Oh. My. God.
Well, at least we know how Christian Bale manages to keep coming up with all these brooding, slightly scary performances in films such as Batman Begins & Dark Knight, The Machinist and, errr, American Psycho: it’s because it seems that he’s actually a bit of a British Psycho.
It seems that just days before being arrested for assaulting his mother (he was later released without charge), he had a little run-in with the Director of Cinematography on the latest Terminator film, in which he’s starring. TMZ have all the details and it really is worth a listen as he totally loses it and doesn’t come out of it well at all (if only because his transatlantic accent is so bloody annoying).
A few choice quotes:

You’re un-f**kin’ believable… I’ve never had a DP behave like this!
I wanna’ f**kin’ kick your f**ckin’ ass if you don’t shut up for a second!

Seriously, you and me, we’re f**kin’ done, professionally. Fuckin’ ass!
