bale_vegetarianI once read somewhere that Christian Bale is fond of screwing with the media — answering questions with enigmatic responses, making things up, etc. This latest exchange, however, between the Dark Knight star and GQ Magazine is just f**king bizarre. Here it is below:

The bodybuilding and unbuilding you’ve done for your roles is alarming—the former all the more so for its being accomplished without any animal protein.
Actually, I’m in and out of the vegetarianism now. But yeah, the majority of the building up you’re talking about was done when I was still a vegetarian.

When did you fall off the wagon?
Just after I’d completed American Psycho [for which Bale, as the preening sociopath Patrick Bateman, got furiously ripped].

Dietary reasons? Or something to do with the character?
I was up in Toronto and went to see that movie Life Is Beautiful. By myself. And when I came out, I had a craving for blood unlike anything I had ever experienced since I decided to go vegetarian at the age of 7. It was a compulsion. It was undeniable. I went to several restaurants, one right after the other, and got the biggest, bloodiest steaks I could get my hands on. It was the first time I had tasted flesh in almost twenty years.

Life Is Beautiful.

That makes sense.

Life is Beautiful?! You mean a movie about Nazi, Germany and concentration camps turned Bale into a meat-eater? He’s either f**king with us in a very sick way or well, yea, I don’t know what to think. I mean, who the hell reacts to a movie like that in that way. (Christan Bale, Michael, Christian Bale.)

Yea, he’s got to be f**king with us.

    It sounds like he is saying eating meat is its own holocaust.

  • cbfan

    he probably said that because all the jews in the concentration camps were obviously on a forced vegan diet for many years. Not eating meat could have contributed to making them softer, weaker and unable to think rationally and defend themselves, instead, they turned the other cheek and awaited their death.

The reason for these advancements is not a sense of justice – because that can only mean going vegan – but is primarily driven by economics.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
