Christian Bale’s daughter is going to have to wait a bit if she wants to be just like daddy.
Bale, who is currently a front runner to win an Oscar for his role in ‘The Fighter’ revealed that he want’s his little girl to enjoy a regular childhood and remain being a until she can make that decision on her own.
“(I) didn’t like that (being famous as a teen). That wasn’t for me at all. Some people can deal with it, but I found it to be a complete pain in the arse and embarrassing. Also, there was the annoying notion of everyone going, ‘Ah, you should know better’ when I was done for shoplifting. But, no, I shouldn’t have known better. There was no reason I should. I could have done without that side of things. It was nice to go travelling and have those experiences (filming movies), but look, if anyone in my family – my nieces or my daughter – wanted to start at that age, I’d absolutely believe in and support their dreams, but I would tell them, ‘No bloody way – not professionally.’
It’s just too young. You need to be anonymous at that age, you need to go and get into all sorts of trouble and not have anyone know who you are. It’s ruined when everyone knows who you are.”
It’s a smart plan. She’s got plenty of time to become an actress if that’s what she wants. No need to shove her into it now. Shell always be Christian Bale’s daughter.
