Hollywood Actor Christian Bale, who is gearing up for the release of star-studded comedy Amsterdam, revealed that he stopped talking to his co-star Chris Rock because the comedian made him laugh so much so that he “couldn't act.”
Christian Bale says he avoided talking to Amsterdam co-star Chris Rock on set as he was ‘so bloody funny’
According to Entertainment Weekly, the actor recalled meeting his co-star Chris Rock on his first day on set and sparking up a fast friendship. One that, ultimately, Bale said needed to be put on pause during filming because Rock was simply too hilarious.
"I remember his first day, I was excited to meet him. I'm a big fan of his stand-up," Bale shared in an interview. "Then he arrives, and he's doing some things… David [O. Russell] told him to tell me some stories that I didn't know he was gonna tell me, which is the way David works often. And I was loving it."
The Academy Award winner continued, “But Chris is so bloody funny, I found that I couldn’t act, because I was just becoming Christian laughing at Chris Rock. So, I had to go to him, I went, ‘Mate, I love talking to you, and we have mutual friends, but I can’t do it anymore. Because David didn’t ask me to make this film so he could just watch me giggle. He wants me to be Burt and I’m forgetting how to be Burt’.”
David O. Russell’s upcoming comedy is described as an original crime epic about three close friends who find themselves at the center of one of the most shocking secret plots in American history. The mystery-dramedy also stars Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Rami Malek, Taylor Swift, Anya Taylor-Joy, Mike Myers, Michael Shannon, Timothy Olyphant, Zoe Saldana, Robert De Niro, and more.
Amsterdam arrives in theaters on October 7.
