Christian Bale Thanks Satan For Helping Inspire Role In Vice

Christian Bale

Christian Bale credited “Satan” for inspiring his portrayal of Vice President Dick Cheney in the movie “Vice.”

Bale, 44, thanked his wife, Sibi Blazic, profusely before getting political.

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.

The critically acclaimed British actor said he was “cornering the market on charisma-free a—holes … What do we think, Mitch McConnell next?”

“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.
