“At first, I was somewhat hesitant to do the role. I mean, after all, Batman is an icon. But I remember, as clear as day, being at the grocery store the day the movie opened, and this little boy saw me. He couldn’t have been more than five years old. He just walked right up to me and hugged me. He hugged me, and I was so moved by it that I hugged him back. Then he looked up at me and said “You’re my hero.” And in that moment, I knew that not only as an actor that I had done my job, but that I had made the right decision to play Batman. And I’ve never looked back on my the decision to play Batman since.”
This man cannot get any cooler.

chameleon actors: Christian Bale
A movie star is someone people look at and go, ‘I want to be like that person’. There’s the responsibility of desire. It’s not something I’m interested in trying. I would fail miserably at it, so why even bother?

“It`s the actors who are prepared to make fools of themselves who are usually the ones who come to mean something to the audience.”
