Christian Bale says reading interviews with other actors make him want to "bang his head against the wall".
The 'Batman Begins' star isn't interested in living his life in the limelight like other Hollywood celebrities.
Bale told America's GQ magazine: "Personally, I often find reading about actors talking about acting make me want to f***ing bang my head against the wall.
"It can very easily become a job in which you're constantly involved in some kind of a circle jerk. Everybody's patting each other on the back, and it's all just a bunch of crap, anyway."
The 33-year-old actor also thinks he will be more interesting to fans if he retains some mystery.
He said: "It sounds very pretentious. It's just that I find people more interesting the less I know about them. Any musicians that I've always liked, any actors, any writers, directors, artists - if I get concrete ideas about who those people are, then it limits their work for me a little bit."
