Golden Globes 2019: Christian Bale thanks Satan in his acceptance speech

Christian Bale thanks Satan or inspiring him to victory at the 2019 Golden Globes.

Bale, who gained a large amount of weight in order to play the role of Dick Cheney in the political satire Vice, ran away from the Globes with the gong for ‘best actor in a comedy or musical’.

Taking to the stage, Bale spoke in his real British accent and first began by thanking his wife. He said: “She knows the dumb crap that can come out of my mouth at times. I can sink and ruin a perfectly good movie and so-so career in one speech. So thank you for that advice, my love.”

After cracking some jokes about his ‘lack of charisma’, Bale thanked Satan for the inspiration: “Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration for playing this role.”
