This week we’ve been bringing you some choice quotes from Total Film magazine’s interview with Christian Bale.
Well, today, we’ve decided to give you some online exclusive goodness – cool quotes from Bale you won’t see anywhere else.
And it's ace stuff. Bale talks about his habit of adopting an American accent during filming, his take on John Connor, and why the Terminator franchise won’t miss Schwarzenegger...
On the accent…
I change my accent because it gives me more choice, more choice of roles. If you are born in America and have a non-regional American accent then you’re probably going to get the widest choice of roles around, but still you’re going to be restricting yourself from playing roles from all around the world.
And very much a part of finding a different character is the voice.
It’s so essential to who we are, you start talking in a different accent and you’ll going to not feel like yourself whatsoever and it’s a matter of you just keep doing it until you do feel like somebody again. It’s nice to make those transformations.
On John Connor…
Well he’s a slightly strange bird because obviously with his crazy mother who’s been telling him he’s going to lead humanity from the get-go he’s going to have a few hang-ups.
There’s not many of genuinely believe that they know their destiny, know their future so another very strange thing that’s difficult to understand for most and in this movie is he’s somebody as well who’s in dire straights.
They’re in a desperate struggle for survival each and every day and I think he’s somebody who’s – he’s somebody you want on your side in a crisis.
On John Connor’s look…
You have to look capable but I hoped to do that more with his determination rather than the physical aspect. He’s somebody who will not be beaten down ever. I wanted to get that wiry look of a solider who’s in the field all the time.
