Christian Gets Baleful

Film star flips on director: "Stay off the f---ing set"

During the filming of Terminator: Salvation, in which he plays an older, whinier John Connor, actor Christian Bale flipped out when the director of photography walked onto the set in the middle of a scene. Now the actor’s memorable rant has been made available online, so everyone in the world can hear him tell cinematographer Shane Hurlbut to “stay off the f—ing set” because “my mind is not in the scene if you’re doing that.”  But the angry actor has a defender: assistant director Bruce Franklin has declared that Bale is a “consummate professional” who just had a bad moment when Hurlbut broke his concentration. Yes, we all know that playing Batman and John Connor is an intense artistic experience that no one should mess with.
