Christian Bale hits back on calls to cut Ledger’s final performanceJuly 1st, 2008 - 7:57 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, July 1 (ANI): Hollywood actor Christian Bale has hit back on calls to cut late actor Heath Ledger’s final performance, insisting they are “bloody insane”.
The Batman star hit out at the people asking to cut the scene featuring Ledger’s The Joker character in a body bag from the new Batman film The Dark Knight. Bale wants the scene to remain intact.
“I know there are a lot of people out there who don’t think this movie should be shown. But, if you’re asking my opinion, I think that’s bloody insane,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
“I also think it’s an insult to Heath and everything he stood for. I don’t think anything should be cut - I think it’s the movie he wanted to make,” he added.
Bale has also said that the Dark Knight would be a celebration of the ‘Brokeback Mountain’ star’s life and work. He insisted that it would be “rude” not to run with the integral scene. (ANI)
