Was the Christian Bale Freakout Good or Bad Attention?

February 7th, 2009 → 12:10 pm @ // 0 Comments

By now you’ve heard actor Christian Bale’s tirade on the set of his new movie, right? If not, watch, or listen, to the video below to hear it. Warning, it’s full of explicit language.

You gotta love the Internet. This clip has now been forwarded around the globe 100 times over and it just keeps going and going.

So… will this massive attention hurt him, or help him?

If it was you and me, who are not presumably famous Hollywood actors, then this would hurt us. But in all honesty, this won’t hurt him one bit. In fact, this will only make him more famous.

Why? Because of who he is. The public loves drama, and is more than willing to write something like this off as “Oh, those crazy actors”. In their world, ALL attention is good.

Look at Hugh Grant, who was busted in the prime of his career for trying to pick up a hooker. Did that hurt him? No. He’s an even bigger star now.

I could go on and on. In La-la-land… All attention helps.
