Despite not watching Robert Pattinson in ‘The Batman,’ Christian Bale thinks he’s ‘absolutely magnificent’

Christian Bale averages about 1.5 films a year when it comes to acting

He might watch even fewer movies when it comes to actually watching them

Oscar-winning Welsh actor Richard Curtis tends not to consume the things he's paid to make, and he admitted

Maybe tongue-in-cheek, that of all the films he's ever seen, Beverly Hills Ninja, a martial arts comedy starring Chris Farley, is his favorite film

In that regard, it's no surprise that Bale, who played Bruce Wayne in Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy (2005-2012)

Has not yet seen Robert Pattinson's pivotal role as the Caped Crusader in The Batman - despite giving the casting a thumbs up before

I don't watch a lot of movies.Bale's daughter, Emmeline, is 17 and his son, Joseph, is 7, and whenever I sit down to watch a movie I have to stop after 15 minutes and do something else

Whenever they watch it, I will definitely watch it
