Hot Headed Christian Bale Turns Up the Cool 135

His persistence to win back the American Psycho role from Leonardo DiCaprio: “I just pretended it didn’t happen. I’m English, so I never go to a gym, but for that role it was part of the whole deal that I had to go. I still kept going down to the gym every day because I was going, ‘Oh, I’m making the film.’ I would call [American Psycho director] Mary Harron—she’d be having a nice dinner with her family—and I’d go, ‘So Mary, so when we do this scene….’ And she’d go, ‘Christian, Oliver Stone is directing, DiCaprio is playing your role.’ I said, ‘Right, but you said it, my role, all right? It is coming back, so let’s talk about it, because it’s coming back to us.’ And she’d go, ‘Christian, can you please leave me alone?'”
