Christian Bale got a bad rap when he was recorded on the set of Terminator: Salvation going off on a director of photography when he messed up a take by walking on set. It was unprofessional but most likely an unaware accident. Bale did not take it lightly and let it be known. I mak no excuses for the man but I do understand that sometimes tempers flare up. He has proven time and time again since that anger is not his go to emotion. After the Colorado Dark Knight Rises theater massacre he went out to show his support for the victims and his empathy for the tragedy. He has also visited children through the Make-A Wish foundation.
