Christian Bale claims the trust between cast and crew was compromised on the set of 'Terminator Salvation' after his on set rant was made public
Christian Bale feels betrayed by the film crew who leaked his angry rant online.
The 'Dark Knight' star is happy to accept the backlash following his four-minute, foul-mouthed tirade against a 'Terminator Salvation' crew member who distracted him during a scene.
Bale acknowledges his attack was "overboard" but insists it shouldn't have been made public.
He said: "I did it, it's in the public space. I take the consequences for it. I'm not hiding from that. I went overboard.
"I'm not making any excuses, but there is an essential trust and it's not a tacit one, which is every sound guy says, 'We are not recording, we are not even listening.' So, well, there goes that.
"I do stress though, it's not in anyway a trust that's there to cover up bad behaviour. It's not about that. I'm not whining, but it's an essential trust that's needed for creativity."
The 35-year-old actor also blasted the trend to include unseen footage and behind-the-scenes material on DVD releases, insisting it is spoiling the film industry.
He added to Total Film magazine: "I just don't think it's in anyone's interest to know that much either. I'm actually someone that's very anti the whole B-Rolls, DVD extras and stuff like that.
"I understand people are interested, I get that they want to hear about it, but to me I look at it as old school movie magic and with magic you do not reveal your secrets."
