Christian Bale called in to the Kevin and Bean show on KROQ-FM (106.7) in Los Angeles to say he was sorry for the tantrum on the set of ‘Terminator Salvation that was recorded and has been pinging across the Internet for days.

‘It has been a miserable week for me. I know I have a potty mouth ..., but I was way out of order. I acted like a punk. I regret that.... I make no excuses -- it is inexcusable.’


He went on to say that he hoped the backlash from his behavior wouldn’t stop people from seeing the film.

‘I’m asking people, please do not allow my one-time lapse in judgment, my incredibly embarrassing meltdown, to overshadow this movie and to have all of those people’s hard work go to waste.’
