We know Christian Bale has a temper after he was arrested before the European première of The Dark Knight last year, however now we have audio proof of his rage. The audio below begins with Bale getting angry at Terminator Salvation‘s director of photography Shane Hurlbut, after he walked on set during filming of a scene. We can only judge from this audio as we don’t know how Bale was that day, whether he had been filming for a long time and was tired, or whether he was just having a bad day. However he exploded and even director McG couldn’t control him.

Update: Assistant director and associate producer Bruce Franklin has given his thoughts. From E! Online:
“If you are working in a very intense scene and someone takes you out of your groove…It was the most emotional scene in the movie,” said Franklin. “And for him to get stopped in the middle of it. He is very intensely involved in his character. He didn’t walk around like that all day long. It was just a moment and it passed.
“This was my second movie with Christian, and it has always been a good experience with him,” added Franklin, who also worked with the actor on 2000’s Shaft. “He is so dedicated to the craft. I think someone is begging to make some noise about this, but I don’t think it’s fair. The art of acting is not paint by numbers, it’s an art form. “
