloody F**CKING JOB TOM. What are you a comedian! That was amateur talking about me in the press, your a god damn amateur! Seriously if it wasn't for me carrying this movie none of you would have jobs. I am a PROFESSIONAL DAMN IT! I AM BATMAN! YOU ARE JUST A BIT PART IN THIS MOVIE. IT'S NOT CALLED BANE RISES! IT'S CALLED THE DARK KNIGHT RISES! ME! THE DARK KNIGHT! NOT YOU AND YOUR F*CKING LITTLE BREATHING MACHINE, YOU MIDGET! I OWN YOU, AND WILL ALWAYS OWN YOU!

Tom looks to Nolan:

Nolan muttering under his breath:
"Just one more movie, just one more movie, remember Chris you said you were going to do a trilogy. How were you supposed to know at the time the guy you cast as Batman was insane."

Bale looks to Nolan:

" WHAT THE F*CK DID YOU JUST SAY!

Nolan:
"Uhh nothing, Christian."

Bale:
"THAT'S RIGHT NOTHING! IF IT WEREN'T FOR ME NOLAN YOU WOULD BE NOTHING. YOU'RE AN AMATEUR AND IF ONE MORE PERSON SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT ME TO THE PRESS THEN I WILL NOT DO A FOURTH BATMAN! WHERE THE F*CK IS MY SOY CHAI LATTE! AND SERIOUSLY I HAVE HAD A HANG NAIL FOR 10 MINUTES! WHO IS GOING TO CUT THIS OFF. F*CKING AMATEURS. ALL OF YOU!" WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT TOM!"

Bane, the actor, seems like a wussy.

- First Tom Hardy says he cried when his feelings got hurt when fans misinterpreted his statement

- Then he says he does his best to please Chris Nolan because he doesn't want to see him get mad

- Now he says Christian Bale is a guy he wouldn't want to piss off

Hardy seems like an alright guy.

Tom Hardy just cry your eyes out.

Bale is a arrogant, egotistical douche. That stage hand should have taught him a lesson by kicking his ass.
yeoldeemoney - 9/21/2011, 12:07 PM
@Jordan Feck you.
Jordanstine - 9/21/2011, 12:08 PM
Can't wait to see Batman doing the breaking in Bane's back.

jjmeylar - 9/21/2011, 12:09 PM
Can we get a print version? Not all of us can watch a video.
Jordanstine - 9/21/2011, 12:11 PM
Someone needs to photoshop this with Tom Hardy's face:

StrangerX - 9/21/2011, 12:13 PM
lol!!
TyrannicalOverlord - 9/21/2011, 12:16 PM
Tiny mug o' tea. Maybe he should have a tiny little dog to walk too. That could make hime look bigger. Maybe stand next to Elijah Wood. That would make anyone look bigger.

Nah, I think he'll do fine. Looking forward to the movie.
OverCross - 9/21/2011, 12:21 PM
I can see why...

Jordanstine - 9/21/2011, 12:23 PM
@OverCross

Loved Psycho.

RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 9/21/2011, 12:26 PM
I like Tom's sense of humor.

"I want to prove to the fanboys how big I can look when the props are the right size."

At least he is having fun with all the criticism about his size. I wonder if Bale would have as much fun...
headlopper - 9/21/2011, 12:36 PM
He's got fanboy-on-the-brain.
I'm tellin'ya' people, those in the movie industry are very mindful of fanboy opinion. They read this stuff we write here, and on other similar sites. They want to make us happy. I feel powwwwweeerrrr!!!!!
Anyhow, this guy was great in 'Inception', ad he seems like a really cool guy off set. Good on him.
Gmoney84 - 9/21/2011, 12:39 PM
@Josh, good article. This is news worth reporting.
Nubase - 9/21/2011, 12:42 PM
he said he ignored the fan mail at first as he was advised to but after hearing his mates talk about the doubts fans has over the his look and size for bane he could not ignore it no more and looked and he said he was hurt at first but totally understands why, but he did say that fans who have doubts will not be dissappointed when the see the finished article on the screen
StrangerX - 9/21/2011, 12:49 PM

Offtopic but when is the main picture on the main page being updated? Its kind of old looking at Superman in his super lizard costume with a look on his face that looks like he is about to order a cup of tea and a scone.

ibravosp5 - 9/21/2011, 2:21 PM
