Everyone is bashing me for saying this, yet everyone is behaving exactly as they are expected to.
Everyone here is all “OMG, Bale is awesome! I wasn't a big fan before, but now I'm a HUGE fan! I love Bale!!!! I'm masturbating to him right now!!!!! How dare anyone say anything negative about this great, great man!”
This is what the point of his visit was. It's all by design, your mindless & extreme support of someone you don't know is by design. This is how it works.
I suggest you watch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prTarrgvkjo
It's a great documentary
I worked in the gaffing department for Rescue Dawn, and everyone (below the line) on that production knew what a jackass douchebag Bale really is. If fact anyone I know (below the line) that has worked with him says the same thing.
