Okay, so just about everyone with an Internet connection has listened to Christian Bale’s verbal tirade on the set of Terminator Salvation, which leaked just a few days ago. Now, the star is speaking out for the first time about his expletive-filled explosion aimed at the film’s director of photography, Shane Hurlbut. On February 6, Bale called the Kevin & Bean show on Los Angeles’ KROQ radio station to clear the air, E! Online reports.
"The thing that I really want to stress is I have no confusion whatsoever. I was out of order beyond belief. I was way out of order. I acted like a punk. I regret that,” Bale said. "There is nobody that has heard that tape that is hit harder by it than me. I make no excuses for it. It is inexcusable. I hope that that is absolutely clear."
Bale explained that he and Hurlbut had reconciled following the on-set outburst, and that there were no hard feelings between them."We have resolved this completely...I have no intention of getting anyone fired,” he said. “There is no problem whatsoever."
Regarding those who have been mocking his rant—including Los Angeles-based producer RevoLucian, who transformed it into a dance track—Bale admits that he had it coming. “Feel free to make fun of me at my expense,” he said. “I deserve it completely.”
