SHOCKING: Christian Bale Said WHO Inspired Him For His New Role???
Actor Christian Bale sure made quite a statement about what he really thinks about former Vice President Dick Cheney Sunday night at the Golden Globe awards.
The actor won a Golden Globe award for his performance in the movie, “Vice”, based on the life of Dick Cheney.
It seems that he showed a much different attitude towards the former Vice President than he had during an interview with Fox News in December. During his acceptance speech for the award, he said he was, “cornering the market on charisma-free a—holes … What do we think, Mitch McConnell next?”
Then he added, “Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration to play this role.”
According to Fox News,
Bale previously spoke to Fox News about playing Cheney, expressing his admiration for the former George W. Bush administration member, but he had never spoken about the Republican Majority Leader.
“He was a wonderful family man — he’s a great dad, he’s an avid reader, he has a brain like a vice and he constantly reads history,” Bale told Fox News of Cheney at the premiere of “Vice” on Dec. 11 in Beverly Hills, Calif. ”He was very laid-back. He would have been very happy to be a lineman in Wyoming if he hadn’t met Lynne, who said to him, ‘No, that doesn’t cut it. You need some ambition.’ What would have been if they hadn’t met?”
This seems to be quite a different side of the actor than what he’d previously said.
But Christian Bale also had the following to say about whether or not Dick Cheney would enjoy the movie or find it a bother. He responded by saying,
“I think he’ll certainly find it entertaining, at the very least. I think he’s very thick-skinned — you know. He has no remorse or regrets about what he’s done — he always says, ‘I would do it again in a minute.’ He doesn’t back down — he doesn’t apologize about anything. So, I think he’s a thick-skinned guy and I’d love to hear his thoughts. He’s a very intelligent individual, no matter what your thoughts are about him — he’s a smart cookie. So, I do hope so.”
Late Sunday night, the “Church of Satan” commented to Christian Bale’s speech, “To us, Satan is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential. As Mr. Bale’s own talent and skill won him the award, this is fitting. Hail Christian! Hail Satan!”

It seems that he wouldn’t have said something like this unless he really despised Dick Cheney. But if that’s the case, why did he take the role?
