Un-Christian Bale thanks me for inspiration!
While accepting the Golden Globe for best actor in a motion picture comedy or musical, Bale also thanked writer and director Adam McKay, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of "The Big Short," for hiring him to play Cheney in the movie.
He added that he's "cornering the market on charisma-free assholes" -- the last word was bleeped out by NBC.
"Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role," he continued.
Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney, a daughter of the former vice president, tweeted a response to Bale in which she referenced a 2008 allegation of assault against the actor.
"Satan probably inspired him to do this, too," Cheney wrote, before linking to a 2008 article on Bale's arrest.
