Harrison Cheung holds grudges to Christian Bale for never being paid for his work as a publicist and webmaster It is true that Cheung did a good job, but he considered himself as a member of the Bale family, giving his time to someone he saw as a brother C Bale Then he began to ask for his payment So Mr Bale asked him to sign an NDE confidentiality agreement that Cheung refused to sign.Do I imagine things or Cheung was preparing this biography since his first meeting with Christian B This NDE would prevent him from publishing it.So when you have a guy who holds it against another whose biography he is writing, can we believe what he told I do not doubt that there are truths No one have any doubt that Christian B may have an explosive temper But should we generalize on the basis of two well known incidents And those people who told that C Bale had a great sense of humor and was fun, where were they mentioned Nowhere By cons, Cheung mentionned all Bale s foibles and ridiculed all his family.Cheung even told that once, him and C Bale were listening to a movie together and C Bale farted and the fart was so loud that Cheung jumped Are you happy to learn that There is things in this book that no one wants to know.We can see things in many different perspectives Someone who does not want to participate in the promotion of a movie can be considered as a capricious man, who only wants to do what he pleases but he can also be seen as someone who does not want to become a publicists and journalists whore Bale doesn t want to lie and put fake smiles on his face to better sell his movies Cheung preferred to show him as an unruly child who refuses to do his homework, because homework sucks, rather than showing him as an adult who believes that his job is to be an actor and a really good one , not to become a salesman.So I emerged from this book thinking that someone knowing nothing of Christian Bale who would read this book would find C Bale detestable And someone who knowswould find Cheung despicable As always, the middle path is the way to wisdom and to truth Bale is a tormented soul, an actor who does not want to become a star, but still want to be recognized as a great actor There is nothing very usual in him But that is what makes him interesting I am sure he will surprise us in many ways in the future.I still find him very tanlented And, oh, soooo handsome lolllll The New World American Psychohttp www.youtube.com watch v t6B1XL Woooooo (((FREE PDF))) ☉ Christian Bale: The Inside Story of the Darkest Batman ↟ The darkest Batman is unmaskedDuring the London press junket for The Dark Knight in the summer of , Christian Bale was infamously accused of assaulting his mother and sister at the five star Dorchester Hotel Six months later, a recording of Bale s rant on the set of Terminator Salvation was leaked, and the star s anger began to define himBut beyond his notorious temper, Bale, an Academy Award winning actor for his role in The Fighter, is known for his ability to physically transform himself for roles in American Psycho, The Machinist, and as one of Hollywood s most revered and bankable characters BatmanIn Christian Bale The Inside Story of the Darkest Batman, Best Biography winner in theIndie Excellence Awards and finalist in theIndie Book Awards, Bale s former publicist and assistant Harrison Cheung his real life Alfred shares an inside look into the little known personal life of the intensely private and reclusive actor In the first biography of the Batman star, Cheung, who lived and worked with Christian and his father foryears, shares firsthand accounts of the Bales familial dysfunction, Christian s morbid fascinations and dark humor, and his extreme dedication to his craftAware that Bale hated his traditional publicity duties, Cheung launched an extensive Internet marketing campaign for the actor, built the first official actor website for him, and cultivated the Baleheads, an online fan community that was used to garner editorial coverage and ultimately help Bale secure the role of the Caped CrusaderWritten with veteran Hollywood and entertainment reporter Nicola Pittam, Christian Bale The Inside Story of the Darkest Batman uncovers Bale s transformation from shy, English child actor to Internet sensation to Hollywood bad boy FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE US AND CANADA ONLY I don t know why I read this book Christian Bale is not my favorite actor he s not even my favorite Christian hel lo, Mr Kane But, I am a huge Batman fan, and he did a very, very good Batman And he was memorable in American Psycho, based on a book I hated to love.I m not particularly interested in celebrity stories but I am interested in interesting stories, and luckily for Cheung, Bale has one His father, David, was at once protective father and self described con man To me, he is mos I don t know why I read this book Christian Bale is not my favorite actor he s not even my favorite Christian hel lo, Mr Kane But, I am a huge Batman fan, and he did a very, very good Batman And he was memorable in American Psycho, based on a book I hated to love.I m not particularly interested in celebrity stories but I am interested in interesting stories, and luckily for Cheung, Bale has one His father, David, was at once protective father and self described con man To me, he is most distasteful He claims to have quoted from Roots when Christian, his only son, was born yet Roots was published two years after Christian was born He took Christian from England to California against his mother s wishes, and lived off Christian s income as an actor because he couldn t work on his visa When Christian s mother would call, he would whisper that she was calling for money so Christian wouldn t talk to her He was an open racist, and didn t pay his bills The list goes on and makes me very angry to read David Bale was void of integrity That he married Gloria Steinem is one of life s strangest ironies Cheung politely portrays him as a colorful and charming character, and I m sure he was But still, it was sad to read and yet perhaps Christian s most interesting back story I saw an interview with Bale recently he does few, and is quite reclusive The journalist was starstruck and nervous she asked obvious, yes or no questions and he was indulgent and kind with her The last question was whether he liked the secrecy of the Dark Knight movies because he didn t have to see the press He flashed his overbite smile and simply said, yes I felt really sorry for him at that moment We always imagine Hollywood stars as soaking up the fame like sponges, burning it up like fuel For an actor to have come that far while hating the attention, well, it says a lot about his dedication to acting He told Cheung he wanted to be an actor, not a movie star Apparently he would attend press events unkempt and stinky, as his rebellion against what he was forced to do to be able to act He had very little control in his life, and unlike his father seemed to have some integrity Cheung manages to weave a tale that is actually worth reading, about an interesting person and his rise to fame I enjoyed it, in spite of myself.Yet when I finished it, it left a very bad taste in my mouth It seems that Cheung wrote the book because he never got paid a cent by Bale, even after being his publicist and assistant for years, and basically launching his status as internet phenom He deservedBut Cheung comes off as a shit for writing an intimate portrait of a very private person Maybe he never got paid, but working with Bale jumpstarted his career as a Hollywood publicist he never requested a contract because he was a fan In other words, he made his own bed They broke professionally around the time everyone wants to know intimate details before the incident with his family and the police, before Batman came out, before the rant on the set of Terminator Salvation Cheung gently reminds the reader what a big role he played in Christian s life I believe it, and it s necessary to develop his credibility But I find it hard to believe that Cheung sent Christian the exact Batman comics all three movies were based on before he got the role the trilogy companion book says the plot was so secretive it even had a code name, and they had no idea a trilogy would be made at the time So I started to question Cheung s truthfulness for the whole book But no one looks rosy here Bale comes off as a shit for making all this money finally, and never paying Cheung a dime Father David Bale is a shit for any number of reasons take your pick Gloria Steinem is a shit for admitting, after David Bale passed away, that she married him so he could stay in the country No one looks all that admirable by book s end, and I feel like I need to go take a shower after all this sleaze The only person who most absolutely does NOT come across as a shit is Ewan MacGregor Maybe I should have read a biography of him instead There is a spoiler alert near the end of this review I went into this book expecting it to be crap I even refused to buy it, borrowing it from my local library ebook section instead, so as to not reward this guy for writing it It did not disappoint in the crap expectation category Having said that, though, I m actually glad I read it I LOVE Christian Bale, so yes, I m another biased fan I had read other reviews mostly negative and I m in total agreement with the common theme in critiques There is a spoiler alert near the end of this review I went into this book expecting it to be crap I even refused to buy it, borrowing it from my local library ebook section instead, so as to not reward this guy for writing it It did not disappoint in the crap expectation category Having said that, though, I m actually glad I read it I LOVE Christian Bale, so yes, I m another biased fan I had read other reviews mostly negative and I m in total agreement with the common theme in critiques It IS very repetitive Many times he would repeat basically the same line only a couple of paragraphs apart He bashes Christian s father for living his life through his son but the author himself seems one of the biggest culprits of that He has the absolute low class of revealing Christian s daughter s real name, even though they tried to keep that from the public He just seemed to want to paint Christian in a very narcissistic, volatile light SPOILER ALERT Here s, strangely, why I m glad I read this book There was a part of me that always feared Christian used steroids to alter that body of his for the parts that he has played How could he possibly not have used them to go from The Machinist to Batman Begins right This guy swears Christian didn t Guess I felt that if he had this clown would definitely have exposed that to make him look even worse Honestly I don t know I mean when I first picked up the book it was basically cause Christian Bale was on the cover and of course the title was attractive The inside story of the darkest Batman so yeah I wanted to know the inside story of the most real Batman ever I was so excited that I didn t even research the author, I didn t even know who was that Harrison Cheung So I start reading and everything is fine until I start realizing who this Cheung is, former employee of Christian Bale Honestly I don t know I mean when I first picked up the book it was basically cause Christian Bale was on the cover and of course the title was attractive The inside story of the darkest Batman so yeah I wanted to know the inside story of the most real Batman ever I was so excited that I didn t even research the author, I didn t even know who was that Harrison Cheung So I start reading and everything is fine until I start realizing who this Cheung is, former employee of Christian Bale who never got paid now wants to make money out of the best Batman ever cause lets face it no one cares who is Harrison Cheung, so I read the book but I can t stop but feeling how he is angry at Bale and then I read the whole cover By the man who helped make him a phenomenon and there it was I finished the book just cause I spent my money on it but I felt pity for the guy who writes a book out of despair, I feel it was his way of revenge for not getting paid all those years, I don t know what he was trying to do with all of that, but honestly who cares Christian Bale is the best Batman and that s why he ll be remembered for years, but this book is just a 10 minute fame, sure you ll read things about Bale but I definitely believe is not worth spending your money Harrison Cheung, a Canadian who loves movies, was Christian Bale s unpaid personal assistant for many years He does not have a very high opinion of Mr Bale, whom he characterizes as incredibly self centered Disdainful of publicity to an extreme, Bale didn t even attend Heath Ledger s funeral because he didn t want to face the public, even though Bale and Ledger had become friends Some people get along with Christian Bale Heath Ledger was one, and Russell Crowe is another This book is ful Harrison Cheung, a Canadian who loves movies, was Christian Bale s unpaid personal assistant for many years He does not have a very high opinion of Mr Bale, whom he characterizes as incredibly self centered Disdainful of publicity to an extreme, Bale didn t even attend Heath Ledger s funeral because he didn t want to face the public, even though Bale and Ledger had become friends Some people get along with Christian Bale Heath Ledger was one, and Russell Crowe is another This book is full of short, interesting tidbits, but it also contains some strange errors and omissions When mentioning Christian s interest in playing Mercutio in the Baz Luhrmann Romeo Juliet film of the 90s, Cheung and co author Nicola Pittam mention that Bale lost the role to an African American What an odd, vague way to describe Harold Perrineau, the actor who not only steals the movie with his impassioned portrayal of Romeo s volatile friend but is also well known to American audiences through the TV shows Lost and, now, Claws Do the authors really not know who Harold Perrineau is Another section refers to Colin Farrell as a British actor Colin Farrell Is Irish Irish people are NOT British, and since Cheung lived with a British family Christian, Louise, and David Bale brother, sister, and father for years, shouldn t he know this Cheung also has a low opinion of Winona Ryder, a former friend of Bale, his co star in Little Women, and the one who introduced Bale to his wife, Sandra Sibi Blazic He describes the petite star as foul mouthed and rude The whole narration has to be taken with a small grain of salt because Cheung obviously has a bone to pick with the Bale clan They owe him thousands of dollars, if he genuinely never received a paycheck for working as Bale s personal and social media assistant from the earliest days of the Internet Maybe he s exaggerating, or maybe he has cherry picked the incidents that paint Christian Bale and his semi con artist father in the worst possible light I don t know It was still an interesting, relatively quick read I purchased this book at Barnes and Noble with my own funds as was not obligated in any way to review it that was a huge waste of time and moneyi regret spending money even though i bought it used smart move by the seller really poor writing spoilers I must admit, that as an avid Christian fan I suppose that makes me a Balehead , I was slightly biased going into this book However, after finishing, I feel fairly certain that I can stick with my original assumptions about Christians character Harrison Cheung, while maybe Christians publicist and supposed friend, didnt actually provide any FACT that I couldnt find myself on the internet which, according to him, is all thanks to his hard work lol The book is really repetitive spoilers I must admit, that as an avid Christian fan I suppose that makes me a Balehead , I was slightly biased going into this book However, after finishing, I feel fairly certain that I can stick with my original assumptions about Christians character Harrison Cheung, while maybe Christians publicist and supposed friend, didnt actually provide any FACT that I couldnt find myself on the internet which, according to him, is all thanks to his hard work lol The book is really repetitive, especially in the first few chapters, and is really focusedon David Bale Christians father , than Christian himself Ive always thought that, since we dont ever see or hear from Christian that often, that he probably didnt enjoy publicity, and I was ok with that His privacy should be allowed, no matter what profession he s in As a matter of fact, I like his mysteriousness, and find itenjoyable to have short gaps in the release of his films The anticipation makes itexciting As for the parts of the book where Harrison talks about Christians odd behaviourwell, they just dont seem completely believeable Especially the letter about the fan who needs to be eliminated with a screwdriver through the eye C mon Really He finishes the book, again, with facts that ANYONE could find, as he doesnt have first hand accounts to recall after his fallout with Christian Needless to say, Im STILL a Balehead after reading, and will continue to go to the movies to see Christians films Even if he decides to curse out a light guy on a movie set again, I ll still be a fan lol Amateur writing, bitter tone to the entire book and it did nothing but give me a bigger appreciation for Hollywood s rare leading man, Christian Bale He doesn t follow rules, has a temper who doesn t and hastalent in his pinky than half of the crap producers give their audiences This author tries hard to get readers to dislike even be disturbed by Christian Bale but his efforts come across as merely desperate
