21 Inspirational Christian Bale Quotes

Last Updated:

I love Christian Bale’s acting;

In Batman, The Fighter, 3:10 to Yuma, The Machinist, you name it.

The one thing I admire most about Christian Bale is his willingness to commit fully to his roles, including losing and then re-gaining an incredible amount of weight in short periods of time.

That’s commitment.

21 Inspirational Christian Bale Quotes

1. “Everyone always tells you that you’re the only one that can do this or that role right, and if you say no, they go to somebody else and tell them that they’re the only one that can do it right. But when they’re talking to you, you’re always the ‘Best Actor of Your Generation.’– Christian Bale

12. “I never want to turn something down because I’m afraid to do it, because of some idea of image or whatever. That was never anything I set out to do. In fact, the opposite, I always want to confuse people in terms of any kind of image and be unpredictable in any kind of movie I make.” – Christian Bale

13. “It’s about pursuing it rather than waiting to see what comes along. That’s partly because I found myself getting typecast, as everyone does unless they pursue roles that are very different from what they’ve done before.” – Christian Bale

21. I’ve had some painful experiences in my life, but I feel like I’m trivializing them by using them for a scene in a movie. I don’t want to do that. It just makes me feel kind of dirty for having done that.” – Christian Bale
