It’s been a mixed bag interviewing child and young teen stars. I remember one teenage actress throwing a hissy fit at her mother because she didn’t want to do the interview. Then there was a five-year girl who looked like a deer in the headlights. She only started to talk when I whipped out photos of my cat. And there was another time when I showed up to interview a teenage actress at her family house and felt like I walked into an episode of “The X-Files.” Of course, I have a wonderful memory with the late Anton Yelchin who was a sensitive old soul at the age of 12 when I interviewed him in 2001 for “Hearts in Atlantis.” I interviewed him one more time-the year before his tragic death and found he was just as sensitive and lovely. And then there was Christian Bale. I knew immediately watching his extraordinary performance in Steven Spielberg’s 1987 epic “Empire of the Sun” that the British actor had the talent to become a major star. Little did I know he would out De Niro, Robert De Niro. I recently saw his extraordinary turn as George W. Bush’s stealthy vice-president Dick Cheney in Adam McKay’s “Vice.” He’s already earned a Golden Globe nomination and is considered a major contender for the lead actor Oscar. And he has gone the full Bale for his performance — packing on 45 pounds, shaving his head, bleaching his eyebrows and studying countless Cheney tapes and interviews to play the role. Sitting there at the Arclight, I couldn’t help but remember my interview with Bale 31 years ago for “Empire of the Sun.” At 13, he still may have looked like a little boy — he was short and was sporting spiky hair — but he had an intensity and no-nonsense quality that belied his years.  He certainly wasn’t the most verbal young actor I had encountered. I had the feeling that he’d rather be anywhere then sitting in a hotel room with me. Bale didn’t even smile for the photographer. DISCUSS All the Oscar contenders with Hollywood insiders in our notorious forums As with many performers I encountered early in their career such as George Clooney and Johnny Depp, I have followed Bale’s career through the Disney phase (“Newsies,” “Swing Kids”) and the adorable heartthrob phase (“Little Women”). I even saw 1994’s “Royal Deceit,” which was released in a few countries in Europe as “The Prince of Jutland.” Directed by Gabriel Axel of the Oscar-winning 1988 foreign film winner “Babette’s Feast,” this is the Danish tale Shakespeare based “Hamlet.” Only this film, which also features Helen Mirren, Gabriel Byrne and Kate Beckinsale, lacks the drama, the tragedy and the poetry of the Bard’s. IMDb.com lists it as the worst of all Bale movies. Bale married in 2000 and also starred in one of his most controversial films “American Psycho,” in which he played a serial killer. And his obsessive devotion to become the character began in earnest with this film spending several months tanning and exercising to embody the role. Roger Ebert wrote: “Christian Bale is heroic in the way allows the character to leap joyfully into despicability; there is no instinct for self-preservation here, and that is one mark of a good actor.” He lost even lost 63 pounds to play the title role in 2004’s thriller “The Machinist” and then packed on 100 pounds to play Bruce Wayne in Christopher Nolan ‘s 2005 blockbuster “Batman Begins.” Bale seemed to blossom as a strong leading man and action star under Nolan’s guidance in their three “Batman” collaborations, as well as 2006’s “The Prestige.” And I admire how he’s evolved into character actor for directors David O. Russell and McKay. SIGN UP for Gold Derby’s free newsletter with latest predictions Bale finally took him Oscar gold in the supporting actor category-and lost 30 pounds- for his poignant turn as ex-prize fighter Dicky Eklund in Russell’s 2010 hit “The Fighter.” And Bale then gained 43 pounds, shaved his head and slouched so much it caused him to get a hernia for his lead actor Oscar-nominated comedic performance in Russell’s 2013 comedy “American Hustle.” He teamed up with his “Vice “director McKay for 2015’s acclaimed “The Big Short” earning another Oscar nomination as a hedge fund manager with Asperger’s. Bale is one of those actors who lets his work generally speak for himself. He and his wife and two children keep a low profile in Los Angeles. He loves animals.  The time in 2009 when his R-rated rant at the cinematographer for 2008’s “Terminator: Salvation” went viral. Bale took the high road and apologized on the Kevin and Bean radio show saying he “acted like punk” and his actions were “inexcusable.” I wouldn’t expect anything less from him.
