While promoting her new film, He’s Just Not That Into You, Drew Barrymore admitted that she has had a 20-year crush on The Dark Knight star Christian Bale.
Which, on any other day, would be fine. You know? But yesterday, some audio leaked of a 4-minute Bale tirade directed at the Director of Photography on the set of Terminator Salvation. (If you haven’t heard it, head on over to here, but plug in your headphones, because the language is filthy.)
So I found the news of Barrymore’s love of Christian Bale kind of funny.
“He’s so cute. And I knew him when he was a kid. He was in Empire of the Sun. If he walked into the room now, I would totally clam up. Or I might go overboard and embarrass myself.”
The thing about Christian Bale is that this instance was probably a once-a-year type of thing. Just one of those days, I suspect. But now he’s getting roasted in the media, and because of things like YouTube and embedding video in blogs, his tirade will never disappear.
Which is too bad, because Bale is a really good actor. But good for writers because it’s out-of-the-ordinary material that everybody seemingly wants to hear.
