    Wow. Talk about bad timing.

    It's not who you are on the inside. It's what you do that defines you.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but his performance is seen to be a weak spot in the movie, no?

    Could it be he's jealous of a person who's passed away??

    Is there a good time to assault your mother and sister?

    Probably just a publicity stunt to get the movie some much needed exposure...

    Sounds like quite a reach.

    I don't know if I'd call it weak. I think everyone pales in comparison to Ledger...but Bale didn't suck.

    I've seen at least two reviews mildly critical of his performance.

    (Granted, I haven't seen the film and actually haven't read much about it...)

    But it sounds like a slam dunk for Best Picture, and Ledger sounds like a slam dunk for Best Actor.

    Where does that leave Bale, oh he of I've-already-shed-65-pounds-for-a-role-what-do-I-have-to-do-to-get-my-effing-statue?

    I've been jealous before.

    I've never punched my mother because of it.

    Huge reach.

    This was overheard from the Bale household
