CHRISTIAN Bale (pic) has blasted George Clooney for “whining”. The ‘Dark Knight’ actor has hit out at the ‘Monuments Men’ star – who married lawyer Amal Alamuddin in Venice, Italy, in September – for making “boring” complaints about being hounded by paparazzi, insisting people in the public eye should just get on with their lives and ignore the extra attention.
He said: “It doesn’t matter that he talks about it. 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.”
While the 40-year-old star – who has a nine-year-old daughter and three-month-old son with wife Sibi Blazic – is renowned for his hot temper, he always tries not to get into confrontations with photographers, even if they deliberately try to provoke a reaction and “kill” his “humanity and dignity” with their remarks.
He recalled in an interview with WSJ magazine: “I was in Italy with my wife. I would go to work; she would leave the hotel.
“There would be a man who stood outside .â€‰.â€‰. and say the most obscene things imaginable to my wife .â€‰.â€‰.
“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. So you’ve got a choice.” â€“ Bang Media
