Christian Bale's mum jumps to his defense over foul-mouthed rant
Christian Bale's mum has defended her son over his expletive-ridden attack on a crew member on the set of Terminator Salvation.
Jenny Bale, 61, said it was 'upsetting' to hear the rant had become an internet hit, justifying his behaviour by saying he is a perfectionist.
The outburst occurred last year a few days before the actor was arrested for allegedly assaulting Jenny and his sister in London.
Although the outburst may go some way to the public understanding the incident at the Dorchester Hotel last year, the Welshman's mum said that she did understand why he got so angry this time round, although he may have been a little too 'fierce'.
'It sounds as if a lighting engineer got in the shot so I can understand his anger but not the length of the tirade,' Jenny said.
Bale's abusive rant at director of photography Shane Hurlbut, apparently contained 35 f-words.
It was caught on tape and remixed into a dance song by DJ Revolucian, which has now become an internet smash.
The film's assistant editor Bruce Franklin defended Bale, saying that it was just a 'moment' that passed, and that Bale was otherwise a consummate professional throughout the shoot.
