Christian Bale is known for many things, from getting his big break at the age of just 10 starring alongside Rowan Atkinson, to portraying the iconic Patrick Bateman in the 2000 movie American Psycho.
With nearly 50 titles in his filmography Bale is without a doubt a talented actor and takes his career incredibly seriously. As well as being prepared to drastically alter his looks just to get into a role, he also alters his accent during press interviews. The 40 year old Welsh actor speaks with an American accent when he’s promoting movies with American characters. According to him, the other way around would confuse the audience. Thanks to his devotion to his craft, Bale was the very first non-American actor to portray the role of Batman.
There are 3 projects coming up this year starring Bale – Knight of Cups; Exodus: Gods and Kings; and an as yet untitled drama directed by Terrence Malick.
