Christian Bale Tells George Clooney to "Shut Up".
Earlier Clooney had lashed out at The Daily Mail for publishing fictitious articles about his then fiancée's family. He received an apology from the website although this wasn’t the first time that Clooney was upset by his media coverage.
So, why did Christian recently call George's frequent complaints "boring"?
"It doesn't matter that he talks about it. Its like, 'Come on, guys, just shut up. Just get on with it and live your lives and stop whining about it. I prefer not to whine about it."
"Some people poke you like you're an animal in a zoo, looking for a response," he adds. "If you're smart, you don't give it to them. If you're dumb, occasionally, like me, you give it to them. And then they've basically got what they wanted. I usually regret it afterwards."
Unlike George, Christian hasn't let photographers agitate him. "I was in Italy with my wife [Sibi Blazic]. I would go to work; she would leave the hotel. There would be a man who stood outside...and say the most obscene things imaginable to my wife. I know what he's after; he has a strategy there. Am I able to say I'm not gonna give him that satisfaction of angry Christian Bale coming after this man? But equally, he's killing my humanity and my dignity as a husband if I do not, and he knows this," the star explained.
Although maybe, Christian should cut George some slack. The Gravity actor has been a tabloid target for decades, and George he told Larry King in the late '90s, "I was in a bathroom in Australia, and a guy followed me...The guy took a picture of me taking a leak. I draw the line at taking a leak. I've got to draw it somewhere."
