The One That Laughed Until His Drink Came Out Of His Nose. . .

This whole Christian Bale rant thing. For those who don't know, he was recorded embarking on a very eloquent and sweary rant against some bloke on set who was walking around, or something, during a take. Apparently this isn't done.

Al-Beeb broadcast the clip, unedited, on the BBC1 Breakfast show. Cue much consternation. This wasn't what made me laugh.

What made me laugh was a report on the BBC website from yesterday, and it just goes to show how precious these people are, and how very, very seriously they take themselves.

Darren Arnofosky, director of the Oscar nominated 'The Wrestler' had this to say about the incident:

'People are out there working really hard and exposing themselves, especially actors, and they need to be protected.'

Jesus, sounds like a goalkeeper being clattered by a striker from a corner in a game of naked football. He continues:

'He could have been doing a deeply, deeply intense emotional scene.'

Hmmm, do you think? The final line of the report?

'Terminator Salvation is due to be released in May'

I'm assuming this isn't going to be like Shane or How Green Was My Valley. Perhaps a little perspective wouldn't go amiss?
