LOS ANGELES, CA – Audio surfaced this week of Christian Bale losing it on the set of his new film Terminator: Salvation. Now the sentient machine he was berating is considering suing for emotional abuse.
During shooting, the rogue machine, one of many Terminators in the film, was asked by the director of cinematography to inspect the lights for a scene. Being new to film sets and governed by the Three Laws of Robotics, he went immediately to the light fixture, passing through Bale’s sight line off camera.
Bale proceeded to spend three minutes yelling at the machine for its lack of professionalism. (The audio can be found here; it contains graphic language)
The machine, one of many living robots created for the film by James Cameron’s workshop, at first did not understand what it had done wrong. Only weeks old and not fully programmed for hostile encounters, the machine unintentionally provoked Bale and was completely unequipped for the emotional onslaught that resulted. Later, robotics experts had to talk the machine down from self-termination.
Since then, the machine has spoken with lawyers from the ACLU and is considering legal action.
Lawyers contend that the robot was not adequately programmed to deal with the emotional abuse from Bale, and they may seek restitution for the necessary patch to his operating system. Studio executives are expected to deal out of court.

i bet that recording will be more intense than the movie.
what a douche… people screw up.
get over it batman
He is not a d**che, mate! And I think he's held on to his career and family longer than Brittney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Brad Pitt, ect. and all those other "great" celebrities. Give him a break – I'm sure you've cursed more than he did in your life than he did in his rant! Atleast he apologized and didn't beat the director of photography to death like Chris Brown tried to do to Rihanna. So, don't be daft because he's not a selfish pr*ck or d**che or a-hole – he's an excellant actor. Cheers.
Chill down there’s actor’s and there’s drama queens…. They take multiple shots of each scene, so what if one is screwed, he was doing his job and didn’t realise… you shouldn’t be allowed to act as if you think your better then everyone else on the set, who wants to hire a person like that anyway??? i agree with Blago lol douche
Nice and intresting article. I've bookmark this 🙂
Christian Bale shouldn't be bashed this way. I don't excuse his behaviour but yes, he made a major mistake and shouldn't have yelled at the lightening guy. The director of photography should obviously known that stepping into a rolling scence is stupid – he is paid to fix the lights before shooting a scene. And besides, Christian Bale could have done worse and I respect him more than I do for all the viewers that call him names just as bad as his rant and I like him even more than Chris Brown. Christian Bale is an underated actor and he deserves to be respected and not thrown around because he lost his temper.
