Christian Bale

The most glamorous awards in the business are scheduled for this Sunday, and excitement is building; mainly because we're GAGGIN' to see what's in the notorious goodie bags.

The annual Academy Awards are filled with prestigious Oscar statuettes and celebrities dressed to the nines, and the nominees famously receive ridiculously boujée gift bags.

Why, you ask? Apparently, they need trips to exotic countries and hand-made chocolate truffles as well as awards and haute couture red carpet looks.

Last year, apparently the swag bags were worth a whopping $40,000. 2019 seems a little bit more extra, and more 'down-with-the-kids.'

Apparently, the $100,000 goodie bags include chocolate truffles infused with cannabis this year, and are distributed to the 25 nominees in acting and directing. The speeches could be pretty loose…

California has recently legalised the drug for recreational use, so the nominees can calm their awards ceremony nerves.

The 2019 swag bags also feature skin care products infused with the drug (cannabis facial moisturiser anyone?) and a free membership of the first cannabis-friendly social club in LA.

Private “phobia relief" sessions with "the world's number one phobia expert" are also on offer as a freebie for the Hollywood stars, according to The Telegraph.

They can also decide between a boat trip down the Amazon or to the Galapagos Islands, and a week in a California spa. Oh, and a holiday at luxury villas in Halkidiki, Greece, as well as an invitation to Flora Farms in Los Cabos, Mexico

A “Mister Poop" toilet plunger is also gifted, strangely, and up to $30,000 of treatments including fillers, botox and chemical peels at from Dr. Konstantin Vasyukevich

The company who manufactures the chocolates warns anyone who is unused to cannabis to start low and go slow, instead of wolfing down the entire pack at once.

That'll be a hard one, considering the celebs barely eat for the entire day of the Oscars. This years' nominees including Glenn Close, Bradley Cooper, Lady Gaga, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz, and Richard E Grant.

A company called Distinctive Assets are putting together the cannabis gifts this year, with the founder saying they decided to include them after the drug was legalised.

Lash Fary said: "This year, we are so excited about the legalisation of cannabis in California so we will be including a number of items in that category." Gowan, Lash, you mad scone.

Mr Fary added: "These are folks who have access to everything and can afford to buy anything they want, so we just want this to be fun for them. Hopefully we are also introducing them to some new brands and experiences they wouldn’t otherwise know about.”

Oscar-winning actress Susan Sarandon admitted in 2013 that she was high on cannabis at many Hollywood events; “I would say almost all, except the Oscars."

The 2019 Oscars ceremony is already facing controversy, after Kevin Hart dropped out as host.

Jungle Book fans cannot wait to see the upcoming film Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, and it’s easy to see why.

The movie looks unbelievable, featuring a never before seen side of the beloved boy that has been raised by a family of wolves.

The new film explores his coming of age journey into manhood. Torn between two worlds, Mowgli must accept his destiny and become a legend.

The newly released trailer captures the intense drama, thrilling action, and overwhelming love that encapsulates the boy’s life.

As humans move into the jungle, he feels forced to pick between man and animal, facing dangerous creatures along the way.

Mowgli, played by Rohan Chand, has never truly belonged in either the wilds of the jungle or the civilised world of man.

Now he must navigate the inherent dangers of each on a journey to discover where he truly belongs.

The film features an amazing cast including Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

Andy Serkis, Freida Pinto, Matthew Rhys and Naomie Harris also star in the adventure alongside newcomer Rohan Chand in this visually spectacular and emotionally moving childhood classic.

The film will be released globally on Netflix on December 7.

Here is the full trailer:



Two years ago Ashton Kutcher took on the role of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

Unfortunately, not many critics had praise for the film or his portrayal of the tech-giant. E! News said it was an "unsatisfying portrayal of an icon who deserved better."

Now Michael Fassbender is taking on the role in Steve Jobs, the biopic directed by Danny Boyle. 

Michael Fassbender will play Steve Jobs in Universal's film to be released in October.

The film, and Michael's performance, has been the subject of much buzz already. At a recent press conference in New York, the Michael, 38, was asked about what kind of work he put into preparing for the role.

The German-Irish actor admitted that he knew very little about Jobs or technology in general before the project. 

"I'm not very interested in technology. I use it pretty poorly. So everything was new to me to be honest."

Michael Fassbender as Steve Jobs in the Universal film.

The actor, who apparently opts not to use a smartphone, also revealed that he was not the first choice to play the part:

“Obviously I don’t look anything like Steve Jobs. That was the first thing I said to Danny. I said: ‘Christian Bale looks a lot more like Steve Jobs than me.’”

Christian Bale was actually supposedly the first actor to be offered the role. 

So, how did Michael prepare himself to take on such a well-known figure? The Guardian reports that a 'smirking' Michael informed the press: "I studied Ashton Kutcher."

Although, Steve Wozniack, the Apple co-founder told Deadline:

"I saw a rough cut and I felt like I was actually watching Steve Jobs and the others…not actors playing them."

So perhaps Ashton's performance did give Michael some clues after all? 



Christian Bale has never been one to hide his feelings; who remembers that infamous meltdown he had on the set of Terminator: Salvation when he went to town on the director of photography for basically being alive?

Well, it looks like the British actor will continue to say whatever he thinks whenever he wants if his latest interview is anything to go by.

The Dark Knight star sat down with The Wall Street Journal to discuss his new role in Exodus: Gods and Kings and let his feelings for much-loved actor George Clooney be known.

When asked about paparazzi invasion, Christian calls George’s take on the media ‘boring’ and he doesn't stop there!

He then goes on to say: “It doesn’t matter that he talks about it. It’s like, come on, guys, just shut up. Just get on with it and live your lives and stop whining about it. I prefer not to whine about it.”

While he used far less expletives in this rant than in others, he still didn’t hold back, did he?

Christian Bale is probably the only person in the world who would call the newly-wedded Ocean’s Eleven star boring and whiny, right?



Christian Bale obviously took a liking to being a hero when he played Batman, because he’s back in a new film called Exodus: Gods and Kings and he’s playing Moses. Yes, Moses from the Bible.

Will he be victorious as he battles for his people’s survival? Who knows?!

Well, we all know really, but still, it looks like it’s going to quite the epic battle film! Watch the trailer below for a glimpse of what’s to come.



Oh Jen, you really do keep us young.

The starlet has spoken about her disappointment following the kissing scenes she shared with on-screen husband Christian Bale in new movie American Hustle.

American Hustle director David O. Russell, who was spilling the beans on Jen’s real thoughts on her scenes with Christian Bale, recalls her saying: “I finally get to make out with Christian Bale and he’s a really fat guy. He’s Fatman, not Batman.”

To be fair, Bale isn’t exactly in the best shape of his life in the film and is a long way from his portrayal of Bruce Wayne in the Batman franchise, but for someone who got make out on screen with Bradley Cooper, we feel you have nothing to complain about, Jennifer!
