The terrifying way Bret Easton Ellis met Christian Bale

Larry King NowDec 05 '16

The first time he met Christian Bale, ‘American Psycho’ author Bret Easton Ellis says the actor showed up at a bar in character as Patrick Bateman.

Larry King: Did you know Christian Bale when he was cast?

Bret Easton Ellis: The first time I met Christian Bale was when – he wanted to meet me. He wanted my approval, even though he had already been approved by the studio and the director. He wanted my approval, and so he told me to meet him. And it was at a restaurant down on Beverly Blvd and I was at the bar and suddenly I got a tap on the shoulder and it was Christian Bale completely dressed like Patrick Bateman, completely acting like him, with that accent shaking my hand. And of course the movie hadn’t been made yet so he didn’t know how chilling it was going to be, but it was pretty chilling.

Larry King: Pretty chilling.

Bret Easton Ellis: And so by the time I sat down, after about five minutes I asked him, you just have to stop this. I want to enjoy dinner.
