Christian Bale on the one time he dated Drew Barrymore

“Dark Knight Rises” star Christian Bale hasn’t forgotten about a disastrous date he once had with another Hollywood A-lister.

The actor told GQ Australia that he once took a now-engaged Drew Barrymore out on a date, but when it was over she went M.I.A.

“We went to see some bloody awful horror film, and that was the end of it,” he recalled of the movie they caught as teens. “She never called again.”

Bale didn't go into what wrong, but clearly the actress is not the one who got away. The 38-year-old star has been married to wife Sibi Blazic since January 2000, a choice he’s called one of the best he’s ever made.

"It's everything,” he said of Blazic’s undying support of him at the 2011 Critic’s Choice Awards. “I truly believe you can't celebrate something like this without having your partner with you. Making movies takes so much time, and it ain't just the time that you're filming, the character's going home from the first day of shooting."

As a result, his wife's “had to be married to so many different characters over our marriage, and some women might say, 'Hey that's great! Variety is the spice of life,'" Bale said. "I know that it truly would be impossible to do it without her, and she's such a good strong woman. I owe everything to her."

Barrymore, who is engaged to Will Kopelman, was recently spotted in New York City trying on wedding veils.

    I wonder how Mrs. Bale enjoyed being married to "Patrick Bateman" while they were filming "American Psycho?" 🙂

    I keep coming back to his statement that "she never called again". Isn't it the guys thing to call the girl back for the next date? Lol..

    They look like sister and brother in those photos. Maybe that had something to do with it.
