Christian Bale Says 'Terminator' Rant Shouldn't Have Been Leaked

Christian Bale admits he went 'overboard' on his F-bomb tirade on the set of 'Terminator: Salvation', but he doesn't think it should have been leaked.

"Hey listen, I did it, it's in the public space. I take the consequences for it. I'm not hiding from that. I went overboard," Bale tells TF in an interview.

"I'm not making any excuses, but there is an essential trust and it's not a tacit one, which is every sound guy says, 'We are not only not recording, we are not even listening'. So, well, there goes that."

"I do stress though, it's not in anyway a trust that's there to cover up bad behaviour. It's not about that. It's an essential trust that’s needed for creativity."

"I just don't think it's in anyone’s interest to know that much either," says Bale as he compares the leak to DVD extras.

"I'm actually someone that's very anti the whole B-Rolls, DVD extras and stuff like that. I understand people are interested, I get that they want to hear about it, but to me I look at it as old school movie magic and with magic you do not reveal your secrets."

"I'm not making any excuses. I'm not whining. I'm not going 'Oh well, if it hadn't have been for that!' But it's that. It's a creative trust. It's not a behavioural trust."

Bale apologized for what he called a 'deeply embarrassing' incident soon after the audio leaked, but you can be sure it will be years before the tirade is completely forgotten, as evidenced by the hilarious parody on 'Family Guy' a few weeks ago.
