Christian Bale

When it comes to his work, Christian Bale is known for being a perfectionist, a trait that has clearly paid off, proven by the shiny Academy Award engraved with his name. However, the actor took things too far on the set of "Terminator Salvation" in 2009 when he was interrupted while shooting a scene and exploded into a profanity-laced tirade. The film's director of photography, Shane Hurlbut, accidentally entered Bale's line of sight while the British actor was filming, and the star flipped, dropping the f-bomb 36 times in a matter of minutes — all of which was caught on tape. Bale later apologized calling his behavior "inexcusable" and "embarrassing." But it wasn't his first temper tantrum. A year earlier, Bale was arrested after an altercation with his mother and his sister turned physical. No charges were filed.
