Amongst the vague, but disappointing chatter, that actor Christian Bale was arrested today in London for assault (of which kind, we have no idea) against his mother and sister, I also came across an interesting tidbit that the actor is vegetarian. This may be a small detail to some, but for those that still believe vegetarians/vegans can’t possibly bulk up, I offer Bale as additional proof.
Apparently, the actor had an early influence from an animal-activist parent and went completely veg after reading the story Charlotte’s Web. He’s also a devoted animal lover, with two dogs [Mojo and Ramone] and three cats [Miriam, Molly, and Lilly], all of which are strays that he found. For your trivia pleasure, here are some additional Bale facts courtesy of IMDB:
>>Christian is active in many organizations, including Ark Trust, Greenpeace, the World Wildlife Foundation, the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund, the Redwings Sanctuary, and the Happy Child Mission, and a school for street kids in Rio De Janeiro.
>>Auditioned for the role of Jack Dawson in Titanic (1997) and almost got the role but people felt that it wouldn’t be “fair” having two Brits playing two Americans (Rose was American as well, she says in the movie that the Titanic was a slave ship bring her back to America).
>>If he plays an American character, he will use an American accent in all the interviews related to the film. He says he does this so the audience isn’t confused.
