Christian Bale was once asked whether he had had trouble meeting women after his memorable appearance as Patrick Bateman in Mary Harron's American Psycho (2000). "No," he replied. "Actually, the first thing that my wife ever saw of me was a picture from that movie. I think I was kind of standing naked, covered in blood, with a chainsaw. And at that moment she went, 'He's the one!'"
["Whilst Bateman is incredibly vile, he does have a certain charm," Bale added. "When I first went to Wall Street, a few people shook my hand and went, 'You know, Patrick Bateman is my hero.'"]
[Bale once made a pass at Drew Barrymore. "She was advanced and I wasn't," he recalled. "I tried to kiss her, and she ran." (He was 12.)]
