Christian Bale Likes Hanging Out With Losers

Christian Bale has revealed that for some reason, he really likes hanging out with losers – possibly because he thinks they’re just more “fun”. He says successful people can be a bit uptight because they have everything so planned out. He explained:

”One thing I’ve heard consistently said to me throughout my life is, ‘You know what I’ve noticed about you, Christian? You hate hanging out with winners. You love losers. The more of a loser, the more you love ’em.’ I hate the ‘loser’ title, but I do kind of realise there’s something to it. The more successful you get, the more you have to fit into a certain kind of a successful mould. Successful people plan their days, and they waste no time whatsoever. It’s all about quality, quality all day long. Losers waste their time. People who’ve failed miserably in their lives are much more fun.”

The actor also says that his wife often has the ability to terrify him and she once chased him down in a car:

”My wife was a stunt driver–she was chasing me through the city in ‘Batman’. She was driving one of the cop cars. She can do 180s and stunts and all that. She terrifies me. My wife terrifies me.”

Christian adds that his wife loved when he had to actually gain weight for  his ‘American Hustle’ role, because she felt she looked good next to him:

”You know, my wife kind of liked Irv in ‘American Hustle’, because she looked really skinny standing next to me. That’s what she said. She loved it. She was like, ‘Keep getting bigger. I look fantastic and skinny.’ ”
