Christian Bale Wants Celebrities to Stop Whining about Being Famous


Christian Bale has lashed out at Hollywood’s “whining” stars, insisting it’s time for his peers to stop complaining about the paparazzi.

The former big screen Batman tells the WSJ Magazine‘s upcoming December/January issue that he’s tired of hearing stars like another former Caped Crusader, George Clooney, moaning about life in the spotlight.

He says, “It doesn’t matter that he talks about it. It’s like, ‘Come on, guys, just shut up. Just get on with it and live your lives and stop whining about it’. I prefer not to whine about it.

“Some people poke you like you’re an animal in a zoo, looking for a response. If you’re smart, you don’t give it to them. If you’re dumb, occasionally, like me, you give it to them. And then they’ve basically got what they wanted. I usually regret it afterwards.”

He adds, “I was in Italy with my wife. I would go to work; she would leave the hotel. There would be a man who stood outside of the hotel, and he would say the most obscene things imaginable to my wife. Now, that happened a number of times.

“I know what he’s after; he has a strategy there. Am I able to say I’m not gonna give him that satisfaction of angry Christian Bale coming after this man? But equally, he’s killing my humanity and my dignity as a husband if I do not, and he knows this. So you’ve got a choice.”
