The Very Personal Reason Why Christian Bale Loves To Work On Movies


When discussing his role in the “Machinist” with the Los Angeles Times, Bale had a very simple reason for the extreme weight loss: he liked the script and he wanted to do it, saying, “I recognize a lot of people would just say, ‘What was the point? It’s just a movie.’ Which I can’t really disagree with, but I decided that it was one that I wanted to do this for.” While seemingly a very straightforward reason, most of us probably still don’t understand. Thankfully, he’s given us a bit more clarification.

While promoting his newest flick “Amsterdam,” for which he also fulfills the role of producer, Bale sat down for an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. Accordingly, Bale doesn’t like to watch movies, so THR asked if he can’t enjoy them because of his extensive knowledge of the film industry, dating back to when he was a child, landing his breakout role in Steven Spielberg’s “Empire of the Sun” at the age of 13.

Bale explained that while he can certainly enjoy a movie, he prefers making movies and learning about people. “I love making films, and I really love being able to get obsessive and really study people. I’m absolutely clueless when it comes to people. I always read people wrong,” Bale intimated. “My friends and family say that I’m the worst judge of character. I don’t read the room right, ever, and because of that, I’m eternally fascinated in trying to figure people out.”
