Like him or not, Christian Bale has always been smokin' hot, but some remarks he made about his wife at the Critics Choice Awards 2011 just upped his hotness exponentially. It was backstage, after he won best supporting role for The Fighter last night. Fighting back tears, he spoke about his wife, Sibi Blazic, and how important she is to him.
"I get choked up about that stuff," Bale told reporters Friday. "It's everything because I truly believe you can't celebrate [success] without having your partner with you."
Swoon. There's nothing sexier than seeing a tough guy show his sentimental side. The couple has been married for more than 10 years -- an eternity in Hollywood -- but it sounds like for all his bad boy ways, he's a really good guy who appreciates his wife.
"Making movies takes so much time," he says. "It's not just the time when you're filming. The character is born long before the first day of shooting and so [my wife] had to be married to so many different characters over our marriage. I know that it truly would be impossible to do it without her."
Such sweet words from a man who once dropped the F-bomb 39 times in a four-minute rant. Seems like time is turning Bale into a nicer, kinder guy. Just a few weeks ago he had us voting for him as dad of the year as he belted out the tune to The Powerpuff Girls.
So yes, it's true, Bale is hotter than ever. Still he better remember to drop an F-bomb here and there lest he lose his bad boy imagine all together. We don't like them too nice.
Do Christian Bale's words about his wife make you swoon?
