Christian Bale: This is 40

Hello everybody, there’s a very important Hollywood birthday today!

Academy-Award winning Christian Charles Philip Bale was born on January 30th, 1974 in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales, United Kingdom.

Bale is one of my favorite actors and he’s dazzled in fantastic roles in movies like The Prestige, 3:10 to Yuma, American Psycho, The Dark Knight trilogy, Rescue Dawn, The Machinist, Empire of the Sun and American Hustle, for which he’s up for a ‘Best Actor’ statuette at March’s Oscars.


What is your favorite Christian Bale performance?


On another note, someone who just lost his Oscar nomination is former Academy governor Bruce Broughton. Hadn’t heard about something like it before. Read why he has been disqualified in the ‘Original Song’ category here.
