Naturally, there are compelling arguments on both sides of this sensitive issue. I've boiled them down below:
Reasons You Probably Shouldn't Lust for Christian Bale Anymore:
- He sounds like a complete and utter asshole.
- This ugly outburst makes that whole pushing his mom business seem a little more distasteful.
- Most of his rant is delivered in an American accent, which is really sort of pretentious and show-offy.
- Seriously, who talks to people like that?
Reasons Why It's Okay If You Still Do:
- He can do berzerker rage in an American accent, which makes him sort of talented.
- At least it wasn't directed at his 11-year-old daughter. Remember, we've all forgiven Alec Baldwin because he's so funny on 30 Rock!
- American Psycho was awesome and already sort of inured (even endeared?) us to the idea of Bale as a twisted Adonis who might lose it any minute.
- Everyone already thinks women love assholes. So, why not embrace it and love a really well-known asshole?
- Christian Bale would never talk to you that way!
I say: It was only 36 F-bombs. Lust on.
