Christian Bale doesn't like films.
The 'American Psycho' star - who first appeared in Steven Spielberg's 'Empire of the Sun' aged just 12 - enjoys acting, but isn't interested in watching movies.
Bale, 33, revealed: "I'm not a movie buff. It's been an awfully long time since I've gone to a movie.
"I have nothing against them. I would just say that I've never been an avid fan, and would never consider them essential to my life.
"I love acting in them, I just avoid them."
The 'Batman Begins' actor - who will reprise his role as the Caped Crusader again in 'The Dark Knight' - has also admitted he was never very interested in the comic book superhero.
He said: "I was never a Batman fan".
Bale's latest movie, '3:10 to Yuma', is a cowboy adventure co-starring Russell Crowe, but he claims he knows nothing about westerns.
He added to Britain's The Times newspaper: "I feel people expect me to have a great knowledge of westerns, but I don't."
'3:10 to Yuma' is released later this month.
