Lots of different husbands

Interviewer: Do you ever take your characters home with you and drive Sibi crazy?

Christian Bale: Some of them do stay with you, yes. I think she liked The Machinist the best, because I was so calm and quiet. I think it was a nice change for her. She doesn’t like all my characters. But she sees it this way – she gets to live with many different husbands.

A note on Christian Bale’s visit to CO

I LOVE that he did it, on his own—no studio pushing—and with his lovely wife. He is a class act. And not just visiting the memorial, but also visiting some of the victims in the hospital. 

But I have to say—I would have FREAKED if he’d come in my room unannounced, because when I’m in the hospital, i hardly ever put on makeup. I think I would’ve asked for at least three minutes so I could make myself presentable for Christian. And I still would’ve been speechless. 


My respect for Christian Bale as a human being just skyrocketed…

Batman star Christian Bale has made a personal visit to see seven victims of the Aurora movie theatre shooting to express his condolences to them and their families.

The 38-year-old British actor, spent two-and-a-half hours at the Medical Center of Aurora this afternoon with five patients admitted to the Colorado hospital and two others who had traveled from Denver’s Swedish Medical Center to meet Bale

The Oscar winning star of the ‘Dark Knight Rises’ made the visit to the hospital to talk to patients injured by James Holmes’ massacre last Friday, in which 12 people lost their lives and 58 others were injured.

‘The patients were really happy to meet Bale,’ said Bill Voloch, interim president of Medical Center of Aurora to the Denver Post.

‘They are obviously big fans of his movies. They wanted to see Batman and were really pleased to see Bale.’

Bale traveled with his wife, Sibi Blazic and met with a number of emergency doctors at the hospital, police officers and paramedics who were the first responders to the shooting at the Century 16 cinema theater in Aurora.

‘It was good for the patients,’ Voloch said about Bale, who spent around 10 minutes with each person. ‘We hope it was therapeutic for them, and all the staff really appreciated him coming.’

More massive kudos for Christian Bale—here visiting a shooting victim in the hospital

What a great, great guy. 

I really think Anna might go with Mary to Crawley House in S3!

This would be awesome. I can totally see this happening, since Mary will need a lady’s maid once she’s in her own house. 


Random spec… based on this article with Joanne Froggatt!

“Anna’s promoted later in the series to be an official ladies’ maid rather than a jack-of-all-trades housemaid doing ladies’ work.” 

And gets a hand-me-down dress from Mary, and talks about Mary’s support of her, still – but of course if M/M are married early in the series, the only way they can have their epic friendship still is if Anna is Mary’s official lady’s maid… in Crawley House!

Am I mad? :S

So many massive, massive kudos. Way to go.
