Christian Bale is not your typical GQ coverboy, but that’s exactly where he’s landed this month, in part because he cares about his newest collaboration with David O. Russell, Amsterdam , on which Bale is also a producer. The $82-million film has an uphill battle in its first week of release.

I care, you know?” Another thing he cared about was not getting stuck playing Batman after the success of his billion dollar-grossing collaboration with Christopher Nolan on the Dark Knight trilogy. But if he did, he said, there would be an upside: He’d finally get to quit acting. … [Read more...] about Christian Bale Admits He Worried About Getting Stuck Playing Batman: “I’ve Never Considered Myself A Leading Man.
