Christian Bale would only star in a romantic comedy if he was homeless.
The 'Batman Begins' star considers himself a serious actor and would only ever agree to appear in a funny love story if he was seriously desperate.
Bale told America's GQ magazine: "I will never say never, but I will say never to doing the more typical romantic comedies. You know, unless I'm getting audited and I'm on the street and I desperately need some dough and that's the only thing that I'm getting. In terms of the romantic kind of lead, I just never enjoy those movies very much."
Bale admits his opinions may change as he ages, but he believes romantic comedies are a total contradiction.
The 33-year-old explained: "Maybe they'll come to interest me more as I get older. I doubt it, but maybe. Romantic comedies tend to be, for me, an oxymoron."
