Christian Bale Offers Ben Affleck Advice on Playing Batman 0


In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, Christian Bale mentioned that he has already talked to Ben Affleck regarding the latter’s upcoming role as the caped crusader, and Bale expressed his support for the actor-filmmaker:

“I wish him all the best,” said Bale. “He’s a very experienced actor and filmmaker and he’ll make it his own.”

Bale also emphasized that he’s done with the cape and cowl, and that it’s time for another actor to step up:

“Our thing’s finished, we’ve always declared it was finished and it should be passed on to another actor and it will be again after him.”

What’s interesting, though, is that Bale has a really practical advice for Affleck when it comes to playing the Batman:

“The only thing I said to him is just make sure he can take a piss without anyone having to help him, because it’s a little bit humiliating when you have to have someone help you out of the costume. That was my main piece of advice for him.”
