This should be in off-topic.

General Discussion is for Giant Bomb/Gaming related topics only.

Wrong Message board

any man that hits his mother has real problems.

#5 Posted by Why_So_Serious (803 posts) -

NO. I heard about this today. He is one of my favorite and most respected actors. This can't be true!

#6 Posted by Win (541 posts) -

Holy Batcaves Batman! That's not cool.

#7 Posted by Met2609 (555 posts) -

When I first heard this, I pulled a Darth Vader from Episode 3:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

He's one of my favorite actors, I hope he doesn't go to jail. Unless of course he actually did assault his family members, then he definitely should.

#8 Posted by suneku (2997 posts) -

let's hope this isn't the start of a tragic fall for another Dark Knight star

#9 Posted by Otacon (2208 posts) -

Yeah, not very good news at what should be a high time for him.

Remember to post stuff like this in Off Topic in future. General discussion still has to be video game related.
#10 Posted by BoG (5181 posts) -

Off topic thread belongs in off topic.
Well, ON topic (for the thread) I just read about this on Yahoo, and that is pretty crazy. Of course, how many celebrities go to prison? I think Bale's arrest isn't really a huge deal.

#11 Posted by WorldsFastestShrimpPeeler (458 posts) -

Wow, Don't know why'd he go this low, after making bucks.

#12 Posted by banksrob (1126 posts) -

the curse of the new batman movie or what

#13 Posted by Foil_Charizard (345 posts) -

Of course he was, didn't you see the end of the move?

#14 Posted by Jax (461 posts) -

Big deal. People have problems, - he's still human. They could have been hitting him up for money, or black mailing him, or a number of things. Who knows. Why speculate? Personal business.

#15 Posted by pbhawks45 (736 posts) -

My bad about putting it in the wrong board. Thought I was in the off-topic place. Got confused. :(

#16 Posted by Termite (2398 posts) -

Hmm, his personal life is his personal life I guess.

He is one of my favorite actors though

#17 Posted by ATotalMelvin (72 posts) -

He's turning into the American Psycho he played a few years back it seems.


#18 Posted by Chokobo (1228 posts) -

that sucks.  He is one of my favorite actors besides Edward Norton and Johnny Depp.

#19 Posted by Karmum (11517 posts) -

Not the best time for this to happen, well, not at all, actually.

#20 Posted by Shade (120 posts) -

He is an american psycho after all.

#21 Posted by WhySoSerious (646 posts) -

That's ridiculous.  Celebs are getting too crazy.  I think it's the "I have a ton of money so I can do whatever I want." mind set.

#22 Posted by Jesus_Juice (251 posts) -

That sucks

#23 Posted by WickedCobra03 (2102 posts) -

Did he actually just yell at them or what?  I mean if they went to the premiere with him they couldnt have been too shook up.  It will only take time to actually tell what happened.

#24 Posted by stAtic (1638 posts) -

Too bad. He's a great actor. Hope he pulls through ok.

#25 Posted by LaszloKovacs (1139 posts) -

Yeesh.

Let's hope this isn't the start of a trend - I've always rather liked Christian Bale.

#28 Posted by SmokeyDaBear (110 posts) -

That is messed up.

hahaha, if that event ever happened, I'd be out at night looking for the bat signal.

Probably. This is if the allegations are true.
#32 Posted by Jonathan (654 posts) -

Wait, physical or verbal assault? Even I sometimes argue with my mother, but it never gets physical.

#33 Posted by Whight_Knight (707 posts) -

I dont care if he plays Batman, he's still an asshole for doing this.

Although, he could get out on Bale ...

C wut I did thar?! *Bad dum pssht!*

#34 Posted by Microshock (341 posts) -

Well maybe being the Batman in the movies got to him or something?
But it's just suspicion of  assault and he's already out on bail or something.

Why not? Just more free publicity for The Dark Knight.

That's messed up he shouldn've hit his mom

#38 Posted by Jonathan (654 posts) -

**UPDATE**

"Posted Jul 22nd 2008 12:30PM by TMZ Staff

There are reports circulating that Christian Bale was arrested for verbal assault, and one of Bale's rep is echoing that. Who knew, but we called around jolly old England and found there is such a thing as verbal assault, Class 4 and Class 5. Class 4 is more aggravated than 5, with "an intent to cause alarm."

#39 Posted by Jonathan (654 posts) -

Man, I love the puns posted at Digg

"Looks like Bale needs Bail...."

"It wasn't very "Christian" of him."

"I wonder if he hit them with a bat, man."

While not a pun, I do love this one: "It was probably Harvey Dent, Bale's just taking the fall"

#40 Posted by henjin (829 posts) -

Now why did he go and do that...

Celebs are no different than us regular people.  They don't go beating each other up because they have more money.  The only reason it seems to happen alot is because people like you keep classifying them as "different".  They are human.  Get over it.

I am quite sure Bale isn't the first person to be accused of hurting family members, just like I am sure that Lindsay Lohan wasn't the first person to snort cocaine.

I agree with you. But it was verbal, not physical assault.

#45 Posted by CleverLoginName (678 posts) -

Oh whatever, he's not going to prison. "Stars" get arrested all the time and most of the time miraculously avoid bars. Unless he sent his mom or sister to the hospital they'll drop the charges and boom, over.

#48 Edited by Kevin (369 posts) -

If anyone can hit their mother and sister, It's Christian Bale.

They probably said he needed to tone down his voice in the movie and Bale went haywire.

Christian Bale is Welsh is he not though? Or was this because the report was made in England?
