Christian, Christian Bale Biography
Christian Bale was born in Wales, UK, in January of 1974. He grew up in Wales, England, and Portugal. Although he attended Bournemouth School, he dropped out when he was 16. When his parents divorced in 1991, Bales moved to Los Angeles, California, with his father. Although he worked in several television commercials and a few other roles in some miniseries, it wasn’t until he performed in the film Empire of the Sun, which earned him both fame and fortune. Bale won numerous awards for this film and the 15 year old earned widespread praise.
However, the young Bale was overwhelmed by the attention from both the press and schoolmates. He considered giving up on acting until approached by Kenneth Branagh, who convinced him to return to acting. Bale has since gone on to be one of the hottest and richest actors in Hollywood. He has done such blockbuster movies as The Dark Knight, Terminator Salvation, The Fighter, The Machinist, Public Enemies, and American Psycho. He earned $10 million for his role as Batman in The Dark Knight in 2008, and his net worth continues to increase with each film. Bale is a very modest star, however, and doesn’t seem interested in living the typical lavish lifestyle that many Hollywood stars are so prone to do. In fact, while filming Public Enemies, he turned down staying in a luxury villa and instead chose a simple, modest one bedroom apartment. Bale seems more interested in studying for his film roles than living it up at the clubs. In fact, Bale learned marital arts, dancing, and even went so far as to lose almost 35 pounds for one role.
Bale lives in a simple three bedroom house in Pacific Palisades, is reported to not own a cell phone, and spends most of his spare time with his two children or on social causes such as Greenpeace and World Wildlife Foundation. Even though he has a current net worth of $80 million and a new movie in the making, don’t expect to see this wealthy Hollywood Star at a Rolls Royce dealer anytime soon.
