You know the saying, when life gives you lemons… just add vodka? Well, Lucian Piane (aka RevoLucian) did just that a while back – recreating Christian Bale’s infamous rant on the set of Terminator: Salvation into a hilarious re-mix, and the results are amazing. (So let’s re-circulate it.)
We’ve all heard that some celebs have a reputation for being… difficult. Divas, demands and mood-swings galore, our Hollywood royalty have been known to push more than a few buttons when it comes to their treatment of we petty commoners…
Back in 2009, on the set of Terminator: Salvation, Christian Bale seriously lost his sh-t when he felt that his scene was interrupted by a crew-member. What came next was a temper tantrum of truly magnificent proportions – and no, he wasn’t acting.
The rage-filled episode lasted almost five minutes and contained an impressive number of F-Bombs (just shy of 40, if we counted correctly). Even when the crew-member he’s targeted, assumed to be the director of photography, apologizes and explains that he was ‘checking the lights’ (i.e. doing his job), Bale just can’t simmer down! Bale has since apologized for the rant, but it was still 100% inappropriate – and shocking.
While I do not support minimizing verbal abuse, bullying, or psychiatric episodes of any kind – I do believe in re-framing (You know, making lemonade out of lemons – or adding vodka! Take your pick.). And while episodes of rage are far from a laughing matter, I do believe in laughing – as much as possible, whenever possible, and at anything and everything. In fact, re-directing your thoughts and focusing on the positive is a valuable coping skill to practice in your everyday life! So, learn from the master, and have a listen at RevoLucian’s Christian Bale Remix.
Plus, Bale will forgive us for poking a little fun at him – after all, he is a major Hollywood badass (even if he’s also a Hollywood Hothead!). My favorite part? When he shouts “No! No! No! No!” LOL – just listen.
P.S. I know this isn’t PC of me, but I actually like Christian Bale more after hearing this. Yeah, yeah – we all “get a little bit weird sometimes.” …But really, maybe he just needs a little self-care, like the Free 21-Day Meditation Challenge! After all, it couldn’t hurt for him to enjoy the benefits of an all-natural lifestyle practice that has the effect of taking a chill pill – or 10!
“What don’t you f-ing understand? I’m gonna f-ing kick your f-ing ass!…. GIVE ME A F-ING ANSWER!”
