What Happened To Going To Disney World



You know, in the old days after something successful happened to you, a camera would be put in your face and someone would ask what you were going to do next and because you were getting paid a gazillion bucks by Disney, you would reply that you were going to Disney World.

Christian Bale obviously wanted to take that into an entirely new direction. Instead of Mickey and Minnie and a parade, Christian prefers fists and a trip to the pokey. Allegedly on Sunday night, Christian assaulted both his sister and his mother. Police, ever mindful of not letting justice stand in the way of celebrity decided to hold off arresting Christian until after the UK Batman premiere which were where the above photos were taken. The top photo was in random photos yesterday.

Now, from what I understand, mom and sister were not seriously injured in the assault, but I'm assuming that if they had been near death that presumably the police would have arrested Christian before the premiere of the film. It is pretty sick when the police actually say publicly they didn't want to upset the premiere of a film despite the fact a guy allegedly assaulted two women.

So why mom and sis? The only thing I can think of is that perhaps Mr. Bale was taking one too many substances he shouldn't have been taking and mom and sis tried to intervene and allegedly got laid out for their troubles. Where was the wife when all of this occurred?

"The Sun newspaper said police did not question Bale on Monday because they did not want to interfere with the premiere."

Jesus fucking christ. Who said celebs don't get special treatment.

i think mom and sis probably tried to move in on the the big pile of blow that he was doing. I know how big a pile i would be doing if I was Batman.

greedy bitches

Geez, Enty, you could wait to get the full story before jumping to conclusions. That's not to say that he didn't get the good old "star treatment" from the cops because he obviously did.

Whatever happened to "innocent until proven guilty"? Unless you know something we don't and would like to share it outiside of a blind item? LOL.

I'm just having a hard time believing he'd do something like this. He's smartly stayed out of the gossip radar for most of his career, but who's to say this isn't a case of freeloaders getting mad that their cash cow won't give them any milk? People have certainly done meaner things for the almighty dollar, or pound in this case.

A Pimp Named DaveR said...

@ecfan -- you're not innocent until proven guilty in England. It's vice versa.

Jackson Griffith said...

Wonder if he coolly discussed the arc of Huey Lewis' recording career when he was pounding on mom and sis?

Mr.Yardeeds said...

Christian in the past seemed like a really nice guy, but of late, he has seemed out of it.

Seriously, check out some of his promo interviews for Dark Knight, he just seemed sorta off mentally. he has been basically a jerk talking to reporters if you ask me.

Dunno if it is drugs, pressures of super-stardom, or Health Ledger questions, regardless, he has just seemed wacky of late, so this story of beating his family doesn't surprise me.

mooshki said...

"...wait to get the full story before jumping to conclusions."

LOL, wouldn't that basically eliminate this site altogether? :)

what is eight past six? said...

mooshki, I believe that might undo the entire existence of the internet. Well, except for the porn, of course.

orangebartlett said...

does anyone remember a blind about an actor raping his wife and her not leaving b/c of kids? he was about to star in a blockbuster? am i mixing blinds?

Jazz Hands said...

Yikes... Assaulting your mom and your sister? That's low, low down.

Jesse D said...

I like Christian Bale, and think he's a great actor - I LOVED him in American Psycho. But. He looks like a "meth face", to me. I say this from experience, having "lived the life" for three + years and married the dealer. Yep, I can pick the winners LOL

sassafrass said...

orange, will you find that blind, please?

kris said...

hmmmm....I am wondering if Ent is actually trying to tell us something...mayber CB isn't as nice and wonderful as we all think..

jade said...

ok when i saw a screening of The Machinist he was asked how he lost the weight (he was already bulked up for batman at the screening) and he said with a straight face "a lot of coke" and my friend and i were like oooh look, he wife is not laughing along with everyone else....
umm i'm just throwing that out there.

orangebartlett said...

sass, I will try, but earlier came up with nothing. let me see.

Unknown said...

Guess this explains his 3am walkabouts, too much drugs.

littlemanwhatnow said...

yeah, orangebartlett i tried to find it too. i bet you are not far off with that one.
nice work!

justsaying said...

This ran June 23:

You might want to cover your eyes for this one. It is pretty rough. B list actor. A list name recognition. Award winner for sure. (Not Ben Affleck lol) He's been married before. Films. All the time. Serious roles. No comedies for this guy. Not married now, but in a relationship with a non-celebrity. She's pregnant. Apparently she has told a few of her close friends that our B list actor rapes her often. She is afraid to go to the police because he is a celebrity and she is pregnant with his child and of course even though he rapes her almost every night, she of course still loves him.

mooshki said...

That blind wasn't a wife. Link

mooshki said...

Maybe you got it mixed with this one?

mooshki said...

From IMDB: "Dropped an amazing 63 pounds for his role as the emaciated insomniac Trevor Reznik in the film The Machinist (2004) with only a single vitamin consultation with a nutritionist to guide him."

I guess we can guess what kind of "vitamin" that was.

jax said...

i dont know why people have such hero worship for this prick he's said himself and i quote:

"If people knew what kind of jerk i am in real life maybe they wouldn't adore me in public like they do"

ya where was the wife and daughter?

orangebartlett said...

Yep, that's exactly the one that I mixed! Good catch.
On the plus side, i found GREAT blinds that I missed in June, so it was a fun, if erroneous, search.
:)

ECFan said...

A pimp named Daver - LOL. I meant in THIS COUNTRY. I was talking about fans jumping to conclusions that Bale had hit his mother and sister. Turns out that wasn't the case. In the UK you can get arrested for verbally assaulting someone.

Did Batman's Bad Mouth Trigger Bust?

Posted Jul 22nd 2008 12:30PM by TMZ Staff

Christian BaleThere are reports circulating that Christian Bale was arrested for verbal assault, and one of Bale's reps is echoing that.

Who knew, but we called around jolly old England and found there is such a thing as verbal assault, Class 4 and Class 5. Class 4 is more aggravated than 5, with "an intent to cause alarm."

Was Christian's offense mouthing off to mom? We're checking.

ECFan said...

Justsaying -

That BI can't be Bale because he's currently married and has been married since 2000. He also hasn't won any major awards.

I was just going to say that the British press is reporting that the charges are VERBAL assault but I see someone has beat me to it.

jax said...

must have been one hell of an argument to have mom rat you out to the cops.

or a hell of a PR stunt.

Lori Johnston said...

The latest is that Bale's mother and sister have been longtime addicts and/or alcoholics, showed up at his London hotel while he was out and demanded to be let into his room. When refused, they unleashed a verbal assault on the hotel staff. When Bale returned, they verbally assaulted him, with his mother throwing punches at him. Bale pushed or shoved his mother outside his hotel room and she fell. She then notified the police that she and her daughter had been assaulted by Bale.
Sounds to me that jerky or not, Bale is more the victim here than his family.

Lori Johnston said...

I don't think Bale can be the subject of that blind. He has only been married once, to my knowledge, his daughter is around 3 and his wife isn't currently pregnant.
I thought it was about Ethan Hawke, whose girlfriend (at the time it was written) was pregnant. She is still pregnant but is now his wife.

mooshki said...

From his spokesperson: "Mr. Bale, who denies the allegation, co-operated throughout, gave his account in full of the events in question and has left the station without any charge being made against him by the police. At this time, there will be no further comment by Mr. Bale."

Unknown said...

*sigh* But I love Christian Bale.

Lux Luthor said...

So they released him without charging him with anything. This is looking more and more like a non-story.

Michael Strangeways said...

the whole thing is fishy as fuck. You have a family row in a hotel, leave the hotel to go to your own home in a different city, then hours later, go to the police station to file a report?

And no charges are filed.

I think Ent needs to post an update to this story so people are clear about it and not jump to the apparently erroneous and false conclusion that Bale was beatin' on his helpless little mum and sis.
Maybe he IS a jerk, but they certainly sound like a piece of work...

Joanna said...

Psychoticstate - I agree. Sadly, this sounds more like a family feud with a couple of leeches rather than any major revelation. I usually jump to diss celebrity treatment and hate the whole "oh, they were just trying to ruin his reputation!" *cough*MichaelJackson*cough*KobeBryant
*cough*R.Kelly*cough* but from what I see it actually seems the case here. The mom, sis, and police are refusing to push it any further and I doubt that if they had evidence that he physically beat them it would have blown over so fast. He's always avoided the vast majority of gossip behavior, so this seems a little out of character (even if it turns out he really is a jerk in real life).

shoe addict said...

i agree w. sully
i think christian is a big star now and has gotten used to doin his blow in the open (as hollywood norm) and forgot his manners. and mommy and sis insisted he put it away and he batted them away from his remaining supply of good columbian. there's a drought right now, ya know! with the current/historical success of batman this is NOT the time to b wastin good coke...did they flush it? how much? an eight ball? he has bullshit press to get thru!!
he went nutz. non fame seeking momz and sisters do interventions on big stars. they got btwn him and his coke..trust!

shoe addict said...

he's a big coke head. mom and sis went to the station after he pushed them out of his drug den. if he doesn't stop they will go further and expose him and his heavy drug habit to the press. because its so out of character it soundsa like an intervention ultimatum to me. after eva mendez i believe any of them could b using..,,,with all this hollyweird pressure..even Batman could b a drug addict..gasp!!!!enter batmusic...

shoe addict said...

also ent says, where was his wife....ride beside him..On January 29, 2000, Bale married Sandra “Sibi” Blazic (born 1970), a one-time model, make-up artist, and personal assistant to Winona Ryder; Ryder co-starred with Bale in Little Women

shoe addict said...

according to hollyweird make-up artist graduate to pers. assist because they r the stars dealers.
how many blind items have u read about the star letting/dating some guy in her circle because he was her dealer. its not that uncommon outside hollyweird if u hang with people who have money and too much time on their hands...def the case in chi

Dead Angel said...

It's so sad a great opening for a movie that is the last full acting parts by Heath Ledger, and his retarded family does this - he's got to be horribly embarrassed by this.

He was spoken to about 4th degree verbal assault. He won't be charged with anything. Sad family, he never talks about them for good reason. He must have dreaded being in England for this reason. His wife and daughter are with him by the way, lots of pics.

Unknown said...

Verbal assault?!? Jeez, the police in the US must be relieved we don't have that one in the books! My own family would be a bunch of felons...seriously, Bale's mother and sister sound like a couple of losers who have sour grapes for some reason. Cash flow cut off? Who knows, but even if CB isn't likeable, he really doesn't seem like a violent person a la, say, Russell Crowe or Sean Penn.... Just my two cents.
