Christian Bale has bad days too; ‘Terminator’ rant haunts him

Christian Bale would like everyone to cut him some slack on his rant that exploded on the Internet, when a DP accidentally crossed into his sight line during a filmed scene with his co-star.

“I shouldn’t be characterized by a few minutes when I was having a bad day.”

In Christian Bale’s first interview since his headline-making tirade on the set of Terminator Salvation was leaked, Bale is telling his side of the story to “Extra’s” Mario Lopez.

“We did shoot that movie coming on 77 days…I shouldn’t be characterized by a few minutes when I was having a bad day.”

Bale’s rant went viral in February after an unknown production crewmember leaked the now infamous argument between the actor and Director of Photography Shane Hurlbert, but he admits they’ve moved on.

“The majority of the shoot went incredibly well. It was bad behavior. I made no excuse for it…We all moved on and kept working together.”

Terminator Salvation opens May 21st.

“Extra’s” interview with Christian Bale airs Monday, May 11th
