Christian Bale loves playing Batman because it made him rich.
The 'Batman Begins' star, who will reprise his role as the caped crusader in 'The Dark Knight', confesses he was struggling to pay the bills before he landed the role.
Bale told America's GQ magazine: "I've found myself getting paid, and getting paid well—it's unbelievable. I never thought that was going to happen. Not long before I did Batman, I didn't work for a year-and-a-half. I was looking for things, just nothing was coming my way."
The 33-year-old actor even had his mortgage paid for by his agents when he was filming 'American Psycho' because he was so broke.
However, the actor wouldn't swap his unstable career for any other.
He said: "Nothing stays really constant and calm. Maybe I bring it on myself. I'm not sure. I have to admit I'm a little bit of a turbulence addict, because of growing up with it so much."
Bale struggles to understand people who plan out every detail of their lives.
He explained: "What makes me more nervous than anything is knowing exactly what's going to happen. Being with people who are all very polite and have planned lives and do things on schedule and life is going just perfectly for them - I can't deal with that."
