Can an Oscar win for “Best Supporting Actor” in the hit movie The Fighter help fix Christian Bale’s family? His mom sure hopes so.
Jenny Bale and her 37-year-old son haven’t spoken to one another since he broke down in a hotel suite back in July 2008, attacking his mom and his sister Sharon right before the London premiere of The Dark Night.
Now Jenny says of his win:
“I hope this Oscar can bring us together. The family are so pleased for him. This Oscar is well deserved. I saw other celebrities there with their mothers and got upset,” adding “I would have loved to have been there by his side. I’d love for Christian to walk through the door right now and. I’d give him a big hug and a kiss and we could forget about the last three years. I don’t know why he’s doing this.”
According to his mother in an interview with The Sun:
“If I had done something wrong I’d apologize, but I really don’t know why it’s come to this.”
Christian Bale says “it’s a personal matter” but won’t comment on whether or not he will talk with his mom anytime soon.
