DJG / Message to Actor Christian Bale: YOU ARE NOT IMPORTANT...and certainly not PROFESSIONAL.

"The Dark Knight" didn't do it for me, but I was hoping for a solid addition to the "Terminator" family. Not now. As if his recent acting wasn't bad enough, I officially have lost all wish to support new Christian Bale work. I had heard that he had some a-hole in him, but wow, he is now the official definition of a complete a-hole. I tend to either become saddened or lose respect for "artists" when they start to play God with their gifts. He's officially lost my respect and support. I tend to have a fairly long fuse and a hefty grace period...and especially in the entertainment industry and Hollywood...I look beyond personal life and actions beyond the silver screen lining and focus on the work and enjoyment in front of me. I understand the idea of "having a bad day at the office", but this is completely uncalled for, unprofessional and simply not a way to tattoo yourself to this Earth. I realize that there were words said on both sides, but I feel the lower totem pole was simply trying to explain his position and not be an a-hole about it...unlike the golden boy Bale. And besides, Bale stopped acting professionally for me after "American Psycho" and "The Machinist", so I don't feel I'm missing out on any so-called "art". Thanks, but no thanks. Hollywood, critics and film fans, I hope this makes you think twice about supporting such garbage. ARNOLD, please come back.

Wow, do you feel better? Such personal feelings over something that you weren't even apart of, because unless you were attached to his hip, you were not there. Now, I'm sure you probably won't even post this, but I want to let you know, that everyone is human...just like yourself, and are entitled to bad days...just like yourself...and probably have a little bit of an a-hole in themselves...just like yourself, judging by your rant. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but to belittle someone and call them names doesn't make you any better than what you are accusing Bale for doing. I'm all for different opinions, but your post is hypocritical and non-founding. It's a rant, and un-professional. You can delete this after you read it, I really don't care, and I will not respond to you. Just wanted to let you know, maybe the next time you write, constuctive criticism: more fact, less personal feeling. Your true colors are showing.
