That Christian Bale Meltdown With Peter Griffin
OK, so. If you don’t remember this from about four years ago, Christian Bale blew up on a guy on set. Director of Photography person if I recall. But for some reason, I can’t help but think that Peter Griffen from the TV show Family Guy was involved.
During the production of the 2009 sequel Terminator Salvation, lead actor Christian Bale was caught on tape having a meltdown, and here’s what happened.
Watch the video of the ordeal unfolding.
Just a little Rant, right?
Apparently, the Christian Bale Meltdown was to be blamed on him being way into character while on the set. I don’t believe that at all. This is your typical rich self entitled rich boy having a temper tantrum, it’s as simple as that. Now he has to do damage control to save face.
Bale said he had been trying to express the “craziness” of his character John Connor, leader of the human resistance against their machine overlords, but mixed up fact and fiction when he launched his attack on Peter Griffin. “I’m half John Connor, I’m half Christian there,” he said.
Christian Bale has apologized unreservedly for his widely-reported meltdown on the set of the new Terminator movie, calling it “inexcusable” and admitting “I acted like a punk”.
The actor’s foul-mouthed tirade at Terminator Salvation director of photography Peter Griffin was released onto the internet. Griffin had made the mistake of walking into Bale’s eye-line during a take on last July’s shoot.
In a lengthy apology, Bale, who admitted the past week had been “miserable” for him, told presenters Kevin Ryder and Gene “Bean” Baxter: “I was out of order beyond belief. I make no excuses for it.”
He added: “There is nobody who has heard that tape who has been hit harder than me. The one thing that disturbs me so much is that I’ve heard a lot of people saying that I seem to think that I’m better than anybody else.
“Nothing could be farther from the truth. I am a lucky man, I never forget that and that is why I put so much into what I do, and why I care so much about it, and why sometimes that enthusiasm just goes awry.”
In my opinion, to which you all are entitled, it that the Christian Bale Meltdown is nothing more than a baby having a bad day. And instead of taking ownership of his bad behavior, he tries to blame it on his acting skills of owning a character.
I know when to call Bullsh*t when I see or hear it.
The Christian Bale Meltdown was just that. A meltdown.
No word yet oh how Peter Griffin is coping with all the media attention.
