Christian Bale freak out
Actor Christian Bale freaks out in profanity-laced tirade at cinematographer Shane Hurlbut on 'Terminator' set

Tribune wire reports
    7:32 PM CST, February 3, 2009

Batman actor, Christian Bale is the focus of a newly surfaced audio in which he engages in a long, profanity-laced verbal freak out to cinematographer Shane Hurlbut. Bale also lashed at anyone who tried to calm him down on the set of " Terminator Salvation," the upcoming movie in which he is starring.

The Web site TMZ.com first posted the three-minute freak out on Monday and has become a viral sensation on the Internet. Bale's rant has even spawned a dance music remix of the audio tape.

In it, the actor who portrayed in "The Dark Knight" rails against cinematographer Hurlbut for apparently walking behind co-star Bryce Dallas Howard and through Bale's line of sight, considered a film-set foul.

"If you do it one more time I ain't walking on this set if you're still hired!" Bale howls in one of the few publishable moments from the clip.

Later, he screams: "Do you want me to go and trash your lights? Do you want me to go and trash them? ... Then why are you trashing my scene?"

The incident took place last July on the set at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico, days before Bale would face assault allegations from his mother and sister in London. Charges were never filed because his family did not want to press the matter and because prosecutors said there was a lack of sufficient evidence.

Bale's is the only voice that is audible on the tape, though he's clearly responding to Hurlbut, the film's director McG, and others trying to persuade him to relax.

"Let's not take a (expletive) minute! Let's go again!" he yells at one point.

A phone message left early Tuesday with a publicist for the 35-year-old actor wasn't immediately returned.

Meanwhile, Bale has become an unwitting music sensation because of the incident.

Music producer Lucian Piane — who goes by the name RevoLucian online — remixed the verbal freak-out into a three-minute-long hypnotic dance track titled "Bale Out." Piane uploaded the beat-driven track Monday to MySpace and YouTube, where it's already received over 200,000 views.

He said he was drawn to the musicality of Bale's rage-filled voice. He previously released remixes online featuring Sarah Palin, a ranting Bill O'Reilly and Andrew "Don't Taze Me, Bro" Meyer. Piane said the satirical remixes are "just a hobby."

"I think most people are enjoying it," said Piane, who added that he created the pulsating tune in just three hours and is currently at work on RuPaul's next album. "I don't know if Christian Bale is enjoying it, but I hope he does. I think I've taken something that maybe made him look really bad and turned it into something that all these people are enjoying."

Old news (Family Guy already used it in an episode, too), but I had to chuckle at the irony of calling oneself a professional whilst, at the same time, losing your cool immensely on someone else on the set.

Oh, Christian.

In all honesty, me and my friends were disappointed when we heard about the apology.

Never knew he was Welsh till i heard about this, or that he was the kid out of "Empire of the Sun" which is a great movie. It was funny hearing him have bits of British accent merge into with his rant.

I don't get why he needs to apologize for something so trivial. So what, he yelled at someone. Who cares?

Your own fault for having a name like "Hurlbut". I laughed when I read that.

Just wanted a discussion on it.

It seems to still be going into lots of discussions in classes here.
