... as Bruce Wayne/Batman in The Dark Knight
Many describe me as a "bold girl," so I decided to get the most controversial pick out of the way first. Yeah, it turns out Bruce Wayne is a bit of a yeller ... who knew? Yes, I heard the whole rant and, yes, I was amazed at how it never seemed to end.
However, I'm gonna be honest with you; I like my actors a little crazy. Just like I like my wide receivers a little outlandish. Seriously, I'd be disappointed if T.O. didn't start sobbing on the podium or start screaming at his own teammates on the sidelines. So why would it be any different for Bale? The man is a committed, passionate actor who played Batman with range we've never seen. Suddenly, Batman had nuance, depth, subtext, and finally some real sex appeal.
I mean, I love ya, Val, but you never took my breath away. Plus Bale's Welsh, and that's just hot. If I have to take a three-minute tantrum from a whack-job creative artist who looks like that and performs like that, I'll take it in a racing heartbeat. (Remember this is a "hot list" not "Who Would You Most Trust with Your 3-Year-Old Niece?" list.)
