    he's a great actor but the dark knight really went to his head. He was a little unprofessional.

    A great actor can do the scene again. If anything, actors realize there will need to be more than one take for the simplest of reasons like a bottle falling off the table.

    I don't know what happened. I really don't. But it does seem he went off the deep end.

    I act for free in my local community- and our director stops us every single line almost during rehearsals up to the last day only to correct staging.
    We want to scream, aren't making millions, but we usually just smile and keep going. If I worked with a guy like this, I'd laugh in his face and Heath Ledger his *** with an upstaging.

    Problem with guys like Bale, Tom Cruise, Travolta etc. is that they've lived like royalty so long they think they are royalty.. Great coupla lines in Too Fat to Fish about Cruise always jumping rope to pump up for a scene then being a total ***** to anyone who isn't an a-list celeb.. Bale's greatest "acting" was done years ago with his Patrick Bateman role.. Funny all these years later he's just as much as a self-indulgent snob as Bateman.

    Harrison Cheung, who worked for Bale for many years as an assistant, told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper that the actor had a hair-trigger temper for as long as he knew him and that his family catered to him.

    "Everything was about keeping Christian happy because he was the meal ticket," Cheung said. "If something wasn't just so, Christian would just erupt. He would yell until he was red in the face. It was very intimidating."

    I'm not saying its a great movie. Only that Bateman was a well-acted role.

    Meh, this happens all the time. Some actors are douche-bags. It's why I don't like famous people.
