Christian Bale is a good actor, but I know who I'd rather go for a beer with.
Why does everyone love Bale so much though? I mean, yeah he's a good actor (definitely above par), but he comes across as a bit of a prick in real life and to be fair, some of the movie roles he's most famous for, are fun and memorable roles to play anyway (Bale's Batman and American Psycho are two massively loved and talked about movies so it's no surprise he's got lots of fans from those two roles). I don't care who thumbs me down either, it's just speculation.
Hello by the way :)
Top 3 Bale performances:
1. The Machinist
2. American Psycho
3. The Prestige
Top 3 Robert Downey Jr performances
1. Tropic Thunder (he WAS the movie)
2. Natural Born Killers
3. Sherlock Holmes
I do think that sometimes people can under-rate comedy roles or actors who don't do 'serious' movies. But it doesn't mean they're worse actors. In fact, it's very hard to be genuinely funny.
When's Christian Bale ever played the comedic role? Great actors can do both, like Robert De Niro.
BQ: ummmm. not sure. hope you get it sorted!
