    He’s one of the most dedicated actors of his generation. He stands out because of the commitment and reality he brings to every performance. He’s a visceral actor.

  2. Will Hodge says:

    Christian says nothing but good things about the people he’s worked with, at every opportunity he puts someone else in the spotlight. Such a rare thing to see in someone so talented

  3. KyleskillerLemonade says:

    One of his most iconic voice acting roles was as Howl in “Hayao Miyazaki” Howls Moving Castle. He also voiced Thomas in Pocahontas

  4. The Russian44 says:

    He’s in one of my favourite movies all time. His role in The Prestige is magnificent

  5. Chief Willsen says:

    Mr. Bale, the prototype of a real human being and absolutely one of the top 3 actors of all time.

  6. Emma Bennett says:

    The way Christian Bale completely understands the satire of American Psycho is so refreshing cause often actors never comment on the actual message of their films, in fact they avoid it. Especially if it’s a movie like that one.

  7. Robert Hart says:

    I don’t even think of him as a celebrity, just a pure artist. What an actor!

  8. John Mushitu says:

    I’m not even exaggerating when I say, Bale’s performance in American Psycho is one of the best ever on screen

  9. OPrime9 says:

    Accepting the challenge of playing Batman because “If I don’t have the skill to rise above that, then I don’t deserve to” is exactly the mentality that makes Bale one of the best actors in the world. Impressive is an understatement for this guy. Pure genius at his craft.

  10. Light Above The Sky says:

    Actors like Christian Bale, Sam Rockwell, Jake Gyllenhaal, heath ledger, Denzel Washington, Daniel Kaluuya, Steven Yeun, Lakieth Standfield, Gary Oldman, Joaquin Phoenix are the reason why I love film. They are so captivating within each role and they keep my eyes glued to the screen.
