A Bruce Wayne with a beard and bouncy hair?
That's what Batman fans might have been wondering when Christian Bale appeared at the January 16 Golden Globes ceremony.
But 36-year-old Bale says his slightly unkempt style isn't for his upcoming role in "The Dark Knight Rises" — it's just because he's lazy.
"This is unemployment, this is all this is," he told "Access Hollywood." "I haven’t worked since 'The Fighter,' and it's nice to just not bother cutting your hair. When you're [not] in a job that everything always has to be, you know, worked out for a character, I just sort of let it all hang out, but it's unemployment, that's all it is."
Still, it won't be long before the chameleon-like Golden Globe winner gets groomed again.
"In a couple of weeks I’m starting a movie in China with Zhang Yimou, a wonderful, fantastic Chinese director," he said. "I'll be doing ‘13 Women [of Nanjing]' before I start on 'The Dark Knight Rises.'"
Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.
Christian bale has great hair, longer is much more flattering than the militaristic buzz cuts. But the lighter red facial hair – trademark sign of British Isles – is gross, and should go. He's got a somewhat strange mouth, and its much more interesting and effective to see, when he is acting at least.
Please, Christian, get the mole removed.
Gee, he's unemployed? Why? He's so personable and easy to work with..
...personable and easy to work with..".
Good one, beenz, THAT was funny!!
Bale already played Jesus btw look it up.
Wonder if he's getting unemployment, under the current system millionaires can get the same benefits someone that's broke can get.
Did he say he's gonna do 13 women before his haircut? He can get more women than that..I'm sure
what's up with that nose?!
I thought he looked totally HOT at the Golden Globes!!!
With all due respect to Mr. Bale, I am sure there are people unemployed far longer then them who would love a sliver of his pay for doing the movie. Seems like a very indulgent statement.
I didn't get that from his comment, it just sounded to me as if he wanted to take a break from having to keep in character. Nothing different than when I don't shave when I'm on vacation for a week. And at least the hair looked clean and styled and the beard nicely trimmed, umkempt beards and hair look awful.
And don't even get me started on Annette Bening's bed hair, LOL...
Wait, he ended by saying that he's going to be "doing" 13 women? Freak'in show off!
he looks like Jebus!! yes i wrote Jebus
I just don't understand all the hoopla over Christian Bales. I think he's a d*m jerk.
Is Depp playing the Riddler?
Bale and Depp are pimps
.....who gives a crap. This guy is an azzhole. Lest we forget that little diatribe he spouted to that stagehand two years ago....what a self absorded azzclown.............
Gee lil Miss Hypocrite weighs in – being an azzhole with a tirade of her own....
Lets talk about those H0's on Jersey Shore!!! Who did Snooki bang? The important stuff in life....I dont care the Christian Bale has pretty hair...hope he has no split ends...still a crappy actor!!
He looked gorgeous!! Very do-able..... :)
this guy is a great actor. but really, does anyone care about his hair?
Who cares? It's just hair.
He looks like Jesus? well, he is Christian.... lol...
The world is mostly a mess and we are here discussing christian bale's hair..pretty sad....
.now, what's snokie been up too??
Yes because its ok to occasionally have a conversation about something that doesnt revolve around the "mess" the world is in.
I think he is on drugs..or a cross dresser..he looks like Jesus..err i mean charlie manson..err or that branch davidian guy that burnedbto the ground...maybe he is the saviour who has finally come to save us from our sins....hahahahaha
he looks creepy...
Is there no spell check on this blog? before u start to comment on someone's looks, maybe you need to learn how to spell!! by the way, i think bale is a self-absorbed tool, but he's a good actor.
hee hee – Since when does 'u' qualify as the correct spelling of 'you' and your capitalization skills stink!
Down with everything.
Id like to do 13 women of nanjing
So glad that Christian Bale finally got a role that is bringing recognition to his terrific (as well his chamelon) acting.
Typical. He's cool and hot and just enjoying unemployment...if a Halle Berry showed up with out make up and bad hair it wouldnt be tolerated. He looks like he hasnt showered in days and man its a red carpet event you cant use a razor???
Hmm ...yeah what woman would get away with just letting herself go? Still, it does work for him!
first, there is nothing wrong with johnny depp's look. second,people can look how they want. Doubt your opinion matters to them.
let's not upset him bout dat hair either. He beats ppl up.
Let's not turn this into a hairy situation, folks. Move along.
I would so make out with him...and I'm a dude..ok, a transgender gay pedophile. But that's just me.
It looks like someone laid a steamer on his head...
oh my god hes Jesus
Depp is an embarrassmenroti the human race for long hair and poor attire? What does that make Jesus? How about u not criticize people for something that doesn't concern you?
You know, we don't actually know what Jesus looked like...just how he's been represented in art since the middle ages.
"How about u not criticize people for something that doesn't concern you?"
ROFL... and yet you criticize?
someone should take their own advice.
I like it when people complain about people who complain...so I'm not complaining!!
He looks great with long hair, I think he can pretty much do anything and still look awesome.
I agree.....it works for him, he's such a cutie...
at least he looks a lot better that johnny depp. he was an embarrasement to the human race dresssed like he was
at the golden awards. you would think he would do something with that hair and face he lools like bumb.he is
so overrated paid and everything else. he should have tool off with jolee when they were shooting that weird
movie. she good at wrecking homes, maybe he was to ugly, but she did take brad had.
This is the most incoherent blob of a mess I have ever read.
Ha this mess of a blog is amusing to say the least. This is better than the article!
I to was learned in emerica.
Sounds like someone is jelouse!
Did a small, uneducated child write this post? Wow, scary that there are people like this out in the world.
Bennet is hooked on something, and it isn't phonics.
First, learn how to talk/type. Half of what you said didn't make sense. I looked up Johnny on the night of the Globes. He looks just fine. He looks like he always does. The man is a chameleon! Chameleon's make wonderful actors. You're just jealous. On a side note....Christian could play Jesus lookin' like that!
You all do realize that people post like this idiot just to make people start talking about them rather than the article. Honestly, someone this uneducated could not even read this article. It's a gimmick. There is no way someone could possibly be as stupid as Bennett and actually post anything at all.
Hey he looks better than Tom Brady!
You've got that right!
It's a good look for him.
Makes him look really relaxed and comfortable.
The Fighter bombed at the box office making only 67 mil.
In comparison Little Fockers has already made 130 mil
I think people are still disgusted over Bale assaulting his mom and other improper behavior.
Glad we have an expert in the movie business here to help explain to us how an R-rated drama about boxing and a PG-13 family comedy can totally be compared like they're the same thing. Good job not bothering with logic.
I'd love to hear how a movie that cost $25 million to make and has grossed almost $60 million is a flop. I didn't major in math, but I'd make that investment any day of the week.
Look so much better if he would get rid of that damn mole on his nose, right on the side by his eye. It's sooooo distracting and unattractive:/ Especially when they do close ups on him during a movie.
The hair does look kinda cool, he oughta pull and tie it back, sumurai style, it could really work for him.
I'm just envious that I can't do that with (what's left of) mine anymore.... :-)
