Christian Bale Gets Angry and Weird About His Acting CareerEver since tapes leaked from Christian Bale's raging rant on the set of 'Terminator Salvation,' the public learned that the real-life Batman is a very, very angry fellow. In a Q&A for Esquire's December issue, Bale is the gift that keeps on giving, as he rips into acting and expresses how he loves it when people criticize him.

Bale says he's got a huge ego, yet seems to hate himself, then comes off like Mr. Family Man. And oh yeah, he's a big Chris Farley fan. Go figure.

On his acting career: "Well, it's also just I'm bored s***less with myself."

On being famous:
"Well, it's embarrassing to be a star. Most people look at you like, 'That's not a f---ing job, is it?' And then on top of that, you learn very quickly that you're just a tool -- other people are manipulating everything you do, you're at the mercy of editors, and there's nothing you can do. But I learned that there's a certain character that can be built from embarrassing yourself endlessly. If you can sit happy with embarrassment, there's not much else that can really get to ya.
