fact or fiction

We just returned tonight from vacationing in Canada. Although it was so much fun, we are absolutely pooped and have much unpacking to do. But who wants to unpack when blogs need to be written!??! ;) I am very behind in my Dark Knight review. Of course, Christian Bale was awesome. It seems that with the unexpected death of Heath Ledger and also his amazing performance as the Joker, Christian's take on Bruce Wayne is being overlooked. If you have ever seen The Machinist or Rescue Dawn or any of his movies, you will know that Christian Bale takes his roles very seriously. It is no different with Batman. He is a perfect match in his acting ability as the Batman, when up against Heath Ledger as the Joker. Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine are perfectly cast and mix well with the rest of the bunch. Definitely need to see this movie if you haven't already.

What I really want to touch on are the recent reports regarding the above mentioned actor and his family. My sister T is the best at keeping me updated. She receives the latest celebrity gossip by Perez Hilton via Google Reader. Of course, I have been on Bale's side all along. But here is the latest on the situation. Will be posting pictures from our holiday soon.

Every day hour we're learning a bit more about the "incident" between Christian Bale and his mother and sister.
As we
mentioned yesterday, there might be some bitterness between Bale and his mother, a former clown.
When Bale's parent's divorced years ago, his mom forced him to choose which parent he wanted to live with.
Christian moved to L.A. and chose his dad, who later became his manager.
And as for the police charges, Bale's camp believes it is most likely
motivated by money.
Apparently his mother was "extremely jealous of both his and his dad's success."
As for the "assault" that took place last Sunday at his hotel room, it's been reported there was some physical contact, but nothing violent. It's being described as either a push or a brush, though no one was hurt or even fell.
However, his people still believe the main reason behind filing the charges is purely financial reasons.
As of today, some magazines have already been offering large amounts of money for the mom and sister's story.
We say, forget the mom! If she wants to offer the story for free, then let her. But if not, don't pay her a nickel.
If she really wants to tell her story and isn't motivated by money, she'll do it for free

it really is too bad that people keep bothering him about these rumors, he seems like a solid guy in general

I know! He does seem very genuine and down-to-earth. I hope it just all goes away and he can go back to being perfect. ;)
