Magazine Cover

Bale appears on the cover of the January 2015 issue of Esquire UK magazine. He talks about his children.

Look, being a good parent is not about creating a good kid. It’s about a good person. And that means you’ve got to let them do their own thing. But there’s the other part of you that goes, “I just want them to stay this big all the time. I want them to always want to cuddle me. I want them to non-stop just be going, ‘You’re the best dad.’ ‘I love you, daddy’.” You know? But you’ve got to let them go.

It’s 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.

Oscar nomination

Bale is nominated for Best Actor at the 86th Academy Awards for portraying Irving Rosenfeld in American Hustle.

He’s the consummate con man who cons nobody with what’s happening at the top of his head. It’s like one ear throwing a lifeline to the other one, and nobody is fooled by it whatsoever.

American Hustle

In this comedy drama directed by David Russell, Bale plays Irving, who runs a modest dry cleaning business but also engages in counterfeit and a loan sharking on the side. After meeting the ambitious Sydney (Amy Adams) they soon attract the attention of an FBI agent who is eager to make a name for himself. He manipulates Irving into agreement to put their con skills to use for the bureau. Co-starring Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, Jennifer Lawrence.

He’s the consummate con man who cons nobody with what’s happening at the top of his head, It’s like one ear throwing a lifeline to the other one, and nobody is fooled by it whatsoever. That is so much more interesting than playing [him] for some sort of slick character

The Talks interview

Interview

Bale gives an interview to The Talks. He discusses the most fun he’s had making a movie, smaller indie films, and what makes him do the big movies.

I like the emotion. That’s what I do. When I first read a script and decide that there’s something in it that I can try, I like to remember that feeling – and that’s not about hanging out on the set and socializing. I can do that in my own time. I very much enjoy trying to put myself in other people’s shoes.

I didn’t think I was like this. Thanks to my wonderful wife and our little girl, who’s taught me so much more than I’ll ever be able to teach her.
