Actor loses his rag with member of the crew

An expletive-laden tirade by Christian Bale on the set of Terminator Salvation has been posted online.

The actor launches into a four-letter rant after he is distracted by director of photography Shane Hurlbut during an emotional scene.

‘Seriously, man, we’re f***ing done professionally,’ he says. ‘I want you off the f***ing set, you pr***.’

But assistant director Bruce Franklin has defended Christian.

‘He is very intensely involved in his character,’ he tells E! News. ‘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. He is so dedicated to the craft.’
