Christian Bale is known to disappear completely in his roles – apparently so much so that a large portion of the population watching movies did not know that the 44-year-old actor was from Wales.
But that changed on Sunday night when Bale went on stage at the Golden Globes to win the Best Actor Award in a Movie – Musical or Comedy – for his portrayal of former Vice President Dick Cheney in the satirical Biopik by Adam McKay, . Vice .
The actor thanked friends, family, and colleagues for accepting the award and also Satan for "inspiration" on how to play Cheney.
But his accent seemed to arouse the attention of the Internet even more than his sharp political barbs, with the fact that he is actually Welsh who seems to have surprised people.
It may be forgiven not understanding that Bale comes from Wales, given the way he so completely immerses himself – often in Roles as Americans. This included not only putting on weight, as he did for American Hustle or losing a whole bunch, as he did for the machinist ; We also saw Bale turn his voice into roles, be it the crackling growl he used in the Dark Knight trilogy, or the tired, easy-going cowboy trait he adopted 3:10 to Yuma . Vice is no exception, as Bale fully adopts the appearance, sound, and mannerisms of George W. Bush's shadowy perspective.
Nevertheless, the man has been famous for many years and has never existed made his Welsh secret a secret. He uses his natural accent in several films, including the 1987 Empire of the Sun . Some on the internet seemed to know that, but were still shaken by the accent that some have compared to a "comic book chimney sweep."
