Celebrity Christian Bale would like celebrity George Clooney to stop complaining about privacy. “It doesn’t matter that [he] talks about [the paparazzi],” Bale tells The Wall Street Journal Magazine. “It’s like, ‘Come on, guys, just shut up. Just get on with it and live your lives and stop whining about it.’” Turns out he’d rather whine about it himself: “I was in Italy with my wife. I would go to work; she would leave the hotel. There would be a man who stood outside … I know what he’s after; he has a strategy there. Am I able to say I’m not gonna give him that satisfaction of angry Christian Bale coming after this man? But equally, he’s killing my humanity and my dignity as a husband if I do not, and he knows this. So you’ve got a choice.” Can you really blame them for wanting to hear that famously gruff Batman voice?
