Even though several filmmakers have excused Christian Bale's expletive-laden rant targeted at a director of photography, Bale is not going that easy on himself. He phoned into a KROQ radio morning show and expressed full regret regarding the situation. [listen to Bale's rant]
"It's been a miserable week for me," said Bale. "Listen, I know I have a potty mouth, everybody knows this now. The thing that I really want to stress is I have no confusion whatsoever. I was out of order beyond belief. I was way out of order. I acted like a punk. I regret that."
He continued: "There is nobody that has heard that tape that's been hit harder by it than me. I make no excuses for it. It is inexcusable. I hope that that is absolutely clear."
Bale has also taken back all the threats he made. "We have resolved this completely...I have no intention of getting anyone fired. There is no problem whatsoever."
And finally, he added: "Feel free to make fun of me at my expense, I deserve it completely."
Christian Bale's Apology: (click play button to begin)
I totally did not need to hear an apology from Bale, considering I don't think he did anything wrong - with the exception of the length of the tirade, which was ridiculous - I thought since the beginning that Bale was just letting off steam, right or wrong. I never took it to heart like so many others have. That all being said, if the ppl out there that wrote Bale off aren't excepting of this apology, that would be unfortunate. Everyone is allowed to make mistakes, the guy messed up, completely admitted to it, no excuses.....everyone should forgive the guy. Done and done.
I thought it was intense.. but thats acting on a set 4 ya.. didnt need an apology but 4 all of the jerks on this site that sed they wanna kick his ass.. he made an unnecessary public apology 4 a bad moment in wat was probably a bad day that was actually resolved immediately.. give ppls the benefit of the doubt.. dont condemn them to wanting to shove a foot up an ass 4 a bad moment that the person them selves regrets the most

Duh-duh-duh-duh-duh Extra Extra! WorstPreviews is now "Extra!"
lol funny how everyone is leaving such nice comments now.... a couple days ago people wanted to kick his ass..... either way i never thought it was THAT big of a deal.... just like another person who posted on here.... other celebrities have done a lot worse.... get over it...
Iam sure he does feel sorry for waht he did, but i think he may have been in order to be pissed off with what happend, but he does understand he went way over the top. At least he understands what he did and is very sorry for what happened!!

I knew this message from Bale would come. Cause he IS a very talented and professional actor who remains human. Big up to you Christian ... you definitely are a movie star because the audience decides so, not because you entitled you as such. Bring on Terminator Salvation, bring on Public Enemies, bring us Batman masterpieces, bring us more!

Schwasted you're an idiot. He finally takes a moment to act like a human being by apologizing and you say he shouldn't have? No matter what other people/celebrities are doing that are worst you still have to apologize for your mistakes. And if it were you getting screamed at by Bale and you said to yourself "well he is the best actor after all", I have something to say about you... Grow some f*cking balls!
it's all good...he's right we all have bad days...his was caught on tape which is probably as bad as it can get...but nobody got hurt...nobody got killed...just a bad day...it's in the past...time to move on...i still think T4 will be better than T3
He sounds like he means it, but he dosent need to apologize to the public. It was hilarious! The thing that pisses me off is how we build up celebrities & when they f*ck up with something or w/e everyone just looses their minds! INTRODUCE A LITTLE ANARCHY! UPSET THE SOCIAL ORDER! let it go, laugh & move on! We all f*ck up here & there.
