Quotes from Christian Bale

  • I have a theory that, depending on your attitude, your life shouldn’t turn into this ridiculous masquerade that so many people seem to live in.
  • I’m English. Our dentistry is not world famous.
  • I’m afraid I’m boring.
  • I love the idea that there is a magical element to movies. How many times have you seen an actor in a movie whose character you only know? It’s wonderful, isn’t it?
  • Basically, I’m not trained, so I just follow my imagination and try to empathize as much as possible with the person I’m going to play.
