The Transformer: Christian Bale
After redefining the superhero genre as Batman, Bale is back to doing what he loves best: disappearing into messy, larger-than-life characters—leading-man looks be damned—for fiercely independent filmmakers.

To begin with, there’s the comb-over: A spectacularly ugly piece of business that Christian Bale glues onto his head and into movie history in David O. Russell’s dark comedy American Hustle (out in December). It is, without a doubt, a maverick move, but that’s nothing new for a man who welcomes disguise (The Prestige) and physical transformation (The Machinist). Bale is a bit of a conundrum: Even when he’s the superhero in the title (The Dark Knight), he behaves like a character actor. He never triesto look like a star—even if that is simply impossible, as in Scott Cooper’s gritty revenge drama Out of the Furnace (out December 6)—and he certainly never acts like one. It is perhaps telling that his Oscar is for Best Supporting Actor (Russell’s The Fighter), not Best Actor. “It isn’t about him, it’s always about the character,” Cooper says. “He goes against a large percentage of actors who want to be known for what they do offscreen, who want to be personalities.” That disinterest in celebrity and dedication to keeping his personal life private allows for an uncommonly pure viewing experience. It’s a blueprint you can see younger leading men like Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender, and Tom Hardy following closely. And it’s the reason notoriously picky directors like Russell, Christopher Nolan, Terrence Malick, and Todd Haynes keep circling back. Bale has three major films in progress for 2014, including Malick’s Knight of Cups and Ridley Scott’sExodus. We spoke with the 39-year-old star as he was preparing to undertake a transformation of biblical proportion to play Moses. • Read full story »

He has battled villains the Joker, the Penguin and Ra’s al Ghul and saved the city of Gotham countless times, but Christian Bale has told incoming Batman Ben Affleck that the hardest thing about playing the caped crusader is going to the toilet.

Bale, who became one of Hollywood’s best-known stars during his three-film run as the DC Comics superhero, was asked if he had offered any advice to Affleck in the wake of the latter’s casting in the upcoming “Superman vs Batman” movie. His advice: avoid getting caught short in the Batsuit.

“The only thing I said to him was to make sure to [be able to] take a piss without having anyone help him, because it’s a little bit humiliating,” Bale told Access Hollywood during promotional duties for his new film Out of the Furnace. “You have to have someone … help you out of the costume in order to be able to do that. So that was my main piece of advice for him.”

In a separate interview for MTV, Bale revealed he came up with the deep-throated growl adopted by Batman during the Christopher Nolan years in order to help lose himself in the role.

“They put me in Val Kilmer’s suit,” said the Oscar-winner of his audition. “It didn’t even fit properly, and I stood in it and I went ‘I feel like an idiot’. What kind of guy walks around, dressed like a bat? And is then going to go ‘Hello, how are you? Just ignore that I’m dressed as a bat.’ Of course, he’s meant to be doing this. If you look at the history of the guy and the pain that he went through. I went ‘I can’t do this in a normal voice. I have to become a beast in order to sell this to myself.’”

“I went home that evening, and my wife said, ‘How’d it go?’ I went, ‘I kind of did this.’ And I showed her, and she went, ‘Oh, you fucked that one up, didn’t you?’ Thank God they went for it. [The voice] ain’t for everybody. Ben’s obviously going to have to do his own thing, but it was the only way that I could find how to get into that and to justify wearing the fricking Batsuit. Otherwise, he’s just loopy beyond belief. He’s loopy, but he’s loopy with a method to his madness.”

Bale also praised “Batkid”, aka five-year-old leukaemia survivor Miles Scott. He said the tiny superhero, who saved the city of San Francisco on Friday as part of a huge endeavour by the Make-A-Wish foundation, proved the enduring nature of the character.

“You look at this kid, Batkid … That gives the whole point. It doesn’t matter which actor is playing him. He’s a symbol. He’s so much bigger than any actor. That’s all. This little kid, he doesn’t really care which actor’s playing him. It’s the symbol of the whole thing, and that’s what makes the character so fantastic. I look forward to seeing what Ben will do with it.”

Even the Dark Knight was moved by the goings-on in San Francisco..

It was hard to avoid mention of the Bat-kid online this weekend, and for good reason. It was an enormously sweet story with some amazing images available, a pretty great combination.

Earlier today, I sat down with Christian Bale to talk about his work in the new film “Out Of The Furnace,” and it was pretty obvious from the moment I walked into the room that he was in a great mood. I know Bale has a reputation for being very intense, but I’ve always found him to be a thoughtful, articulate interview. You just have to walk in ready to have a real conversation. Today, though, there was that extra something, no doubt motivated in part by the pride he takes in his work in the film.

I had to ask him about Bat-kid, but not just about the boy. I mean, I think it’s safe to say that no one’s going to be coming out as strongly anti-Bat-kid in the press any time soon. My question was more about how it feels to be part of a legacy that can inspire people the way they were inspired by this story.

One of the reasons I can’t get too worked up one way or another about any of the details that are starting to emerge about Zack Snyder’s Superman and Batman film is because Batman is one of those characters who will continue to be re-interpreted by new filmmakers and new actors over time, and if you don’t like one version of Batman, just wait a while… there’ll be a new one along soon enough.

In this case, it seems to me like Bale appreciates not only what the films meant for him while he was making them, but what it means to be part of something that will continue to inspire audiences young and old in the future.

The ‘Dark Knight’ actor explains that it was his only way to not feel ‘like an idiot.’

When people look back on Christian Bale’s turn as the Caped Crusader in Christopher Nolan’s “Dark Knight” Trilogy, alongside the darker tone and more serious take on Batman, they will remember the actor’s signature Batman voice. The growl was as much a part of the character as his cape and cowl, and back when Bale was originally auditioning for the role, the voice was what set him apart.

As a part of the “The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition,” Warner Bros. released clips from several audition tapes, including Bale’s, and the topic of his voice came up in a new interview with Nolan as he looked back on the screen test.

When MTV News caught up with Bale during a press day for his new film “Out of the Furnace,” he recalled his thought process going into the audition and what it was that made his add the gravel to his voice.

“I got there. They put me in Val Kilmer’s suit. It didn’t even fit properly, and I stood in it and I went ‘I feel like an idiot.’ What kind of guy walks around, dressed like a bat? And is then going to go ‘Hello, how are you? Just ignore that I’m dressed as a bat.’ Of course, he’s meant to be doing this,” Bale said. “If you look at the history of the guy and the pain that he went through. I went ‘I can’t do this in a normal voice. I have to become a beast in order to sell this to myself.’ ”

Even though that voice would go on to define what people thought of Batman’s voice, the initial reviews of Bale’s audition weren’t as sterling as his later ones. “I went home that evening, and my wife said, ‘How’d it go?’ I went, ‘I kind of did this.’ And I showed her, and she went, ‘Oh, you f—ed that one up, didn’t you?’ ” he said. “Thank God they went for it.” • Read full story »

How sweet… it seems we have a Batman bromance on our hands!

Christian Bale hung up his Batman cape last year after the “Dark Knight Rises,” and now he’s ready to “pass the mantle” to Ben Affleck. The “Out of the Furnace” star had only kind words for Ben, who will star in the new “Batman vs. Superman.”

When “Extra’s” Renee Bargh asked how Bale felt about Ben landing the part, he replied, “Good for him!”

Bale added, “He’s a really experienced actor and filmmaker and he’ll do a great job… it was time to pass the mantle to someone else, as it should be. It has always been the case with Batman. I’m sure they will do a fantastic job with it.”

Watch the video for more about Ben, and get Christian’s reaction to Batkid’s adventures in San Francisco!

“Out of the Furnace” opens in limited release on Nov. 27.
