Have you ever imagine watching a romantic comedy on the big screen in the comfort of your sofa, and then Christian Bale appear as one of the stars? I believe you would act exactly like I would spill my coke all over the couch by surprise.
Yes, this is our today’s topic.
It’s still fresh in our head how he figured Batman perfectly for years and that brought the storm of negative voices when Ben Affleck was announced to be the next Batman replacing him. Not only because Bale was so good bringing Batman to life, but also because many people think that Ben Affleck has failed in another superhero movie, Daredevil. Recently, Ben Affleck stars a movie entitled “Hostile”.
I think Affleck as Daredevil is cool
Another Bale’s great performance was on The Prestige, a story about two magicians compete for each other to the death. He played twins against Hugh Jackman, a great magician who performs across the street. Another movie who launched his name among the stars was American Psycho, a story about an American… well… psycho. This is the movie where I first know about the essence or a business card. 🙂
And Now The Interview
Time’s up, so a final question: has he considered romantic comedy?
Bale bats the question back with what sounds like a challenge. “Have you ever enjoyed a romantic comedy?” I pause and he presses the point. “Have you ever enjoyed a romantic comedy?”
A few, I say, but my mind blanks.
“Can you name ’em?”
Er, When Harry Met Sally.
“That’s going back quite a ways, isn’t it? You’re hard pressed.” He shakes his head. “I was asked to do a romantic comedy recently and I thought they’d lost their minds. Cats have those insane half hours every evening. I think it must have been that for the production company. I don’t know why anyone would ever offer me a romantic comedy. I find American Psycho very funny.” ~ Theguardian.com
Well, for me Christian Bale on Romantic Comedy is the Comedy Itself, at least for now.
