    Wouldnt surprise me as he is a method actor.. right?
    Sounded like the DP messed with his line of sight twice. He should of went with the Batman voice though.

    I heard about this on the Sideshow forums yesterday. Bale was pissed. I hope he was just having a bad day, because if he normally acts like that, than he is a total D bag.

    I feel sad for both Bale and the dude he was barraging. Bale because I hope he's just having a bad day or he's really a jerk, and the dude because man... that was humiliating.

    I dunno man. The feeling I get from the whole thing is that this DP guy has walked onto and ruined a scene more than once.

    And if so, he deserves every bit of that berating that Bale gave him. :lol 

    On a side note, it's interesting how his accent comes back when he's in full tirade.

    From what I hear Bale is known for his temper and yeah, I got the impression that the other dude messed things up for him on more than one occasion. I'd be pretty pissed too if the same person kept screwing things up for me and making me do my job two and three times.

    I heard this on Stern this morning and I was hysterical. It's funny to see that Batman is actually crazier than the Joker.

    I think it all depends on exactly what that DP -did- do. None of us could actually see it.

    My favourite part was McG being absolutely useless to the situation. :lol

    I'm glad this thread hasn't just been a bunch of people bashing the dude. We can all fly off the handle sometimes. When it's a celebrity, most people are quick to forget all the times they've ever gotten way too pissed about something so they can beat em down with the judgment stick.

    If this DP really does have the habit of wandering into parts of the set he shouldn't, particularly during the filming, perhaps it doesn't call for him getting screamed at but it's definitely an amateurish mistake that can bring everyone else down. Tons of money gets tied up in those movies, they can't afford getting behind because some guy keeps popping up where he shouldn't be.

    Jesus, that's crazy. First Michael Phelps is caught with a Bong, sponsors standing by or uncertain, now Bale goes bonkers. Theses people need to be more concerned with their actions and how they can project a negative image upon themselves and their personal achievements.

    After listening to the audio, apparently "Shane" A.K.A. Shane Hurlbut has walked in on a scene more than once.

    But if I were the director, the one thing I'd want my cast and crew to understand is that on a movie there there are people everywhere, and that as in any part of life, shit happens. Honestly, I'd tell them both to shut up, calm down, and get back to work. End of story.

    Bale's outrage makes himself sound like he fails to realize that mistakes happen anywhere & anytime, even as he ironically complains that he believes Shane still does not realized what it is he's done wrong(ruined the scene).
    I understand that the work must be very stressful on everyone, but I think Bale went too far with his anger, he keeps insisting that Shane doesn't "realize" and Bale doesn't quit complaining. It's almost as if he was trying to carry on his tirade as to start a fight just so he could physically hurt Shane for his error, and not just seem like he ran up and punched the guy. The audio also sounds like a few guys run in and are holding back Bale as if he tried to charge at Shane and attack him.

    Whatever the true case may be, people just need to realize that you can't control everything -stuff happens unexpectedly & people make mistakes.
    When life gives you Lemons, make Lemonade. Just don't deal with it the way Bale did, he'll take the Lemons and squirt the Juice in your eyes instead.



    Looking back, I honestly think the only people who should ever had the right complained on a movie set with such anger and frustration were the entire cast & crew of Raiders. Dysentery or Food Poisoning for all, yeah that must have been fun. Then again, it did give us one of the most iconic scenes in all of film.
