Christian Bale is back-pedaling on recent remarks he made about George Clooney in a magazine article, insisting he didn’t mean to disrespect his fellow former Batman.
The Dark Knight star singled out Clooney during a rant about “whining stars” who complain about the paparazzi in the new WSJ Magazine, but at the New York premiere of his new movie Exodus: Gods & Kings over the weekend, Bale insisted he didn’t mean to take aim at the newly-married movie superstar.
He said, “I certainly didn’t mean it aimed at Mr. Clooney; I think the world of him, I respect him immensely.
“I can’t even begin to imagine the level of intrusion he has on his private life.”
What do you think of Christian re-thinking his words about Clooney? I feel like all the Batmen should have each other’s backs, but let us know your thoughts on the whole thing in the comments below!
