I don't have even one negative thing to say about them. I can tell you that they were just as impressed w Jayden as Jayden was w them smile" Jayden's mother Charlene wrote on Facebook.

Christian Bale Never Planned on Marrying

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Weddings,

Christian Bale and wife Sibi BlazicChristian Bale "never planned" to get married.

The Dark Knight Rises actor admits seeing his loved ones divorce when he was young meant he didn't hold the institution in high regard but soon changed his mind when he met make-up artist Sandra "Sibi" Blazic, whom he went on to marry in 2000.

"I never planned to marry. Everyone was divorced in my family so I didn't have very healthy ideas about marriage. Then I met Sibi and suddenly it seemed a fantastic idea," he said.

Christian and Sibi have a seven-year-old daughter Emmeline and the actor thinks being a father is the "best thing ever." He added to East Living magazine, "Nothing can prepare you for fatherhood. It's the best thing ever. I don't want to leave my daughter's side for one second."

While Christian is very close to his wife and daughter, the same cannot be said of his relationship with his mother Jenny or sister Sharon, whom he hasn't spoken to since a furious row at his London hotel before the UK premiere of The Dark Knight four years ago.


Christian Bale Thinks Tom Hardy is ‘Phenomenal’

Bane and BatmanChristian Bale thinks Tom Hardy is a "phenomenal" actor.

The 38 year old actor claims his talented The Dark Knight Rises co-star "knows his s**t," but says the heavy costumes meant the pair didn't get much interaction.

"Tom is phenomenal. He's an extraordinary actor. If I were a director I would want Tom to be in my movies. He knows his s**t. But it's a funny distance that you have in these movies, literally, by being cocooned by a cowl. I don't truly feel like I've worked with Gary (Oldman), even though we've done three movies together. And likewise with Tom, we're both behind these masks. He's feeling the isolation as well. It's a strange feeling. So we agreed after this we'd like to work with each other on something one day!"

Christian reprises his role as Batman in Christopher Nolan's follow-up to The Dark Knight, and Tom plays arch-rival Bane. Nolan is insistent this will be the final time we see Gotham City.


Christian Bale Wants a Fourth Batman Film

Christian BaleChristian Bale would ''love the challenge'' of playing Batman for a fourth time.

The actor portrays the Caped Crusader and his alter ego Bruce Wayne for the third time in The Dark Knight Rises and though it is expected to be the final film in director Christopher Nolan's series, the 38-year-old star hasn't ruled out returning to the character again in the future.

"My understanding is that this is the last one. I think it's appropriate, I think it's going out at the right time. But... if Chris came to me with a script and said, 'You know what? There is another story,' then I would love the challenge of making a fourth one work," he said.

However, the director appears to have suggested there definitely won't be a fourth movie, saying the third film marks the "end" of the superhero's story: "What drew me to Batman in the first place was Bruce Wayne's story, and that he's a real character whose story begins in childhood. He's not a fully formed character like James Bond, so what we're doing is following the journey of this guy from a child who goes through this horrible experience of becoming this extraordinary character. That, for me, became a three-part story. And obviously the third part becomes the ending of the guy's story."

Christian Bale Will Miss the Batman Suit

Christian BaleChristian Bale will miss his Batman suit, despite its heat and the headaches it caused him.

The Dark Knight Rises star appears as the caped crusader for the last time in the final instalment of the trilogy, and although the character's trademark black suit was awkward to swear, it has a special place in his heart.

"For all the discomfort and the heat and the sweat and the headaches and everything from it, when you sit back and watch the movie at the end of the day, you go: 'Well, that's f***ing cool.' I will miss that, it was a good bit of rubber," he said.

Meanwhile Christian's co-star, Anne Hathaway, who plays Batman's adversary, Catwoman, in the film was excited when she saw the clever way they worked her character's cat ears into the costume, as they are a pair of goggles which flip up when not used, to look like points on the top of her head: "I got chills when I saw that. I was so happy they had such a clever solution to a really iconic but sometimes unnecessary part of the costume."

The Dark Knight Rises - which also stars Tom Hardy as supervillain Bane - is in theaters in July.
