Christian Bale vs. George Clooney in Hottest, Weirdest Feud Ever

Christian Bale

If I asked you to come up with the least predictable celebrity feud in Hollywood history, would you eventually get around to naming Christian Bale and George Clooney? Well, it’s true: Bale is embroiled in a war of words against Clooney, after Clooney had the audacity to complain about his issues with the paparazzi. In fact, Bale wants Clooney to “just shut up” about it. Boys, boys! You’re BOTH pretty. Now take off your shirts and tell Mama what the trouble is.


Here’s what Bale said in a recent interview with in WSJ Magazine, in response to Clooney speaking out about privacy and tabloids:

It doesn't matter that he talks about it. It's like, come on, guys, just shut up. Just get on with it and live your lives and stop whining about it. I prefer not to whine about it. (…) Some people poke you like you're an animal in a zoo, looking for a response. If you're smart, you don't give it to them. If you're dumb, occasionally, like me, you give it to them. And then they've basically got what they wanted. I usually regret it afterwards.

Ha! Well, I totally see where he’s coming from, but I kind of feel like Bale’s got a lot of nerve acting like he’s above getting fired up over petty issues like other people annoying him. Isn’t this the same guy who went BALLISTIC at a cinematographer after he felt a scene was ruined on set when he was filming a movie? Let’s review that happy little moment, and be forewarned, there is all kinds of potty language here:

I mean, come on. He practically had a heart attack cussing that guy out, and for what? It’s not like the dude slept with his wife. Speaking of wives and other family members, Christian Bale was once questioned by police after he had an explosive fight with his mother and sister in a hotel in London. As of 2012, he’d supposedly had no contact with them since.

Just saying, to do an interview where you’re all, oh yeah, I’m totally cool and collected and other people who let the tabloids bother than are just assholes … well, it sorta makes him sound like an asshole.

He’s still an extremely hot asshole though, so as far as I’m concerned he can continue to have a cow about George Clooney all he wants. In fact, the two of them should totally duke it out. In my living room. While naked and coated in oil WHAT I’M JUST SAYING THAT WOULD RESOLVE THINGS ONCE AND FOR ALL.

Team Bale or Team Clooney? Or Team Simmer Down Boys, Keep the Fighting to the Ring?
