Christian Bale’s Assistant Accuses Him of Everything Including Having A Small Johnson – Part 3

Part 1Part 2Part 3

In addition to his small johnson, or maybe I should say in subtraction of his small johnson, Mr. Bale went postal in 2009 on the set of Terminator Salvation. I’ve no recollection of this film, probably because I was in the midst of chemotherapy, but I presume it is a movie of distinction.

Seems that the Director of Photography walked around on the set while Christian was filming a scene. This distracted him and I must say that I am on Christian’s side in this. I’m not an actor but I am a creative artist and it takes a lot of focus to employ your talent to the maximum. So all humor aside, it really was rude and unprofessional for the Director of Photography to walk around on the set.

Said Christian:

Am I going to walk around and rip your f—ing lights down, in the middle of a scene? Then why the f— are you walking right through? Ah da da dah, like this in the background.

One blogger actually counted and said Bale used the F word and its variations 80 times in less than 4 minutes. I don’t have the time or interest to do that, of course, but if you want to listen to the whole thing, which I did for reasons of journalistic integrity, then you will find Mr. Bale’s rant below (real audio, fake footage):

Christian Bale’s Assistant Accuses Him of Everything Including Having A Small Johnson – Part 2

I had no idea that writing about celebrities was so much fun or so easy. I’m looking for a job since as my faithful readers know I am broke. Unless I find a job soon, I will have to sell apartment and lots of my belongings to have cash to keep me out of the streets. I’m also writing two books. So I really don’t have time for salacious gossip about movie stars. Yet now that I’ve started to delve into the subject, I’ve made the time because it is so fascinating.

You have no idea of the things I learned about Mr. Bale while researching him including the size of his thing. The hell with all this complicated history stuff I always write about or agonizing posts about surviving cancer. Maybe I will just start writing about movie stars and orgies, which apparently they all attend on a regular basis.

In their review of Christian Bale: The Inside Story of the Darkest Batman, by his former publicist and assistant, Harrison Cheung, the sleuths at Huffington Post combed through this book and uncovered fact after shocking fact. Using bits of actual quotes directly from the book itself, the Huffington Post, drops this bombshell:

On the set of American Psycho, Bale was required to appear nude multiple times. He used a ‘cock sock’ (Cheung says it’s an ‘industry term’), a ‘fleshtone spandex pouch’ which covered his genitalia. Script writer Guinever Turner mocked the size of Bale’s sock, which led Bale to exclaim, “Goddam her!”

Hey, Christian, you should have laughed it off. She’s a lesbian so she probably hasn’t seen many. If she were a gay guy, such as your correspondent, it would have been more of an insult.

In my previous post, I said I was not above enjoying salacious gossip about movie stars. While researching these posts on Mr. Bale, I came across so much salacious gossip about him that I spent several hours reading it all. No wonder so many people make a living writing about movie stars. Having learned all this information about Christian, I feel a duty to blurt it all out to you, my devoted blog readers.

A lot of these backbiting tidbits come from a new book: Christian Bale: The Inside Story of the Darkest Batman by Harrison Cheung and Nicola Pittam. Seems that for many years, Mr. Chung was Mr. Bateman’s publicist and overall “person Friday.” Curiously, according to a review of the book on the Huffington Post, Mr. Cheung was never paid for his work. Says the review:

…their relationship was certainly not uncomplicated.

Certainly the reporter’s syntax is not uncomplicated. Employing this type of sentence construction obscures the meaning of a sentence, either on purpose or because the writer doesn’t know not any better. I think she means the relationship between Mr. Bale and Mr. Cheung was complicated.

Even more stunning, Huffington Post, thank God one of the few serious journalism sites on the internet, says that Mr. Bale recently told GQ Australia he once took Drew Barrymore out on a date though she “never called again.” This is the kind of relevant and in-depth reporting we need more of in our country.

Brokerage Days: From Penny Ante Alley to A “Wirehouse” – Part 1

Part 1Part 2Part 3Part 4Part 5Part 6Part 7

As a young adult, I worked for a “wirehouse” in Palm Beach, Florida, “wirehouse” being the expression in those days for the large New York brokerage firms. In decades past, these companies had been some of the first to connect all their offices across the country by telegraph and later telephone wires. Hence the term, “wirehouse.” For example, Merrill Lynch Pierce Fenner and Smith was a wirehouse. (Known in the trade as either Merrill, Mother Merrill, or MLPF&S.) Buffalo Bill and Moosejaw Brokerage Firm in Timbuktu was not a wirehouse.

The firm I worked for, which I refer to by its fictitious name of Dewey, Cheatam, and Howe, had a large office in Palm Beach because of the vast number of rich people who lived there. Unfortunately, all the other wirehouses had offices in Palm Beach, as did all the major New York banks. Each day a fierce battle went on to get clients, usually stealing them from other firms who were trying to steal your clients. One big happy family.

Christian Bale as the deranged stockbroker and serial killer in American Psycho. Many guys I knew in the brokerage business thought this a natural combination.
